Michael Suigussaar + Kate Datema

Each wedding we hold here has a special place in our hearts, but for us, it's always exciting when we get to hold weddings for friends and loved ones, and this weekend was one such occasion. This past weekend, Michael Suigussar and Kate Datema held their wedding reception and ceremony here at Black Barn and we couldn't have been more happy to help these friends execute (and celebrate) their big day! 

Kate and Michael originally planned to have their ceremony at our oak tree in the vineyard, but due to a few unexpected rain showers, the ceremony was moved inside the reception space and held in front of the middle glass door, which overlooks the pond. While it wasn't what was originally planned, it made for a beautiful, intimate ceremony, surrounded by family and friends. 

Their decor was simple, but beautiful, using mainly floral arrangements, runners and photos to decorate our space. Knowing this couple's love for the outdoors, we were so glad that the weather cleared up later on in the day for their guests to enjoy the outdoor spaces that we have to offer here as well.
