Saturday morning May 31, 2008 on a grassy meadow in front of an old oak tree in the middle of the rolling countryside, Barbara and Jordy were married with their family and friends in attendance. It was a beautiful day with overcast skies and a refreshing breeze making it perfect for photographs. I am sure their photographer, Tracey Franks, got many wonderful pictures of the beautiful affair. Tracey is so much fun to work with and has such an eye for getting great shots. It was good to see her again.
Barbara and Jordy planned an informal garden wedding with about 80 guests. You can see in the photographs that the big old tree, the rolling meadows and the pond make a lovely backdrop for a wedding. They cleverly put hanging baskets of purple flowers on shepherd's hooks for a simple but elegant frame for the ceremony. Yep, purple was the color scheme. Her bridesmaids wore varying shades of purple, I dressed to match, and they even had a wedding cake with purple trim icing! Have fun and I wish you all the best, Barbara and Jordy!
Snipes Farm Retreat was originally an old dairy farm years ago but Roger Snipes has turned it into a wonderful party place. It is located in Chapel Hill but one must go through part of Carrboro to get there off Hwy 54. It is quiet and serene but also casual and laid back. A great place for a wedding and I have done many there through the years! .
