Ok folks, get cozy and settle in for a bit - this wedding is the perfect pick me up for any afternoon lull. I've been day dreaming about this barn beauty by diana marie photography since the moment I laid eyes on it, and now it's your turn to do the same. It's like counting sheep, but counting the lovely details instead ...amazing short dress, gorgeous barn venue complete with chandelier, bow ties, sassy shoes, DIY touches, adorable flower girls...see what I mean, you slowly drift off into dream land after gazing at the loveliness. Go ahead and embrace it by floating on over to the full gallery of images.
We went with sort of a rustic, shabby chic theme. Scott is from Spokane, WA which is way more country and laid back than Seattle, where I'm from. We both wanted a casual country-side feel. So we drank out of mason jars and ate BBQ off vintage China Scott and I collected over the summer. Our close friend Kyle was our officiant. Scott's younger brother Ben did a beautiful guitar solo while I walked down the aisle. It was perfect!
We chose Wine & Roses Country Estate because it was away from the city and so charming! We used their beautiful lawn for our ceremony and the three-story barn for our reception. Inside the barn is a glittering chandelier! The "Wild West" style bar with tall iron stools was so perfect! There was plenty of room downstairs for dancing and mingling. We put all the seating upstairs. There were two lofts~ one on each side overlooking the dancefloor. It was such a neat barn!
Overall a lot of things were handmade by either me or my family. I made the invitations, ring pillow, hair flowers for my bridesmaids and jr. bridesmaids, all the hair clip favors scattered on each table and the "Just Married" banner. It was very "me" since I think of myself as pretty crafty. I love to see brides put their own personality into their day and I think that's what I did!
