Whitley + Victor's Star Wars Themed Wedding

You are the droid I’m looking for...

Every once in a while, a couple comes along that asks us to do something totally different for their wedding. And we love it. We are obviously head over heels for a gorgeous, “normal” wedding, but we LOVE when we get asked to do something a little crazy! Whitley and Victor chose a Star Wars theme for their elopement, and they specifically chose R2-D2 and BB-8 as their inspiration. And it turned out AMAZING. There were lightsabers (duh), an R2-D2 suit (obviously), and a whole bunch of pretty blue and orange details! Our team managed to create a wedding that was fun and quirky, but also still totally gorgeous. We’ll always remember this one! Whitney from WDPhotography took their photos, and we love them!

In a galaxy far, far away... Whitley and Victor were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on October 18, 2018. Their colors were orange and blue, and their theme was Star Wars! “I was the BB-8 to his R2-D2,” Whitley said. LOVE! 

Whitley said her favorite thing about her entire wedding day was the theme! We agree... it was such a fun theme, and every detail was very well thought out and fit in flawlessly. “It was better than I could have ever imagined,” she said. “It was absolutely perfect.”

Whitley and Victor were our coolest couple of all time. Their outfits were SO good and fit their theme perfectly. Whitley wore a tea-length, strapless bridal gown with an orange petticoat underneath (inspired by BB-8, of course!). We very rarely see short wedding dresses, but they are so fun and perfect for a fun, lighthearted wedding! Victor wore the most epic R2-D2 suit. These two rocked their theme through every detail of their wedding, including their attire! Did we mention that Whitley even had orange streaks through her hair?! These two went all out. So dang awesome.

Whitley had some of the brightest, most fun florals we’ve ever done, and we are crazy about these! “My favorite is sunflowers so there were those, as well as orange and blue flowers,” Whitley said. “Just a big colorful mix that was gorgeous.” There were pops of silver and loads of greenery, too… so, so pretty!

Whitley said she and Victor “gave full reign to the team for the location of the ceremony on the property, the altar, and the cake.” Our team set up their ceremony off to the side of The Barn’s front doors (they were the first couple to tie the knot in this exact spot!). We used our hexagon altar with a silver glitter drape, orange and blue florals, and a whole bunch of lightsabers! Their aisle was lined with small orange and blue floral arrangements in mason jars.

Whitley and Victor asked some of their closest friends and family to participate in their ceremony, which made it extra special. Their friend Alahna Martin performed a song, and another friend, Ryan Swatzel, was ordained so he could be their officiant. They also had a fun, unique unity paint ceremony. As they walked back down the aisle as newlyweds, a few of their guests held up lightsabers, which made for the coolest grand exit ever!

The Barn did an amazing job. It was absolutely better than I could ever have imagined. It was out of this world — pun intended.

Whitley and Victor had a small, intimate reception full of Star Wars inspired details! “We had many Star Wars figurines and knickknacks that we had scattered throughout,” she said. “We had a Star Wars photo booth prop set up.” They also sent their guests home with several Star Wars themed favors, including decals, stickers and temporary tattoos. They had a simple white cake with orange and blue details and a Star Wars topper, of course!

Whitley and Victor, your wedding was one to remember, and we’re so glad you chose us to plan it with you! We wish y’all the very best! xoxo

Katelyn + Richard's Glamorous Blush & Navy Elopement

It sure is feeling like winter in our neck of the woods all of a sudden, but this gorgeous August elopement has us feeling all the warmth! This wedding will always be memorable for us, because it was the day we debuted a brand new altar! There were many details to love, including the prettiest pink florals, a breathtaking bride, a gorgeous ceremony set up in front of The Barn, and so much more. One of our favorites, Tryston Hines, photographed this wedding… as always, we are swooning over her photos!

Katelyn and Richard were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on August 18, 2018. Their colors were blush and navy, and their details were glam meets rustic. “I am a very bling person, and The Barn made something unique just for me,” Katelyn said.

THP-35.jpg

Katelyn’s florals were feminine and gorgeous. They were full of blush and ivory roses, astilbe, greenery and a few pops of navy from blue thistle and the prettiest berries. “My bouquets were beautiful,” Katelyn said. “They were exactly how I wanted.” Katelyn carried a photo of her mother on a charm on her bouquet, which she said was one of her favorite details. Her mom recently passed away, and this was such a special way to honor her on Katelyn’s big day.

