Katie + Cory's Rustic Purple & Turquoise Wedding

I'm so excited to share this Throwback Thursday wedding from last spring with y'all! Katie and Cory's wedding was one of our many purple weddings from last year, and we loved it so. Their details were SO fun (just like the two of them!), and every little part of their wedding day was truly special. Plus, this wedding has me even more excited for our upcoming spring weddings!!! Tracye Harned Photography beautifully captured this sweet couple's day, and I can't wait for you to see it!


Katie and Cory were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on May 21, 2016. Their color palette included purple and turquoise. "I knew that I wanted peacock colors in my wedding, but I just did not know how to incorporate them," Katie said. "The Barn did a great job of tying all the colors in." Their details were rustic chic and super fun (I mean, look at that paper airplane exit... these two are FUN!). 

Katie's florals were stunning - the were full of bright turquoise and purple, and they had such a beautiful rustic look. "My bouquet had a peacock feather in it and my grandmothers brooch on the front," Katie said. "I told the ladies at The Barn that I was not a big fan of flowers and that I did not want any roses. They did a great job of making the bouquets look fabulous with greenery and peacock colors. They were beautiful."

Check out this adorable boutonniere... We love Katie's use of peacock feathers! 

Katie's bridal gown was from Low's Bridal, and it was perfect for such a fun, late spring wedding! I love everything about this dress: the neckline, the lace, the back, the train, the silhouette... It is all perfect, and Katie couldn't have been more gorgeous! 

I seriously LOVE these bridesmaids' dresses, which were also from Low's! They were such a fun shade of purple, and I love the length, the fuller skirt, and the gorgeous, lacy neckline on these. Plus, each of these girls wore BOOTS, which was just the icing on the cake! The guys looked so great too, in jeans, boots, white shirts, brown vests, and turquoise ties. Such a fashionable bridal party!

There were also a few adorable, little bridal party attendants, too! The tutus, boots, denim vests, and flower crowns on those flower girls... My heart can't handle the cuteness!

Katie and Cory had such a sweet, emotional first look. Okay, is it terrible to admit that we love it when a groom cries?! There is truly nothing sweeter! 

My favorite part about getting married at The Barn was that it was so stress free. They allowed me to just be happy and not worry about anything on or before my wedding day.

Katie's favorite details of the day were her ceremony details, and can you blame her?! They were amazing! They were rustic and a little bit boho, with painted glass bottles hanging on their altar and tons of bright colored flowers. "The aisle was decorated with my colors and flowers that looked so pretty," she said. "The altar also had the peacock colors and glass bottles which was one of the things that the ladies at The Barn suggested."

The wedding went off without a hitch! Everything was beautiful and very organized... They did a wonderful job. They did everything that we asked and so much more. I was not good at picking out what I wanted but the team did such a great job on our wedding!

Katie and Cory's reception was also fun and gorgeous, with rustic chic tablescapes and several fun, special details! Their tables included white tablecloths, burlap runners and purple runners, purple and turquiose napkins, and bright, beautiful floral arrangements. They had a candy buffet, which included all of their favorite candies. "We also had a memorial table set up for those guests who are no longer with us," Katie said. 

"The groom's cake was a welder because that is what my husband does for a living," Katie said. "Our wedding cake also looked like a tree and had our initials carved into it because I wanted something unique." Fun fact: the groom's cake was featured on the Weldporn Instagram account. ;) 

Katie and Cory shared their first dance, danced with their parents (Cory and his mom had such a fun choreographed dance!), and had such a fun party with their loved ones. One moment of the day that Katie will never forget was their paper airplane send off! After their day was over, they headed off to Disney World for their honeymoon. "We had a great week at the most magical place on earth," Katie said. "We got to act like kids and not be judged!"

Katie and Cory, your big day was so sweet and special! We're so thankful that we got to plan your best day ever with you! Cheers to y'all! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
