Real Wedding: Sheena and Kyle

Today, we're launching a brand new feature here on Barnwood & Birch: The Real Wedding. I know you're all familiar with this concept so I don't really need to explain it. But, I'm so excited to be kicking it off today with original content thanks to many, many generous and talented photographers. The first wedding we're featuring was sent over by Columbus, Ohio, based Picture the Love photography.

Why am I drawn to this wedding? The bride is an art teacher so many of their details were handmade--including their adorable programs. Oh, and I might be partial to the red hair.

How can you not adore the freckles on this bride's back?

The photo wall was DIY'd and a solution to covering up the business signage that took up much of the lobby of their venue. Just look at those two adorable pups that the bride and groom included.

  1. Hi there! I followed you when you were blogging on weddingbee. I *loved* your wedding, everything was gorgeous. Best of luck on your endeavors! I'll be reading along the way... :)

  2. Hi Alicia. Your first post was the first post I read on WeddingBee, and I followed you from go to whoa. You were the one who taught me that you don't have to do something in a wedding, just because it's 'done.' I've just had to explain to my nan that not all bride's wear veils, and you dont have to have a cake! I adored your wedding, and you now have a loyal subscriber to your new blog. If I lived near your (unfortunately, Australia is a wee bit too far away) I would totally hire you. Like, now. xo

  3. Its great experience to visit your blog. It is very helpful and informative. Thanks for sharing it.
