It’s all rustic elegance with this Florida barn wedding from Jessica Connery Photography. I love their darling sweetheart table set up! And the tree planting ceremony is one of my favorite ceremony ideas in lieu of unity candles.
We really wanted to find that perfect venue with oak trees and a big barn. I was losing hope on finding that perfect venue then I found Up the Creek Farms. I was ready to book as soon as I saw the pictures. It had everything we wanted the old Florida farmhouse, big beautiful oak trees, and the perfect barn.
I wore my great grandmother’s diamond earrings and necklace.
I think our favorite part was our ceremony. It is every bride’s worst nightmare pouring down rain all morning until right before the ceremony it cleared up, the sun came out, and we were able to say I Do under the beautiful oak trees in front of our family and friends. I was so upset because the rain made us change so many plans but that all changed as soon as I started to walk down the aisle I instantly was the happiest I’d ever been.
The most important thing to us was just staying true to our style and sticking to a budget as best as we could.
When it came to colors I was in love with the pale pink, peach, and blues. I had my heart set on those colors but I felt like it was perfect for a spring wedding and we were getting married in November. That’s when I decided to add navy which I felt made it look more elegant. Which was part of our style we were wanting an elegant country wedding. I felt like the flowers, candles, chandeliers, and fabric draping made it look elegant and the cowboy boots, hay bales, mason jars, and wooden crates added the country style.
My maid of honor made the ceremony program on a chalkboard sign and also a drink menu sign for the bar. A family member made the ring bearer pillow and I made the flower girl baskets. Also for our Unity ceremony we planted a tree to then later plant on our property.
