For some reason we’ve been dreaming of the country lately, and this Newland Barn wedding is definitely tugging on our heartstrings! We just love Rachel’s high-low dress with her cowboy boots, and all the little rustic details that she handcrafted.
From the photographer: “Rachel & Roger shared their special day with close friends and family. They had a country/cowboy flair to their wedding and their ceremony & reception could not have been more perfect at the Newland Barn. Rachel’s shoes for the day were cowboy boots, as well as her bridesmaids. Special details were created by Rachel herself, the favors were little jars of honey, the centerpieces were beautifully arranged in mason jars and placed on stumps of wood that they had cut themselves. In front of their cupcake display Rachel had made a “Love” sign that was also incorporated in their engagement photos. Special touches throughout the day made their wedding very personal and unforgettable.”
