It sure is feeling like winter in our neck of the woods all of a sudden, but this gorgeous August elopement has us feeling all the warmth! This wedding will always be memorable for us, because it was the day we debuted a brand new altar! There were many details to love, including the prettiest pink florals, a breathtaking bride, a gorgeous ceremony set up in front of The Barn, and so much more. One of our favorites, Tryston Hines, photographed this wedding… as always, we are swooning over her photos!

Katelyn and Richard were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on August 18, 2018. Their colors were blush and navy, and their details were glam meets rustic. “I am a very bling person, and The Barn made something unique just for me,” Katelyn said.
Katelyn’s florals were feminine and gorgeous. They were full of blush and ivory roses, astilbe, greenery and a few pops of navy from blue thistle and the prettiest berries. “My bouquets were beautiful,” Katelyn said. “They were exactly how I wanted.” Katelyn carried a photo of her mother on a charm on her bouquet, which she said was one of her favorite details. Her mom recently passed away, and this was such a special way to honor her on Katelyn’s big day.
Katelyn was the most stunning bride. We were head over heels in love with her timeless dress, which was from David’s Bridal, but our absolute favorite part of her bridal look was her incredible veil! It was trimmed in the most beautiful lace, and it totally made her look. We also loved her sparkly accessories.
We are SWOONING over this ring shot! What a gorgeous, unique ring this lady is so lucky to wear!
Katelyn’s bridesmaids wore long navy dresses, also from David’s Bridal, and the guys wore classic black suits. There were some seriously cute kiddos in this bridal party as well. Katelyn also included her pup, Arabella, in her wedding party… isn’t this the cutest, fanciest dog ever?! She was wedding ready in her blush outfit and navy bow! We can’t even handle this!
Katelyn and Richard had a very sweet, intimate first look before their ceremony. These photos are just the sweetest. One of the best parts of our job is seeing how much our couples adore one another… it gets us in our feels every time!
Katelyn and Richard tied the knot on the lawn in front of The Barn. Our team built a custom hexagon altar just for Katelyn and Richard’s ceremony, which we then draped in a glittery gold fabric and finished with a few pink floral arrangements. Glamorous meets rustic has never been prettier! Their aisle included a few small floral arrangements in mason jars, and their guestbook table had pink florals and a touch of bling, too.
Katelyn and Richard exchanged their vows in an intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends in attendance. It was one of the most gorgeous days of the summer… the perfect day for such a sweet celebration of love!
They had a small reception with a cake cutting inside The Barn. Their tiny cake, from Kneading Hands Bakery, was the CUTEST. The gold, glittery “love” cake topper and pretty florals made this cake so special and sweet. It sat on top of a vintage barrel and some gold sequined fabric, which was the perfect combination of glam and rustic. We keep our elopement receptions super simple, so the rest of The Barn had a few cocktail tables with navy tablecloths and small floral arrangements. “I loved The Barn,” Katelyn said. “It was absolutely gorgeous!”
The most memorable moment of the day for Katelyn came during the reception. “I’ll always remember how my husband looked at me during the first dance,” she said. “It was unexplainable!”
Katelyn and Richard, we LOVED planning your elopement with you! We adored every gorgeous detail! Congratulations and best wishes! xoxo
