historic old barn
From Blue Note Weddings: Out on a country hillside in San Luis Obispo County, California, a quiet energy surrounds the Dana Powers House and Barn. Everyone had come together to turn a historic ranch and barn into the perfect wedding celebration for Caitland and Kellen. Built in the 1800s, the Dana Powers House and Barn has been in the Dana family for over a century. Everything from the rustic decor, to the vintage pieces that so perfectly accent the historical venue, make it a timeless fairy tale property fit for a modern romance.
Bridesmen instead of Maids
Caitland and Kellen knew each other since the age of 10! The two sweethearts had crossed paths over the years at family gatherings and friend's birthday parties but never really connected romantically until years later when they both matured. When Kellen proposed to Caitland she had no doubts that he was the one. Because Caitland was the only girl in her immediate family, She had known that if she ever got married that she would definitely want all her brothers to be in her wedding. So instead of having a traditional bridal party, she had 3 of her brothers as her Men of Honor, and her closest male cousins as her bridesmen instead of bridesmaids. It was the perfect modern twist to have an entire bridal party of gentlemen dressed in black suits!
rustic chic with a boho twist
The feel of the wedding was rustic chic. The tables were dressed with a boho twist and a periwinkle pop of blue. Every detail was delicately planned. From the vintage glassware to the candelabras and ginger jars, there was a cohesiveness color pallet that reined through the event. The florals were designed with soft white roses, peonies, and anemones with pops of periwinkle flowers and blue bouquet berries, amidst tall standing greenery. The tables were dressed with white linens and vintage glassware. A whole constellation of chandeliers hung from the rafters of the barn, reflecting their light in Victorian mirrors covering the walls.
for the sweet tooth
The splendid dessert bar rested upon a dresser made of reclaimed orchard crates, displaying a classic white cake, dressed in florals. The cake surely commanded the attention of our sweet tooth but had strong competition from the cookies, cupcakes, and compote crumble that filled out the bar.
