If you’ve got a vision for a romantic boho fete for your wedding, you will love this barn wedding from Captured by Kelly Photography! The fresh orange and champagne color palette is perfection and so are the boho details (hello macrame bouquet wrap!) And how perfect is the whiskey barrel ring escort card display handmade by the groom?
Our vision was to bring two general styles together. We are definitely not country club or winery people so a venue just felt right. Jesse grew up on a family farm and so the barn we chose that featured tools on the walls for the reception and back drop just felt like him. Sarah moved around a lot as a kid and is more into the boho style so that came in through the decorations. We both love the outdoors as well so having an outdoor wedding was important. We really wanted to have both of us present as we began our journey together as husband and wife.
On the bridal bouquet, we tied on both maternal grandmother’s rings as the something old. The wedding dress was the something new while the seamstress had sewed in a blue bow into the dress for the something blue. The something borrowed was Sarah’s mom’s diamond earrings that she wore. Jesse wore his maternal grandfather’s watch and his favorite gold necklaces.
For Jesse, his favorite memory is seeing his bride walk down the aisle. We both tend to be very emotional people and the whole ceremony matched that entirely since one of our closest friends, Brandyn, was our officiant. It was a really beautifully planned ceremony. For Sarah, seeing her groom as she rounded the corner down the aisle (he looked so freaking handsome!) – but also getting a chance to have fun with our friends and family and enjoy everything we had planned with them to celebrate our marriage.
Jesse loves to make things and fix things so he was recruited to make the copper pipe frame behind our sweetheart table. He also made the geometric table numbers using a 3D printer he recently fixed up. All of the signs were DIY and so was the seating chart using whiskey barrel rings they had mounted on the wall at the barn. A lot of DIY mixed with our own spin on things to make it fit us better. We also collected bottles for the centerpieces that featured some our favorite sodas like Barq’s root beer, coke, whiskeys, etc. We utilized picture frames to display our engagement photos and some of our other favorites on a ledge all around the barn.
We also had a cookie table where people contributed different cookies – new recipes and family recipes. For favors, Sarah’s mom makes incredible royal icing cookies and she made and individually bagged cookies as our favors with a gold letter “D” with designs around it to match the wedding. They are beautiful and taste amazing! We were really happy with how they turned out as a treat for everyone.

You will love this simple and sweet New Hampshire lakeside wedding from Lynne Reznick Photography! With flowers picked right from the bride’s parent’s garden, this wedding is filled with sentimental details and love.
Anne had a vision of simplicity and elegance, one that became a reality with the help of her family and friends. We used our favorite colors which accented each other well, and her favorite flower which was in bloom PERFECTLY, just for our wedding. Grace Church was Anne’s church growing up and the “mother church” for our current church. It carried many memories and gave a comfort and familiar safety to our day. Camp Spofford was somewhere we had both worked at different points in our lives, somewhere with fond memories for us both and a beautiful setting that fit our vision.
As two Christians seeking to put our faith first in all things, including our marriage, we planned a ceremony that reflected that. I remember saying “when the guests leave I want the first thing they say when they get in the car is ‘wow, Anne and Asher love Jesus.’” It was very important to us that we gave credit to God who made us who we are and brought us together, as well as expressing the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who attended.
For our flowers we chose lilacs- Anne’s favorite flower- and were able to get most of them from bushes on Anne’s parents’ property. We were grateful that they bloomed late this year- perfectly in time for the wedding! They were cut and arranged by Emma Sanctuary, one of the maids of honor who works as a florist at The Village Blooms, where we sourced the remainder of our flowers. In keeping with our alternative, gospel-centered theme, we elected to forgo traditional favors and instead substituted it with a selection of benevolent giving opportunities in which our guests would deposit a wooden heart chip from each table to a basket assigned to its respective charitable organization. We chose five organizations that impacted our lives.
With neither of us being fanatics for the traditional wedding cake, we went with a contemporary cheesecake selection (masterfully crafted by Kierra Speed, one of the bridesmaids), with gluten free options of fruit and cheeses.

It’s all Gilded Age romance in this moody and elegant mansion wedding shoot from Jenn Marie Photography! We are in love with the trailing bouquet, vintage chic stationery, and pearl draped ceremony. But it’s the cake that is giving us all the heart eyes! Those sugar flower peonies are perfection!
We were inspired by the Belle Epoque/Gilded Age in history. We wanted the shoot to have an heirloom feel, pulling in as many vintage details as we could find that had the floral and old-school elegance theme that we were looking for. From the vintage champagne glasses to the custom made beaded and crocheted wedding gown, the blend of vintage and modern turned out so beautiful and achievable for any couple to easily draw inspiration from and create their own heirloom wedding. Many aspects of this shoot were brought by our planner and designer, Dara of Bespoke and Beloved. The china, cutlery, and glassware were all personal family heirlooms that really helped elevate our vintage feel!
