Katie + Joe's Rock 'N Roll Themed Wedding

Today's #TBT post is unlike any other you've seen on The Barn Blog... We've never done another wedding anything like this one! It was featured allllll over the web (on One Lovely Day and WeddingWire, just to name a couple), and we weren't even surprised. The couple was the best, the theme was unique, and the details (polka dots! a black wedding cake! a tattoo station!) were so, sooo fun and adorable!

These photos were taken by the talented Liz Chrisman, and she couldn't have done a more perfect job capturing this wedding. Y'all are in for a treat with this one!


Katie and Joe were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on April 27, 2013. Their colors were black, white and red, and their theme was rock 'n roll-meets-1950s pin-up! Their decor was full of polka dots, anemones, and even pistols... It was unique, so fun, and unforgettable!

One of my favorite details of the day was Katie's lovely dress. It was tea-length, with adorable white polka dots and a red sash. She accessorized with a birdcage veil and red shoes. She carried a simple, black and white anemone bouquet which fit their theme perfectly. 

What a fun, fabulous bride!

The bridesmaids wore pin-up inspired black and white polka dotted dresses and carried red and black pomander flowers. Joe wore a gray suit with a red tie, red socks, and black and white shoes. He wore a dice on his anemone boutonniere, which was a great detail! His groomsmen wore black suits and red ties. We loved this group's rockabilly-inspired look!

Joe went above and beyond on their wedding details! He designed a custom font and invitation suite, and we are still in love with them! How great are these paper details?! 

Katie and Joe's altar was the most fun altar EVER. They had a red streamer backdrop and red, black and white paper flowers all over the altar. Their aisle was pretty simple, with paper flowers and black and white silhouettes on red frames. They had a super cute guestbook... It was a tree that their guests stamped with their thumbprints, in red or black ink! 

With a theme as fun as this one, of course Katie and Joe's wedding portraits were fun and insanely cute! 


The reception details were where things got even more awesome! Their tables included red linens, black and white striped and polka dotted runners, anemone arrangements finished off with black pistols (what's a rock 'n roll wedding without 'em?!), black and white polka dotted place settings, framed black and white silhouettes, and black and white striped straws in mason jars. There was even custom calligraphy confetti sprinkled on their tables! 

Some of the most fun, unique reception details were a black wedding cake (with the cutest topper), personalized koozies for favors, and a tattoo station with custom temporary tats! 

This wedding was definitely a breath of fresh air for us... It sure was fun for our team to work on a wedding with a theme that was wayyyy different than what we're used to! Who knew rockabilly could look so pretty inside a rustic barn?! 

Katie and Joe, thank you so much for choosing to get married at The Barn! We still LOVE your amazing wedding, even after all these years! Y'all rock, and we wish you the best! xoxoxoxoxo
