Katie & Jimmy – October 14, 2017 – McHale Barn Wedding – Ravenna, OH

When your heart is shared so completely with another person that your home is wherever the two of you are together you have the ultimate in freedom.  Katie & Jimmy are travelers, wanderers, explorers and part of me wants to be a mouse tucked into their wheeled home to go along with them.  I know they will make amazing friends, have wonderful adventures and always end their days talking about what the future holds.  But, I am a homebody who cannot rest unless it is in her own bed so I will be grateful to continue our friendship online and share in their adventures that way.

When I first spoke with Katie about her wedding, she was clear that the ceremony was important, but the people that were coming to share in the celebration were just as much so.  Everything was planned in such a guest friendly way, from blankets and hot cocoa in case the evening got chilly, to the magical comfort food of a Swenson’s Food Truck to Katie personally cooking up veggie burgers to ensure vegan guests did not go hungry, it was just a party where a couple happened to get married as well.  The setting was the country backyard we all wish we had that they found on AirBNB that really isn’t a wedding venue, but might sometimes be and really and truly should be because Lisa & Rich were amazing hosts!  McHale Barns & Grounds was the perfect setting for every part of Katie & Jimmy’s day!
