Beautiful Be Yourself Barn Wedding

cute barn wedding @weddingchicks

When Hannah and Cole starting planning their wedding, the only thing they felt strongly about was that they wanted the event to represent them as a couple. They also felt that while their wedding was about celebrating their love for each other, it was also about celebrating everyone who has loved them and supported them.
The overall vibe for their beautiful be yourself barn wedding was, of course, rustic! They both love being outdoors so it was only fitting that their wedding was outside. Gorge yourself with more of the beautiful details, all found in the full gallery here,  photographed by Stephanie Hunter Photography.

Flowers To Create The Look

From the florist: To create Hannah's beautiful bouquet, we incorporated a medley of unique flowers mixed in with a few seasonal blooms. These blooms included blush dahlias, peach ranunculus, coral spray roses, variegated scented geranium, gold broomcorn, popcorn pink hydrangea, and blush cymbidium orchids. We completed the look with a thick textured ribbon wrap, where we attached vintage lace that was used in her Mother's wedding bouquet! We also had fun creating a one-of-a-kind floral collar for Hannah's sweet pup!

A Special Space

From the bride: Before we even got engaged, we had visited a family friend's farm in Georgetown, Texas and I knew this was the place we would get married. There were acres and acres of beautiful landscaping. We decided to get married under big oak tree that had beautiful branches and limbs spread out. The barn used to be a lumber company back in the early 1900's. We used this space to showcase the wedding cakes. The inside of the barn was one of my favorite parts of the wedding. There were so many details inside to show our guests who we really are when we are together.

DIY Projects

It was important to me to be able to make some of the decorations ourselves because I knew this would make our wedding special to us. My DIY projects included table numbers, the programs, some of the flower arrangements, many painted vintage pieces, and lanterns hanging from the trees.

Keep Up With Your Budget

My total cost for my wedding was $20,000. I knew exactly what I wanted so I was my own wedding planner. Keeping up with your budget sheet is probably the most important thing. I knew about how much I wanted to spend on certain things so I knew I was going to have enough money for the things I really wanted in my wedding. We had a lot of family friends help us make the DIY thing which added a special touch to our wedding and that helped save on costs for the wedding.
