Michelle + Chad's Rustic Purple Wedding

I feel like it's been forever since I shared a Barn Wedding with y'all, so I'm really excited about this one! Today's wedding just so happens to be one of our most repinned weddings. (Speaking of pins, are y'all following us on Pinterest?!) And when you see it, you're gonna know why over 1,300 people have repinned this beauty.

These photos, taken by Melissa McCrotty, are phenomenal (but then again, aren't ALL of Melissa's photos?). They really capture how magical it is to get married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch


Michelle and Chad were married at The Barn on September 22, 2012. Michelle's wedding colors were different shades of purple, with a few pops of green, blue and pink. Michelle described her theme as "floral with rustic details." 

"I love flowers and I wanted flowers everywhere!" Michelle said. And that's what she got. Her purple flowers were SO, so, soooo gorgeous. I mean, check out that bouquet!

While we're on the subject of gorgeous things, let's talk about Michelle's dress. It is stunning! It's such a classic, beautiful style, and the lace is perfection. She purchased her dress from Danielle's Bridal in Clarksville. 

Michelle and Chad's first look was just precious and oh-so-romantic. The way those two look at each other... swoon! I'm sorry for the number of photos you're about to see, but all of this couple's wedding portraits are so pretty that there was no way I could narrow them down.

Michelle and Chad, y'all are way more attractive than anyone should be!

That last picture... SO CUTE!

Michelle and Chad also had a real good lookin' wedding party. Just look at them! Michelle's bridesmaids' pretty purple dresses were from Etsy. The groom and his groomsman sure look handsome, too... you can't go wrong with purple and gray! And this might be the cutest bunch of flower girls (and flower girl dresses!) around. The ring bearer is pretty darn precious, too! ;)

Michelle and Chad had a beautiful wedding ceremony, complete with tons and tons of gorgeous purple flowers, the most amazingly pretty altar, and the fanciest aisle we ever did see.

Our wedding was much more than I had anticipated! Lesleigh and her team did an amazing job with all the details I wanted incorporated into my wedding! They went up and beyond to provide the best for us and our guests.

After the kiss, this sweet couple had a magical reception, full of incredible floral arrangements, lace and burlap (always a winning combination), and lots of rustic goodness. The Barn sure does look stunning all dressed up in purple!

One really unique detail at their reception was the display of each of their cultures. "I wanted a mixture of my Latin culture with my Southern husband's style," Michelle said. "We provided the best of both worlds by giving our guests options on what types of food they preferred by either choosing Latin flavors or Southern cooking." It is always  super special when couples work in these kinds of details!

Michelle and Chad's cake, made by theCakePlace, fit in perfectly with the rustic theme. It was, like everything else, covered in the most beautiful purple flowers!

Another detail I love from their reception is the adorable favors! Michelle said they were "mason jars filled with hot chocolate mix, chocolate morsels and marshmallows for those cold nights when you would want a cup of hot chocolate." They sure are stinkin' cute. And y'all The Barn always has THE BEST place settings. See for yourself!

Michelle and Chad spent the rest of the evening dancing, playing games out on The Barn lawn, celebrating and having a good ol' time with their loved ones. Doesn't this look like a fun crowd?

At the end of the night, Michelle and Chad made their grand exit through a whole bunch of sparklers, which is always magical!

Michelle and Chad, your big day was beautiful! We're so thankful that y'all allowed us to be a part of your wedding day. We wish you the very best life has to offer!

I'll see y'all back here tomorrow!
