"Kelly and Niall's wedding was by far a standout for us at Inspired by This! While the rustic theme has been trending for a couple of years now, this couple made it unique. The bride is a British model and actress with the most beautiful curly hair and amazing bohemian style that was translated throughout the entire day.

Kelly married her Irish entrepreneur hubby, Niall, at the stunning Ojai Valley Inn complete with a custom wedding dress (that she co-created with Miss Tashina!) that still tops our favorites list. Her bridesmaids wore mix-and-match neutral dresses (a huge 2013 wedding trend) with a simple floral crown to top off their boho beauty. To complete the stylish group, the groom decided on a trendy gingham shirt with a brown printed vest and pant that perfectly complemented Kelly’s ensemble.

With colorful wildflowers flanking everything from the ceremony chairs to the flower girls’ heads, it seemed only right that the reception be held in the cutest little barn! We’ve seen a lot of barn weddings over the last couple of years, but this one might just take the cake. Hanging café lights, family style seating, and hay bales filled the space to make it a casual celebration that everyone could enjoy. This was one party that we sure wish we were invited to!"
