The Barn Loves Kingfisher!

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!

Black & Red Gothic Victorian Wedding

“But we loved with a love that was more than love— 
    I and my Annabel Lee— 
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven 
    Coveted her and me.”
- Edgar Allan Poe, “Annabel Lee”

Every once in a while, a couple asks us to do something crazy and outside of our comfort zone, and in all honesty, we LOVE it. We’ve done several weddings that fall into the “one of a kind” category, and this one should definitely be filed as one of The Barn’s craziest weddings ever. And we mean that in very much a GOOD way. How awesome is our team for being able to pull off everything from more traditional weddings to Gothic-Victorian weddings like this one. There’s nothing they can’t do!

Kai from Khaleel Photography was the most perfect photographer we could’ve imagined for a wedding like this one; his photos are moody, a little dark and gorgeous. This one probably won’t fit with most of our readers’ styles, but it’s so uniquely beautiful and we know you will love it! Our team’s creativity really shines through in this wedding’s details… just wait until y’all see the ceremony and reception details and the most insane cake you’ve ever laid eyes on!

This couple eloped at The Barn on November 10, 2018. The bride described their theme as “Gothic Victorian.” Honestly, this wedding gave us major Edgar Allan Poe vibes and we were 100% feeling it. Their color palette was perfect for a wedding with goth details - black, deep reds, rose gold and ivory. The bride said her absolute favorite thing about her wedding day was “the really Gothicy feel.”

There were so many incredible, unique details at this wedding, but the bride’s dress (from Always & Forever) was one of our favorites, hands down. The Barn’s first black bridal gown EVER, and we’re in love with it! She kept the goth vibes going with her nails and accessories, as well. This couple went all out with their theme and they rocked it!

For the couple’s bouquets and florals, our team chose dark red roses and black star calla lilies. “It was so me!” the bride said.

The ceremony details were a little creepy and seriously cool. We did an epic dark red rose petal design down their aisle, and their altar was Gothed out with a black drape, and black and dark red florals. Their aisle was lined with lanterns with black ribbons and hanging dark red flowers. It was uniquely gorgeous, and even though it was not our norm, we were totally into it.

Their reception was equally Gothic, Victorian and elegant. Their tables included black tablecloths, sparkly black sequined runners, black and red florals in mirrored boxes, candles (including some awesome black tapers in black candlesticks), lanterns, and vases filled with branches. Their sweetheart table included hanging bulbs and a little bit of fog action for the perfect creepy touch. It was beautiful, and the bride said the inside of The Barn was one of her favorite parts of her wedding day. Who knew goth could be so darn pretty?!

Remember when I said this wedding had the most insane cake ever?! Here it is in all its glory! Kneading Hands Bakery absolutely blew us away with this gorgeous, super detailed Victorian style cake. Check out that level of detail! Our team created a custom red “til death do us part” skull topper and added dripping black calla lilies and red roses. The black candles and sparkly black runner on their cake table were the icing on the cake!

Kai took such gorgeous pictures around The Barn, and since this bride said The Barn itself was her favorite detail of the day, let us just brag for a minute about how pretty this place is. ;) Check out the creepy vibes in that first photo!

This wedding is officially one of our most unforgettable weddings of all time. We will never forget this one, and we wish this couple the very best! xoxo

Bailey + Mason's Navy, Blush & Burgundy Fall Wedding

This intimate October wedding was just the prettiest, sweetest wedding ever. A super sweet couple, a beautiful fall color palette, the most elegant details, and some seriously gorgeous florals… we loved every second of this one. We’re absolutely swooning over these dreamy photos by Hannah Motes, who is the sister-in-law of the bride, and we know y’all are going to adore this one!

Bailey and Mason were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on October 26, 2018. Their navy, blush and burgundy color palette was stunning, and it was absolutely perfect for a fall wedding. Their details were elegant and luxurious. Every piece of this wedding was pure beauty! “Honestly I give Pinterest all the credit,” Bailey said. “But I knew I wanted a fall wedding and wanted the colors to match.”

