It's been a while since we have gotten on the blog! But we have been hard at work finishing up construction and jumping right into hosting weddings. It's been a long journey but we are one month in already, with 5 weddings under our belts. That leaves 22 more to go this year! We have been blessed with so many couples who have put their faith into us and stood behind our journey. We can't wait to celebrate with each and every one of them this year and for many more years to come.
Now that our construction is complete, we want to share a few pictures with you! Let's start with the lower level:
It's just amazing how much the lower level has transformed! It has a rich, warmth feel with a little modern edge. Everyone comments on the floor and can't believe that it is concrete! Our contractor, Lorenz Concrete did an AMAZING job with their hand crafted rustic wood floor. Can't help but give them a plug (if your looking for an amazing wood look concrete floor you MUST give them a call).
Now onto the upper loft. This is the main event space and although the transformation wasn't as dramatic, the elegant additions we added are so stunning!
The largest project was the flooring. We installed maple floors on top of the original flooring. It was a three week project (one we did ourselves with the help of many family members!) and turned out amazing. The light floor against the darker wood structure is a great contrast. We added three large chandeliers and a few string lights just for a touch of that elegant look you want in your barn wedding. We also added two staircases, windows, and an elevator.
The other big project was the landscaping. Although it doesn't look too different than it did before, the process was dramatic!
The patio and fire pit areas are a highlight of the venue. Everyone loves to be outside on a nice summer evening, under the string lights and enjoying the sunset.
We laid 30,000sf of sod and prayed for rain! Watering was a full time job for a few weeks but we managed to keep it all alive! We kept plantings to a minimum this year with plans to add more in 2019.
The past two years where a whirlwind. We had many ups and downs, setbacks and surges forward. Our family and friends were a huge help throughout the way. We will keep the blog posts going, with weddings as the main focus! Thank you to all our followers and we hope to see you on the farm soon!
