The Milestone Barn: A Rustic Elegant Summer Wedding

filed in

If you are planning for a rustic elegant summer wedding, make sure to check out Andrew and Cheyenne’s wedding at The Milestone Barn. Their wedding is a perfect combination of elegance and rustic romance. Although the planning was affected by COVID, they managed to reschedule their May wedding and turned it into a magical summer barn wedding. There are so many things I love about this wedding!

The Milestone Barn

Their commitment to putting in the hard work that is part of a successful marriage is truly inspirational. The aesthetic balance of the event was most evident in their choice of venue. The Milestone Barn is constructed in a manner that brought out the elegance of natural wood and decorations that combined the sophistication of roses with the rough edges of thistle.

Vibrant Bridal Bouquet of Greenery and Burgundy Flowers

The blend of colors in Cheyenne’s bouquet made by Magical Blooms and I Do’s highlighted her natural beauty without distracting from her beautiful dress. The natural light at the event was reflected in the eyes of the two lovers.

They Included Their Dog On Their Wedding Day

And who couldn’t be more present in a moment when you are marrying your dear love and then joined by the uncontrolled enthusiasm of their fur baby, Theo! As you can see…Theo loves to give kisses to his parents!

Thoughtful and Fun-Loving Bridal Party 

Surrounded by their sweet and fun-loving friends and family, Cheyenne and Andrew seemed to glow from within throughout this beautiful event.

I hope my photographs help you experience their intimate and precious love story. Their devotion to their faith clearly shone throughout the entire ceremony and was clearly an integral part of their love. I am so lucky to have a role in spreading their love by capturing this inspirational couple!

This beautiful handmade silk and lace face mask is made by Cheyenne’s talented sister. Isn’t this the most gorgeous bridal face mask?!

Right before the ceremony, Andrew was reading the love letter wrote by Cheyenne. This is one of the sweetest moments on their wedding day! 

Cheyenne is truly beautiful inside and out! I adore her so much!!
