March in North Carolina is tricky. The weather can be beautiful, in the high 70s (as it was in early March this year), or it can be like Tim and Renee’s big day, March 26th when a cold snap hit!

After their venue had been double-booked, Renee was so happy to find Oakhaven Farm, set along the rolling pastures in Reidsville. A working farm in Reidsville, NC that boast everything from a large jumping pillow to a serene and peaceful lake. There is even a hunting cabin for Tim and all his military friends home on leave to hang out at! It was the perfect setting for Tim and Renee’s laid back country affair!

Merrymaking Events was thrilled to help them plan the very first wedding ever at this beautiful piece of land.

As the wedding planner, the only thing I can’t control is the weather. But, the next best thing is a back up plan…. So when we started to see the weather change from high 70s to overcast and cold…. We went running to the Grande Rental Station in Eden to rent the biggest tent we could get. As the rehearsal was going down, a beautiful white tent was going up!

The silver lining was that although it was cold, not a drop of rain fell….. luckily! The pictures by Misty (Images by Misty Photography) turned out gorgeous. The guests enjoyed a beautiful tented ceremony followed by a lively farm reception! Stopping into the large manor house to warm up, the guest seemed to party down and celebrate with Tim and Renee!

Congrats to Tim and Renee! We hope you look back on your country wedding with warmth in your heart …
