Their organic, yet timeless style came to life in our authentic English- style dairy barn. Gorgeous Persian rugs adorned the walkway to the alter where swaying willow trees became the back drop to their vows. Birch tree ladders with fresh green vines floated overhead with cascading Edison bulbs and it was topped off with confetti cannons blasting off during their last song – this wedding was unforgettable!
Alyssa and Jon wanted not only their venue and décor to convey their organic and natural style but their menu as well! We curated a seasonally inspired farm to table menu for their wedding day and chose to pair it with a dessert station that dreams of made of – Blazing Donuts! Flambeed local donuts create the perfect marriage when paired with fresh vanilla ice cream and endless toppings. Check out Alyssa, blazing donuts in hand, in front of her entire donut wall!
But please don’t just take our word for it, here is what Alyssa had to say about her wedding day at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills:
“I'm not really sure where to even begin because every single detail about our wedding day was absolutely perfect. From start to finish, every person from the Barns that was involved in our wedding went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy and taken care of. The fine attention to all of the small details did not go unnoticed. There were several aspects of the day which were very important to both myself and my now husband that we would have easily gotten caught up in the day and forgotten about, but our day of coordinator Cate (LOVE HER!) made sure that everything went off without a hitch! I am not using the word "perfect" lightly - the day truly was PERFECT. There was not a single detail overlooked and we were made to feel like celebrities all day. I can't say thank you enough because all of our dreams came true at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills. Aside from the actual day of our wedding, the planning experience truly could not have been made any easier! My fiancé was absent during the majority of the planning process as he was working in Europe, but all of the planners and coordinators went above and beyond to make the process easy from start to finish (thank you Jenna and Samantha!). From my first visit to the Barns where I toured the venue, to emails, phone calls and random drop-ins at the venue, they could not have made the experience any easier or more enjoyable! All questions were answered promptly (and I had LOTS of them!) and all visits were greeted with hugs and smiles. I never thought I would say this, but now that it's over, I actually MISS the planning process! Once again, I can't say thank you enough for all of the support and help in making our dream wedding come to life!”
