Kaitlyn + Michelle's Rustic-Elegant Wedding

Sometimes simple is better, and this gorgeous wedding is proof. This couple chose an understated color palette, simple details that were elegant-meets-rustic, and bouquets of greenery and baby’s breath. And it couldn’t have been more perfect! A few must-see details: wild, elegant florals, an amazing donut-topped cake, and reception details that were simple yet magical. This was our first time working with Natalie Smith Photography, and we are crazy for these pretty photos!

Kaitlyn and Michelle were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on May 4, 2019. Their details were both elegant and rustic, with wild, organic florals and earthy colors with pops of blue. “I wanted a lot of greenery and I based my colors off of the mauve-y color being my favorite color,” Kaitlyn said.


Kaitlyn and Michelle’s florals were wild yet elegant, with a messy, organic look. She wanted lots of greenery, and we loved all the texture of the different types of greenery in these bouquets! We added some touches of white with baby’s breath, and Kaitlyn’s bouquet included roses as well.


We’re absolutely swooning over Kaitlyn’s timeless bridal gown from David’s Bridal! This style of dress never gets old. We loved its beautiful lace, simple silhouette and neckline, jeweled belt, and sweeping veil. We also loved Kaitlyn’s fresh-faced look and simple jewelry. This bride was just lovely! Michelle wore blue pants and a blue jacket with a mauve tie... her outfit perfectly coordinated with the couple’s color scheme! These ladies make a gorgeous couple, and they couldn’t have looked more perfect on their big day!


Kaitlyn and Michelle’s bridesmaids also wore dresses from David’s Bridal, and we loved how their maid of honor wore a different dress than the other bridesmaids. We were totally into that shorter navy style, as well as the long, flowy mauve dresses!


Kaitlyn and Michelle’s ceremony details were simple, elegant and rustic. Their altar had an old whiskey barrel, a burlap drape, loads of greenery, and a few touches of baby’s breath and roses. Their aisle was lined with our 1 Corinthians 13 wooden calligraphy signs. Less is more, y’all! This simple ceremony was stunning.

During their ceremony, Kaitlyn and Michelle were surrounded by their loved ones, and Kaitlyn told us the one thing she would always remember about her wedding day is “the family and friends that came.”


After their ceremony, the newlyweds took a whole bunch of gorgeous portraits together! These photos are SO romantic and dreamy. The Barn in May is an absolute dream!

[Our wedding] was a fairytale! Everything I hoped and more!

Kaitlyn and Michelle’s reception was elegant and rustic. Their reception tables included white tablecloths, burlap runners, greenery and baby’s breath in assorted vases, gorgeous rustic candlesticks, and royal blue napkins. It was so beautiful! Kaitlyn said her favorite thing about getting married at The Barn was “how everything was there ready to go!”


We can’t stop obsessing over this cake from Kneading Hands Bakery. It had all the trendy elements - scraped frosting, a frosting drip, and greenery. And most importantly, it had donuts! The absolute best combo.


We never get tired of a grand exit, especially when there are rose petals involved! Kaitlyn and Michelle’s exit was sweet and romantic!

When I asked Kaitlyn to let us know how we did on her wedding day and during the planning process, she simply said, “Amazingly! I’ll recommend The Barn to any couple!”


Kaitlyn and Michelle, we’re beyond thrilled that we got to plan your gorgeous wedding with you! It was a dream! Best wishes to you both! xoxo
