Katherine and Hunter had the most perfect wedding day! They felt so loved and lucky to have family and friends surrounding them on such a special day.
The evening began with an outdoor ceremony, with Katherine escorted down the aisle by both her mother and father. The ceremony was followed by fun and festivities in The Barn.
Katherine's dress was an ivory A-line ballgown adorned with floral lace. The dress was complimented by a hand-made sash and a lace-trimmed fingertip veil.
A special shout-out to the family that helped set up, decorate, and break down everything at the end of the night. Katherine and Hunter are so blessed to have each and every one of you in their lives!
It was a cloudy day, with the sun peeking out at times during the day. There was a little rain right before the ceremony, but it stopped in time for the seats to be wiped off. It turned out to be a gorgeous evening!
Number of Guests
150 family members, friends and coworkers.
We are so grateful to all who shared in the celebration, and a special thank you to those who traveled from as far away as Louisiana, Florida, Illinois, Washington and even Finland!
Theme: Burlap, Lace, Vintage.
Colors: Aqua blues and a touch of coral
Tons of DIY projects including the napkin rings, wooden centerpieces, bar tables, etc. Thank you to the bride's wonderful parents who spent so much of their time making everything perfect! : )
The bride carried a rounded garden bouquet filled with ranunculi, roses, and hydrangeas in shades of coral, blush and white.
The bridesmaids carried white and green hydrangea bouquets. The flowergirls carried miniature baby's breath bouquets.
Corsages and boutonnières were a combination of ranunculi and sweetheart roses.
Scattered throughout the wedding and reception were picturesque live plant arrangements.
Awaiting Katherine and Hunter at the end of their sparkler exit was a Vintage Firetruck! This added a unique and special touch to the night!
The couple enjoyed their fun first dance to Jon Pardi's "Head Over Boots." They met the country artist two weekends after tying the knot!
During the cocktail hour, guests were encouraged to grab a bite to eat from the Thoroughfare Food Truck window: Chicken Quesadillas and Potato Leek Soup were offered. For dinner, farm tables were loaded with some of Thoroughfare's specialties: Crudités with Ranch and Hummus, Mesclun Salad with Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette, a Tater Tot Station with Assorted Toppings, and Panko-Crusted Chicken Breasts with Lime Aioli Sauce. Delicious!
The couple cut into a beautiful two-tiered cake, with the top tier being Red Velvet and the bottom, Strawberry Lemonade. The Strawberry Lemonade cake was delicious, as the bride and groom discovered when they smashed it into each other's faces. ; ) In addition to the cake, guests enjoyed their choice of a variety of scrumptious cupcakes: Red Velvet, Caramel Praline, Chocolate Chocolate, and White Chocolate Almond Raspberry-filled.
The favors were personalized wildflower seed packets.

If You Knew Then What You Know Now...
Words of wisdom from the bride: "Make sure to each carve out about 30 minutes before the craziness of your day begins. I sat in the bridal suite at the venue, hair and make up done, for that half hour. I was so thankful for the peace it brought me before all of my lovely maids got there. It was so worth it to have those few moments alone to relax, reflect, pray, and get ready for the best celebration!"