Katelyn was the most stunning bride. We were head over heels in love with her timeless dress, which was from David’s Bridal, but our absolute favorite part of her bridal look was her incredible veil! It was trimmed in the most beautiful lace, and it totally made her look. We also loved her sparkly accessories.

We are SWOONING over this ring shot! What a gorgeous, unique ring this lady is so lucky to wear!

Katelyn’s bridesmaids wore long navy dresses, also from David’s Bridal, and the guys wore classic black suits. There were some seriously cute kiddos in this bridal party as well. Katelyn also included her pup, Arabella, in her wedding party… isn’t this the cutest, fanciest dog ever?! She was wedding ready in her blush outfit and navy bow! We can’t even handle this!

Katelyn and Richard had a very sweet, intimate first look before their ceremony. These photos are just the sweetest. One of the best parts of our job is seeing how much our couples adore one another… it gets us in our feels every time!

I loved my wedding... They did an awesome job!! I highly recommend the Twin Oaks team!

Katelyn and Richard tied the knot on the lawn in front of The Barn. Our team built a custom hexagon altar just for Katelyn and Richard’s ceremony, which we then draped in a glittery gold fabric and finished with a few pink floral arrangements. Glamorous meets rustic has never been prettier! Their aisle included a few small floral arrangements in mason jars, and their guestbook table had pink florals and a touch of bling, too.

Katelyn and Richard exchanged their vows in an intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends in attendance. It was one of the most gorgeous days of the summer… the perfect day for such a sweet celebration of love!

They had a small reception with a cake cutting inside The Barn. Their tiny cake, from Kneading Hands Bakery, was the CUTEST. The gold, glittery “love” cake topper and pretty florals made this cake so special and sweet. It sat on top of a vintage barrel and some gold sequined fabric, which was the perfect combination of glam and rustic. We keep our elopement receptions super simple, so the rest of The Barn had a few cocktail tables with navy tablecloths and small floral arrangements. “I loved The Barn,” Katelyn said. “It was absolutely gorgeous!”

The most memorable moment of the day for Katelyn came during the reception. “I’ll always remember how my husband looked at me during the first dance,” she said. “It was unexplainable!”

Katelyn and Richard, we LOVED planning your elopement with you! We adored every gorgeous detail! Congratulations and best wishes! xoxo

Beth + Christian's Romantic Purple Wedding

I’m so excited to start sharing our fall 2018 weddings with y’all! This was the first one, and it was romantic, dreamy and perfect. It rained on Beth and Christian’s wedding day, so their ceremony had to be moved indoors, and honestly… that made it more magical and gorgeous than ever! They had a sweet, intimate ceremony underneath the twinkling chandeliers inside The Barn, and it was the most romantic thing we could have imagined. We adore these photos by Kayleigh Ross Photography, and we hope y’all love this wedding as much as we did!

Beth and Christian were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on September 23, 2018. Their color palette was the prettiest combination of purple, dusty greens, gray and silver. Their details were beautiful, romantic, elegant and timeless. There were a few rustic touches, too, and they all created the most magical wedding.

Beth’s bouquets and floral arrangements were stunning! Carnations, mums, the most out-of-this-world dahlias, roses, succulents and greenery made the prettiest purple bouquets ever!

The sweetest purple flower crowns for two adorable flower girls!

We were so in love with Beth’s bridal gown from Low’s Bridal. The silhouette was gorgeous on her, and the stunning detail on this dress was insane. We loved the romantic hairstyle she chose and the sixpence she wore on her sparkly Kate Spade sneakers! She was such a joyful, glowy bride!

Beth’s maid of honor wore a beautiful, romantic dress in the prettiest shade of purple from Lulus. Christian looked so handsome in a classic black suit, and his best man wore navy and a purple tie. We really love tiny bridal parties, and this one was just pretty.

42631147_428286837698541_2633522453820735488_o.jpg

Beth’s favorite detail of the day was their amazing custom altar, which included white and gray drapes and tons of gorgeous purple florals. “Lesleigh did an AMAZING job turning my Pinterest idea into reality,” she said. “It couldn’t have been more perfect if she tried.”

She and Christian had planned to exchange their vows outside, but rainy weather pushed their ceremony indoors. And it truly couldn’t have been more beautiful or romantic! The rain let up long enough for them to have a few photos together outside though, and they are some of my favorite photos of this day!

