A Rustic Barn Wedding at Rivercrest Farm

Looking to get married in a barn setting near Ohio? Today’s barn wedding at Rivercrest Farm provides inspiration for a unique rustic wedding with a touch of elegance. A bride and her bridesmaids in cowboy boots provide the rustic vibe, while a brilliant chandelier hanging from the barn roof rafters lights up the barn space interior to provide an elegant appeal.

We love the light pink and blue color scheme that Stacey and Jeremiah chose for their fun looking wedding. Congrats!  KariMe Photography was behind the lens to capture the great photos below.

Remarks from the photographer: “As we pulled up to the venue it was a beautiful farm with horses, goats, roosters, pigs, and donkeys. Sitting on the edge of Rivercrest Farm was a beautiful 100 year old barn that had been restored for weddings!

“I new the day would be beautiful from the start. Stacey was beaming ear to ear and Jeremiah couldn’t wait to see his Bride. They shared a sweet first look with lots of tears. The bridesmaids wore blush dresses and adorable cowgirl boots. The bride herself had some blue cowgirls boots on for her something blue. The guys wore tan suit pants and light blue shirts.

“The ceremony and reception took place inside the barn. It had chandeliers hanging and beautiful table settings. The day couldn’t have been better.”

Which pieces of music did you use during the Ceremony?

“We hired a string quartet. They picked a lot of the entrance music, but I walked down the aisle to a throws and years, which really got to me emotionally, which is why I picked it. I let the band pick the other music of what was most picked or sounded best in their opinion.”

“Don’t sweat the small stuff. All of the details of the day are just that, details. At the end of the day you’re getting married to the one you love most and that’s all that matters.
