The Barn Collective

Too fun not to share.

Our oldest son got married three years ago. An outdoor, April wedding at a farm venue in a far off land. Sandwiched between two Minnesota snowstorms, my sweet son married his beautiful bride. She was certain God would bless her with fair weather and she was not disappointed.

Isn't that a great spot for a wedding?
Montgomery, Minnesota
(Just a tad, or two, outside the city of Minneapolis...)

It was a great spot to house out of town family. A loft in the upper section and a bunkhouse in the basement, as well as an entire house across the driveway. We got to stay in the bunkhouse. Yes!

Michele's family did an incredible job of decorating.
Everything was perfect. Even the weather.

The ceremony took place out on the lawn.
It might not have been green yet, but the 70 degree temperatures were perfect.

 The reception and festivities were inside the first floor.
(We had the rehearsal dinner in the bunkhouse downstairs on Friday night.) 

When we moved the tables, there was plenty of room for dancing.
So fun!

The bride and groom. 
Aw... so cute.

And when the festivities were over, we put everything back in it's place.
I wanted to stay longer, but it was time to go.

Back to the city, the Minnesota flour mills...

... and The North Western Casket Company.

Next to the wedding, my favorite part was finding that my blog friend Kristina was living just four miles from the wedding venue. We had the wonderful opportunity to meet in person on Saturday afternoon before the preparations got into full gear.  
It was the perfect vacation.

Come join The Barn Collective with Tom.
