White Barn Wedding with a Wreath-Wearing Donkey

A white barn wedding is every bit of romance, charm and class you could ask for on a wedding day. Add in a pastel bouquet with a lace dress and bistro lights — yes, please! Make way for a romantic escape, donkey included.

The Barn at Willowynn

This white barn wedding venue, The Barn at Willowynn, is breathtaking. Chandeliers, white walls, high ceilings and secluded grounds are just the start of the elements that will wow you.

It’s located just a little north of Galveston and is so easy to get to! A gorgeous bridal suite, fun groom’s suite, and jaw-droppingly beautiful open air chapel are all part of the grounds. The open air chapel has some great lighting and you can feel the coastal air, at times, in your hair.

A pair you can’t compare

Meet Chandler and Patrick, a fun and adventurous couple who love to travel. Whether it’s seeing distant locales or going for a jog, the two are frequently out and about, and, always together. They chose the Barn at Willowynn because, for them and for many others, it is the best mix of a modern, yet countryside setting.

Classic wedding couple portraits

We can’t get over how gorgeous these portraits are. Sweet kisses, side glances and all surrounded by the most lovely florals.

Soft and sophisticated pastel wedding invitations

We have to mention these invitations too. Just look at them. Blush pink with a white envelope, we paired them with a pink ring box and flowers for the styled flatlay shots. You have to get photos like these of your invitations!

Keeping it light with a mobile bar

Reflecting on this soft, romantic day

The day featured lots of dreamy, feminine décor and soft pink pastel details. It all came together wonderfully. Their wedding had a light, airy and dreamy feel about it. Just looking at the images gives the same completely carefree and relaxed feeling we all had that day.
