Caroline & Ryan Barns of Glory Wedding

by Kristine Leuze, Tastemaker in Residence

Caroline is originally from North Carolina. She met Ryan while he was stationed in the south and they currently live in Stafford, Virginia. Ryan grew up in a unique area of Minnesota. It's near Whitewater State Park in the southeastern part of Minnesota. This particular area is known as a mosquito-free part of Minnesota; very unusual for our state, especially in the summer months. It was the perfect location for this Minnesota wedding!

Barns of Old Glory was an idyllic venue for this couple. The display of red barns played nicely with Ryan's military dress attire, giving this patriotic couple many photos and memories created with a back drop of red (barns), which showcased the white (wedding gown) and blue jacket (Ryan's uniform).  

Most of Caroline's family came from North Carolina and were the perfect southern hosts to the Barns of Glory staff and the wedding guests. Between the "Minnesota nice" and the "Southern hospitality", this wedding was truly a dream!

Here are few highlights from behind the scenes on this southern brides' biggest day!

This location provided a flawless background for wedding vows, dancing and a reception. Cheers to Caroline & Ryan!
