Terilyn and Eric’s Sunflower Filled Rustic Barn Wedding. By Will Greene

Todays wedding comes all the way from North Carolina in the form of this gorgeous rustic barn wedding. Beause we aren’t in rainy, cold, windy England, this wedding features a gorgeous outdoor ceremony and a wondeful collection of  beautiful blooms. I just love the rustic details and all of the gorgeous decoration. The barn venue is stunning and fits perfectly with the whole rustic theme. What I love most of all though is the menu! Why can’t more weddings have a menu like this; Fried and barbecue chicken, coleslaw, macaroni and cheese! Oh my food heaven! Thanks to Will Greene for the images.

‘A fantastic day that we will remember forever’

Terilyn and Eric Fleming were married on 20th September 2014 at Tripps Farm, Greenville, North Carolina. ‘We wanted a simple, rustic look and Tripp Farms fit perfectly we had a total of 100 guests. We were engaged for a year and a half so the planning took about that amount of time.

How they met
We met in college through a roommate of mine. We have been together for 4 years.

The Proposal
We prepaid for a yellow lab puppy from a family friend who breeds. On the day he was finally ready we picked him up and brought him home. While Eric was alone in the living room with the puppy he tied the ring around his neck with a ribbon. When I came into the room he was on one knee. Simply perfect!

How did you allocate your budget
We knew experience is what mattered most to us. So we spend most of our budget on music, food and beverages

How did you choose your photographer
We absolutely loved the look of Will Greene Photography. Their portfolio was full of rustic sessions with soft lighting and beautiful editing. It was love at first sight!

The Dress
I have always been obsessed with low back dresses so I knew that was a must in my wedding gown. Simple lace detailing and delicate straps complimented my cowboy boots perfectly

The Suit and Bridesmaids
The grooms men wore khaki to keep with the casual feel and my girls wore short strapless dresses to stay comfy in the unpredictable Carolina Septembers! I changed it up a little by having my maid of honor in a cranberry color to stand out from my others maids in plum.

Theme or Colour Scheme
We worked with plum as our main color and incorporated plums/ oranges with yellow sunflowers! It turned out better than we could’ve ever hoped for

Decoration
We kept the decorations simple with sunflowers and hurricane cases. Lots of wooden rustic touches as well.

Food
We had a North Carolina buffet! Fried and barbecue chicken, coleslaw, macaroni and cheese, etc. Perfect for our guests! Our wedding cake was made by Eric’s grandmother. She has her own cake business and the chocolate was to die for.

Entertainment
We had a DJ who kept the crowd going not only with line dances but joining in as well

Buy or DIY your Stationery
We purchased it online through Etsy! So affordable and easy to work with.

Personal or Handmade Touches
We had a wine box to open on our first anniversary incorporated into our ceremony instead of a traditional unity candle. We also hand made the centerpieces for cocktail hour and the mason jars mugs we used as favours

Special Moments
Seeing Eric’s face was the best moment of the day hands down! It was also amazing to see all of our hard work turn out so perfectly and have all of our family there to share their love and support.

Advice to other couples
My biggest tip would be to take a long engagement! We got to enjoy planning our wedding because we took the time to take in every step of the way. We were also able to get all the venders we wanted since it was so far out!

Biggest surprise
I am not typically a very emotional person so I was surprised at how much I cried! From Eric’s vows to my maid of honor’s speech to my mother/daughter dance, tears of happiness we flowing! Such an amazing day.
