Adi Loves Erin - An Enchanted Wedding at The Ruins

Adi and Erin were a true pleasure to co-create a ceremony with!  The sense of abiding love and commitment wed with elements of elegance can't really be described in words.  I will simply present the photo story of their day through the eyes of Kim and Adam Bamberg of La Vie Photography.

Wishing Adi and Erin a life of beauty and love!

The Kelley Farm Hosts Kris and Maria's Ceremony!

The brides take the floor and show their dance moves.
This weekend Kent and I were privileged to officiate for some pretty amazing couples.  One of them is Maria and Kris.  The two drive by The Kelley Farm on occasion and when they were considering a place to celebrate their commitment to each other, decided to stop in.  It was just what they were looking for:  a farm setting that brought back childhood memories, a beautiful place to affirm their love, plenty of open space, fresh air and more.

These are just a few photos I took that evening (more to come from Corliss Photography).
The two young men performed
"Bless the Broken Road" during the ceremony:
Dan Wheelon on guitar and Jesse Hull was the vocalist.

This is what the barn looks like.  The original structure was the center part, with the "wings" added when it was remodeled.  The building features radiant floor heat, two bars (one movable), a kitchen, a huge fireplace, screen for the slide shows and a huge patio for outside ceremonies/events.

Everyone loved the slideshow!  So many photos of Kris and Maria's journey to their life together.

I believe Maria prefers pies and Chris likes cakes
so both were available.
I like both as did most of the guests
so it was a great treat.

The ladies shared the first taste of cake.

They looked great in their coordinated pants suits!

Wishing Maria and Kris decades of happiness!

The two are thankful for all the help they received from friends, including Ann Robbin, who provided harp music before the ceremony and Connie, who presented a reading, for those who transported the flowers, helped decorate the barn and did so much more.

Snuffins Catering provided the yummy good, Turning Leaf Productions captured it all on video and David Leu was the DJ.
