Red Barn Wedding (pt. 1)

My niece and her fiance'   married Sunday, June 24.     Amys dad  made all of the barbeque for 200 people  , there was  cole slaw, green beans and Miranda and I  made macaroni salad.  Many deserts were brought by various friends and family members.  Fresh fruit   ---    Oh yeah -and a  Cherry coke bar

  The venue was in Maidens Va. at the Adams International school .     Beautiful setting.   EVERYONE had a wonderful time.  


Above pic is the school directly across from the red barn.   The food was prepared in the kitchen here.
The window boxes had such pretty flowers planted.

we used the kitchen facilities here and you can see that  Miranda is

Hi Betsy,
Wow! What a fun place to have a wedding! The decorations were all so cute, loved the trunk idea. I bet all of those strung lights inside were beautiful at night. Thanks for sharing!
Happy Fourth to you!
