A memorable rustic wedding ceremony in Western Pennsylvania complete with an outdoor ceremony and a barn reception.

Some of our favorite weddings and events we’ve done come with the more challenging tasks. Entering a space that a couple has chosen for their wedding venue and seeing a blank canvas may be scary for some, but it excites us to work with our couples and to not only see their vision and bring it to life, but to make it so unique to them and their big day.

That’s exactly what we did for the sweetest couple, Mary and Randall. There aren’t enough words to describe how kind these two souls are. From the minute we interacted with Mary, we could tell she is a self-less person full of love to give. And when we met Randall, he was so kind and we could tell he makes sure Mary puts herself first. They’re truly made for each other!

Mary and Randall decided to have their rustic wedding celebration on Randall’s parents’ property, a small farm in Washington, PA. With a beautiful set up to hold their outdoor ceremony, the couple wanted the onsite barn to replicate one big Italian dinner with a sophisticated rustic flare.

With the help of all the amazing vendors and a three-day set up the barn was transformed into a romantic, Mediterranean inspired ambiance. Our favorite moment was Mary’s face when she saw the barn transformation. Check out the before and after of the barn below - it’s amazing what three days and a great team of vendors can build!

Mary’s mom passed away a few years ago, and we couldn’t help but shed a tear the a butterfly graced her bouquet after the ceremony. It’s these little moments that truly make us love our job.

The barn was transformed with an olive hue and hints of purple. Candles accented the luscious greenery runners that lined the gorgeous rustic wooden tables. Wine bottles used to display the table numbers complimented the table décor, while hanging floral wreaths suspended from the ceiling adding that extra ‘wow’ factor.

From the uniqueness to the love Mary and Randall share, this is one rustic wedding we will never forget and can’t thank these two enough for letting us be a part of it!
