A Summer Barn Wedding with DIY Details via House by Hoff

A Summer Barn Wedding

Isn’t it crazy that summer is almost over?!  The time has flown, and I can’t believe it’s been several months since I photographed a beautiful barn wedding back in June.  Barn weddings are my favorite!  There’s just something awesome about mixing rustic and elegant details together… The bride and her family DIYed many of the wedding […]

House by Hoff American Farmhouse Feature 7

Our Home Feature in American Farmhouse Magazine!

We all have secret hopes and dreams, right?  Ones that seem a bit unattainable and out-of-reach. Mine has always been to see my home in the pages of a magazine. I have no idea where this dream came from.  No idea when it really formulated, but it became a real goal of mine.  So, to […]

Light Up the Night 1

Old Door 2 Unwatermarked

New Old Door

We can ask my sister to confirm, but I think when I saw this old door at a garage sale a few weeks ago, I did a funny-looking walk/run from the car to the lady selling it.  I mean, c’mon.  You know you would’ve done the same thing.  When you spot a gem like this, […]
