Sabrina and Brian – Rustic Wedding at The Byron Colby Barn in Grayscale IL
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that every wedding should incorporate something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. WELL, Fun fact #1: that saying comes from an Old English rhyme and those items are intended to bring the good luck to your big day. Fun fact #2: Sabrina and Brian had the “something old” thing down pat at their fall wedding held at the gorgeous Byron Colby Barn in Grayscale. Vintage charm was the name of the game for this very photographable wedding, and I am so excited to share the images from that day with you!
Sabrina and Brian met at Illinois State University in their math class, junior year. This is how Brian proposed: “Brian got all of my favorite sports stars, celebrities, our students, and family and friends to create videos showing their love and support for us. He had the entire day planned, filled with all my favorite people, activities, food, and drinks.”
Though it’s hard to narrow down, I think my favorite vintage element from the entire wedding was the Brian and Sabrina’s energy and their friends dancing and laughing all the time. In addition to being a gorgeous display, you could absolutely tell that everyone was swept up in the emotions of it all, and that they had a great time celebrating together.
The ceremony took place outdoor in front of the barn and it was a spectacular moment.
Right after the outdoor ceremony we decided to take some wedding portraits by Lake Aldo Leopold
Sabrina and Brian says, “Our wedding was the perfect fit for us. We had about 90 people at the Byron Colby Barn (a simple, cozy, smaller venue); we loved that we were able to do our ceremony and happy hour in the beautiful courtyard, during fall time and then move everything inside for the rest of the night. We had a small wedding party, BBQ food, drinks, and everybody danced the entire night. The entire day was special; we loved seeing everybody else enjoying themselves and having a great time!” Isn’t that so awesome?
Here is what Sabrina and Brian had to say about any advice they would give to brides and grooms planning their day:
Thank you again for inviting me to be part of your day, Sabrina and Brian and congratulations on hosting a beautiful, love-filled wedding! A big thank you to Sean Trudeu from Wedstart Production for the good music and great sound!
