DIY Idaho Barn Yard Wedding

We love to feature a good old fashion barn yard wedding especially if it’s in Idaho. Eryn and Brian had an intimate ceremony followed by a luncheon at their favorite french restaurant. Later in the evening, they hosted a big barn reception complete with a bluegrass band, pie, pizza and even chickens! Love it! All photographed beautifully by Greg Hoskins Photography.

Eryn and Brian did most of all the decor themselves. Projects included wine bottles covered in tree wrap, honeysuckle vines made into bird nest centerpieces filled with items they picked up on walks. They drilled holes to fit tea lights and homemade pom – poms out of coffee filters. They even spray painted votive holders to look like mercury glass. Many of their friends helped pull off the day by providing Eryn and Brian with music, flowers, cake, elbow grease, and support.
