Let’s start this morning off with a soft and cozy inspiration shoot! What I love about barn weddings is the perfect juxtaposition of romantic details in rustic settings. Today’s barn inspiration from Amy Rae Photography provides so much for your eyes to feast upon with that killer Southern combo. Some of my favorite details include the duo of shabby chic chandeliers (one baby’s breath, one mason jar!), cozy lounge area and amazing altar. Kudos to Embellished Weddings for rounding up all the details! Read on for all the credits from this talented team below, and don’t miss the delicious-looking Southern eats from Abbey Road Catering!

I confess, I want to be friends with Katie + Nathan. I love how they incorporated old items like vintage keys, tins, and picture frames into their garden-like reception to give their wedding a classic Southern ambiance without being themed. The newlyweds wanted their wedding day to be about spending time with family, and the backyard reception gave them the perfect space to do so. When we talked to Katie as our Southern Bride of the Month, she said she was invested in having good food. The couple delivered! Guests chowed down on good ole Southern food, complete with pie bar courtesy of Wild Flour Pastry, and ended the meal with a slice of Katie + Nathan’s cute and simple lemon cake from The Cake Stand— love those little bird toppers! My favorite part of reading about this wedding was hearing how the newlyweds stole a few minutes away from the party to reflect on how far they’ve come.

See all of the photos from Katie + Nathan’s wedding in their Real Wedding Gallery!

Describe your wedding flowers: Fluffy peonies paired with mint, lavender, and sprigs of stock. I love how our florist incorporated flowers that were not only stunning, but smelled amazing!
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? Sometimes we would become so entrenched in the wedding planning that it was hard to see the big picture – getting married! In those moments, we had to put away the spreadsheets and the glue gun and take a break from the planning. Spending time with each other and remembering why it was that we wanted to get married helped us regain focus and momentum.
What range did your wedding budget fall into? $10,000-$25,000.
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? Hiring a videographer was one of the initial items on the “if we have room in the budget list”. We decided to go for it and, looking back, it should have been on my “must have” list all along. The day rushes by so fast. I was so overcome with emotion and joy that I hardly remember certain moments. We cannot wait to receive our video in the mail and be able to relive those precious moments for years to come.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? We were well into the reception when I went upstairs to powder my nose. I walked past the groom’s room and noticed Nate standing by the window that led out onto the second story porch. When he saw me, he took my hand and led me through the doorway into the porch. I cherish those few moments that we had together, out of view from everyone, they were the only minutes we had alone all day. We just kept looking at each other, saying, “Wow, we made it!”
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We are already busy living the life we have built. Spending lots of time with friends, visiting family, and saving up for some fun travels are all priorities for us right now. We are really looking forward to our first Christmas together as husband and wife, complete with our very own tree!

      Just wanted to say that this is my all time favorite wedding out of all the ones I’ve seen on sites everywhere in the last year! The dress is amazing, the tuxes and ties, the vintage style dance floor, the beautiful centerpieces and table numbers, the cake topper…..the list goes on and on. Thank you for the inspiration as I plan my wedding for next June!!

Today’s bride was our very first Southern Bride of the Month! We loved hearing about Katie + Nathan’s plans for the big day and now we get to see it! I love comparing their inspiration board to the photos from their wedding — the details are seamless! I’m a sucker for a lace gown and Katie looks timeless and elegant in hers from Modern Trousseau (read on to find out how buying her dress was like a Cinderella story!). Paired with her flawless and natural makeup by Pamela Lesch, she could not be more stunning. Of course, I can’t forget to mention Nathan and his handsome groomsmen. The guys looked like perfect gentlemen in their pale tuxes and brown leather shoes. Joey and Jessica of Veil and Bow did an amazing job capturing Katie + Nathan’s wedding. I love looking at the photo of the happy couple walking back up the aisle after their vows–it looks like one their kids might frame and display at their own weddings.

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We almost didn’t meet at all actually! We both attended the same college, Elon University. My sophomore year, I was thinking about transferring to Auburn, and Nate had just transferred in to Elon from UNC Charlotte. We were both convinced by different people to attend a recruitment night for the campus business fraternity. The whole meeting, I kept thinking, “Wow that guy is cute!” Turns out I wasn’t the only one noticing people that night.
Describe the proposal. A walk in downtown Charleston with our friends turned into a secret mission to give us some time alone. We were in Waterfront Park and I remember wondering why Nate was so fidgety! Is it terrible that I don’t remember what he said to me when he proposed? He did get down on one knee, though, and said he couldn’t imagine his life without me in it. A group of tourists walking by erupted in cheers when I nodded yes. Good thing I said yes, right?
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Intimate, joyful, carefree
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: It’s a rather large detail, but our venue really stole the show with our guests! The house was so full of southern charm and details, from the 3 story wrap-around porches and brick wall covered with creeping fig and jasmine, to the curved staircase and soaring pocket doors in the dining room. With such an impressive backdrop, we had to do very little to decorate!
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? The location of course, Charleston, was Southern. The fact that the ceremony and reception were held in the backyard of the venue felt very Southern to me; it was all about spending time with family on a warm spring evening.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: It’s the Lauren dress by Modern Trousseau. It was all lace with a sweetheart neckline and godets at the bottom; it flares when I twirl! When I first heard the retail price of the dress at my local boutique, I knew that it was absolutely out of my price range. I e-mailed someone directly at the showroom in Connecticut and told them my sad, sad, sad story. To my astonishment, the director called me, and before I knew it, he had sold me the dress at cost and even let me pay it off over several months. The point is, don’t be afraid to ask, you never know when a serendipitous event is headed your way! The folks at Modern Trousseau are an amazing bunch! Thanks y’all!

    Love everything! So beautiful. The groom’s and groom’s men suits are exactly what we are wanting for our wedding. Could you pass on the correct name of the color & also maybe designer or where they were purchased? Thanks!

    • avatar Katie the Bride reply

      Kelly: The suits are from Jos A Bank. They are the poplin suit in the Oyster Color!

    • avatar Sofie reply

      Katie the Bride: Hi, I just wanted to tell you that your wedding has been my inspiration for over a year now and I’m finally getting married in June. We loved the groom and groomsmen suits with the seersucker ties so much! I was ecstatic to see that you had shared where you got them and what color they were. We just went to Jos.A.Bank yesterday and ended up purchasing 7 of the poplin suits in Oyster for my fiance and his groomsmen! We are thinking of doing seersucker ties as well, but a mint green seersucker stripe, to match our colors. The centerpieces, table numbers, dessert display, cake topper, iron gate w/ moss letters, lace dress, feather hair piece, suits, bridesmaid dresses, and even the checkerboard dance floor! Everything was so spectacular!! Thanks again for sharing and for the inspiration!
