There's nothing that makes our hearts go pitter patter quite like tiny details! They truly make a wedding, y'all. We LOVE planning our weddings down to the smallest details, like escort cards, coordinating straws, and napkin holders. Sure, the smaller ones may not be the most photographed details of you're day, but they're truly what make your wedding all your own! One of our favorite small details to plan: place settings! Food just tastes better when it's served on something pretty, am I right?! Picking out details for place settings is SO fun... There are tons of pretty plates, napkin colors/folds/holders, chargers, silverware, and drinkware to choose from! There are so many ways to mix and match them, and they never turn out the same!
The Barn always has the BEST place settings... We love 'em simple, colorful, classic, quirky, and every style in between. Here are just a few of our faves! P.S. It was nearly impossible to narrow down our tons of gorgeous place settings to only ten, so expect a part two (and maybe three, four...) to this post in the future. ;)
Our Native American Heritage styled shoot, which took place in the fall of 2014, was a nod to the rich Native American history that surrounds The Barn, the town of Dardanelle, and all of Yell County. This shoot was full of teepees, headdresses, flower crowns, horses, amazing gowns, and so many other great details! With all the other Native American-inspired details, it only made sense to include feathers in our place settings. And they were fab!
Ashley + Ivan's wedding was the epitome of elegance! Every detail of their day was unforgettable, from the over-the-top altar to the entire reception! Their tables were some of our favorites, with burlap and lace accents, mismatched glassware (these make ANY table look gorgeous!), amazing white florals, and pretty, elegant place settings. They were simple, but the glittery napkin rings gave them the perfect pop of personality!
Ohhh, those bow napkins kill me every time! Add in our glittery napkin rings, and I just about can't handle the cuteness! Megan + Daniel's wedding is one that I always come back to... It was full of great details, including one of my favorite altars, the prettiest bouquets full of garden roses, a peach and mint candy buffet, and these ridiculously cute place settings! Fun fact: our most repinned image ever is from this wedding! You can see the photo in their blog post... It's the Instagram photo of the memory table with the pallet backdrop!
Kierstan + Bradley's wedding was truly rustic chic. Many of their details were inspired by nature, and they had lots of burlap. But there were also many elegant, totally chic details that made us swoon! We're talking about their RIDICULOUS petal aisle (nothing else like it!), the neutral colored amazingggg bouquets, and these chic place settings! The detailing on those plates made their reception tables super special!
A somewhat unexpected combination that stole my heart: greenery and gold! Mackenzie + Tyler's wedding was full of glamorous, glittery gold details, as well as greenery garlands that were so elegant, we could hardly stand it! You've got to see ALL the details from this wedding. This one is a must-see! It's been a year and a half, and we haven't stopped obsessing over their florals or all the fab gold and greenery!
Nikki + Scott's elegant, glamorous pink and gold wedding is still one of our most talked about, and we absolutely understand why! Everything about this wedding was memorable... The amazing dinner and drink menus, the party, the pink candy buffet, and hellooooo! Those reception tables!!! Glittery chevron table runners, mercury glass vases holding pink flowers, beautiful calligraphy menus, and simply elegant gold place settings. This wedding was a dream!
When you're tables have a lot going on, your place settings can be super simple! Amber + Matt's red and turquoise wedding was truly amazing! When I heard about their bold color scheme, I was a litttttle bit skeptical... But holy cow, it turned out to be one of the most unique, gorgeous, unforgettable weddings we've done! Who could forget their petal aisle, that ALTAR!, or their bold, colorful reception tables?
Katie + Alan's blush, gold and emerald wedding was full of whimsy and the prettiest details. Their place settings are too pretty for me to handle! The gold dots + glittery napkin rings + blush napkins... Too much for my blush-and-gold-loving heart! Other highlights of this wedding: the best pink bouquets, a blush bridal gown (!!!), pops of emerald, and our game lawn looking fab in gold sequined tablecloths!
Once again, the cutest bow napkins! Lyndsey + Brad's reception table details were rustic chic, with burlap and lace table runners, navy tablecloths, and burlap napkin ties. This wedding had a fun coral and navy color palette, chevron galore (even on the guys' bow ties!), and an awesome popcorn bar!
This is another example of a busy table not needing extravagant place settings. Our Magical Meadow styled shoot is still my favorite! I could go on and on about the flowers, dessert table, drink table, the gorgeous gowns, and literally EVERY. single. detail... The blush and black lace tablecloth + simple, elegant place settings were just the icing on a very delicious cake!
