Nothing says “Kansas wedding” quite like this one at the Stone Hill Barn in the small city of Augusta. The second you actually find the dirt road you’re supposed to turn down, you’re surprised with acres and acres of wheat, evergreens, wildflowers and a 7,400 square foot barn that’s just chic enough to attract even the most glamorous of brides. To give this flower-crowned princess bride the wedding she envisioned, she made all of her centerpieces from scratch! “My centerpieces were almost all homemade, from the wood boxes for the centerpieces to the wood signs. My mom actually put together all of the flower details for the reception, which was pretty special for me as well.” says Laykin. “I spent countless hours searching for what I wanted and it was so rewarding seeing it all just how I envisioned.”
The simple ivory and greens color palette swept over every inch of the wedding. From Laykin’s headpiece and bouquets by Moore Flowers, to the florals scattered throughout the desserts and centerpieces. This bride knew she wanted to keep her day timeless and true to themselves. And did you see the groom’s attire!? No tie, loose unbuttoned look? It was just about as GQ as it gets! Laykin didn’t get to see this look until the moment she walked down the aisle. She says, “I was overwhelmed with emotion walking down the aisle. All day I was just so ready for that moment to finally see him – I can’t really put it into words.”
After the ceremony and that vast Kansas sunset, guests ventured back to the barn where the evening festivities began! The barn was lit with bistro lights (and the night sky stars) with an ambiance so warm and inviting!
