{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!
