When our youngest daughter told us that she was going to get married she also asked if it would be ok if she got married on the farm – not just anywhere on the farm but under the big oak tree – how could we say no?

The big oak tree sits in the center of our property, and over the years has become significantly special to our family. The kids loved to play there when they were young, Jamie and I had many alone walks there, Jamie’s mom used to like to sit there to read, Jamie’s mom wanted her’s and Jamie’s dad’s ashes spread there after they were gone, which they are. This has also been the spot for many family get-togethers

However because of the time of the year she wanted to get married, September 23rd, we knew that we would need shelter for just in case. Not only that but this was the perfect excuse to finally build the pavilion we have been talking about for years

So we got busy clearing the area, leveling the ground, cutting the trees for the logs, peeling the logs and then on June 30 the start of the pavilion.

Right now the pavilion has a tarp roof, however come spring we plan to put a proper roof on it – we just did not have time before the wedding due to all the other projects that had to happen before the wedding.
