The ride out to Barnes Barn to photograph Kerstin and Kyle’s wedding day was peaceful and full of beautiful CNY vistas, which also happens to perfectly describe their wedding day from beginning to end, absolutely beautiful!
Barnes Barn sits atop a large hillside in North Brookfield, NY. The family owned establishment provided a lovely canvas for bride Kerstin, a career interior decorator, to go wild! She transformed the interior of the barn into a lovely burlap, lace, and wild greenery wonderland with grapevines draped from the chandeliers, a beautiful monogramed L made of moss, caged flowers and an amazing cake display.
We will never forget their ceremony location! The Barnes family provides their backyard, which is a short car ride even higher up a narrow path from the barn and has one of the most breathtaking views. The clouds treated us just right as Kerstin began to walk down the aisle to her sweet groom, Kyle, tearfully waiting. The natural light filtered by the menacing but picturesque clouds while they exchanged vows warmed our hearts. The entire scene was a true pleasure to witness!
Once family formals were done, everyone descended the hill back to the barn to take in the reception. There is no doubt Kerstin and Kyle’s guests were impressed by the way the couple (okay, mostly Kerstin – Kyle’s words!) transformed the reception space. Not only did they provide their guests with an elegant dinner scene, they did not forget to take advantage of the barns’ lawn space with multiple games of corn hole waiting! The crowd really got going when the DJ did a neat spin on the song “We Are Family,” challenging each group of family members to make the most noise (pretty sure the cousins won!). While the dancers got down to the most impressive participation of “Cotton-Eyed Joe” we may have ever seen, the wallflowers enjoyed the clean, country air and the lawn games. Once the cake was cut, we couldn’t resist taking Kerstin and Kyle out for a sunset shot to sum up the beautiful day.
Here are just some of the highlights from Kerstin and Kyle’s best day ever!
