It could be my Southern roots coming out here, but this wedding sure has knocked me off my barn-lovin' feet. Nothing can put my heart aflutter more than the rustic barn at Chukkar Farm with amazing green, green farmland that goes on for days or the lovely images from Photographs by Anjuli that capture so perfectly the soft palette and atmosphere of this vintage-inspired wedding. With every moment of the day flawlessly expressing the personality of this creative couple, Laura Birney Events has really enchanted and delighted this Southern blogger.

From Laura Birney Events... Church pews in a field? Chandeliers hanging in a rustic pavilion? Sign me up! This wedding had all the elements of a perfect event and, oh, the fabulous details! Christina and Dan envisioned a vintage, rustic affair, and Chukkar Farm was a beyond perfect backdrop. For the ceremony, guests sat in church pews set in an open field. The altar was decorated with a vintage, four-pane window set adorned with hanging vases of beautiful blooms. A dear friend of the couple, Dwight Haymon, delivered a beautiful and touching ceremony.

Guests then made their way up to the farm's pavilion area for the reception, and there was no detail left undone! Christina is an artist and a graphic designer, and she custom-made the invitations and all the beautiful paper products. She tied everything together perfectly, from the seating chart placed on vintage window panes to the table numbers to the hand-painted welcome signs. The pavilion was decorated to perfection with chandeliers, burlap and beautiful drapery. We used a variation of round and long tables and dressed them with clean, white linens. Christina provided a variety vintage bottles, vases and bowls that were set atop burlap squares. They were filled with beautiful blooms of ranunculus, anemones, godetia and astible in shades of pink, peach, coral and ivory.

Christina and Dan served amazing Korean and Thai food, which was delicious! The meal was complete with yummy vanilla and chocolate cupcakes for dessert. The guests partied on the dance floor and took pictures in the DIY photo booth until the couple's grand exit through a sea of sparklers. The evening was filled with joy, laughter and lots and lots of love for this beautiful couple.
