The Hayloft | 2 Chicks and a Venue

If rustic is what you are looking for the Hayloft is the place to host your wedding. Nothing states rustic than a working family farm including a two-story barn. Crystal and her staff include seating and linens for up to 100 guests but they allow up to 200 people inside the barn. Anything larger than 200 would need to add a tent in the nearby field.
From hay bales to old cars the photography options are endless here at the Hayloft. They have a custom made arbor to use as a back drop for your ceremony but we’re using it for a couple’s grand entrance to their reception this fall since their ceremony is held at a local family church. The lower level of the barn makes for a perfect cocktail hour and dance floor area. We recommend keeping your cake in the air conditioned loft. Don’t sip out on the up lighting because the beams and woodwork adds depth with the right lighting. Make sure to request their signature photo opt in the window over the barn’s front door.
There is a special room for brides to dress and relax prior to walking down the aisle. As a planner I could see several grand entrance ideas for couples to arrive in style: modernize with a fancy vintage car, tractor, hayride, golf cart for fun, old “beat-up” truck, old fashion fire truck, or a classic horse and carriage. Adding wild flowers, mason jars and burlap are just a start to create a down home inviting experience for you and your guests. This venue has so many ways to create memories for you and your family to relive over and over.

Here are some images from Katrina and Ethan's wedding day to show you the Hayloft in all it's charm!

Justin and Alexis | Castle McCulloch Wedding

You think about December and you think of the hustle and bustle of the holidays. For Justin and Alexis it was the best time of the year, as they were getting married! They had a first look at Proximity Hotel in Greensboro before heading to Castle McCulloch to have their wedding in the Great Hall and the reception in the Crystal Gardens. Alexis took care of all the details from the handmade ornaments for their guest to have, down to the beautiful muffs that the girls would use instead of holding flowers, everything was simple stunning. So how do you top a wedding as grand as theirs? Quite simple, they went on a trip of lifetime that started off in Maldives. Here are just a few of our favorites from their day...

Chad and Joy | Finch Chapel Gereensboro

It started right here at Greensboro College, eight years ago, the first time Chad and Joy meet. So it seemed fitting that on a cool fall Sunday afternoon at the Finch Chapel in Greensboro College they would get married in an intimate wedding. With just (30) family and friends gathered around them as they said "I Do". Joy looked gorgeous in her strapless fit and flare dress and Chad was handsome in his Tux and just to make things a bit fun, he wore his black shoes and stripped socks! They were so much fun to photograph and as you can tell from the pictures, there wasn't a dull moment with Chad around, he always made Joy (and us) smile. Thanks Chad and Joy, we had an amazing time with you both! Hope you all enjoy the images and leave us some blog love by leaving a comment or two...
