Charming is a word we use a lot around these parts, but after spending some time with this lovely by Hailey Erickson Photography, I’ve come to the conclusion that this wedding is the definition of charming. Filled with sweet details and even sweeter little ones, it’s the type of wedding that will charm your socks right off, and it’s all waiting for you right here.
From the Bride… When Aaron and I started planning our wedding we knew we wanted a rustic look. Our search for a venue revolved around finding somewhere that we could incorporate a lot of burlap and Aaron’s cowboy boots. When we stumbled onto Centaur Arabian Farms, we fell in love with it! Not only is Centaur Arabian Farms a beautiful bed and breakfast and wedding venue, but also it was once an actual horse farm. Our ceremony was held under a gorgeous wooden pavilion where our guests had a view of the remaining Arabian horses in the background. After the ceremony, our guests moved to the completely renovated 13-stall barn where our reception was held. Our cakes were even displayed where the horses were once washed! The original wooden barn with added chandeliers and lace made it the perfect balance of country and elegance for our special day.
Even more than we loved our wedding venue we loved that our family played such a huge part in our wedding. From our sister-in-law capturing everything on camera to Aaron’s mom setting up the ultimate candy station, every one of our family members helped make the day perfect. One of the most memorable parts of our day was having Aaron’s older brother Drew as our officiant. The ceremony began with multiple embarrassing stories from Aaron’s childhood and ended with the sweetest vows in which I promised to always feed Aaron Chewy Chocolate Chips Ahoy (his favorite). The ceremony was very us, and having Drew marry us made the day extra special!
