A sunny Saturday afternoon welcomed Lorrie and Bobby’s wedding guests to The Barn. A sweet ceremony starting at 2:00 made for a warm and sunny glow billowing into the windows and doors lighting the aisle for Lorrie’s grand entrance. Using the beloved white rustic chairs from Oconee Event Rentals, the family and bridal party walked by rows of this unique seating selection down an aisle lined with blue, yellow and white flower petals.
After the ceremony, the staff at Crooked Pines Farm flipped the venue into a reception site while guests enjoyed a sampling of cheeses, fruit and crackers from At Your Service Catering. When the couple arrived back inside
following outdoor shots with photographer Paul Gilmore, the guests circled around to watch Lorrie and Bobby share their first dance as a married couple. Shortly following, they joined their parents in the traditional wedding dances as everyone witnessed the love these parents had for their children.
When the dances were done, it was time to cut the cake and share a toast or two. The cake, created by Publix of Greensboro, was accompanied by decorations made by a family friend. Topped with two love birds in a nest, the cake brought forth more of the rustic country feel the décor displayed in the barn. Glasses filled with apple cider in hand, the couple stood aside while Lorrie’s father, Bobby’s mother and other family members toasted to this young couple’s future together. A unique toast included a story about a box in which the couple was given an empty box to fill with memories from their big day.
Sometimes the smallest ceremonies bring out the sweetest memories. An intimate day with family and friends close to the couple ended with a run through bubbles, well wishes and bags packed for a fun trip to Helen, Georgia. We wish Lorrie and Bobby the best and am so glad they chose to spend their day with us!
