When a garden affair is on the agenda, my day is made. And today’s soiree just so happens to be a garden affair complete with barn, ring bearer in seersucker, and pretty amazing light, captured so brilliantly by Kristin La Voie Photography. And the love at the center? Blog worthy, to say the least.

Rustic Venue

From the photographer… This is a stunning rustic barn wedding at Byron Colby Barn, just outside Chicago. Nestled between fields and charming homes, this venue is one of my favorite hidden gems in the suburbs. The barn was completely transformed into a gorgeous affair fit for a queen with Forget Me Knot’s amazing florals on every table, the perfect Loveseat placed at the sweetheart table, and the adorable trees strung with lights and doves. Not to mention, the most adorable ring bearer on the planet, Michael (Joe & Diana’s son) was dressed in the cutest seersucker suit and bow tie. The bridesmaids all wore the most unique dresses I’ve ever seen (which the bride found on Etsy). It was a perfectly sweet garden affair!
