A Rustic, Industrial Barn Wedding at Brookside Farms in Louisville, Ohio

Modern details mixed with industrial elements created a barn wedding that was filled with rustic charm (mooing cows and all). Kat Ball (26 and a pediatric physical therapist) and Andrew Finley (27 and a radiologist technician) shared a love for nature, so they had their ceremony outside on the property of Brookside Farms, right outside their hometown in Louisville, Ohio. Kat wore a stunning ivory wedding dress designed by BHLDN with an illusion neckline accented with lace and a tulle skirt with an elegant flow. The reception that followed was held inside the barn, accented in a neutral color palette complemented by succulent, baby’s breath and yellow craspedia arrangements, creating a rustic ambience that was captured by Chantel Marie Photography. Kat and her brother handmade many of the decorations months before the wedding, such as the cement planters and woodefn planks used for the centerpieces. Our favorite DIY project was the clipboards given to each guest as a keepsake, with a personal thank-you message from Kat and Andrew. “Each guest was able to take home a handmade clipboard and their own photos from the photo booth as a memory of the night,” Kat says.
