The date was October 1st. We woke to a misty morning but all moisture receded until the evening. I did not venture to the lower gardens where the ceremony took place as I had to remain in the home to quiet a barking dog.. The following is a series of photographs from the wedding day.
Yes it is Monday, and yes the wedding is over. Because daily activities filled most moments and any free time was saturated with emotions sitting in a quiet place trying to reflect was quite Impossible for me. The count-down will continue so I hope you stop by to see the progress.
Yesterday Michaele asked about the history of the barn. When we moved into our home in 2004 I did research at out local county seat to find out the story of the property. What I learned was the barn’s construction began in the year of 1895 by the Snyder family. The family home was built shortly thereafter. The Bugnito family bought the property in 1920 for $2150.00. The family continued to lived on the property until the early 1970’s. In 1974 it was bought by a young couple. They and their daughter lived here until 1996. They utilized the barn and property. Goats and chickens roamed the property and their horse, Partly Cloudy lived in the lower stall of the barn.
Once they moved on the barn was never again utilized as anything more than a work or gathering space. That brings us to today. My husband and I are the fifth owners of the barn and home. Occasionally we’ve held parties in the main hall of the barn. Other areas were filled with wood and home to a small colony of Brown bats The lower rooms are our work space. So when Katie and Noelle approached us in the spring to ask about using the barn for their wedding, we felt it was an opportunity to refresh the spirit of the barn. After a weekend of rewiring and cleaning a new energy is emerging.
