Real Wedding: Katie + Brandon at The Barn at Valhalla

I virtually met Katie and Brandon about a year before their big day. They had chosen The Barn and wanted a little help with the logistics of the day. One of the things that I love about The Barn is the fact the couple. their families, and their bridal party can all stay on site. They had planned dinner, breakfast, and lunch for everyone staying there each day. It was such a nice gesture and it made the whole weekend feel so personal. They did their own centerpieces completed with potted "Herbs" to pay homage to the groom's last name Herb. Which by the way is really hard to pronounce correctly when you are taught to drop the H sound for the plant- but for their name, you pronounce the H sound.

The biggest thing about these two is that they just knew how to have fun. They were constantly laughing, smiling, and just seem to really enjoy their time together and with their guests.

The wedding took place out in the field under the trees and it was perfect. The trees gave some much needed shade and it really could not of been a more beautiful day. After the ceremony, the guests had cocktail hour by the fireplace. Dinner was under the tent and dancing was in The Barn. It was a night full of dancing and merriment. People kept commenting how this was the most fun wedding and it sure looked liked they had a blast!
