Kelsie + Chris's Bohemian Summer Elopement

I knew I liked this bride from the beginning, because we share (almost) the same name! And then when I saw the gorgeous theme and colors she chose for her wedding day, I knew I liked her even more. This was our LAST wedding of summer 2019, and we went out with a bang! Kelsie and Chris’s boho-rustic-hippie elopement was a dream, and we’re so excited to share with you their photos by the always amazing Crystal Malloy Photography!

Kelsie and Chris were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on July 18, 2019. Their colors were so pretty for summer - light purple with pops of white, yellow and blue. Kelsie described their theme as “rustic boho-hippie.” We loved their combination of bohemian and rustic chic styles!

Kelsie’s bouquets and florals were so unique and pretty! Her bridal bouquet included hydrangeas and roses in the pretty shades of purple, white roses, a few pops of blue, ferns, and the prettiest fan palm! She described her florals as “just gorgeous,” and we totally agree!


While we love over the top bridal gowns, we also can’t get enough of simple, minimalistic ones either. Kelsie’s dress was simple and understated, yet elegant, timeless and stunning. She paired it with a gorgeous veil trimmed with lace and a great pair of shoes. She was such a beautiful, joyful bride!


Kelsie and Chris’s daughters were their bridesmaids, and we loved their blue, white and yellow dresses! Kelsie said having their daughters in their wedding was the most unforgettable part of their wedding day. Their sweet pup also tagged along… we seriously LOVE it when our couples bring their pets! Wedding photos are 10 million times cuter when they include pets. It’s a fact!


Kelsie and Chris tied the knot on the front lawn out in front of The Barn in a bohemian-chic ceremony. Their altar was a boho dream! Would you just look at this drape?! We finished it off with a tieback floral arrangement on the side of the drape, a hanging arrangement, and a couple basket full of florals and ferns. Their aisle was lined with wire sconces and tiny purple, blue and white floral arrangements. Kelsie described the decor as “simple yet beautiful” and said it was one of her favorite parts of the day. “I love the outdoor beauty and Lesleigh added the beautiful flowers and decor,” she said.


The ceremony was romantic and intimate, with their daughters, their families, and their closest friends supporting them as they exchanged their vows. Can you tell this sweet dad adores his girls?! Melting our hearts. <3


As they were pronounced husband and wife, and Chris kissed his bride… Kelsie’s veil fell right off! Must have been some kiss. ;)

Kelsie and Chris’s portraits were sweet, simple and romantic. These two were all smiles on their big day, and their photos show just how joyful they were to become husband and wife! A laughing bride and groom are the best kind of bride and groom.


Kelsie and Chris’s cake table was a little bit boho-chic, a little bit rustic, and completely jaw dropping! One of our favorite details from this day was this tree all prettied up with some vintage lace doilies! We were also CRAZY about their purple and gold cake, made by our super talented cake vendor, Kneading Hands Bakery.


The newlyweds headed off on a road trip to Colorado after their big day! When I asked Kelsie to let me know how our team did on her wedding day, she simply said, “The Twin Oaks Team did a wonderful job!”

From one Kelsi(e) to another, let me just say that I ADORED your wedding! We’re so happy that we got to plan this sweet, special day with you two! We wish you both the best! xoxo
