The Old Farmhouse - Bridal Prep Room
The old farmhouse sits humbly at the end of the gravel driveway. Her journey has been long and the appreciation of her simple architecture and her many birthdays has finally come full circle. She was built a few years before the Civil War and her life has been simple one as she has been a home for many-a farmer's family throughout her 160+ years. After years of use and frankly, some abuse and neglect - she is finally hitting her stride again. Her renovations have been as authentic as possible - keeping as many of her aged boards and floors and features as feasibly possible. Her beauty and even her imperfections are contributing to making the most amazing photographs - more so than I could ever have imagined. In 2015, our brides will have access to not only the bridal suite but to the full downstairs of the farmhouse. This will allow more room for bridal preparation or for the her family that gives you a bit of privacy so you can chill - a place to prepare - a place that is either air-conditioned or heated (as needed) - a place to have some silly moments with the bridesmaids - and an opportunity to step back in time a bit and feel the ambiance of this vintage and homey old farmhouse. This access is allowed only until the ceremony.
THE GROOM'S ROOM; A.K.A. "THE MAN CAVE"
We have a room for the men to be able to leave their belongings - be able to cool down in an air conditioned room when the temps demand it - and close enough to be beckoned when needed. Our Man Cave is primitive indeed but with the leather couch and chairs, extra large wall mirrors so that they can primp if they need to, snack if they wish, and chill under a large a/c unit - what else do they really need?
