(Part 1 of 2)
Getting ready for your wedding day does not start a few hours before the ceremony. It starts many months prior. Those many months prior to this beautiful day, I met with the always smiling, Hayley.
During our meeting, Hayley explained that her wedding would be in a field near a barn. So, my mind formed a picture. I very much love barns and am always beyond happy when I get to know a new barn location that will house a ceremony of love.
Hayley is modest. When I arrived at this “barn”, it took my breath away – the perfect place for happy people. You will see from this post and the next that this barn was filled to the hilt with happy people doing what they do and enjoying coming together for such a celebration.
So, from the beginning…
The details were ready that morning. The dress of lace and boots of leather.
That’s where the similarities to the other weddings in barns ended… This place was filled with really fun things like construction cones, rusty metal, street signs, large construction machinery, and other very awesome things that would make this wedding very special to Hayley and Colin.
Oh I had fun with the rings!
Hayley was excitedly tending to last-minute details.
There was a very large and heavy rock to sign from their ground – a special way to remember their guests.
The cake shared the construction theme (road construction is an important part of their legacy).
Hayley soon disappeared to begin transforming herself from beautiful to stunning.
Colin was very ready to see Hayley. His boots hinted at the fun yet to come.
They opted to see each other beforehand and I was lucky to be there to help preserve Colin’s very first look at Hayley, his bride.
They were together for a few quiet moments before the guests arrived for their very intimate wedding.
I’m off to upload the wedding pictures now – part 2 will be ready tomorrow! Until then, here’s a peek at Hayley and Colin.
