May was busy with Spring weddings and wonderful couples…..including one of Barb Wired’s very own team alum! We were so honored to be part of Sarah and Brent’s special day and love seeing members of our family so blissfully in love. Congratulations Sarah and Brent!
From the Bride: Brent and I were so excited to celebrate and get married with all of our friends and family by our side. We knew it really wasn’t about us, we already knew we loved each other and wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. It was about having (almost) everyone we love in the same place at the same time – we wish we could do it every year!! Working previously as an assistant with Barb Wired, I couldn’t imagine getting married in Virginia without Barb, Iris, and their team helping to coordinate the day.
Wolftrap Farm was the perfect location- a vacation rental for weddings and events which allowed the whole wedding party to stay on the property for the weekend. The venue turned out gorgeously! We loved how it opened out onto the patio so our guests could play yard games and see the lovely views. We had rockstars Jordan Baker Photography and Magic Hour Creative, equipped with a quadcopter Go Pro, to capture the special day so that our friends and family could be present in the moment with us, and not behind a screen. I still remember walking down the stairs to Brent and seeing all the smiling faces of the people I love. That was so special to me.
Brent and I love food and we knew we wanted a relaxed style for the day so we put an amazing food truck team together made up of Blue Ridge Pizza and South Fork Food Truck. Pimento cheeseburgers, sweet potato fritters, and four different pizzas, including pork and asparagus, were a hit! Everyone still raves about the food and it was so fun for our guests to get to see the pizza makers tossing the pizza in the air! We also loved that we got the JMU Road Dawg to be at our event- Brent and I met at JMU and so many of our guests went to JMU with us. Staying on the property was so great and gave us more time to get to see everyone and catch up – we live pretty far from everyone since we moved to North Carolina. I will say, though, that even though we were there three days, it still all flew by and we wish we could do it again – not that we would change a thing!
