Today I am thrilled to share a beautiful rustic Pennsylvania barn wedding with pretty burgundy and blue details.

She says of the couple and their rustic Pennsylvania barn wedding…
Grayson House is an elegant barn wedding venue in Uniontown, Pennsylvania with views of the Laurel Mountains and rolling farmland.
The open gabled barn is donned with Parisian chandeliers, farmhouse style tables and chairs, and floor to ceiling shiplap and has a neutral aesthetic.
The June Cottage which is perfect for brides and their party to prepare the morning of the wedding, and which is also available to couples as a honeymoon suite matches that aesthetic.
Bride Kenzie had finished up nursing school and had been working hard throughout this pandemic as a new nurse while also being a momma to Callie and new arrival Evey!
Having a baby just a few months before a long-planned wedding is not for the faint of heart, but Kenzie is very laid back and goes with the flow, and this was evident as she got ready for her Big Day.
Preps were at the June Cottage at Grayson House and for her wedding day look she went with a great floral crown headpiece to compliment her gown from Essence of Australia.
After the getting ready the couple did a first look.
After the first look, we headed to the ceremony location at Jumonville.
Jumonville is a pretty big, definitely cool Christian summer camp and retreat center. And we’re talking a real camp – bunkhouses, etc.
Kenzie and Dustin share a strong faith and the Jumonville cross meant a lot to her.
We had to battle through some thick fog – the cross is usually visible for miles around but with the fog, we couldn’t see it until we pulled right up on it!
It was a bit of a challenge but I actually LOVE the results – it was more magical than a plain shot of the cross and couple together!
Kenzie had plans to do her ceremony at Green Cathedral, which is quite stunning, but due to the heavy rain, she went with her backup plan of the Whyel Chapel.
Despite the rain and fog the leaves had just started changing here in the mountains for this fall Big Day, and it was beautiful.
Then we headed back to Grayson House for the reception.
Dustin and Kenzie chose delicious BBQ and had a donut wall as a sweet surprise!
I loved all their special dances – first dance, father-daughter, mother-son, but then Dustin danced with Callie to Elvie Shane’s “My Girl” – about a dad and stepdaughter’s relationship – there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
I also loved Kenzie and her mom dancing together (Kenzie’s mom recorded the song!) and then Kenzie and Callie (and Callie sang on this recording).
This was such a beautiful wedding and we had an amazing time with this lovely couple, sweet family, and big bridal party!
