An Oregon Barn Yard Wedding

You will be immediately captivated by the charm of Joesph, Oregon. Often referred to as the “Little Switzerland of America”, Joseph is a one-of-a-kind place. Sprinkled with  specialty shops and quaint restaurants. If you are lucky a antler will come up to your window while you are taking in the beauty of the lake. Such a fun place to visit and apparently an even better place to hold a good old fashion barn yard wedding.

Kelsie and Kyle’s wanted an outdoorsy area with a rustic building that would naturally add to the décor of their wedding. Lucky for them a local framer graciously allowed them to use their property for free. Of course they had to clean it up and make it wedding ready. With tons of help from family and friends they pulled it off spectacularly. Be sure to see more details in the full gallery, all photographed by Bryan Aulick

From The Bride:

Aside from the decor, the barn itself needed a TON of work to get it in shape for the wedding. We had chosen an area in a grassy meadow and mowed it down with hours of help from the groomsmen. Our family organized a “clean-up day” with the barn owner and spent the day sweeping, vacuuming, sweeping and more vacuuming to rid of the hay and dust. For weeks before and on the day of the wedding, family, friends, friends of friends, and the wedding party devoted their time to decorating the barn and setting up the ceremony indoors after unexpected rain. The meadow was a beautiful place that we wish we could’ve used, but the barn atmosphere was so cozy, it only added to the wonderful time we all had together.

The most special moment of my wedding day was the first time that I saw my soon-to-be husband before the wedding. It was an opportunity for us to get out all of pre-wedding jitters and spend intimate time together before we were engulfed by family and friends. Our photographer Bryan Aulick
, who agreed to meet us before the wedding to capture the entire day, was absolutely amazing. He made us feel relaxed and comfortable. My husband and I are never thrilled to be in front of the camera, but with Bryan’s creativity and the “challenges” that he put us up to, we were laughing a majority of the time and the pictures turned beautifully. During the intimate moment that I would see my soon-to-be husband for the first time, Bryan remained in the shadows where we didn’t even notice him, but captured all the emotion and joy that we felt. He truly added to the enjoyment of the day, and the wedding wouldn’t have been complete with him and his profound kindness, patience, and incredible talent.


When the time came to create wedding invitations, I was unaware of the vast amount of choices for fonts, paper, designs and styles. I knew I wanted a rustic theme with hydrangeas and a simple font that reflected mine and my husband’s laid-back personalities. The first custom proof sent from Mekala at Tie That Binds Weddings was exactly what I had in mind. She also created our monogram that was beautiful but still fun, so we incorporated it into our invitations, envelopes, and even a table runner that we had at the wedding. To keep everything congruent, she designed adorable signage throughout the reception, cookie bags with stickers, whoopie pie bags as favors, photo booth details, and table numbers. She also styled the tablescapes at the reception with sewing-pattern paper flowers, papier-mâché details, and brought chalkboards, bunting, escort cards with miniature cowbells, and other antique details to complete the style we dreamed of. The products that she had to offer and the details that she brought to the wedding were unlike anything I could have dreamed of, and the guests went on and on about the meticulous attention to the little thing

    Love LOVE LOVE that this is on weddingchicks! So thankful for the hard work that Mekala at Tie That Binds Weddings, and Bryan Aulick put into this wedding! We got the cowbells at Hobby Lobby, you can buy packs of them for a few bucks, we had a friend who had a vinyl letter cutter, and she provided the lettering for the bells, much cheaper than ordering online!

    Hi There,

    I originally saw the wedding pictures on Pinterst and my heart melted. I have been pinning picture after picture and finally decided that I must find out where this. My fiance and I live in Eugene, OR and when I saw that this is in Joesph, Oregon, my heart fluttered and my tummy filled with butterflies! This barn is truly beautiful and I would love nothing more than to be married in such a stunning place. If there is any information on how we would go about speaking with owners about the possibility of this being the place where our future begins, please let me know. I truly appreciate your help!
