From the perfect country setting to the antique cocktail lounge and pastel florals, Ashley and Patrick created a laid back, romantic atmosphere for their wedding with simple vintage-inspired touches and rustic accents.

In addition to wedding cake, Ashley and Patrick served five different kinds of pie: blackberry, mile high apple pie, mile high caramel apple pie, pecan and German chocolate. The desserts were displayed on mismatched cake stands and a distressed buffet for a shabby chic look.
Ashley made each table number herself, painting pieces of wood with chalkboard paint.
Mason jar shaped escort cards displayed the names of each guest and their seating assignment. Vintage inspired skeleton keys were tied to each jar with twine for a rustic look.
The reception tables had a shabby chic vibe with simple pastel florals, vintage books, wood accents and mason jars.
A lounge composed of antique chairs and a settee gave the cocktail hour a distinctly vintage flair.
Ashley and Patrick wanted their cake to have a simple, rustic look. The four tiers of the cake were accented with raffia ribbon and pink, ivory and yellow roses.
The cocktail hour took place in front of the Kuhs Farm barn. In addition to refreshments, there was a bonfire where guests could make s'mores and a petting zoo for all of the children that attended.
Patrick kept his look polished, yet casual with a brown suit, gingham shirt and taupe colored tie. He paired the look with a rustic berzelia boutonniere.
Ashley chose a romantic pastel color palette for her bouquet, which she filled with dahlias, roses, scabiosas, astilbe, anemones and tuberoses.
Ashley wanted to create a mismatched look for her bridesmaids, so she had each girl choose their own style and color. Each girl chose a short dress to show off their rustic cowboy boots.
Ashley wanted hair and makeup to look natural for her wedding day. She wore her hair down in loose romantic curls and opted for subtle makeup.
Ashley and Patrick had 18 children in their wedding - Patrick's nine nieces and nephews and Ashley's nine cousins. The girls wore ivory dresses, handmade flower crowns and cowboy boots, while the boys wore khaki pants, white shirts and brown shoes for a simple, casual look.
Ashley gave her look a country flair with a pair of brown leather cowboy boots.
The aisles were decorated with bunches of yellow and white wildflowers arranged in mason jar vases.