Wedding videography is always a good idea, and we encourage our couples to work it into their budget if they’re able to! It’s truly the best way to remember every moment from your wedding day that you don’t want to forget - all the emotions, all the details, all the people who made your day so special. A video really captures the vibes from your wedding day, and we can’t recommend them enough. We LOVE Bailey and Mason’s sweet, romantic video from Blue Box Videography.

Bailey’s florals were luxurious and beautiful, with white roses, deep red dahlias, a little bit of blush astilbe and greenery. They were simple yet gorgeous. The white ribbon tied around her bouquet was the perfect touch. “I asked for something simple and not too big and that’s exactly what I got,” she said.

Bailey found her dream dress at David’s Bridal, and it was perfection. It had a gorgeous neckline, the prettiest lace, and a lovely silhouette. It was timeless and classic, but the plunging back kept it totally modern. You were the most gorgeous bride, Bailey!

This sweet bride said her absolute favorite moment of the day was her first look with her soon-to-be husband. “The beautiful background and the privacy of it was so special,” she said. “I still tear up when I think about it.”

[Our wedding] was EVERYTHING I had hoped for. I had been engaged for a year and a half before I called The Barn. I was overwhelmed with planning and finally decided to call and ask for help. Lesleigh took over and made it exactly what I wanted. The day of went so smoothly and I loved how laid back and calm it was. I never once felt pressured or overwhelmed. I was able to truly enjoy my wedding day. Having my wedding at The Barn was the best decision I could have made.
— Bailey

Some of my favorite details from this wedding were the bridal party’s attire. The guys’ navy suits and burgundy ties paired with the girls’ blush and burgundy dresses... it was just so beautiful. Bailey allowed her bridesmaids to choose their own dresses, and it could not have turned out any prettier! “I gave them a color and let them decide,” she said. “I love the way it turned out with all the different shades of blush.”

IMG_2991.jpg

Bailey and Mason’s ceremony was intimate and dreamy. Their altar was so romantic, with burgundy drapes and lush florals. Their aisle was lined with wire sconces filled with burgundy and white flowers, and they had a simple, adorable guestbook table with a small floral arrangement and a spot for guests to drop their written well wishes for the couple.

Baileys favorite thing about getting married at The Barn was “how intimate it was,” she said. “I can’t pick a favorite detail because it was all the little details put in together that really made it feel special. I felt like everything flowed and tied my vision together perfectly.”

IMG_2285.jpg
I’m in a really busy part of my life right now trying to finish my last semester of college and am so indecisive. I made a Pinterest page and kind of told Lesleigh she had free creative range of my wedding to do what she thought looked best. She combined everything from that Pinterest board and turned it into something so much better! She is honestly the sweetest person and I’m so thankful for her!

How precious is this family?!

Bailey and Mason had a cake cutting inside The Barn, and it was romantic and so dreamy under The Barn’s gorgeous lighting and draping. How magical does this look?! They had the cutest little cake ever. I never get tired of this style of cake… super simple with a few beautiful flowers. Perfect!

Bailey and Mason, thank you so much for letting us plan your wedding with you! It was absolutely perfect, and we loved every bit of it. Best wishes and congratulations! xoxo

Autumn + Tanner's Neutral Ranch Wedding

Happy New Year! We’re so excited that our first post of the new year features one of our very favorite weddings from last year! We’ve dubbed this our “longhorn wedding,” and if you know us at all, you know this was right up our alley! This sweet couple was another of our beloved Kingfisher couples, and it made our month that they drove all the way from western Oklahoma to get hitched at The Barn! Tanner just so happens to be Matt’s son, and he and Autumn tied the knot just one weekend after Matt and Erica were here! Autumn got ahold of us on a Friday and asked if they could get married on Sunday… as in two days later. It was kinda crazy, but we LOVED this gorgeous wedding and this couple! Crystal Malloy Photography captured this wedding so beautifully - she’s pretty much the official photographer for our Kingfisher couples, and we’re always obsessed with her work.

