Love should always be celebrated. However, my sister decided to take it up a really big notch this year for her daughter and son-in-law’s anniversary. If you have a barn, creativity to overcome more than a few obstacles and a few months of pre-planning time…you too can do this awesome anniversary celebration!
The happy couple and their mother-in-law (my sister) have agreed to let you see their fabulous celebration.
It is winter, it is unusually cold, so the unsuspecting couple were told to dress warm as they were being driven to a ‘restaurant you’ve never been to before’. Of course, they weren’t driven very far…they were driven from the carport to the barn (50 feet away).
Since it is wintertime and it is dark, she had battery operated tea lights and lamps wherever possible (you really don’t want to mess with live flames…one of our other sisters barn burnt down from just a spark!).
and did you see what was in the reflection of the mirror at the table above? The ‘coup de gras’ of the evening, my nieces wedding dress on a body form that my sister made herself. Stunning…
their photo cutouts placed in home made mason jar vases…
Happy Anniversary “William & Kate” a.k.a. Ben & Joanne! xoxo
