The country-chic wedding of Kentucky natives Nicole Bebout (24 and a paralegal) and Coleman Bebout (26 and a chemical operator) combined the bride’s flamboyant style with Coleman’s down-to-earth taste. They got married at Burdoc Farms in Crofton, Kentucky, because the rustic setting felt natural and comfortable for their celebration with 155 loved ones, but still charming and Southern. Their wedding planner, Viki's Sunshine & Sweet Tea, helped ensure that the day ran smoothly and enhance the Ole’ Leanin’ Barn with wooden church pews and vintage doors paired with whiskey barrels for their ceremony. The florists at Bowtanicals created colorful floral arrangements, including edgy succulents, that added a romantic touch to Nicole and Coleman’s DIY wedding arch. The reception followed in the Tobacco Barn, an open-air venue illuminated by bistro lights with a pond out back that completely won over Nicole and Coleman. They decorated with navy and green to match the wooden interior, and danced the night away to tunes by DJ Remix MC. Now that she’s a newlywed, Nicole offers a tip for future brides: “Marriage is not about a single day where you get to put on a white dress and everyone has to tell you you’re beautiful. It’s about going through the daily grind with someone who, regardless of your stubbornness, sassiness and lack of a green thumb, still thinks you’re the coolest human on the planet.” Heather Todd Photography captured all the sweet moments, below.

Nicole's bridesmaids wore light green floor-length dresses with sweetheart necklines. Coleman's attendants wore navy suits.
Nicole wore her hair in a curled side ponytail with a pair of white flower hair accessories. She kept her makeup romantic with a pink lip and added drama around her eyes.
Nicole and her bridesmaids carried colorful bouquets filled with blush, fuchsia, orange, coral and green hues. Bowtanicals combined peonies, spray roses, chrysanthemums, hypericum berries, alstroemeria and edgy succulents to create this look.
Nicole and Coleman built a DIY wooden wedding arch. They draped it with white linens and had their florist add ferns and fresh, colorful flowers to complete the rustic-chic aesthetic.
Nicole and Coleman said “I do” in the Ole’ Leanin’ Barn for its romantic string lighting, old wooden church pews and its protection from the elements. They used old whiskey barrels and church doors at the aisle entrance, and strung moss-covered "Bs" at the entrance for a personal touch.
Nicole and Coleman laughed off one mishap: The processional and recessional songs got swapped. "Instead of walking out to 'Marry You' by Bruno Mars, we awkwardly left to 'Uptown Funk," Nicole says. "Our friends think we're super-hipster. Not!"
Navy dining tables with light green accents matched the rustic barn setting. White folding chairs added a classic contrast and Southern touch.
The dining table centerpieces included hand-cut wooden slabs with vintage mason jars filled with colorful fresh flowers. Small lanterns and candles added a romantic touch.
Teresa's Sweet Tooth Confections created a two-tier cake covered in textured white buttercream. Coral and pink flowers added a pop of color to the confection.
Nicole and Coleman filled an old hutch with different flavors of homemade jams and jellies for their wedding favors. Each jar had a colorful "love" tag tied with a navy ribbon.
Nicole wanted a dress she could walk and dance in, so she chose a classic strapless Maggie Sottero gown with lace details. It had a sweetheart neckline and a sash with just the right amount of sparkle, illuminated by the soft lighting in the barn where she and Coleman shared their first dance to "Dancing Shoes" by Green River Ordinance.
