Happy Friday brides! This month we chatted with Kim Vlasman over at Willow Creek Barn Events in Ailsa Craig (about 20 minutes outside of Strathroy). Her venue is breath taking - from the gorgeous rustic barn to the land itself you'll find so many beautiful places for couples photos and options for your ceremony spot! We hope this Q+A will help some of you brides who are still deciding on a wedding venue!
