A Casual, Rustic Wedding at Timber Line Barn in Buffalo, Missouri

Loving the rustic, laid-back feel of the gorgeous Timber Line Barn, Amanda Moulder (24 and a mom) and Jon Sanders (31 and a general contractor) used it as inspiration for their entire wedding. “This venue is truly a hidden gem,” Amanda says. “When we went to go see it, we were both so in love. This barn is rustic with modern touches. It is so full of charm, with some amazing owners, and even features a goodie barn with every color of decoration you could possibly fathom! If I had a chance to do it all over, I would choose Timber Line every time! Nothing beats that country sunset.” The couple chose a turquoise and brown color palette and rustic decor that included mason jars, burlap and denim. We love all the DIY details throughout the wedding, including the custom leather suspenders made by Amanda’s mother, the burlap and silk flowers made by Amanda and the flower girl’s tutu skirt also made by Amanda. The best part, though, was the romantic, intimate ceremony between Amanda, Jon and their son, Sylas. “When it came time for our vows, which we wrote ourselves, Jon said his to me and then turned and got on his knee and said his vows to my son. Everyone was in tears. It was the most special and heartwarming moment of my life. His vows to Sylas were, ‘I promise to teach you how to throw a ball, bait a hook and how to treat a woman. I promise to love, protect and encourage you. I promise to give you hugs in public, even after you think it is embarrassing.’” There are so many moments we love—see them all, beautifully captured by Jessica Yahn Photography, below.
