As it continues to snow outside it seemed an ideal time to revisit the warmer days of late September. Scott and Justine had their ceremony in the sheepshed at 4:30 with the added touch of having popcorn ready for their guests on arrival.
The bride was escorted down from the barn to enter at the west end of the sheepshed where we had seating for 130. After the ceremony we had drinks available both in a canoe.
As well we had set-up an outside bar using our locally produced wine barrels and our own straw bales.
Guests mingled under ideal conditions until asked to head in to the barn for dinner.
East and Main catered a reportedly excellent meal. We were set up as follows:
with flowers expertly done by Drew and Peter at Blooms . Here is another angle to see how the tables were set-up with paper runners.
Dinner was to be served at 7:15-7:30 as a fully plated meal. But to step back one little bit - as guests arrived in the barn they were greeted by a unique seating chart set-up:
stepping back for a larger angled shot:
It is always so appreciated by us to have so many rich personal items to work with They bring a depth and unique-ness which we value as these items truly differentiate one wedding from another here at Fields. There was a fun photo-booth - guests seemed to enjoy.
A bit dark - but we had halogens trained on the area to improve the lighting and success of the photos.
Our sound system had driven the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and speeches - then a band took over and kept the evening going in fine style.
As the evening proceeded East and Main did a well recieved Taco Bar and guests were then invited to enjoy homemade conserves.
They too were well recieved as the evening wound down under what we recall were perfect weather conditions.
We have just learned that the bride and groom are expecting - a further reason to extend best wishes to Scott and Justine from all of us here - best wishes from:
Pam and John, Monica and Elizabeth, Kailey and Lynne, and Me.
