Rustic Barn Weddings and Gatherings



 Fall is a great time for intimate gatherings with family and friends.  Fall brings families together as people are thinking about coming home, spending time with loved ones and it’s a romantic time for a wedding.  You can set the setting for your guest as soon as they walk in by hanging wreaths of wheat and sitting decorative corn stalk bundles wrapped in fall foliage.  Fall is filled with beautiful rich colors of reds, oranges yellows and browns, as well as comes with an array of natural decorative pieces, such as pumpkins, acorns, cornucopias and gourds.  A perfect location for a fall gathering is in a rustic, natural yet intimate setting, such as a barn.  It can be casual yet elegant.  Decorating options are limitless.  Most barns have exposed beams, which provide lots of great lighting options such as hanging elegantly draped strands of white twinkle lights or lanterns.  Paper lanterns can be a less expensive alternative.  You can also use carved pumpkins with decorative patterns, rather than scary faces, or use paper bag luminaria to light a pathway, aisle or just to simply add more decorative lighting.  If you live in a climate where the leaves change color in the fall, use them as decoration.  For weddings, instead of an aisle runner, sprinkle leaves and fall colored flower petals down the aisle.   If you do not live in a climate where the leaves change in the fall, you can by decorative silk fall leaves.  You can also sprinkle these along with flower petals on your tables as decoration.  Also consider using carved out pumpkins as your centerpiece vase to put beautiful rich fall flower bouquets in.  Whatever your event, whether it is a wedding, special event gathering or Thanksgiving, fall is the perfect setting for an intimate gathering with friends, families and loved ones.

Bridal Fitness


The Bar Method just opened a new studio in my hood! It's a great way to get in shape for your wedding. The bar method uses a ballet bar as a balancing prop. It's similar to yoga, pilates and ballet because it focuses on stretching and strengthening the core muscles. Yes, your muscle will be trembling like you're sitting on a washing machine, but your abs will be rock hard!
