Seriously Pretty Bohemian Barn Wedding: Sara & Jeremy

Their budget was only $7000, but that didn’t stop Sara and Jeremy organising one of the most gorgeous barn weddings I’ve ever seen! “The most unique part of our wedding is how many people came together to help create all the details”, said the bride. “So many wonderful friends helped make things from decorations, DJ, photographer, cakes, and even marquee, to really give our wedding a handmade feel.”


“The groom’s band performed the father-daughter dance. Most weddings people want to detach from the wedding details and have other people make and do the stuff. We wanted to be creative and intimate with all of our wedding planning. I think this really made our wedding day feel authentic and comfortable. People enjoyed looking at what they helped with and being a part of our big day.”


“Our theme was bohemian and home grown. My friends and I made all the hanging banners, hand sewed fabric for the alter, succulent centerpieces and painted picture frames. We organized all the flowers in old bottles, the marquee sign, and we all did our own hair and make up. We decorated the whole barn the day before with the help of family and friends. Many things were handmade, reused, thrifted, or borrowed.”


“Our biggest expenses were catering and the venue”, she continued. “We really wanted a secluded outdoor spot for the wedding and reception and we wanted to have awesome down-home country food. Both turned out to be more than amazing. We also got GOOD beer. That was a must.”


“Our advice to other couples would be to remember everyone is there for you”, she concluded. “Take a second to breath and enjoy your day. At one point of the night i sat down outside the barn, looking in at everyone inside and took a second to watch everyone smiling and dancing and embedded that image into my brain. I was so happy and so was everyone else. It was an amazing group of our closest family and friends and by far the best, and most memorable day of our lives.”
