A Rustic Country Wedding at Flagstone Farm in Vance, Alabama

Whitney Morrison (29, a designer) and Chuck Holderfield (27, a DJ and entertainer) met in college.“We both attended the University of Montevallo,” Whitney says. “We were friends first and then started dating in 2006. We had a classic on-again off-again relationship for years. And finally, one day in 2013 we made it a permanent on-again! We got back together in October of 2013 and by April we were engaged. Actually, by December, we were planning our wedding. We knew we were getting married.”But what they didn’t know was where their venue would be – until Whitney had a fateful run-in at her office.“We got married at Flagstone Farm in Vance, Alabama,” the bride says. “It is gorgeous. I actually found out about it when the owner came into my work at the time to find something for it. She started showing me pictures and my friend and I started joking about me getting married there. Well, it was no joke -- I love it there! It’s a beautiful gray barn with white trim and wood paneling everywhere. You don't need to decorate everything because it’s so perfect for country weddings. It overlooks a lake and rolling hills and trees. And if that’s not enough, the owners are the nicest people to work with. They really enjoyed it and wanted us to have a great day. It wasn't just a job to them. I felt like they were guests at our wedding who happened to know where everything was! The style was very classic with lace, pearls and candles everywhere -- but with a casual, comfortable feel. There were chalk boards, ribbons, mason jars, candles, lace and wooden crates. It was charming and classic and elegant -- just what I wanted.”
