Tucked away in the cozy and charming village of Millbrook NY – Family owned Four Barns Farm was the perfect oasis for Leah & David’s uniquely artistic, rustic and oh so chic three day wedding.   Starting off with a fabulous rehearsal dinner on the property – all eyes were on the gorgeous couple as they celebrated with family and friends surrounded by candlelit barns under a canopy of evening stars.

To see more – watch our Docufilm:  Four Barns Farm

Thanks to: – Daughter of Design for their amazing coordination and vision –  Main Course for one spectacular feast (watch out for those grilled cheese sandwich appetizers – they are ridiculously addicting!)
