After spending a few hours in Washington Park with the wedding party and family, we all make our way to Pat’s Barn. This is such a great location for a wedding, or any event for that matter! It is a short drive from Albany to Troy, off a major roadway and interstate yet it is extremely quiet and secluded. Kyle and Erica took this place and transformed it completely into their vision of the day. Mason jars were a major part of the overall theme, adding to the comfortable relaxed atmosphere these two exhibit in their personalities. Courtney Kern of Events Beyond meticulously coordinated every last detail with laser precision, and the results were amazing! From the custom made signs she and her father crafted and placed throughout the barn, to the flowing purple accents in every corner nothing was left by the wayside.
This is a building with real character. Granted, the current structure looks nothing like it did in the 1700′s, the feeling inside is simply amazing. It is a perfect blend of extremely rustic and modern convenience. There’s an elevator to reach the 2nd floor for crying out loud! This was such an added bonus as Kyle’s grandfather was in a wheelchair and would not have been able to participate in the upstairs festivities.
Kris Ann of Fleurtacious Designs matched the decor flawlessly keeping the arrangements and bouquets tastefully memorable.
The family style tables just added to the intimate nature of the entire day. The burlap runners were made by Erica and her new Mother-in-Law (a very nice bonding experience no doubt!) which tied together the vintage wood structure to the white tables.
In addition to the signs, this awesome cupcake tower was custom built by Events beyond. It showcased the most amazing cupcakes we have ever eaten from Gourmet Confections!
Once again, the details were spot on! Check out the Sweets & Treats table!
We love you Kyle and Erica, and are so happy that you two chose us to be there with you on your wedding day. I know you will both learn something new every day, and if you do…tape it and show the world. We want to know what you know!
Learn along with Kyle here & appreciate the killer cake toppers even more.
