Eclectic, Earthy Ohio Barn Wedding


Marissa + Brandon's October wedding at The Grand Barn at the Mohicans was utter perfection. Brandon proposed to Marissa overlooking Emerald Bay in Lake Tahoe, so it's no surprise that when it came time to plan their wedding, they included earthy accents paired with fun and eclectic details. They served booze-filled donuts, care of Brewnuts, and cut a simple white cake, made by Faithful Little Cupcake.

After the vows were said, the cake was cut, and they danced the night away, Marissa remarked that the most memorable part of the day was "having all of our family and friends together celebrating with us. The food was amazing, the donuts were amazing, and everything ran so smoothly we didn't have to worry about a thing."

Modern Earthy Wedding Inspiration

Last year, Oak & Honey was thrilled to be a part of Mallory + Justin Photographers Collected Styled Shoot. The shoot featured a dream team of vendors that came together to create a modern organic wedding scene - and we can't wait to share it with you today. We love participating in styled shoots for a couple of reasons. First, we get to meet and work with vendors that we may not otherwise get to work with! And also, working with a team to create and execute a mock wedding vision from start to finish not only gives us access to great images like these below from Fleeting Fox Photography, but it also fuels our creativity to plan a scene that may be new or different on on-trend for the coming wedding season.

The scene for this day was organic and eclectic... and it's a vibe that we think will pop up at quite a few 2018 weddings!

September Wedding at Cherry Basket Farm

Last week Maddy and Chris's wedding was featured on Artfully Wed! We were thrilled to pack our bags and head off to Northport, Michigan for Maddy and Chris' wedding at Cherry Basket Farm! Cherry Basket Farm is a restored 120-year-old farm located just north of the historic village of Omena in Leelanau County, Michigan. This rustic venue is surrounded by hardwoods, cherry orchards, and farmland.

Maddy and Chris' wedding ceremony, which was designed and coordinated by Oak & Honey Events, took place on the upper level of the venue's two-story, timber-framed barn, while cocktail hour took place downstairs, and dinner under the tent. Their guests then headed up upstairs to join the couple for dancing and desserts!

The venue's rustic vibe paired well with the couple's bohemian style. Elbowgrease Design provided gorgeous macrame chandeliers for the event, in addition to an ombre macrame escort sign by Baci Designer. The color palette consisted of blush, marsala, sand, and espresso, in addition to the greenery that was incorporated throughout the design. These photos from Maiko Media perfectly captured the beauty of this event!

Romantic Autumn-Inspired Styled Shoot at The Ariel Pearl Center

After much anticipation, today is the day that this stunning styled shoot hits the Every Last Detail blog and we're excited to share it with you! The Ariel Pearl Center provided the perfect backdrop for this autumn-inspired shoot. The historic bank building with its marble columns and floors, stone walls, and large arched windows complemented our soft peach and orange color palette perfectly.

Oak & Honey Events along with our dream team of vendors created a romantic and whimsical setting, rooted in tradition and elegance. Every detail was flawless. Twig Floral provided a buffet of loose, lush greenery accented by warm peach florals. A gold-adorned tablescape provided by All Occasions Party Rental complemented the vintage feel of the room. And Renee Lemaire Photography captured every detail perfectly.

September Wedding at the Inn at Honey Run

We are thrilled to be able to share Crystal and Jeff's wedding after being featured on Bridal Musing! The Oak & Honey Events team was thrilled to head back out to Millersburg, Ohio for Crystal and Jeff's wedding at the Inn at Honey Run last September! The couple rented out the whole property, utilizing The Grove for their ceremony, the Treetop Pavilion for cocktail hour and dancing, and the Tarragon Room for dinner. Their design concept was completely unique, featuring romantic details with lots of copper accents and pops of marsala. This palette was complemented by shades of blush, eucalyptus, as well as soft peach.

In addition to the greenery in the decor, there were also a handful of green aspects throughout the wedding. Fair Rarity Flowers sourced all the flowers provided locally, which were then donated to a local assisted living facility after the wedding. The Inn at Honey Run's Tarragon menu also features many local ingredients from area farmers.

We just can't get enough of these beautiful photos captured by Suzuran Photography!

October Wedding at Club Walden

Beth and Justin couldn't have picked a more perfect fall day to celebrate the biggest day of their lives! The scenery of the day pair perfectly with their color palette of sage green, wine, navy, gray, pale blush, and gold. Oak & Honey Events helped bring the couples' vision to life, creating a soft and organic vibe with the decor mixed with a few modern touches. Beth and Justin held their ceremony at the Shrine Church of St. Stanislaus, then celebrated with their family and friends at the place where it all started - Club Walden, where they first met!

October Wedding at Crown Point Ecology Center

Amy and Mike's wedding took place at Crown Point Ecology Center in Bath, Ohio. Their ceremony was held outside on the lawn, just past the venue's historic barn. The couple said their "I do's" in front of a rustic wooden arbor, adorned with single-stemmed flowers inside assorted glass bottles. Their color palette boasted shades of fall, including burnt orange, sand, goldenrod, and navy. Oak & Honey Events assisted with the design and coordination of the event. Amy and Mike also chose to include a handful of accents from Germany, where they currently live, including German Schnapps and German chocolate for their guests to enjoy! After dancing the night away, guests headed outside to enjoy a surprise, late-night snack from Swensons!

Summer K Photography was on site to capture every beautiful moment from the day, and also got some great shots of the flowers provided by Branch and Bloom, which were all locally sourced.hoffmann-colorsamymike015amymike016amymike003amymike035amymike036amymike022amymike042amymike023amymike045amymike026amymike028amymike029amymike041amymike011amymike030vision-board

August Wedding at the Inn at Honey Run

Bethany & Robert's wedding was the first of two this season that took place at the Inn at Honey Run! The Inn at Honey Run is a boutique hotel in Ohio's Amish Country, with an upscale, yet comfortable atmosphere. This peaceful, woodland venue is set among 50 acres of forest and meadows. Bethany & Robert's ceremony took place outside, on the venue's Treetop Pavilion. Follow the ceremony, guests moved to the Tarragon Room for cocktail hour and dinner, then dancing and desserts followed back on the Treetop Pavilion, where the couple danced the night away with all of their guests!

Oak & Honey Events designed and coordinated the couple's wedding, making sure to add unique touches to showcase their quirky, steampunk style. The color palette consisted of gray, sage green, and shades of plum. Bethany & Robert also wanted to incorporate eco-friendly aspects in their wedding, which our team was happy to help coordinate! These aspects included using potted succulents for escort cards that can be re-used, locally sourced flowers, and favors that were locally made  (jam from The Runcible Spoon, which is owned by the bride's brother, as well as honey). Their flowers were also donated to a local nursing home.
