Brookside Farm – what I like to call the grandfather of barns in Northeast Ohio. This rustic Northeast Ohio wedding venue held it’s first wedding in 2008 and has a popular spot for a Bride’s wedding day ever since! It’s just not the barn that the brides fall in love with, it’s the well kept green grounds, the rustic Chapel, the lodge for the Groomsmen, and the old Farm House for the Girls to get ready in.
When we arrived Friday morning to the Farm House, the girls were already in the chairs having their hair and makeup finished. They were ahead of schedule which made the morning for photos go so smooth. I can’t tell you how much stress being behind puts on a Bride on her wedding day. Especially when having beautiful photos at a gorgeous location is a top priority!
While the girls were hanging out at the Farm House in their adorable flannel shirts, the guys were enjoying their own laughs down the driveway at the lodge. There’s really no better way to enjoy the morning of a wedding than with your closest friends relaxing!
Soon it was time for Jamie and Daniel’s first look. As soon as Jamie said Daniel’s name, queuing him to turn around to see his beautiful bride for the first time, Daniel was ear to ear smiles. For the next several minutes, nothing in the entire world mattered but the two of them. Eyes locked, arms wrapped around each other. There was no better place to be.
After the first look, the day seemed to move at lightning speed. Before we knew it, it was time for Jamie to walk down the aisle with her daddy by her side to her soon-to-be husband. They had one of the best ceremonies I’ve heard in a long time. The preacher works with young adults at a local Church, so his sermon was heartfelt, and quite frankly, real life. Not that other ceremonies aren’t real life, I just found this one to be relatable to young marriages.
Everyone knows that after the ceremony comes the great food, delicious desserts, plenty of drinks, and crazy dance moves. With over 200 guests at this fall Brookside Farm wedding this past Friday, there were plenty crazy dance moves to go around! Bruce from Toe Tapping DJ did a wonderful job keeping that dance floor fun for all the guests to bust out their own moves!
Congratulations Jamie and Daniel! We loved spending the day with you and your families and friends! The day was beautiful, and we could not have asked for perfect weather for your fall Brookside Farm wedding!!
