The Red Barn, Lake Okareka, Rotorua Wedding
At the gorgeous Red Barn in Lake Okareka, Rotorua, Jason and Cheryl became Mr and Mrs. The barn was the perfect location for them. The treelined driveway, the paddocks surrounding the barn, the old sheep farming buildings (can you tell I’m a city gal 🙂 ). It was also very close to the DOC campground on the edge of Lake Okareka. We also could not have asked for any better weather.
Every element of their day had a gorgeous handmade DIY touch from Cheryl. From the gorgeous moss table runners, the egg-shaped tealight candle holders, to the butterfly on the top of her shoe and the mason jar chandelier at the ceremony.
Cheryl and her girls got ready down the road at another bach, while Jason, his boys and other family members got ready at the barn and also did the final touches. We arrived and Jason asked me to let Cheryl know that everything was falling apart. The girls were so relaxed and even had time to sit outside enjoying the sunshine before getting Cheryl into her gown and up the road.
Jason and Cheryl we loved being able to capture your day for you and preserve it for a lifetime. Thank you so much for having us along xx.
