{ Rustic Style Barn Wedding Venue & Ideas }

Hey everyone!!! Sorry I've been a little MIA these past few days'! I usually blog 3-4 times a week, but honestly this last week has been so busy my head was spinning..We ended this crazy week with an awesome little 2 day getaway for our nieces wedding in Rockford, MI at the gorgeously famous +Hydrangea Blu Barn !  So we were already excited to get away & enjoy some couple time, hotel, exploring/end of summer & of course the stunning venue! When we pulled in we were greeted by the most pristine landscaping, green pastures { & ponies }, charming barn & that's just the beginning!!!  The barn itself is so rustic & vintage with the most stunning wide plank wood floors, huge iron chandeliers & adorable string lights leading outside to the barn patio & gorgeous hydrangea landscaped gardens! Come take a peek at our weekend & gather some rustic wedding ideas! The link to the barn venue will be below if you're interested in renting the barn for your next special occasion!

Emilee the bride & our niece literally thought of everything in terms of a rustic & cozy style wedding! I mean how cute are these little "grow" packets as favors for guest? The charming details that went into this wedding were stunning, yet so simple & minimalist!


S e a t i n g

This probably was my most favorite part!! I mean cards can become boring & traditional..Using simple sticks with some beautiful writing paired with little galvanized pots of white dainty flowers?! GENIUS!

So keeping with the rustic style of the wedding were coordinated handmade wood signs with simple white calligraphy! I love that they gave the wedding a finished look, but still with that cozy rustic appeal you guys know I crave hehe!

I love that they had different flavored cupcakes & used old crates to hold & display them. Cute, rustic & simple!

The decor was so simple, vintagey & cozy! Some simple greenery, country style hydrangea bouquets, galvanized pots & wood crates were all that was needed to accentuate this venue.


The simple deconstructed style cake was amazing! Using a huge wood slice the creamy white cake was topped with some rustic style flowers & voila!

 


I'll take one of those for my dining room please!!! ;)


** This was the only ceremony picture I quickly snapped out of respect & wishes from the bride / groom not to photograph or film via phone etc.. 

Side Note: The ceremony was held out in the pasture under a gorgeous mature tree & crisp white pergola!


You guysssss how stunning are these HUGE barrels of flowers?? I wanted to grab them & stick them in our jeep & run hahaha!


The barn was packed with the neatest treasures! I may have wanted to take some signs, tables, wood & basically the whole place .. hahah! 




The head table was lined with  fresh whimsical greenery, colorful hydrangeas & these huge glass mason jars from +Target  with simple white candles! Breathtaking! 


Keeping with the theme of the head table the guest tables were stacked with a huge mason in the center with the most gorgeous bouquets!


I really hope this wedding gives others ideas on how to create the most simple, but stunning cozy rustic wedding! Be sure to check out the barn if you're in Michigan & looking for a natural & serene venue --> http://www.hydrangeablubarn.com/
