Magical Barn at Silverstone Wedding

Jun 2, 2022

As Kt’s mom helped her put the finishing touches on for her wedding day look for their magical Barn at Silverstone wedding, we all stepped back in complete awe. She was a stunning bride, and the dress was immaculate. (I’ll come back to the dress in a little bit). Nate was not going to believe his eyes when he saw her.

But first, there was one other man in Kt’s life that would get to see her first.

Kt hid back in the bridal suite as we brought her dad up to the porch for his first look with his daughter. He had so many emotions going on. Happiness. Nervousness. Anxiousness. Everything wrapped up into one. Even a couple of jokes to ease the build up of the moment.

You could tell that this was going to be a very big moment in the day!

As he faced away, the door slowly opened behind him, and Kt stepped out onto the porch. Tears already building up in her eyes. This moment was just as important to her. As she stood there wiping her eyes, so she could see clearly, her dress was laid beautifully behind her. Each layer of her train created with a different design on it. She was radiant!

The moment had finally arrived.

Kt took a few steps forward and called out her dad’s name to turn around. At first, he made an exaggerated, shocked face as he began to turn around. Almost trying to lighten the mood before the emotions set in.

But it wasn’t until he actually saw her that the true emotions set in.

As he was about 3/4th of the way turned, his lighter tone in his voice went quiet, and all that came out was a soft, “Wow!” He couldn’t believe his eyes. I think she was even more beautiful than he could have imagined, and it showed in his response! He was completely blown away by his gorgeous daughter! It was such a special moment to watch.

She literally took his breath away!

Not only did Kt do it to her father, but she also did it to Nate as she took her first steps down the aisle. His eyes opened up wide, and his mouth dropped open! He couldn’t get enough of looking at her the entire day. Any moment he could, he would take a step back and just take in all of her beauty! She was now his wife!!

She truly stole the show!

Her dress from Designer Loft Bridal was truly one-of-a-kind. I had never seen so much detail in one dress and done so beautifully! She was a sight to see! It definitely is a bonus that Kt is a bridal consultant and sees so many dresses through her line of work! She definitely had been making notes about what she wanted!

It paid off big time!

I have seen quite a few dresses in my career, too, but none took my breath away like hers did! Nate definitely was right when he wanted to take in every snapshot he could of her in that dress! It is definitely one you never want to forget! Take a peek for yourself in my favorites below from their magical Barn at Silverstone wedding! Is she not absolutely stunning?! Let me know in the comments! Congrats again to the new Mr. and Mrs. Witmer!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
