A Rustic Barn Wedding With Bohemian Flair at a Private Residence in Huasna, California
The natural fields of greenery surrounding this private residence with an onsite barn, California, created an organic, laid-back ambience for anyone seeking a country setting. "We chose a barn in a very rural area, with very little spoiling the beautiful views of the landscape," Chelsey Harding (27 and a hairstylist) and Mark Harding (26 and an independent content producer) say of their marriage. "It rained days before the wedding, so everything still had that fresh look about it, with a lot of green still on display." The earth tone palette stayed true to the environment, flowing with the landscape at this rustic, natural wedding that was captured on camera by Jonathan David Studios. Lori Boe Floral Design arranged the flower decorations with mostly greenery, along with accents of Queen Anne's lace, yellow brunia, succulents and subtle touches of white lilies. There was no dress code for friends and family besides wearing something comfortable that complemented the casual, free-spirited that Chelsea and Mark wore throughout the day. The ceremony took place outside on the open field, where no additional decor was added in order to keep the focus on Mother Nature's scenic views. Guests were guided to the barn for the reception, where they were seated at white tables accented with burlap and lace linens. When time came for dessert, there were five wedding cakes served—ranging from pink champagne to banana nut—and we love how they were displayed on wooden crates and vintage decor that went along with the rustic barn ambience. "Focus on the positive things, rather than what's gone wrong," Chelsey and Mark says. "Have faith that everything will fall into place on your special day."
