Following the 1:30 ceremony at Our Lady of the Angels wedding guests made their way to this incredible venue to celebrate the marriage of the newlyweds. Cocktail hour was both indoors and out as the weather was conducive for both areas to be enjoyed on this day.
Guests had the option of playing a variety of games such as corn hole or ring toss, or simply enjoy the day relaxing under a shady tree enjoying their favorite beverages. Cello music was played while folks made their way around the venue looking at history and locating their table.
Laura and Tom arrived and immediately began mingling while sneaking in a few pictures to capture the moment. Once everyone had arrived friends and family began making their way into the barn for dining and dancing.
Starting off with our first formality was the introductions of the parents. The bridal party followed with Keith Urban's hit "Somebody Like You" playing in the background. The new Mr. and Mrs. Calko entered with smiles as big as imagined to the theme from Rocky.
Our newlyweds went immediately into their first dance to one of my personal favorites, "A Kiss To Build A Dream On" by the great Satchmo himself, Louis Armstrong. Surrounded by the closest friends and family of these two was a very touching moment. The barns pillars were uplit with purple uplighting adding a nice touch to the dancing area.
The cutting of the wedding cake followed with the song "Sugar" by Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong. The small but gorgeous cake had the perfect cake topper for a venue like this. A ceramic bridal shoe and cowboy boot.
Upon completion of cutting their cake two toasts were give. Jessica opened up with the first toast of the evening then Brian concluded with his own words. All raised their classes and toasted the happy couple on their new life together. A brief blessing was given the all helped themselves to the buffet.
Once the dining was concluding Laura enjoyed a few special minutes with her father in a traditional father daughter dance. Rascal Flatts "My Wish" was the choice for these two. Tom danced with his mom to "At the Jazz Band Ball" for the mother and son dance.
Following the applause from the wedding guests the dance floor was opened and folks took turns dancing and enjoying some activities outside while it was still light. A variety of hits were played satisfying everyone in attendance.
Laura did toss her bouquet to all the single ladies present then the dancing continued further into the evening. As the night's celebration came to a close there was a sparkler send-off for Laura and Tom. While guests lined up between the barn and their pick-up truck everyone lit their sparklers and cheered as our two newlyweds made passage to their chariot.
Off on their honeymoon and a new life together went these two very nice people. We were so happy to be included in the wedding celebration. We wish nothing but good health and the best of luck to this couple.