Autumn and Tanner were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on December 9, 2018. Their color palette was full of whites and greens. They chose a rustic, ranch style theme, and many of their details were also classic. It was just SO pretty and perfect for The Barn’s surroundings!

Autumn was the prettiest bride ever, y’all. She wore a classic, timeless dress from David’s Bridal, and we loved every part of it - especially the gorgeous lace neckline. She wore beautiful, classic accessories, including a gorgeous pair of earrings, the prettiest sash around her waist, a stunning veil trimmed with lace, and a great pair of boots. Autumn, you were absolutely glowing!

We loved this beautiful mama getting ready for her wedding day while holding her adorable baby boy!

Autumn had the most timeless bouquets and florals. She wanted loads of white roses and greenery, and it was so simple yet stunning. The wrap on her bouquet consisted of leather and lace, which was such a unique, personal touch. “It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!” she said. “It was everything I could’ve asked for!”

2Z1A1409.jpg

At The Barn, we LOVE our longhorns, so we were thrilled when Autumn and Tanner wanted longhorns used throughout their decor. We were CRAZY about this longhorn altar! Autumn said that was one of her favorite details, and it made their ceremony so unique and personal. In their altar setup, we also included ivory and burlap drapes, white flowers and lots of beautiful greenery, an old whiskey barrel, and of course, the Kingfisher cowhide. (If you don’t know, our Kingfisher couples love to tie the knot while standing on this thing, so we’ve officially named it after them! ;) This ceremony was just SO pretty. We can’t get over it!

2Z1A0771.jpg
2Z1A0776.jpg

Autumn and Tanner’s ceremony was incredibly intimate. Only their precious baby boy and Tanner’s mom were in attendance, and it was the sweetest little ceremony. Autumn said one moment she would always remember was “walking down the aisle to my handsome husband greeting me with the biggest smile on his face, telling me over and over again how beautiful I looked!”

Autumn’s absolute favorite thing about getting married at The Barn was “how unique Lesleigh made everything to make it our day,” she said. “My favorite part was how stress free and relaxed everything was!”

2Z1A0982.jpg

They did WONDERFUL and went above and beyond to make it everything we wanted in such a short amount of time. I literally messaged her on a Friday and we had a wedding 2 days later on a Sunday. It was everything I could’ve hoped and dreamed for!!
— Autumn

Crystal takes the best portraits of her couples, and we are swooning over these. They are incredibly romantic and beautiful, and I just can’t get over how lovely it is out here even in December! These two make such a gorgeous couple… get ready for some serious eye candy!

I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding! It was so relaxed and went so smooth. All we had to do was show up and get dressed. It was such an amazing experience. If you want a stress free wedding at a very reasonable price, I would choose The Barn any day! It was the best!! Lesleigh is such a sweetheart and is up for anything, even my crazy adventure of wanting to take pictures with her beautiful Longhorns! Overall it was amazing and so much fun!
— Autumn

Their white cake, topped with and surrounded by white roses and the loveliest greenery, matched their other details so perfectly - it was simple, rustic and totally stunning. We sat it atop an old whiskey barrel, and of course we added more longhorn details! Gosh, this cake display was so pretty.

The newlyweds shared their first dance as husband and wife inside The Barn, just the two of them, and it was incredibly romantic under the chandeliers and sparkling lights. This is one reason why elopements are the best! SO insanely romantic.

Autumn and Tanner, we LOVED your wedding. We are so glad you made the trip to The Barn to tie the knot! We’ll never forget your gorgeous wedding details! Best wishes and congrats! xoxo

Meagan + Trevor's Glamorous, Romantic Purple Fall Wedding

Are we dreaming, or did this wedding really happen?! 'Cause it was seriously MAGICAL... someone pinch us! Every detail was absolutely over-the-top and completely gorgeous, from the stunning ceremony details to the fabulous bridal gown and bridesmaids' dresses and every. single. detail. in between! Plus, Meagan was THE happiest bride ever. She is probably The Barn's biggest fan and we LOVE her. 

A wedding this fabulous doesn't happen without a host of amazing vendors, and here are the ones Meagan and Trevor chose for their big day!

