Sometimes in order to create something beautiful you need to have a vision before you create. Lexi’s dad mentioned in his father of the bride speech that when they walked into the barn for the first time to visit it was a cold winter day and he had a hard time envisioning how it would look and feel for the wedding but was he was blown away by the outcome on the wedding day! Lexi and her mother along with their vendors & St. Joe Farm had that vision and left no stone unturned with creating the picture perfect wedding day!
Lexi chose a lovely earth tone color palette of navy, cinnamon, orange and gold accented with their floral that suited the venue and season. The bridesmaids dresses were cinnamon orange which was a hard color to describe but looked amazing! Although they hosted their wedding ceremony off site at St. Puis X Catholic Church they did their wedding prep at St. Joe Farm in an adjacent structure designated for a bride/groom suite. After the ceremony we returned directly to the farm for their wedding pictures and reception celebration.
St. Joe farm is really special as it’s a barn space but a massive space, with lot’s of room overhead not interrupted by a loft. It’s also an original wood structure dating back 100 plus years. And in addition there’s plenty of unique spaces around the farm for your photography sessions. One location that really jumps out is a hay mow that can open up for a photo in another small barn on the property. You can see this in the very last scene of Lexi and Brock’s film. Having great photo settings is huge when you’re looking at a rural venue where you will be all day and won’t have time to travel to another photo site because you’re out in the country and there isn’t other options. So if you’re looking for a barn wedding venue to host a good sized crowd it’s definitely one to look at.
