Ashley + Trent's Romantic Summer Wedding

An unforgettable altar. A stunning cake. A blush and metallic color palette. A jazzy theme. A swoon-worthy bridal gown... These are just a few of the things we're still obsessing over from this sweet summer wedding! Ashley and Trent were married at The Barn last month, and their wedding was a dream!

Trent's aunt Vanda, from Vanda Crank Photography, photographed their wedding, and she did a beautiful job! These photos are so romantic and dreamy!

Ashley and Trent were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on May 27, 2017. Their color palette was a gorgeous, unique combination of blush, plum, gray and metallics. And they had a really great theme! "Trent is really into jazz," Ashley said. "He is a saxophone player, so we wanted a theme that was romantic, classic and kind of jazzy!" 

Two of the most gorgeous details from this wedding: Ashley's jaw-dropping bridal gown (from David's Bridal) and the ahhhh-mazing florals! We LOVE a bold, fashionable bridal gown and this one was sorta EVERYTHING. Can't get over the ruffles, the gorgeous detailing, and the prettiest veil ever. Ashley, you are so beautiful! She also wore several meaningful pieces of jewelry that made her bridal look even more special.

"Some of the biggest details that I incorporated into my wedding day were some of the smallest, my jewelry!" she said. "Trent's grandmother had passed early this year, so to bring her memory into our ceremony, I wore earrings that her husband had given her. My 'something blue' was also a brooch from my sister-in-law's late grandmother. I literally had a piece of every family that was coming together that day, and that made it so much more special!!"

"The bouquets were gorgeous!" she said. "I loved my bouquet so much!!! I wish I could carry it with me everyday! I chose a bride bouquet that had little pops of color and lots of volume! I love the cascading look, so that's what we went for! For the bridesmaids, I went with a more classic rounded bouquet, but kept it a little wild with some pieces that popped out all over! They were amazing!"

Ashley's bridesmaids wore plum dresses from David's Bridal. Each one was a tiny bit different, which is such a fun look! Trent and his groomsmen looked so handsome in gray and plum! One more sweet detail: the pretty ribbons hanging from the bridesmaids' bouquets!

Never ever get tired of a good Bridesmaids pose! ;)

Ashley said one moment she would always remember from her wedding day was her first look with her dad. "Before walking down the isle, my father gave me a Pandora bracelet that I've worn every day since," she said. Such a sweet moment!

Ashley and Trent's ceremony was beautiful, romantic and the perfect start of their lives together as husband and wife! Ashley's favorite detail of the day was her altar. "I loved the hanging mason jars and the sparkly pink backdrop," she said. "It was magical!"

These flower girls!!! Ridiculously cute. 

It was more than I had hoped for! Everything went so smoothly, and turned out more beautiful than I had expected! Everything was breathtaking!

Ashley and Trent are the sweetest couple, and I love their post-ceremony photos together. I also can't get enough of that altar and all the beautiful colors! 

Not only was the planning easy, but I never felt worried or stressed during the whole process! You will not find another venue anything like The Barn. It’s definitely one of a kind, with one of a kind girls that will make your dreams come true!

Ashley and Trent's reception was romantic and magical, with lots of metallic details and plenty of pretty blush pink. Two of the most gorgeous details were the edible ones: their cakes! Ashley's cake was TO DIE FOR. She said it was one of her most memorable details of the day, because it was just as yummy as it was pretty! These cakes look SO GOOD. 

Ashley said she would also always remember her first dance with Trent. These two are the sweetest. <3

In fact, they are so sweet that they did something amazing instead of giving their guests favors to take home. β€œWe decided as a couple, in leiu of favors, to donated to a local animal shelter the money we would have spent on favors,” Ashley said. Is that not an amazing idea?!

After Ashley and Trent made their grand exit (with sparklers, of course), they headed down to Florida for a fun, romantic honeymoon in the sun. "We actually left that night and made our way down to Vero Beach, Florida," Ashley said. "There is a Disney resort there right on the beach, and it was amazing!! Especially the food....you can't beat fresh seafood!"

"I have so many things to say about The Barn Team, but I guess the main thing I'd like to say is Thank You!" she said. "Not only was the planning easy, but I never felt worried or stressed during the whole process! Cindy was always a text away at any time, and answered all questions I had quickly! Lesleigh was an absolute doll; she even bartended for us when our bartender had to call in sick! You will not find another venue anything like The Barn. It's definitely one of a kind, with one of a kind girls that will make your dreams come true!"

Ashley and Trent, we are so thankful that y'all chose to say I Do at The Barn! We LOVED your wedding, and we are so happy for you two! We wish y'all the best! Much love. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
