Saddle Wood Farm: A NYE Wedding
Chicago-based couple, Soraya and David, reached out to our team right after their engagement. We hosted two full weekends of venue scouting trips with their families and finally landed on the perfect barn at Saddle Wood Farm! We hit the ground running to make their destination wedding come to life by the following fall.
In the early planning stages, Soraya realized what a stress finishing law school was in the middle of wedding planning. To fully enjoy her experience, we decided to change our date to New Year’s Eve! With a VIP guest list, we hosted 100 of Soraya and David’s friends and family from across the world.
Saddle Wood Farm is an exceptionally large space with a capacity much greater than our headcount. So, we filled the space with lounge furniture, cocktail tables, a french fry station and two bars! And, we created comfort and warmth in low lighting. We had to be strategic about furniture placement.
We kept guests entertained with a band, seated dinner and a balloon drop at midnight! We utilized our Lucy farm tables with the venue’s chiavari chairs and a stunning hunter green tufted loveseat for Soraya and David.
