If you want a wedding that reflects your bold personality, red is the color for you. Pair red with camel and white for a country or backyard wedding feel. Red is a statement color that will be sure to make your wedding stand out among the rest. Not feeling the country theme? Use red for a rich and royal wedding. Red roses in your bouquet and red centerpieces will help create this theme. Red bridesmaids’ dresses will create a strong and vibrant contrast to the brides’, and red bow ties on groomsmen are a cute way to incorporate the shade. After all, red is the color of love!
A simple idea for seating your guests during your ceremony would be to set up rows of benches instead of chairs. These benches (or pews) are so incredibly simple consisting of only essentially a board of wood. The bench gets simpler and infinitely more rustic with the idea of using a barrel of hay! The benches can add a familiar wedding feeling for your guests reminding them of an old church wedding no matter what the location, inside or out!
Just because you are hosting an outdoor wedding does not mean that you can’t give your guests (as well as yourself!) a grand entrance. Doorways placed at the entrance of your outdoor venue give the area a sense of importance and is a chic way of symbolizing your new beginnings and exciting new married life! The doorway can also give your guests a grand entrance to your ceremony. These doors don’t have to be expensive; in fact, they look beautiful when they’re a cheap vintage find. Walk through this beautiful doorway towards your handsome fiancé and walk out of the doorway as husband and wife!
Now here are all of the lovely details of Kalli & George’s wedding! Kalli’s family (+ George!) built this barn from the ground up on their property in West Texas. Can you even imagine looking at an open field when you get engaged, and seeing this amazing venue when you walk down the aisle? The Bride’s family has collected antiques their entire lives and it’s obvious that they have some serious decorating skills. There are so many incredible features I honestly can’t pick a favorite. I will tell you that I love the fireplace with suitcases stacked underneath, the wall of gold-framed mirrors, the chairs labeled Bride & Groom, and the incredible chandeliers hanging from the beams (how many can you spot?). But most of all, I love the giant banner with one of Kalli and George’s favorite verse- Psalm 118:24. Thank you so much Jillian Zamora for sharing this incredible wedding built by hand in West Texas!
The first picture that caught my eye was this darling couple’s invitations. They paint Nashville in the warmest light and I just want to get in my car and drive all night till I get there. But the picture that sealed the deal for me? Now of course that’s the one of the groom holding a rifle, and the bride hiking up her dress to show off her boots. That is my kind of couple, and I know they would fit right in in Texas. Don’t miss all the lovely details of this wedding- especially the church atmosphere they created outdoors with pews for seating.
