Real Weddings: Ashley & Jake's Rustic Country Wedding


Happy Friday, ya'll! Yes, we can say that, as we have a wedding to share with you today that is right up the alley for anyone whom is a rustic southern country wedding fan! Cotton bolls, boots, mason jars, burlap, chalkboard signs and a barn are the perfect elements for such a wedding, and we've got it all! Thanks to Georgia Wedding Photographer Andie Freeman for sending over another wedding our way, at a venue we've featured before as well, Antique Acres

What I am really drawn into is the attention to details and the beautiful black and white shots along with the gorgeous colorful imagery. And, this couple, let me tell you, they are stunning!!! We found out, these lovebirds are high school sweethearts! Aww! 

Andie shared a bit with us about Ashley & Jake, and their lovely story:
Ashley and Jake are true high school sweethearts! They have been together since they were 14. The past spring, they had a beautiful rustic barn wedding at Antique Acres in the heart of the South. They wanted the wedding to reflect everything about who they are as a couple. Ashley chose watermelon for her main color because she wanted something bright and fun as well as reflecting the coming summer months. She also wanted cotton to be a fixture. So wedding planner, event designer, and florist, Jessie Patton, made that a reality. The bouquets and all of the decor feature accents of cotton. It was a beautiful and fun day all around!!

Please sit back and enjoy the beautiful wedding of Ashley & Jake, as captured by Andie Freeman Photography:



























































Gorgeous, right?! The couple and their wedding! And, can Ashley rock her boots in her stunning gown, or what?! I love the cotton boll accents...I'm a sucker for those. I have them in my fall and winter decor around my home to give that rustic look I love so much. I love that they appear in both the bouquets, boutonnieres and about the wedding. The colors of the wedding are divine, too, as beautifully displayed in the bouquets. 

Thanks again to Andie Freeman Photography for sending over another wedding our way!
