Host Your Shabby Chic Barn Wedding with Saxon Manor
Barn weddings are a big trend among Tampa Bay, FL area brides. Saxon Manor has just built the most charming wedding barn in the area. Tucked back in a natural, wooded setting is the Shabby Chic Barn dressed in red paint with white accents and surrounded with a natural, lush, Florida landscape. Newlyweds, Jessica and Paul Kinsman had their dream wedding come to life at the Shabby Chic Barn on Saturday. The ceremony site was perfect with a beautiful, jasmine covered archway, grandfather oaks backdrop, and rustic bench seating. After the ceremony, cockatail hour and mingling took place under the natural canopy and included a photobooth, appetizers, and cocktails.
When the massive, double barn doors opened to the guests, the beauty of this spectacular wedding venue was breathtaking. On site event designer, Dorothea Stephens, made sure everything was set perfect, right down to the tiny details. Solid wood, farmhouse tables mixed with charming, whitewash family tables were graced with burlap and lace runners. Natural logs held flickering, candlelite lanterns with mason jar floral arrangements as centerpieces. The china was set just right with accents of coral linen napkins.
Chandeliers cascading from the cathedral hight ceilings and white organza draping twinkled with accent lighting along the exposed beams. Bridal party introductions preluded the grand entrance of the new Mr. and Mrs. Kinsman. After the first dance and some very well spoken speeches, dinner was served. The couple decided on a homestyle menu that included smoked chicken, pulled pork, potatoes, and macaroni and cheese. As sunset approached, string lighting and music set the outside dance floor for a fun celebration.
The bartender was busy shaking up margaritas while the disc jockey kept the party rocking. The father of the bride made a bench by hand as the sign in prop. Instead of a book or portrait for guests to sign, they will forever have a heirloom piece to remind them of all the love of their wedding day. The Kinsman wedding was the perfect mix of elegance and rustic charm at Saxon Manor’s Shabby Chic Barn.