Meagan and Trevor were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on October 20, 2017. Their color palette was a beautiful, elegant combination of gray, silver, and pops of fall-toned purples. They chose an aviation theme because of where they both work and the fact that they met on an airplane while working, but they wanted the theme very subtly worked into their details. Their wedding was glamorous and romantic, and the subtle aviation-themed details made it totally unique and all their own. 

23783713_2107602715920375_7667739789725110445_o.jpg

There are a TON of amazing details from this wedding that we've got to cover (they were all SO good, I can't leave anything out!), but first up, let's talk about what these beautiful people wore! Meagan's David Tutera bridal gown and Carolina Herrera veil were absolutely exquisite. The illusion neckline and lace details on her dress were insaaaaane, y'all. STUNNING doesn't even begin to cover it. And her veil was one of the prettiest we've ever seen! This bridal look will never go out of style, and it was perfectly accented by the bridesmaids' glamorous, sequined Donna Morgan dresses (one of our fave details!).

23736187_2107604642586849_8273320713798621835_o.jpg

See what I mean?! Happiest bride ever!

23632597_2107606189253361_1047786270274841198_o.jpg

Trevor and his groomsmen wore classic black Calvin Klein tuxes (this bride and groom have great taste!), and they looked pretty much straight out of a bridal magazine. Groom goals right here, y'all! Trevor's groomsmaid wore a gorgeous Adrianna Papell dress.

Meagan’s purple florals were stunning, and the addition of darker shades kept them totally fall appropriate. "The flowers in general were extraordinary," she said. "They were magnificent. The flow from almost black purple to violet to a blush tone was breathtakingly perfect. The bouquets were absolutely exquisite! My aunt reached out to touch a flower at the reception and exclaimed, 'These are real?!?' She was completely awe-struck."

Meagan and Trevor's ceremony details were out of this world, and in my opinion, this was one of the most elegant ceremonies we've ever done! I cannot get over their altar, with its elegant draping, gorgeous greenery, and fabulous purple florals! To top it off, they had a gorgeous petal design down their aisle, as well as purple floral arrangements and lanterns. 

One of Meagan's favorite things about getting married at The Barn was "the perfect blend of the country, rustic, rural venue with the chandeliers, draping, sequins, opulence, glamorous decor, romantic twinkle lights, and our beautiful guests all dressed to the nines in black-tie optional attire; it was a perfect blend of who we are as people," she said. "Country & classy. A little farm, a little city." LOVE!

23738005_2107607032586610_5976419634651430966_o.jpg

"I know every bride probably thinks their wedding was the best one to ever take place at The Barn," Meagan said. "But y'all, TRULY! They not only completely out did themselves; the level to which they surpassed my expectations was immeasurable. I was overwhelmed by the elegance, the drama, and the luster. Trevor admitted to me after the wedding that he never had the vision to understand how it would look fully decorated & put together. He told me that he was impressed to a level of speechlessness on our wedding day. He was completely shocked at how gorgeous it turned out. And he's deeply thankful to the entire staff, especially Lesleigh and Victoria."

During our year-long planning process, I sincerely felt like I was the only wedding they were planning. There were many times that I questioned how on earth they could plan and execute so many fabulous weddings. Because I literally felt like I was their only priority! But they do it. Week in and week out. Every wedding has top priority!! Every bride is indeed special. They take their incredibly important job with the utmost seriousness.
— Meagan

Aren't y'all dying over this dress?!

23668963_2107597679254212_974631770667627748_o.jpg

These portraits of Meagan and Trevor in their first few moments as newlyweds are absolutely beautiful, romantic and perfect. Their excitement and pure JOY are so obvious in these photos! All the love <3

"I'll never forget the moment when Trevor and I went to the back side of The Barn to see the inside before our guests," Meagan said. "They stood us outside the sliding doors and asked if we were ready. When they slid the doors open to reveal the inside in such a way, we both felt like we were on a tv show! It was so enchanting that I screamed!! All of our guests at cocktail hour heard my exclamation of excitement! The Barn completely stole our breath! We both slowly moved throughout the reception area, taking it all in. My heart felt so full, I thought it might explode! As I got closer to the dance floor, with What a Wonderful World playing, Trevor grabbed my hand & said, 'I know this isn't supposed to be our first dance, but it's going to be...' It was so incredibly sweet & romantic! I'll never forget having that private moment with my new husband surrounded by such spectacular loveliness."

