Tyler and Emily got married at the beautiful and historic Beckendorff Farms. The Barn is the only antique timber framed structure known to exist that uses a “double-canted queen post” roof system. With unique copper detailing, beautiful french “X” back wooden farm chairs and chandeliers that can only be described as stunning beyond reason.
The centerpiece of the Beckendorff Farms event venue is an early American barn with historical significance. The barn once proudly had an agricultural role where it provided hay/grain/general storage, and also served as a dairy barn.
The Barn was originally built in the Washington Township of Ohio, near what is now the city of Alliance. Historic records and antique timber framing experts indicate the Barn was likely built between 1856 and 1865.
The Barn is the only antique timber framed structure known to exist that uses a “double-canted queen post” roof system. The system allowed the barn to span a width of 60’ without the assistance of any metal supports, making it approximately 50 percent wider than other timber framed barns. The 60’ hand-hewn oaks tie beams used to span the width of the barn are incredibly rare. The Barn’s large size was one of the elements that distinguished these early American barns from other barns, such as European barns. Experts in early American barns indicate that barns of this size are virtually unheard of, making our Barn a true historic gem.
The original Barn was dismantled, tagged, and blueprinted by master timber framers (including an Amish crew) and was carefully shipped to Katy, Texas, where it has been lovingly re-built by another Amish crew on the Beckendorff family property.
I’ve had the pleasure of being the wedding photographer for all of the stunning Moore sisters. To say it as been a treat, is an understatement. This family is pretty great.
The floral and details of the wedding were the perfect compliment to the rustic elegant backdrop of the barn itself. The day itself went smooth and without a hitch. Tyler and Emily decided to see each other before the ceremony in order to have some quiet time with each other before the craziness of the day started. Once the first look was over, we jumped in to the wedding party photos. After the ceremony these two partied the night away, singing and dancing all night long. I wish these two as well as the whole family nothing but the best! To see the full wedding click HERE.
