Angie and Christopher Bouchard, two history fanatics, tied the knot at The Grand Ol Barn in New Smyrna Beach. This rustic and chic venue was the perfect setting for their wedding day.
Before the ceremony, Angie shared a first look moments with her father and Christopher. I always recommend first looks if you want to be a little non-traditional. It is such a special moment and it’s a great was to save time after your ceremony for couples portraits. Another special moment was also the highlight of the evening, the couples choreographed first dance which they executed flawlessly.
During cake cutting, I could tell that Christopher was planning a cake smush just by the look on his face. And sure enough, he did! Angie got him back just as good and it was a sweet, fun, and memorable moment from their day.
The venue offered ample space for all of their guests to celebrate and dance the night away. The evening was nothing short of eventful, with almost everyone up on the dance floor all night! At one point, I witnessed the greatest congo line of all time! Those who were not dancing were at the photobooth, snapping the night away.
The wedding ended with a beautiful sparkler exit, as Angie and Christopher waved goodbye to their guests as Mr. and Mrs. Bouchard. Congratulations to the happy couple! I wish them all the best in their new life together as husband and wife.
