This couple , who happens to own a gorgeous horse farm, decided to host pure wedding perfection in their backyard. With the help of Spread Love Events and Sweet Woodruff, they married the elegance and romance of lavender + lace and crafted them into a day both rustic and timeless. Have a look here for a sea of edison bulbs, garden roses and cowboy boots captured by Rebecca Amber Photography.
From the Event Designer, Spread Love Events…With a love of horses, lavender and lace inspiration and an authentic country setting, Katie and Randy’s wedding was a fairytale day that involved vintage fire trucks and cowboy boots. With the wedding taking place in their beautiful backyard farm, Katie and Randy had a hand in every detail and we had so much fun dreaming up ideas with them. We arrived at the property a few days prior to the wedding to find the bride, Katie, painting over 20 church pews white! In the days leading up to their wedding we painted, nailed, tied, created and styled so many pretty elements. It was a dream to see come together and enjoyed!
From The Bride… From the very first time we went to look at this property, which later became our home, I knew it was where I wanted to marry Randy. The serene setting, and the instant feeling of “this is our home”, made the decision easy for us. Leading up to our wedding day we had our hands busy, from making the wagon wheel chandelier, to painting church pews, and constructing a 300-foot boardwalk for our entrance. Come the day of our wedding I was ready to relax! We had put in such much time and effort; we were ready to enjoy the best day of our lives. The team at Spread Love Events had all the gorgeous details covered with their brilliant styling ideas in full swing, and Melissa from One Fine Day Events was there making sure everything went smoothly. Me being an Equestrian rider, I knew I wanted a rustic feel to reflect my passion in life. Randy, being a carpenter (and the most amazing fiancé) had his hands full every time I came to him with idea of yet another project to make.
My favorite part of the day had to be in the morning when Randy and I saw each other for the first time. We were with my horses taking beautiful photos, and that allowed us to relax and have a few laughs. My advice to future brides is this; not feel afraid to ask for help! I found myself caught up in so many projects at once, since the wedding was at our house, and it sometimes became overwhelming. My sisters and bridal party were amazing leading up to the day helping with all the small details. Weddings are about the love two people share between them, but it also made us realize just how much our family and friends mean to us.