My favorite part about getting married at The Barn is how accommodating they are to whatever you want. It was raining that day so the ceremony was moved inside. Once everything was almost over, I requested that the altar be moved outside to have pictures taken with it. Without any questions asked, it was moved outside for me which was no easy feat.

Sigh. So, so pretty out here, even on a dreary day!

Our team moved their beautiful altar back inside The Barn and placed it in the middle of the dance floor, with one of our gorgeous chandeliers lowered so it would hang in the middle of the altar.

“When I walked around the corner of The Barn and saw the inside for the first time with the decorations, I remember being in awe at how stunning everything turned out,” Beth said. “I was blown away at how gorgeous it looked and that it was MY wedding that looked this beautiful. Then of course I see my husband who was tearing up as he saw me for the first time that day. It was a moment that I’ll never forget.”

Beth and Christian’s ceremony was intimate and sweet. They were surrounded by their family and closest friends. And it was seriously the most romantic, dreamiest ceremony ever!

Everything was magical. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Everything I hoped and dreamed for and then more.

Beth and Christian had an adorable naked cake (with a delicious chocolate drizzle), topped with pretty purple flowers. Their cake table was elegant and a little bit rustic, with a purple tablecloth and a rustic wood door backdrop. They brought custom champagne glasses and an adorable personalized cake server set. We loved those little details!

The newlyweds haven’t gone on their honeymoon just yet, but they plan to go to St. Thomas in December!

I asked Beth to write us a review based on her experience, and these are the sweet words she said. “Amazing job. Anything I wanted or requested was taken care of. Best experience ever and would recommend to anyone thinking of eloping or having a wedding here period.”

Beth and Christian, your wedding day was so dreamy and perfect! We are so glad we got to plan it with you! We wish y’all the best, and have a great time in St. Thomas! xoxo

Morgan + Hadley's Western Ranch Wedding

When this sweet couple from Oklahoma told us they wanted western-inspired, super rustic details for their elopement, we were thrilled! You'd think a rustic venue like The Barn would have lots of western, ranch-styled weddings, but that really isn't the case. We pulled out allll the hay bales, horseshoes, tooled leather details, burlap, pallets, cotton bolls, shotgun shell boutonnieres... ALL the necessary items for a true ranch-styled wedding! Kelly Glaze Photography captured every detail from this wedding so perfectly... she is quickly becoming one of our faves!

Morgan and Hadley were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on June 28, 2018. Their western, ranch-styled theme fit flawlessly with our rustic venue and its surroundings. Their color palette was a gorgeous combination of blush, navy, mauve and champagne. "We didn’t really have a plan for the color scheme, it just kind of worked out with what looked best on the bridesmaids and groomsmen," Morgan said. "We truly wanted everyone to feel comfortable on our special day." Easygoing brides like Morgan are the best! 

40389450_1144200552422670_2431379680595542016_o.jpg

Morgan's bouquets and florals were ridiculously good, y'all. "Lesleigh did a PHENOMENAL job on the bouquets," she said. "I was absolutely blown away by all of the detail she put into them." They were full of pink and mauve peonies and roses, a little bit of blue thistle, touches of greenery, and a handful of cotton bolls, which really made these bouquets over-the-top amazing.

"I had a sweet friend of mine, Shaylee Wallace, hand tool a bouquet wrap for my bridal bouquet and it truly added such a sweet touch," Morgan said. This special detail made her bridal bouquet unique, unforgettable and truly extraordinary!

Morgan's pretty dress came from David's Bridal, and we are swooning over every detail - the simple silhouette, gorgeous lace, flattering neckline, fun sash, and her veil with the sweetest scalloped edges. "I wore my favorite pair of authentic turquoise earrings and my cowboy boots to complete my wedding dress," Morgan said. This beautiful bride is the real deal, y'all! Every western bride needs a piece of turquoise and a great pair of boots!

Blush pink, long bridesmaids dresses never, ever get old, and these from David's Bridal were SO pretty. These girls were elegant and fun, and they also kept things country with some sweet boots on their feet! The guys wore blue jeans, light blue button-ups, boots, and shotgun shell boutonnieres. The perfect look for a western wedding! 

40368617_1144203472422378_8209325130078224384_o.jpg

Morgan and Hadley shared a first look before their ceremony, and it was truly the most precious thing ever. Hadley was so happy to see his beautiful bride, and we can't get over how these two look at each other!

