I adore true to the bone rustic weddings & if anyone was to ask me why, I would gladly redirect them to this beautiful wedding of Kate & Matthew. The location – a farm was scenic in all it’s simplicity. The matching barn was perfect to have the photo shoots in since the light was dramatic and the elements such as the weathered out planks and hays created a unique contrast to the elegantly dressed couple. Who would’ve thought that hay barns are a good option for photo sessions? Then for the decors, they mostly embraced the homey aura of the venue by making use of quilts, burlaps, mason jars, etc. It truly was an intimate but a special rustic wedding. Congratulations Kate and Matthew!
Kate and Matthew come from two different worlds. Kate was born and raised near Boston and Matthew is a farmer from Tennessee. They are literally the cutest. They are the sort of couple that need very little direction when being photograph because they just melt when they see each other. I honestly don’t think I have had a more outwardly excited bride than Kate. She giggled and squealed all morning. Katelyn and Matthew decided that they wanted to have a small intimate ceremony in the late morning with 25 people. That afternoon the venue added tables and 150 people arrive on a party bus to enjoy a laid back casual reception complete with shot glasses and cornhole. They wanted to show Kate’s New England family a down on the farm/great time in the hills of Tennessee, a rustic country wedding, with some more “city” elements. It was the perfect combination of her country husband and her northern ways.Matthew and Kate eventually changed into plain clothes. It was a great example of how you could have a fabulous event that isn’t stuffy or high budget.
