Mark and Sarah are one of those couples that can’t stop beaming at each other, and it made capturing their rustic wedding day that much more fun! The chilly November day started with all the energy and emotion of preparation, and when all the details were in place, Mark and Sarah had the sweetest first look. After their ceremony under the natural wood eaves of Green Acres Event Center’s big red barn, the party started with dances and tears and ended with dancing and the joy of a perfect day.

Green Acres Event Center is one of our favorite venues – a beautiful hall, great event staff, and they’re dog-friendly! If you’re interested in a rustic wedding, their big red barn is the perfect place for you. The barn’s interior hall is naturally decorated by gorgeous wood plank walls, flooring, and epic high ceilings. It also has the added bonus of being decked out in charming and rustic decor throughout which makes setting the mood a breeze! If you’d like to learn more about this awesome venue, check out our interview with Lauren of Green Acres 🙂


Mark’s entire face lit up with joy and excitement as soon as he laid eyes on Sarah during their First Look – it was so cute and such a perfect reaction!

First Looks bring out all sorts of great emotions and have tons of perks – not the least of which getting to see each other for the first time on your wedding day!
