When a dream becomes a reality the results are absolutely magical. This beautiful barn wedding was one giant DIY project for the bride, Krystal. As the location was not a traditional wedding venue it was up to her to pull things together, and we think she did it all with style and grace.

From the Bride
I knew I wanted a barn wedding but here in Southern California the options are not too great. While I was at the fair I looked at the big red barn, and said why can’t we get married here? Bryan looked at me as though I was crazy, but I had a vision and I knew it could be great.
I made the sign in quilt, I printed pictures from our engagement session and put them on fabric, then just sewed a quilt together. About 5 years ago I had made Bryan a quilt for an anniversary present so it was fun to have one from our wedding.
Book Seating Chart
One of my favorite parts was my seating arrangement, I love old books so I came up with the idea for for every person to have their own book to find their seat. Inside the books were old library cards, with the table name and the number. Also included inside each book was a hand written letter to each guest and what they meant to us. It took us over 20 hours to write them all, but every person absolutely loved it.
On The Decor
I wanted it to be rustic but still completely have the feel of a romantic wedding, I had to bring everything in and make it all. Most of the drapes on the walls were covering all the farm equipment
Bryan loves pie so we had mini pies complete with an ice cream station. It was super fun!
