Bohemian Romance Meets Barn Wood Inspiration

Confession: We have a huge soft spot for barn weddings! Especially when they're the kind that mix modern, bohemian elegance with a gorgeous barn wood backdrop. That's because it's such an unexpected pairing!

And the result? When done right, it's an absolute swoon fest! Today's shoot with design and florals by FreeRange Floral and design and photography by Freebird Photography! It's is barn wood meets boho done oh-so-right! And with styling help from Detailed Engagements — let's just say we're in for a real treat with this beauty of a shoot! And lucky for us, we get a front seat to all of the pretty!

From the photographer, "Hidden in the woods of Kensington, NH lies 400 acres of protected land known as Alnoba."

"Alnoba truly is a place like none other and the more we learned about the property the more we knew it would be the perfect setting for our styled shoot."

One of the most gorgeous table settings I've ever seen, how stunning! I love the simplicity of the barn with the added pop of floral decor.
