Where did Jordan and Derek decide to say their 'I dos' at Red Oak Valley?
The Red Barn Dock was their pick, perfectly positioned beside the Red Barn and offering stunning lake views. It’s not just another barn wedding location; it radiates romance. Set against nature’s backdrop with mature trees and a panoramic view of the rolling hills, it's the very essence of Red Oak Valley. While the Red Barn’s rustic elegance initially caught their eye, Jordan and Derek felt drawn to the outdoors for their ceremony, and the dock provided just that. The panoramic countryside views? Simply the cherry on top.
How did the Borrow Boutique enhance their big day?
Jordan and Derek tapped into Red Oak Valley’s unique Borrow Boutique. This allowed them to personalize the Red Barn with choice decorations ranging from chic candlesticks to elegant linens. It wasn’t just about convenience and making the space genuinely theirs. Their use of the boutique's items, combined with their own personal touches, made for a setting that was both intimate and refined.
