Rustic Outdoor Barn Wedding Alongside a Lake

Today, we are soaking in the beauty of this serene wedding venue. If you enjoy fresh air, sunshine, and a wedding in the country, this chic barn wedding will make your heart melt. Kelli and Brent had no worried faces as the skies turned a little grey, nor when it started to rain during Brent and Kelli’s first look. These two knew how to throw a luxurious party for all of their sweet guests!

From the pewter bridesmaid dresses, metallic golden wedding cake, navy blue suits, and chic lace wedding dress, we love the delicate details of this special day. The outdoor tent made the reception space looks warm and cozy, despite a bit of gloomy weather. The white and peach colored flowers paired with small pieces of drift wood made this space as rustic as it was romantic!

Rustic Pink Outdoor Farm Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are elated to be sharing this classic southern-style wedding! Brooke and Steven were married on a stunning 50-acre family farm out in South Carolina. Their sweet ceremony took place alongside a serene lake, and was then accompanied by some hilarious wedding photos of the bride and groom. This rustic farm wedding is too much fun! Did we mention they even have a horse and buggy?

Steven and Brooke wanted a fun and casual atmosphere for their big day. They made sure to have some delicious home-cooked BBQ at their reception, as well as some rustic decor pieces. Brooke was most inspired by blush and gold colors, which are perfect for the summertime. Vibrant pink peonies were seen in every bouquet, and paired with whimsical bridesmaid dresses. The dance floor was a big hit that night and everyone danced to an array of great tunes, from Forever Young to Uptown Funk! These two lovebirds will be headed to Central America for their amazing honeymoon.

Blue and White Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are beaming with delight over this charming, rustic wedding! From the iconic Spanish Moss that grows on these timeless trees, the old wooden venue, and stunning twinkly lights strung up during the evening, we are smitten with the details Michelle and Peter picked for their big day.

These two first met, and fell in love, in dreamy Charleston. However, their sweet engagement didn’t take place in the states. During Easter Sunday while they were in England visiting Peter’s family, he took Michelle to a fun zoo in London. After nervously making laps around the park, Michelle finally asked him what he was doing? In order not to ruin his big surprise, he quickly dropped to one knee, and asked if she’d be his wife!

Peter and Michelle’s wedding day happened at Magnolia Plantation!The beautiful array of white flower bouquets, rustic blue and white reception decorations, and fun fire pit for roasting their sweet treats, all helped make this day a memorable event.

Need to give your venue a warm glow? Arrange various-sized tree stumps in a large open space and place glass candle vases on top. The flickering light and warm neutrals will create a romantic atmosphere that’s inviting, and not to mention, perfect for a rustic theme! Pick any size candles you desire! An array of tealight candles scattered about, will also make a luxurious statement.

Not big on frosting? Try a naked cake! Not only are these sweet treats adorable and perfect for a rustic wedding theme, they are often less expensive. Without a baker needing to spend hours creating the perfect masterpiece with delicate pieces of fondant, there is usually less labor involved with this style of cake.

Timeless Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this ultra chic outdoor wedding with you all. Ali and Ryan were together for 9 years before Ryan proposed! These lovebirds were married in a traditional Catholic church, and then headed over to a rustic Plantation for their reception party.

From their Celtic Folk-Rock songs, little black dog, and rustic white naked cake, we are enamored with all of their fun wedding picks. The neutral colors make this wedding theme work for any season! Hundreds of white and peach-colored roses were used throughout their big day in South Carolina, which helped create a warm, intimate atmosphere for all of their guests. We love their fun twists on a traditional wedding theme.
