We traveled to Nebraska recently to celebrate the marriage of our dear friends, and enjoyed the ultimate barn wedding in one of the prettiest settings I could imagine. With antiques from the bride’s grandmother’s basement combined with the rustic treasures already adorning this charming old barn, this beautiful bride’s vision came together as a memorable, romantic evening. As you can see from the pic above with the dark clouds rolling in, this couple got the extra luck of rain on their wedding day, and our warmest wishes are with them as they start their new life together!
In place of rice or birdseed, guests tossed a mixture of dried rose petals and lavendar as the bride and groom left the ceremony.
The bride thought of everything, including a vintage chandelier that hung overhead as the two exchanged their vows.
Each day I am thankful for the nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, and the dreams that turned into reality, and that could not have been more true on this special day.
They say every brunette is incomplete without a blonde best friend. Well I’m lucky enough to have two! Together, they hosted a gorgeous bridal shower for me, themed around the Boho Farm + Home, a stunning and meticulously decorated urban farm in Scottsdale, where it was held.
We sipped champagne, dined on an incredible quiche made with fresh eggs from the farm, a refreshing fennel citrus salad, and peach cobbler that melted in our mouths… the perfect day in a perfect setting, surrounded by my dearest girlfriends.
Pink peonies and teal accents on the most charming farm table you’ve ever seen!
And thanks to Twice Loved Vintage and The Pretty Paperie, the decor was extra special and personalized!
For this Texas farm girl and my Nebraska farm boy, it was a no-brainer to take our engagement photos in the wide open spaces. We picked the orange groves on one of the pretty spring days of the year in late March, with the smell of orange blossoms all around, and had so much fun with our incredibly talented (and patient!) photographer Kristen Swanson.
Can you believe I get to marry this handsome guy?! Lucky girl.
A beautiful trip to Brett’s family’s farm in Nebraska just became even more special… we’re engaged!
The setting, the deep fall colors of the soybean and corn fields, (and the ring of course!) completely took my breath away. I’m feeling so happy, excited and incredibly blessed.
It’s safe to assume this post will be the first of a flood of wedding finds and ideas… let the planning begin!
