Ceremony on Rand-Bryan House front lawn

Sunshine on Ashley & Courtney’s outdoor ceremony

With bright sunshine warming the grounds of the Rand-Bryan House most of the day on this April Saturday, late afternoon heat brought on a brief shower just before wedding time for Ashley & Courtney.  Not to worry…..chairs toweled off and ready to go in time for “here comes the bride”!  Nature wasn’t done yet as she offered a rainbow and a bald eagle in flight during the outdoor ceremony.  A delightful cocktail hour followed as guests enjoyed the porch and grounds for drinks and hors d’oeuvres with string music in the background from Save the Date Music.  Catering by Design’s dishes beckoned guests inside for a delicious buffet dinner with dancing, cake and fellowship to follow. Wishing the new Mr. & Mrs. Evans lots of happiness!


Outdoor wedding ceremony & brunch reception on the perfect spring day for Theresa & Steve

We still have some ideal spring wedding dates open for 2017 and are enjoying meeting with couples planning their special days.  Hope all of them get a day like this one earlier this year! A late Sunday morning outdoor ceremony, mimosas on the porch, a delightful brunch reception by Unforgettable Food Affairs and kids of all ages enjoying the grounds—–it was the perfect day for Theresa & Steve’s wedding at the Rand-Bryan House.  Late April provided ideal temperatures for hanging out on the gorgeous grounds at our wedding venue surrounded by rolling green pastures and evergreens.  The bride’s talented sister-in-law led the plan for the elegant shabby chic decor which suited the historic farmhouse setting.  There were lots of special touches to make this event enjoyable for all, including a kids’ activity table on the front lawn.  The bride’s friend & officiant, Stephanie Shaffer, added another special, personal touch as she performed the ceremony. This was a beautiful start to what we hope will be a beautiful marriage!
