rn Lauren Cooper (22 and a teacher) and Jordan Sprayberry (24 and a quality control professional) went all-in with their rustic wedding theme. Everything about their outdoor wedding at Lauren’s grandfather’s barn pavilion was DIY. “I love showing my creativity and it made the venue much more special,” Lauren says. She brought in white drapery, paper lanterns and folding chairs to contrast the neutral colors in the barn, and added Southern details such as pearls, lace, burlap, peacock feathers, mason jars, and even coffee-filter flowers. White hydrangeas and baby’s breath added classic Southern charm. “I feel like the decor was a reflection of our love for each other,” Lauren says. “It was pure, simple and natural—nothing over-the-top.” Tracye's Photography captured the sweet moments of the day, below.

Lauren wore a strapless fitted dress with an embellished empire waist. The bodice had pearl and crystal detailing, and the skirt had scalloped lace. Stunning!
Lauren and Jordan wanted an outdoor wedding, so they chose Lauren's grandfather's barn pavilion. "I could not wait to decorate my own wedding," Lauren says. "I chose this place because it was close to home and it was a clean palette for me to display my artistic talents."
The bridesmaids wore neutral strapless dresses with sweetheart necklines, and the groomsmen wore neutral pants with white collared button-down shirts. Their casual styles matched the rustic barn atmosphere in Stantonville, Tennessee.
Lauren tells us how she made her favorite DIY project: “We made these gorgeous hanging flowers out of flattened coffee filters and used a paper punch on the edges, glued a rhinestone in the middle and hung them above the dining tables."
"The white decor represents the pure and natural love we have for each other," Lauren says. Guests sat in white folding chairs under white drapery and paper lanterns hanging from the barn ceiling.
Since Lauren and Jordan got married outdoors in June, they provided their guests with neutral and white fans to stay cool during their ceremony. "I've had several people say they loved the fans and are still using them," Lauren says.
