Sarah + Alex: A Barnyard Chic Party

A romantic summery ceremony and a lively reception with a fun-filled party atmosphere — complete with silly string, might I add — makes this wedding at the farm completely unforgettable.

Sarah O’Mara and Alex Krause were married on September 3, 2011 in East Aurora, New York, United States.

From the photographer:

The ceremony was at a beautiful garden setting called O’Brien’s Sleepy Hollow, then we were off to the historical Knox Farm for photos and another historical location for the reception, Roycroft Inn.

Sarah and Alex are so into each other, and the moment that got me was watching Alex’s face while he waited for Sarah to make the walk down the aisle. There was a small jewelry malfunction so as he waited, looking back and forth for her to make an appearance, he mumbled to himself “this is crazy”, referring to the wait. It’s the emotional stuff that gets me during weddings.

They had a beautiful party with warm wood-tone backgrounds, arts & crafts designs and Dark n’ Stormy, their favorite drink, as the main drink of choice during cocktails. Not going to lie, I snuck a taste at the end of the night my new favorite drink!

Big congratulations to the happy couple on such a romantic barnyard wedding, and thank you to Onion Studio for sending us these photos!
