Wedding Day Magazine March 2017 Issue - Part 1 of 4

The Barn at Bay Horse Inn was thrilled when approached to host a stylized session for the March cover of Wedding Day Magazine.  It took a team of many talented individuals to put together this incredibly beautiful photo shoot.  Here are the results!  Our farm table was set by the window on a sunny snow filled day. You'd never know how cool it was outside with the warmth of the setting and the fireplace nearby. Be sure and read below for the talent behind these images. Part 2 and 3 will be published soon!

You may recall as we shared these engagement photographs several months ago.  In fact we used both of these images in a few print advertisements you may have seen.  We want to share a few of the wedding photographs below. We simply LOVE them.

Should you consider hiring a wedding planner?

by Alicia Wilson, of JA Alexandra Coordination and Design

Congratulations sweet bride to be!  What a wonderful road ahead of you.  Planning your wedding is certainly half of the fun.  Many of us have been planning our wedding day years before we get the diamond, so this will be a piece of cake!! You have the vision and family to help, now go plan the wedding of your dreams!

What type of bride am I?  Where will I have my reception?  Oh no, they’re booked- now what?  That doesn’t matter, my dress won’t look good there anyway.  I can’t forget to tell the florist that I changed my mind and I hate peonies today, but first I need to pay her. No, first I need to change my inspiration board.  I need to tell the venue that I changed my inspiration board.  How much was that again? My mom was in charge of that.  I’ll call her right after I call my friend Stephanie who is helping me plan the wedding and ask.  I have to wait until her baby is done napping though.  She’s just as excited to plan my wedding as I am!!  I am having so much fun!  My mother in law wants up lighting.  Where do I find up lighting?  Does the Barn even allow up lighting? RSVP’s are coming in!!  This is happening!   How will they get to the Barn?  Did I confirm the rooms at the hotel?  I bet the hotel will help me coordinate the shuttle on the wedding day.  I have the timeline memorized and Stephanie is helping.  Can Stephanie show the florist where I want the extra flowers?  Agh, Stephanie’s a bridesmaid.  She has to be with me and get ready.  My mom won’t mind.  Yes, she will make sure the DJ arrives and wait on the florist.  My cake is gorgeous!!  The photographer doesn’t have the timeline.  Can someone find the timeline?  Eek, I am getting married today.  Did I ever get a piece of cake?

Calm down sweet bride.  You’re gonna eat a piece of cake and I already gave the photographer your timeline.  I assure you of that.  It’s my job.  Continue reading.

Yours to borrow!

We just purchased these two vintage inspired arbors for our event barn! We thought they would be great for inside the barn.  Have your florists personalize for your special day!  Use one for your vows and another is available as you enter the barn if you'd like two! 

 

Exclusive Invitation

All who have reserved the event barn are invited to our Private Grand Opening event on September 15, 2016! You'll be able to see the barn and saloon as well as meet many of our preferred partners. We'll even have music and appetizers!  

We'll send more details later, so save the date for this exclusive event! Bring your fiancé (or a plus one). Don't worry your friends and family can see it at our public grand opening tentatively scheduled for Sunday, October 23, 2016. 

When booking a venue don't forget to ask...

We know how important choosing a venue is for any event. While many know the standard questions to ask such as capacity, food options, availability, etc. we wanted to point out a few items you may want to consider when choosing a venue.

  • How many events does the facility have simultaneously? Be careful if the venue serves more than one event at a time. You want to hear your band, DJ or MC and don’t want guests competing for parking, restrooms and even the coat check.
  • Do they have top of the line audio video equipment? If not, you may need to consider renting it or looking for another venue.
  • Are there plenty of photography opportunities? Avoid facilities with poor lighting or tinted lighting as well as too many mirrors, windows or stained glass that bounce lighting. Tip: You may want to select a photographer that is familiar with the venue. 
  • Does the venue have strong wifi? Guests love to share their photos, and if you are hosting a fundraiser or corporate event you’ll want your brand mentioned online as often as possible. If you are having your wedding, family reunion or any other private party you'll still want to see the various photographs your guests took as it may be weeks or months before getting your professional photographs back. Note: Be sure and hashtag your event so you can find your guests photographs online.

We want your event to be a huge success and hope these questions have helped.  For more information on Bay Horse Inn check out our FAQ section. Do you have more tips to share? We'd love to hear them.
