In case you missed the shindig...

Betcha wish you woulda been here! 

A few of our guests are clients of mine, and some of them come every time we have an event at the barn.  This time, Sharon (right) brought her S-I-L Linnette (denim) to see what she ought to have me do to restyle her old garage into a party space. 

Lynne from We Cater To You kept our guests well fed. ( click here: wecatertoyou-mn.com)

Lisa hammed it up in the photo booth (shindigphotobooths.com) with her new husband Tom, then with Minnesota Officiant, Jim Albani (Minnesotaofficiants.com)  Who's Lisa?  She's barn owner, Cindy Faus Heimerl's cousin, and the bride of the day...

Lisa starting up the aisle.  When she's not busy getting married, she paints darling barn wood signs, including the table numbers on our tables, and a flower girl sign that I didn't get a good shot of, which read "Here comes the Bride"(that got a great reaction from the crowd).  You can "Like" Lisa Curry Designs on facebook to see them.
(Ha!  I just popped over to facebook and swiped this photo from Lisa.)
There we all are!  Check out the adorable flower girl's sign!

Back at ground level, the party carried on, even though the marriage was over as quickly as it happened.  In a gown from Saver's Thrift Store (!) and purple cowgirl boots (!!), the bride had everyone convinced, right up until the groom opted out of the kiss...silly boy, but I guess since he does have a sweetheart, it's understandable.   Though this one was mock, there are several weddings booked at the barn this summer, already, so if you're thinking of tying the knot at Rubies & Rust, click on over to the website right now (Rubiesandrust.com) 

Thanks to Sher Simon who snapped shots with my camera while I was busy playing bridesmaid.

If you missed this open house/barn, do plan to come next time.  We'll do it again in the autumn, no doubt, and it will only get more and more beautiful, as Cindy never stops collecting, arranging, fluffing and embellishing things.  Thankfully, it's not likely I'll have to paint any more walls, but there were those two chair seats that I upholstered and didn't quite get reattached...apologies to anyone who found my forgotten project!  Oops.

And y'all come back here Friday to see the other project I worked on much of last week.  It was for the Belle Plaine high school prom, and it turned out pretty wild!
