{Real Wedding} Jennifer and Clayton’s Homespun Barn Wedding

Living in Tennessee, I definitely see a lot of rustic, barn weddings. However, there’s something extra that really comes with a wedding you know was a complete homespun affair like Jennifer and Clayton’s.

Jennifer and Clayton were married in Roseberry, Idaho back in July of this year, and the event was as DIY as weddings get! From using lavender picked locally the weekend prior to the wedding, to doing all her own flowers, Jennifer (with the help of her mom and Eye Candy Event Design) is definitely a DIY bride. But I’ll let you see that for yourself…

I absolutely love how Jennifer and Clayton used chalkboard paint in their wedding decor; it really brings home the rustic, barn vibe.

For their guest quilt — yes, quilt — they simply used plywood with chalkboard paint to mount the quilt, and then one of the bridesmaids sewed it.

Paying homage to their individual alma maters, Jennifer and Clayton incorporated two signature drinks in their reception — Longhorn Limeade (Jennifer’s a University of Texas alum) and Moscow-jito (Clayton is a University of Idaho alum).

Ashley of Eye Candy Event Design (and also one of our new contributing writers here) created this lovely pie table that really added to the overall look of the day!

Thank you, Jennifer and Clayton for sharing your big day with me!

    I love the pie idea!! I’m not a huge cake fan and having a family where everyone wants to pitch in everyone could bring their best pie an we could cut the cost of cake! We are also doing a barn wedding hopefully it’s as beautiful as this one.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old dwughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear aand screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched heer ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    May I just say what a comfort to find someone who actyally knows what they’re talking about on the net.
    You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light andd make it
    important. More and more people need to read this and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you aren’t more popular because you certainly possess
    the gift.

    [...] You can’t convince me that this is NOT a cute idea. It’s super unique AND it would be awesome to keep forever. Especially if the squares were really retro, uniquely designed, different colors and artistic. So do I LOVE this quilt? Not really.
