There is something to be said for keeping it lovely and simple! Hilary and Doug did just that. Their country barn wedding at Shady Elms Farm is pure perfection. Be sure to read more about Hilary and Doug at the end of the post!


More from the bride, Hilary:

What was your inspiration behind your wedding day?
I always envisioned my wedding being held at a barn- Shady Elms was the most perfect venue. I wanted somewhere that guests weren’t trapped in one room, they could walk around and mingle with one another.

Advice to share with brides planning now?
Don’t stress- it will give you wrinkles! Try and have fun and take everything one step at a time. BE EASY GOING; it will all work out and be perfect!

How did you and your spouse meet?
We met at a housewarming party that my best friend was throwing.

Proposal Details! How did it happen? 🙂
December 23rd- I was meeting a group of our friends in Market Square. We all were suppose to meet at the skating rink in front of the Christmas tree. I wanted to get a picture in front of the tree and as we were getting our picture taken he got down on one knee and asked.

What was your favorite memory from your big day?
The whole day! Doug and I left for our honeymoon the next day and talked about our wedding for 7 days and are still talking about it. We loved that no matter what we were doing when we looked around people were smiling and having a wonderful time. I am so tickled that everyone had such a good time!
