High Falls Weekend

We took a trip up to High Falls last weekend to explore the area, meet with vendors, and get away.  The region was covered in snow which made for a scenic but sketchy drive.  We made it there safely and in time for our first appointment, after which we checked into The Sheeley House a Bed & Breakfast next to Shadow Lawn, our venue.

That night, we went to an awesome place recommended by our our rockstar florists called The Country Inn.  They had an impressive 500 beers to choose from — truly a sight to behold.

The next morning Amanda’s family drove up to meet us and see Shadow Lawn for the first time…

Needless to say, everyone loved the venue and had a lot of creative ideas for how we could use the space to the fullest.  We had such a great time; it’s great to know that we have many more upstate getaways to look forward to.

Bonfire

I would say the big thing that sealed the deal for us about Shadow Lawn was the end of the night bonfire they offer.  It’s going to be amazing to wind down from all the excitement of the night with our loved ones, sitting around a fire.  I have lots of neat ideas for this part of the evening that I’ll definitely share soon!

And if you play the guitar feel free to bring it!  We can have a sing-a-long!!  km13

Barn Decor

I love the beautiful red barn at Shadow Lawn.  But one thing I want to be careful of is to not go in the rustic farm theme direction of decorating.  That just doesn’t say Amanda and Luke to me.  Instead, I’d like to use the raw space for beautiful lighting, soft colors and just an overall vintage chic feel.

Curtains for the barn!  Now you won’t find any hay at our wedding but I love the flowing white fabric welcoming you into the space.

This next one is perfect. It absolutely says “vintage chic in the woods”

How simple and beautiful are these hanging vintage jars with flowers and lights?  A definite DIY decor option.   The whole wedding where I found this picture is stunning.  I’m taking a lot of inspiration from it.