Our wedding day was everything I’ve ever dreamed of and so much more... Honestly we had the PERFECT day at The Barn. Every single detail was so unique and special. Lesleigh is amazing to work with and she truly makes your day so special.

Morgan and Hadley tied the knot out on the lawn in front of The Barn, and it was so full of western goodness. Their altar was made of white-washed pallets, rusty tin and a burlap drape. There were hay bales, a cowhide rug, horseshoes, pink florals and burlap-wrapped mason jars. My favorite detail was the monogrammed hay bale! Their ranch-inspired details fit so perfectly into the surroundings of the Twin Oaks Ranch! There has never been a more perfect wedding for this place! 

"There’s almost too many favorite details to pick, but I loved the wagon that Lesleigh decorated for our son to get pulled down in before I walked down the aisle," Morgan said. "It was the perfect touch! Also the chair that she incorporated for my late grandmother who passed the week before. To have her honored on the front row was so special for us."

Seriously though. This wagon! So so cute. 

Happiest bride ever! This lady was glowing. <3

The Twin Oaks team was amazing from day one. Lesleigh was so easy to talk to and get ahold of always. She truly listened and incorporated all of our ideas and wants, and on the day of she was a complete lifesaver, so so helpful. The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch is definitely the place to get married at!

Our elopement collections include a cake cutting, and we made sure Morgan and Hadley had a cake that was as unique as the rest of their details! Lesleigh asked the decorators at Kneading Hands to recreate Morgan's leather bouquet wrap on their cake. And it turned out AMAZING! Seriously the most unique cake ever. The pink flowers and pops of blue thistle made this cake extra special. And of course we stuck it on a wooden crate on top of a rustic barrel, because that's just what you do for a ranch-inspired cake display! 

Morgan's most unforgettable moment from her wedding day was a really precious one during their reception. "It felt like from the time we got there until the time we left, the two hours flew by," she said. "But the second I got on that dance floor with my husband and we two-stepped to 'When I Said I Do' by Clint Black, time just stood still completely. It was most definitely my favorite moment from our wedding."

Morgan and Hadley haven't gone on their honeymoon just yet, but they plan to go on a cruise to Grand Cayman, Jamaica and Cozumel in Februrary!

Morgan and Hadley, it was an honor to plan your amazing wedding with you! We loved EVERY detail, and we're overjoyed that you chose The Barn as your venue! We wish y'all the best! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Holly + Tyler's Shabby Chic Pink & Lavender Wedding

I hope you're prepared to see the cutest wedding ever! We love a sweet shabby chic wedding, so we were thrilled when this couple requested shabby chic details and a girly color palette. Holly and Tyler booked their wedding and tied the knot all within three weeks! That is more than enough time for us to pull off a gorgeous wedding... and, in fact, we've actually pulled a wedding off in just three days. Holly's bestie, Erin Kindy Photography, took these photos, and we can't wait to share all the adorable details with you!

Holly and Tyler were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on May 31, 2018. They chose a color palette full of shades of pink (bright pink! blush! all the pinks!) and lavender. Their theme was shabby chic, and there were rustic and vintage details, as well. 

Holly's bridal bouquet was one of my all time favorites! Our team combined bright pink peonies, alllll kinds of ridiculously pretty pink roses, a few lavender flowers, and a little bit of greenery, all tied up with pink ribbon to create the most gorgeous, girliest bouquet ever. LOVE! And that ring shot... swoon!

Holly's dress was simple and stunning. The scallop detailing and sheer back were so uniquely pretty. We love a simple dress, but this one was extra special! We also loved Holly's elegant hairstyle and jewelry. This bride was glowing! 

We were crazy about Holly and Tyler's shabby chic, vintage ceremony details! They used our vintage white doors at their altar, with the loveliest pink florals, pink fringe details (so cute), and little pink mason jars filled with flowers. The rustic wooden barrel and crates kept this altar from being too girly. Literally the most adorable wedding ceremony we've seen!

This pink fringe detail though. SO dang adorable.

Holly and Tyler had a short and sweet reception that included an adorable shabby chic cake display and hors d'oeuvres. They had the cutest, tiniest naked cake topped with pink and lavender flowers and lace. There were more pretty pink and lavender florals in pink mason jars, and even an arrangement on an old, rustic ladder. And more of that super cute pink fringe garland!