We spy Meagan's pretty "something blue" shoes! Fun fact: she did the whole "something old, blue, borrowed and blue" tradition, AND she even wore a sixpence in her shoe! 

23668920_2107604899253490_7019080554891426029_o.jpg
23737578_2107600269253953_6474527459428748640_o.jpg

The fabulous, romantic, glamorous details continued into The Barn for Meagan and Trevor's reception. Just a few of the details I'm absolutely in love with: the gorgeous place settings, purple hues, romantic florals, SEQUINS (swoon!), and that insane draping, which automatically makes The Barn a hundred times more magical and dreamy!  

"I know it's a bit cliche to say this, but I'm not sure I can pick a favorite detail, because there were SO many details!” Meagan said.  “From honoring Trevor's dad who passed away earlier this year to the leaves magically falling during our ceremony to the stellar service provided by the staff to our scrumptious and beautiful cake of 4 different flavors, to the incredible dance party provided by our DJ! It was all phenomenal!! My favorite thing about getting married at The Barn was Lesleigh and Victoria. I'm a Type A personality with attention to detail. So I know I probably drove both Victoria and Lesleigh up a wall with my questions and instructions. They couldn't have been more gracious and incredible throughout the process. The fact that they handled practically everything was a huge stress reliever for me. And the relationship we developed created an unbridled trust. I was at complete ease putting the most important day of my life in their hands.”

23632413_2107605519253428_1687610715045656153_o.jpg

It's pretty much our favorite thing ever when our couples use their details to tell a little bit of their love story. That's why we LOVED Meagan and Trevor's aviation theme. "Trevor and I both work for a major airline, and that's how we met," Meagan said. "So we had subtle hints of travel and airplanes throughout the day. Our escort cards were tiny paper airplanes pointing at a beautiful globe. The tables were named for places Trevor and I have visited, accompanied by a black and white photo of us in that location. The favors also reflected our aviation connection." Their favors were small metal bottle openers that were shaped like airplanes... adorable!

Meagan and Trevor have impeccable taste, so they chose a design for their cake that was elegant, unique and beautiful. I LOVE this cake. It was a (mostly) classic, simple white cake with one gray and black ombre layer and tons of beautiful purple florals.

Meagan and Trevor's reception was one big, amazing party with their guests, who came all the way from Texas (and all across the country) to be here for their big day! "At the reception our guests kept coming up to me repeating the same things. 'We understand now why you made us come this far. It was the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen. It was perfect. It was stunning.' But the one thing I heard the most; 'It was magical.' And it was. Pure magic," Meagan said.

Meagan and Trevor went on an incredibly romantic, EPIC Italian honeymoon. "We were gone for 10 days," she said. "It was very busy! We saw Rome, Florence, the Tuscan countryside, Pisa, and Cinque Terre!"

Finally, Meagan had the sweetest things to say about our team when I asked her for some feedback on her planning process and her wedding day. "It was purely MAGICAL," she said. "I was floored by how perfectly everything was executed. Everything flowed without me having to worry. Victoria was on top of order and timing and detail. I keep saying, I wish I could hit rewind and do it all again! My heart is so full from our special day. I still get teary just thinking about it. And I owe it all to the good Lord above and the place where dreams come true and magic happens... The Barn At Twin Oaks Ranch."

As if Meagan hasn't already completely blown us away with her kind words, here is the super sweet, heart melting review she left us on Facebook. Meagan, please be our BFF! 

Meagan and Trevor, your wedding was one we will never forget! It was EVERYTHING, and you two are such a special couple! We are so, so, soooo thankful you came all the way from Texas to say your I do's at The Barn! Best wishes! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
