Oh, rustic glam. Two words that I always love to hear together. For this country boy and this sparkle-loving gal, that was the ideal vibe for their beautiful barn bash. All the details they created from the chalkboard painted mason jars to the mercury glass centerpieces perfectly bring their theme to life and the results are exquisite. Lucky for this couple, the bride’s cousin happens to be an incredible photographer, Brooke Boling Photography, and she captured all the lovely details. See all the pretty in the full gallery!
From the Bride…Our wedding day was everything I could dream of, it was perfect. We had the most amazing family and friends who helped us make our dream day come true! Dan proposed to me in the end of February, and me being the crazy girl that I am decided we could plan a wedding by September! It definitely can be done and was all worth it but at times it was a bit stressful to say the least. To make things even more difficult, Dan and I live in Denver but wanted our wedding in our hometown, Spokane, WA. But mom to the rescue! My mom was able to tour venues for me, meet with Tana Rekofke, our caterer, gather vases, mason jars, and just about everything we had at the wedding was collected by her!
We decided to go with On River’s Edge, a barn north of Spokane because instantly when touring the site we all saw the vision, Rustic Elegance. Dan and I love the outdoors; he is a little country and I love everything sparkly, so it seemed like a match made in heaven. We had to bring just about everything in to make it unique and Dan even wired and hung the chandeliers himself. The wedding was very DIY, and we made the burlap table runners, Dan’s mom put the chalkboard contact paper on ALL of the mason jars, my aunts put together all of the centerpieces, other aunts made the mini-pies (because Dan loves pie), family friends made the signs, and everyone really came together to pull off this event. We could not have been more fortunate to have so many people that love us help with this special time.
My friend and bridesmaid, Andrea Leslie, happens to be a wedding planner and from the second she landed in Spokane, she was our go to girl! She helped set-up, ran the rehearsal, and made sure the day-of went smoothly, talk about a God-send! Another amazing detail was our amazing photographer, Brooke Boling from Nashville, who happens to be my cousin. She brought her second shooter, Kelli Trontel, and the two of them were able to capture all of our amazing moments that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. I felt so much love on our wedding day and it will be a day I will never forget, and although doing everything ourselves was a lot more work, I think it made it all the more special because literally everything there was done with love.
