Saying "I DO"---A Rustic Barn Wedding


We hosted a beautiful country wedding at the historic district this weekend--set in front of our 1930s Magers Barn. What a perfect backdrop the barn proved to be. . . .

Farm Chic would be my description of the occasion. . . .

When you put wedding items together like wildflowers, cotton bolls and wheat, burlap, Mason jars, reclaimed wood signage and actual vintage farm equipment--all in a barn setting--you get an amazing wedding. When you add a gorgeous wedding dress made by the bride's grandmother, the beautiful denim blues of the attendants attire, fancy cowboy boots, and vibrant colors in the bouquets, you get great wedding style--a wonderful mix of rustic with feminine touches.

Barn weddings are very popular these days, especially for those couples who have ties with farming. And, many of them include do-it-yourself details that make a wedding so much more charming. . . .


Burlap and wildflowers decorated the barn setting. . . .


Vintage farm equipment became part of the charm. . . .


A primitive farm table was set with more burlap, wildflowers, green moss balls, and ceramic love birds for the simple--but lovely-- detailed guest book. . . .


 Corsages for the ladies were handmade of tiny white roses, accented with soybeans and feathers. Boutineers for the men were crafted of tiny cotton bolls, wheat, and feathers--emphasizing the couple's connection to this farming area. . . .


Blue Mason jars--from the collection of the bride's mother--were partially filled with white sand and battery operated tea lights.  These luminaries, coupled with rose petals,  lined the aisle. . .  .


No overalls were necessary. No kitchen aprons on the place. 
But, western boots did peak out from under the beautiful  gowns. . . .


Denim blue and barn red carried on the country theme. . . .




It was a joyous occasion, in spite of the heat. . . .


The day was a celebration of family, too. Mother and daughter--who was also the flower girl--had a few moments together before the ceremony. . . .A quilt made by the bride's great grandmother was displayed at the barn. . . . .The wedding decor was planned and crafted by the bride's mother. . . .The proud father gave the bride away. . . .The groom's best man was his father. . . .


And, the bride's grandfather married the couple. . . .

Done in rustic and personal style, it was a charming and beautiful wedding. . . .
a fine day indeed. . . .
I'm so glad we were able to be a part of it. . . .


To Jeremy and Anna Harris. . .
Special blessings and much love. . .
And, may you live. . .

Beautiful! My daughter's wedding was at a farm this past October. The reception dinner was in the barn and the dancing took place up in the loft. The ceremony was outside. It was a beautiful day. Love your wedding photos!

I have a soft spot in my heart for farm settings. All those summers on my grandparents farm, I guess. This was an absolutely beautiful (and creative) wedding. Loved having a glimpse into this special day. Thanks.

I am loving looking through your blog and I love the pictures of the barn wedding. My niece got married in a barn too on June 24th.
Everyone looks so relaxed and having a fun time as they should on such a joyous occasion.
I am really liking that tractor and the burlap.
