Kingfisher. It’s a little town in western Oklahoma with roughly 5,000 people, and although we’ve never been there, it’s a place that we’ve grown to love. Fourteen people from that tiny town have traveled all the way to our little corner of Arkansas to tie the knot at The Barn. And they just keep on coming! We’re not complaining at all… we LOVE our Kingfisher couples and all the western, ranch style, rustic charm they’ve brought to our venue.
We’ve asked ourselves countless times why so many people from a town five hours away have driven all those miles to get married at our venue, and here’s what we’ve come to understand: word of mouth advertising is the BEST. We’ve never once ran an ad in Kingfisher’s newspaper (although we’ve joked about it) or advertised in that area in any way. Apparently our Kingfisher couples love us, because they and their families keep recommending us to their friends, cousins, sorority sisters, and other acquaintances and sending them our way! We’re so thankful for that, and can I just say how proud I am of The Barn’s reputation?! I may be biased, but The Barn is really something special, and this is proof.
Anyway, here are seven of our Kingfisher weddings! We’ll have to update this post in the future, because we have even more Kingfisher couples booked for this year! Kingfisher, we love ya. <3
Morgan and Wager were the OG Kingfisher couple. Their unique, gorgeous, boho cowboy elopement started it all! They eloped at The Barn back in the spring of 2016, and their elopement basically broke the internet. Their details were full of beautiful, fun colors, a little bit of vintage, some gypsy vibes, and a bunch of rustic touches, like steer heads, reclaimed wood and rusty tin. Their altar, made from pallets and rusty tin, was one of our all-time favorites, and we’ll be swooning over their cake table and bright colored florals forever. I guess this was the start of the Kingfisher cowhide! (If you know, you know.)
Almost two years after our first Kingfisher wedding, Stacy and Aaron tied the knot at The Barn. Their wedding was so romantic and intimate. They chose a color palette of mauve, burgundy, gray and ivory, and their details were romantic and elegant. They got married in front of The Barn, and it was just the prettiest day ever. We loved their purple florals, their beautiful ceremony, and their dreamy reception - especially the stunning garlands on their tables!
A month after Stacy and Aaron’s wedding, Stacy’s cousin Nikki and her husband Mac made the trip to The Barn for their elopement! They had first heard about The Barn way back when Morgan and Wager were married here, and they knew it was where they wanted to tie the knot as soon as they got engaged. What’s funny though is that Stacy and Nikki were both planning their weddings here without ever knowing about the other cousin’s upcoming wedding at The Barn! Nikki and Mac had the prettiest spring wedding, with touches of country, woodsy, vintage and rustic that fit them perfectly. Their altar was so pretty, and we also loved their cake display!
We loved every single detail from Morgan and Hadley’s western, ranch style wedding! They brought a little bit of the Wild West with them to The Barn, and it was truly a wedding after our own hearts! We’ll forever be in love with the amazing hand tooled leather wrap around Morgan’s bouquet that matched their cake (best details ever). We adored their white washed pallet altar, their pretty pink florals, their monogrammed hay bale, and literally EVERYTHING. Y’all can’t miss a single detail from this one!
Amanda and Jon were the first of three fall 2018 Kingfisher couples! They chose the ultimate fall color palette - tan, burnt orange and sage green - and their details were rustic and so perfect for fall, with the prettiest fall florals, earthy details and wood accents throughout their decor. Their reception was absolutely stunning. They chose to have a full-on dinner party for their small guest list, so it was incredibly intimate and dreamy. And of course they included the Kingfisher cowhide in their ceremony decor!
Our beloved windmill wedding… Erica and Matt’s fall wedding was just so pretty. Their colors were red, brown, turquoise and cream, and their details were rustic. We used windmills, lots of old rusty things, wheat and creamer cans throughout their decor, and it was one of my personal favorite weddings of the year. We LOVED everything about their ceremony… and yep, there it is, the Kingfisher cowhide! We loved their bold red florals. We loved their gorgeous cake display. And their portraits were some of the prettiest we’ve ever seen! Go check out their post and swoon over them all!
The next weekend, Autumn and Tanner eloped at The Barn. Tanner is actually Matt’s son… as in Matt from the wedding the previous weekend! He and Autumn got ahold of us the Friday after Erica and Matt’s wedding, and we planned their wedding in just two days! It turned out SO gorgeous, and we’ll always lovingly refer to this one as our longhorn wedding. If you know us, you know their longhorn altar was one of our all-time faves (we also included the Kingfisher cowhide, obviously). We loved their elegant white and green color palette, their timeless florals, and literally every detail!
We can’t wait to share even more Kingfisher couples with y’all in the future! I’m thinking we need a second location in Kingfisher, or at least a Kingfisher Collection!
