A country styled wedding isn't what it used to be.
We aren't seeing the typical jute twine, baby's breath and all things rustic anymore! Oh no...this style has been updated, and renewed. Just watch as we show you how you can design a down home, country styled wedding and not a sprig of baby's breath in sight!! *wink wink
Having a rural farm in your family is a huge perk, but there are lots of venues on the outskirts of cities that can accommodate this type of wedding style.
Your home grown wedding style can be accentuated with lots of great farm fresh treats, a delicate colour palette and vintage rentals!
Your personal style is a must when planning your wedding. A country barn wedding is no different. As a bride, your hair + makeup style doesn't have to read country girl...but it can! Try an up do with loose curls for the ceremony, and let it all down for the rest of the day.
A groom's style for a barn wedding quite often includes denim...why not try blue in your suit - the colour is a nod to denim, the cut a personal style, and all the moms everywhere are happy! *wink wink
Tip: lose the suit jacket for some less formal portraits.
A beautiful, silk and lace gown is a lovely style for your country wedding. Add a fun denim jacket to your bridal look, with a custom calligraphy art design as another nod to denim in your style.
A family style wedding reception with farm fresh food, and summer fruit desserts is an amazing way to keep the family farm vibe strong in your design.
Try a picnic style delivery, a food truck on site, or momma's home style cooking!! Use vintage china and coloured glasswares; rented vintage pieces takes the worry away from breaking momma's precious dinnerwares. Take a moment to enjoy a bite to eat with your love...an intimate picnic for two is so sweet.
Take your dessert style from a sweet bistro to the farm with delightful treats like galettes, tarts and pannacotta. Have fun with your dessert display with an old window and custom calligraphy dessert menu and vintage cake plates.
Enjoy your surroundings. Take the time to explore the property and use it's natural beauty to capture special moments.
