    Beautiful home and photos. Do you mind letting me know if this was a private home or a property rental? If it was a rental, may I have more information on it? I am planning my wedding for 2014 and would love to know. Thank you! Helen

      Hi Helen, Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Thank you for the kind words. Unfortunately, this wedding was at the private home of a family friend, not a rental. Let me know if you have any other questions and best of luck to you as you plan your big day! Take care, Jo Ann
