Tanglewood Wedding Photography: Big Red Barn

Today we are sharing with you the final chapter of Mandy and Ryan’s Tanglewood wedding day story…their reception at the big red barn!

You might remember from the getting ready blog, the sweet moments and gifts blog, and the ceremony blog that Mandy and Ryan tied the knot near the Manor House on the lawn. They said “I do!” under the big oak tree, and Ryan surprised Mandy with a horse-drawn carriage.

Always the gentleman, Ryan helped Mandy into the carriage under the canopy of trees and sunlight.

They rode away toward the reception, waving to their guests with huge smiles!

Their bridal party was ready and waiting when they arrived at the barn, and it was time for their entrance and first dance.

I loved the detail of the lace on Mandy’s dress, and the bustle was so pretty.

They continued their theme of flowers in mason jars through the reception, with arrangements dotting the tables.

Beverly’s of Midway outdid themselves (as always!) with gorgeous arrangements that were rich in color and depth.

They had fun with a DIY (do-it-yourself) project for the table in the entranceway – Mandy collected old frames and used wire to hang images of her and Ryan in the frames in this updated version of a collage.

It took the guests on a trip down memory lane as they looked at images of Mandy and Ryan from high school through college.

The twinkle lights decorating the posts gave a warm, welcoming glow to the reception in the big red barn.

After their dances and dinner, guests were invited to snack on cake and cookies, from this elegant display. Their caterer, California Fresh, has a really unique business that donates profits to charitable foundations. It’s a really neat way to give back through something you already need for your wedding day!
