A rustic vision.
To my delight upon entering the barn space at Sage & Solace Farm, I found every photographer's dream: a place for guests to take photos together with various props and details. See some of these gorgeous details below, along with the cutest little hen and her chicks!
The sweetest family.
This awesome family and I had just the best time utilizing the props available in the barn.

There was raving reviews from the guests and I couldn't help but agree wholeheartedly once I ate mine after!
These lovebirds were all smiles and laughter during their photos together and I couldn't help but smile myself while clicking away.
Emily Taylor Adams.
This beautiful songbird began her performance and her audience was transfixed from the first note. With a strong and delicate tones paired with her guitar, it was clear that she has the gift of music. She candidly shared about her journey, including a song close to her heart called, "Let It Pour", that left us all breathless.
Now was the time for guests to enjoy their surrounds at the beautiful Sage & Solace Farm and explore. From the incredible array of flowers, to the sweet chickens milling about, there was lots for guests to see while they enjoyed the serenity that is Sage & Solace Farm.
Love in the air.
This is the only way to describe the aura of the evening while photographing the lovely attendees. Each person was having a marvelous time with their loved ones and it showed!
Time to dance!
Dalton Vegh led the guests in line dancing and as you can see, the results were so fun and one of the highlights of the evening
A sunset to remember.
Emily Taylor Adams started the second half of her performance and sang as the sun slowly set. The amber sky lingered as her voice rang out across the farm.
2 Winners & 2 Birthdays.
Given there were so many great outfits worn to the Country Celebration, there was a lot of deliberation over who would win the two grand prizes for best country outfit but finally a decision was made! As it turned out, there was also two birthdays to celebrate that night and so Emily led us in a resounding rendition of Happy Birthday.
Barb of Sage & Solace Farm thanked everyone for coming and was met by a thunderous applause and many thanks for hosting this joyous Country Celebration.
One last dance.
The guests couldn't help but end off this great night with more line dancing.
Thank you so much to everyone that came and made this evening so amazing. All throughout the night I just kept thinking that I've missed coming together for events like this, curated with love and community. I can't wait for the next one!
