From Annika of AE Pictures Inc.… This wedding is a step up from the average “rustic chic” affair! A family member of Yvonne Chapman was lucky enough to have her come over from Hawaii to design their day. Months of preparation went into restoring their barn to hold 200 people for dinner. A color palette of white, ivory, beige, and brown neutrals painted the event, including a dress code for the guests. Sheer linens draped the ceiling of the barn and long banquet seating. Vintage accessories, glassware, vases, pitchers and props were gathered from family members for over a year and dusted off to provide unique decor for the ceremony and reception. A blondie bar greeted guests as they entered the farm. The bride came in on a tractor in front of blooming sunflowers where the couple were married in front of their barn. Live music and an outdoor dance floor awaited them on the other side, where guests gathered on hay barrels with an open bar, oyster bar, bounty table, bocce court and photobooth. Several food vendors brought together an eclectic palette after the couple rang the iron triangle for dinner.
