For their wedding, Dayna and Brad wanted the experience to be fun and lighthearted, with personal meaning behind most every aspect. Thanks to the hard work of their family, artist friends, and wedding vendors everything came together beautifully. The venue held exceptional importance to them, as it was a century old barn that Dayna's grandfather and brothers built as their first family dairy farm, milking 12 head of cows. Her father and his six siblings were born at the farm house, and her father farmed with his dad there and at the newer “big farm” his whole life. Overlooking Lake Willoughby and the mountains surrounding it makes the “Little Farm” such a perfect setting for a romantic natural wedding.
Since it had been used for storage for roughly 60 years, it was quite the undertaking to ready the barn for the wedding. The floor and loft needed to be gutted and rebuilt and it took most of the summer, and many helping hands, to complete. Now, with a new floor, polished posts and beams, fixed roof, and new windows, this gorgeous space with an amazing view made a wonderful backdrop for their wedding. They also fixed up the old milk house and renovated it into the “Milk House Bar” where drinks were served.
There are hundreds of different kinds of signs you can have for your wedding - signs pointing guests to the ceremony and reception, signs for food, signs for fun, and signs that instruct your guests to sign a guest book or take a favor. And there are thousands of different design ideas for signs that you can buy or DIY yourself. Signs can be a great way to bring your theme and color palette together and add that little something extra to your wedding decor.
Just for fun, and because we wanted to give our readers something to show our appreciation, we put together some FREE downloadable sign designs that you can print and frame yourself! We designed two different sets, one features an elegant botanical wreath illustration and calligraphy, the other is a rustic, chalkboard design with a big, bold font. There is a Seating Sign and a Happily Ever After sign - both of which come in two different sizes, 11x17 and 8x10. A fun Mr. and Mrs. set is sized to 8.5x11 and is perfect for hanging on the back of your chairs. And last but not least, a Guestbook Sign that can work for whatever type of guest book you are using, which is also sized at 8x10, perfect for framing in your choice of frame.
