A Country Barn Wedding at Herot Hall Farm in Kenna, West Virginia

Meredith Caplinger (25 and in ministry) and Chris Caplinger (26 and in ministry) knew they wanted to base their natural country theme around a barn setting. "In Kenna, [West Virginia], there's a blueberry and blackberry farm called Herot Hall," Meredith says. "It's right on top of a mountain and the views around us were incredible." The barn and surrounding property had just been remodeled when Meredith and Chris planned their wedding, so everything looked new. Beautiful white invitations with purple floral accents gave guests a glimpse into the fall wedding. Pops of yellow added warm accents to the farm setting—from the sunflower bouquets accented with baby's breath to Chris's polka-dot bow tie and craspedia boutonniere. The bridesmaids also rocked the yellow with their short vibrant dresses, paired with brown cowboy boots to add some rustic-chic flair. The reception took place inside the barn, where yellow sunflower centerpieces propped up on wooden slabs decorated dining tables draped in burlap and lace . The impressive variety of desserts (many of which were homemade) had our mouths watering, ranging from colorful cake pops to iced cupcakes and, of course, the wedding cake—a four-tier delight wrapped with burlap at the bottom of each layer, topped with Willow Tree figurines. See more details that we couldn't wait to feature from this wedding, below.

 

The white invitations were designed with purple budded branches. The brown envelopes had purple markings on the back flap that also portrayed a floral design.
Ivory Lace V-Neck Wedding Dress
Meredith told her bridesmaids the color of their dress would be yellow, and then let them make the rest of the attire choices based on their own style. All the bridesmaids wore brown cowboy boots, which matched Meredith's shoes.
Chris wore a yellow and black polka-dot bow tie around the top of his blue collared dress shirt. He wore a brown jacket that made him stand out from his groomsmen, pinned with a yellow craspedia boutonniere on the lapel.

"The guys' outfits were based off things they already had—brown shoes, brown pants, blue shorts, suspenders, bow ties or ties," Meredith says. "No one matched exactly, but it all just worked. Chris wore a brown jacket to make him stand out from the other guys."
Sunflower and Greenery Centerpieces
Peach and White Cake Pops
Chris sported a brown jacket, paired with a black-and-white polka-dot bow tie over a blue collared dress shirt. He had a craspedia boutonniere pinned to his lapel, matching his yellow bow tie and tying his look together.
