Oklahoma Barnyard Wedding

When Gene of Geneoh Photography sent this wedding our way, our hearts melted just a bit. Not only because we’re suckers for a gorgeous couple in a rowboat, but also because Gene was photographing his longtime childhood friend, Trent, marry his sweetheart, Hannah. Aww! There’s so very much goodness to be seen, so make sure you head to the gallery for even more images.

From the bride, Hannah: Our favorite hobbies include antiquing and listening to live music, preferably folk. We wanted to make sure we incorporated our style of folk and antiques into our wedding one way or another. When we found the Barn we knew we had to have this as our location. The rusticness of the barn gave the perfect vibe we were envisioning for our wedding.

We didn’t really have a color scheme. So many people’s first questions was always, “So what are your colors?” and I would always respond, “It’s more of a vision…” We wanted our wedding to be cozy and intimate. Neither of us are very matchy matchy people. We wanted all of our bridesmaids and groomsmen to feel comfortable in in what they were wearing. I had the girls pick out grey dresses from J. Crew and the boys wore pretty much whatever they had in their closets.

We got 200 old western books donated to us from my local library back home. My mother made lots of the decor and our florist took my vision and created a beautiful scene for our wedding and reception the day of. I’ve always loved the Country look coming from rural Indiana and I wanted some of my roots in the feel of the wedding. The ball jars my mother found on the side of the road!

We also made our own boxed invitations! It took probably around 100 hours with help from family and friends but we did it! My brother designed our programs and map for our invite as well. Trent wrote the processional song as well and the groomsmen played it while the bridesmaids and I entered. It gave such a unique vibe to begin the ceremony.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Don’t settle on a color scheme but more of a theme. You can work so much more with themes than if you choose two colors and everything has to be those colors. Themes allow you to be creative and lets your imagination run wild! Also, take help when it is offered. Our wedding would have never turned out the way it did without the help of our family and friends. Finally, roll with the punches. Our wedding was May 1st in Tulsa, OK. One would think it would be beautiful. Unfortunately it was a high of 50 degrees and rainy. We had to move our wedding indoors at the last minute, but it actually made the wedding even more intimate with all our friends and family standing around us as we exchanged our vows.

    Love this! This is exactly what I’ve been experiencing lately when I tell people I don’t have ‘colors’. It is frustrating, but I’m glad to see such a beautiful wedding without ‘colors’.

    Grats!

    This is too cute! The couple looks incredibly happy… so heartwarming. And I really can’t get enough of anything that includes natural wood mixed with the cold appeal of wire and tin!

    LOVER-ly! The bride’s dress is a dream, but what really sticks out to me is her pearl necklace. I love the twisting on it. Makes me think of the peachy colored pearls Anne wore in Anne of Avonlea!

    The images look like they were shot on film; they are so soft. Were they?

    Isadora is a wonderful name for a gown!

    Amanda, the venue is at The Barn or Vive la Ranch in Tulsa, OK. It’s not advertised anywhere. It’s more of you have to stumble upon it or know someone who has stumbled upon it. Thanks for the post Ashley! Didn’t Gene do a fantastic job? I’m so happy he and Trent were childhood sweethearts… I mean friends :)

    @Courtney I believe that it is near Jenks. Just south of the Creek Turnpike.

    @Hannah First of all, your wedding was amazing! I’m so glad that you mentioned you had to move the wedding inside due to rain, as I’ve been considering this venue, but am a little hesitant due to Oklahoma weather. How was the setup inside? Were you planning on having the ceremony outisde and the reception inside? I haven’t visited and have been wondering how other brides incorporated the barn.

    I’m DYING to know where the bride got her sweater! I stumbled across this page and have been in love with that idea for months now, but cannot for the life of me find one similar! Thinking about having one custom made…help!?

    Please and thanks!
