A Rustic Wedding.

On May 17, 2014, Melissa married the love of her life, Wesley Howard. The ceremony and reception took place at  the White Barn in Prospect, Pennsylvania. This venue was more than perfect for the “rustic” theme that Melissa and Wesley were looking for. The barn has a very large gathering room, two lofts, a veranda overlooking a beautiful pond, and even a large modern basement where their guests enjoyed a remarkable cocktail hour.

Not only was this a rustic themed wedding, but it also had a  strong DIY element proving that a crafty crew and a creative mind can make the most beautiful wedding on a small budget. Melissa and Wesley had a blast enjoying the company of their guests and dancing the night away before speeding off in a vintage Jeepster to the light of hundreds of sparklers as their guests waved goodbye. What a romantic end to a beautiful and fun filled day!

We wish Melissa and Wesley nothing but happiness as their start their lives together as a married couple. Congratulations!
