This rustic barn wedding is an effortless beauty! We love the inviting earthy tones and the relaxed feel of this wedding. Speaking of relaxed, this bride wears her hair down with mermaid waves that’s just gorgeous. The pretty doesn’t stop there, check out the keyhole back wedding gown and the bridesmaids in short white dresses.

The Bradford Ranch in El Cajon, CA is the perfect backdrop for this styled shoot, with its tall trees, overgrown cacti, hilltop views, and free roaming horses! We’re loving the casual wedding attire with the knee length tiered tulle dress paired with the baby’s breath flower crown and soft florals. This setting and these photos by John DeFiora Photography cannot get any prettier!

From their Photographer: This was a beautifully rustic venue outside of San Diego. The owner has 3 horses that roam around the property and a guest house for the couple. The landscape is amazing and the perfect setting for pictures, and we only explored a tiny part of it, that’s the best part. Not to mention you feel at home when you are there.
Megan and David wanted their wedding to be simple, rustic, and handmade, with a personal touch that reflected the two of them. They had pine cones on the tables and invites because Megan is from Southern Pines. She also loves to crochet and made the pom-pom flowers for centerpieces and boutonnieres, and the wedding favors were honey from the groom’s sister and husband’s honey bee farm. We love how it all came together at this rustic barn setting!

From the Bride:
We met at NC State in 2004 when I was a freshman and David was a senior. David graduated the next year and moved to Charlotte and we lost touch. Fast forward to 2008, I graduated and moved to Charlotte. Thanks to Facebook we reconnected when we found out we were in the same city. We eventually went on a coffee date but nothing really happened from there. Over the next year we ran into each other a lot – at concerts, at the park and even while on dates with other people. We finally started talking regularly and planned to meet at a concert that happened to be the night my niece was born so I missed the concert. A couple months later he asked me out and we had a real date after years of knowing each other. From that day in August 2011 we were inseparable! The following year we got engaged (he proposed in front of the Christmas tree with the engagement ring inside an ornament!) and the next year we were married! Together we love doing home improvement projects, snowboarding, relaxing on the couch, and playing with our new puppy!
Can you tell us more about the style of your wedding?
The style we were going for was a simple, rustic, handmade wedding. I wanted the decor and details to have a personal touch that reflected both of us. I grew up in Southern Pines, NC (the land of the pines), so we incorporated pinecones in the centerpieces, invitations and paper goods. I love to crochet and was excited to incorporate yarn in our decor by making yarn pom-pom flowers for the centerpieces and boutonnières and crocheting our cake topper. David’s sister and her husband have a honey bee farm and we had their honey as wedding favors. Our wedding had a lot of handmade aspects and much of the decor was items we collected over the years.
Can you share something we wouldn’t know from looking at your photos?
My favorite moment was our “first look”. I was so nervous all day until that moment we saw each other. We also exchanged gifts during that time. David got me a heart shaped jewelry box with a sweet message engraved in the top and a monogrammed necklace with our names and wedding date. I loved these thoughtful gifts that I will be able to treasure for years to come!
This Indiana Barn Wedding shot by Taylor Whitham Photography is filled with so many cute handmade details. The bride’s father provided the wine for the wedding made from his vineyard, which was a big hit. We’re loving all the pretty details like the lanterns and fairy lights, and the hanging mason jars over the bridal table.

From their Photographer: Amanda and Dustin were married this April on a brisk Saturday afternoon. Amanda made or ordered from small handmade vendors a lot of the adorable details to make her wedding day special. This wedding was styled beautifully and fit the rustic barn venue perfectly. Her father made homemade wine from his vineyard for the occasion and the consensus was it was absolutely delicious and unique! The homemade wine was labeled with some of the couple’s favorite engagement photos. What a perfect day for a perfect couple.
