Canyon Run Ranch is a beautiful, vast farm with an 1850’s barn and 153 acres of placidity- exactly what the Hemler’s had in mind for their wedding.
Both the ceremony and reception were held at the ranch. There is a private residence reserved for the bridal party and when they are ready, they are taken by golf cart to the ceremony. After the I Do’s, several buggies escort the guests down to the barn for the reception.
With barn weddings becoming increasingly popular, people are wondering if achieving the charming, rustic style requires sacrificing an element of elegance (dealing with heat, dust etc). Well, I visited a wedding barn over the weekend that proved to me it is possible to achieve both. It was a scenic drive to JLH Wedding Barn, with acres of farmland, crops and animals, (I passed a pasture of cows on my way down the gravel driveway to the barn).
