A Casual Shabby-Chic Barn Wedding at The Densmore Farm in Cleveland, Georgia
Kristy Butler (25 and a therapist) was hiking with her God sister in the Georgia mountains and expecting to see incredible views of the foothills when they got to the top. Instead, they found Mark Mycroft (25 and in retail management) down on one knee and surrounded by candles. "He told me that I was and always would be his home and asked if I would marry him," says Kristy. "Of course I said yes and six months later we made it official!" The couple exchanged vows during a casual fall ceremony at The Densmore Farm in Cleveland, Georgia. Kristy and Mark hoped to achieve a welcoming and homey vibe by incorporating meaningful vintage details throughout their decor. The couple used an old door and windows from Kristy's grandfather's house to create a shabby-chic ceremony backdrop. "Everything we had from the programs to the thank you gifts were handmade and put together by the community we are surrounded by," says Kristy. Billy ball arrangements with burlap accents added a rustic vibe to the gray and yellow color palette. Following dinner and dancing, guests were thanked with homemade cookies.
