Calling all bohemian brides! Get ready for some serious eye-candy. Katlyn and Steven’s forest wedding was bursting with sunshine and spirit. Throughout the day, guests explored a babbling brook, a wooded grove of trees, and a rustic country barn. Golden sunflowers brought a bright and cheery look to the decor that practically screamed summer. Read on and learn how to capture that carefree feeling of the great outdoors in your ‘I do’s!
Katlyn’s windblown waves stole the show in her bridal look. A delicate flower crown encircled her forehead, complementing the 70’s style lace dress. As a unique accessory, she paired the gown with an ethereal lace hooded cape. Steven opted for dark denim jeans and a tweed vest for his wedding outfit. He even sported a chained pocked watch for a special offbeat touch!
The bridesmaids did a wonderful job selecting their mix and match sun dresses. Sporting prints from bright bell peppers to vintage floral toile, they managed to look cohesive while also expressing their own styles. Hues of yellow connected the looks with matching sunflower bouquets. For the groomsmen, it was jeans, suspenders, and delicate boutonnieres all around. Different washes of denim kept the look modern and relaxed.
A white horse-drawn carriage whisked Katlyn off to the ceremony. To escort his daughter down the aisle, the father-of-the-bride wore his Air Cavalry dress uniform which included a Stetson! Thanks to the site’s natural beauty, little decoration was needed to make the space feel special. Friends and family looked on as the happy couple said their vows amidst a copse of trees and rows of sunflowers.
The celebration continued during the reception, set in a barn covered in festive string lights. Windows overlooked the farm while guests showed off their skills on the dance floor inside. Katlyn and Steven sliced into their simple two-tiered cake. Its fondant was decorated to look like birch bark and fresh wildflowers embellished the layers. A live band kept the energy going late into the evening, ensuring that everyone had the time of their lives!
