Wedding Photos: The Details

November 18th, 2012
Talon Winery - Lexington, KY
When planning our wedding, Kevin and I both knew we wanted to focus on a laid back country-chic/rustic atmosphere with our closest friends and family. We both loved the idea of getting married in a barn. We wanted our wedding day to be full of southern charm and homemade character. The Ca”barn”et Barrel Barn at Talon Winery had that perfect “down home” feel for the backdrop of our big day.

Some of my most favorite deatils of our wedding day were......

My mother’s homemade dessert bar was the perfect complement to our wedding cake and groom’s pies. It as such a hit at our reception. We had mini to-go bags so that guests could load up with goodies to take with them. My mom also handmade our wedding favors – her apple butter in mini jelly jars wrapped in burlap and jute. She also made the ring bearer burlap pillow and flower girl/program baskets.  Kevin was so hands on in wedding planning too, there with me every step of the way for all the DIY projects. He did all the calligraphy for our wedding invites, designed our programs, made the labels for our favors ,and Kevin and his dad made the wooden wedding signs we used around the winery. We cut the cake with my mother and father's wedding cake serving set used at their wedding. My mom had it engraved with our names and  my dad's birthday our wedding date underneath theirs. (It's a lonnnnng, but funny story). She also wrapped them in jute to make them fit right in with our cake table. The homespun details meant the world to me. 

Our centerpieces were different combinations of burlap, succulents, jute, mason jars, tree trunk stands, hydrangeas, candles, rustic books and frames, white and tea stained roses on top of white tablecloths with a burlap overlay. The florist/design go to guy, Stuart from HOUSE by JSD, truly out did himself. I will never forget walking into the barn the first time, and being blown away by how romantic and fabulous it was.

Here are some photos of some of the small details of the day that I just adore. Hope you enjoy!

Fantastic photos, Whitney! Great photography makes the wedding more significant, especially when you're already narrating your love story to your kids. I can see that your photographer did a great job in capturing your wedding. Did you get a professional photographer or did you have a family member take them all? :)
