Anne + John | Daly Park

We wanted to throw a little T H R O W B A C K wedding your way for our blog this week. Anne + John got married on 8.6.16, and we are still a little [a.k.a. a lot] obsessed with how cute this couple was, and how breathtaking their wedding was.

Anne + John celebrated their special day at Daly Park. This land was previously owned by the bride’s grandfather, which he then donated to the city to start a park [how S W E E T is this?!]. The ironic part is the last name of the man that Anne fell in love with… Mr. John Park! So, Anne + John Park got married at Daly Park [you can’t make this stuff up!].

Kellie [the F A N T A S T I C owner of Rustic Elegance] met the couple for the first time during a snowstorm at the campground and she brought her dog Skyler along for the ride. Anne + John had their dog Roxy along as well, and the two pups became friends quickly. There’s nothing like puppy love! After meeting with Anne + John, Kellie knew it was a perfect fit and couldn’t wait to dig deep into helping these two plan their wedding day.

The day of the wedding was P E R F E C T! Even Roxy, the pup, was ready for the day with her nails painted. Anne + John were married in a beautiful ceremony at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, and following their “I do’s”, moved the party over to a H U G E tent reception at Daly Park. With about 300 guests, the night’s festivities kicked off! Absolute Catering was great to work with – timely, easy to communicate with, and E X C E L L E N T food. Anne had a wardrobe change into an absolutely gorgeous traditional Korean dress – we were in A W E. The night was surrounded by friends, family, and great music from the Bluewater Kings Band [we L O V E them!]. Towards the end of the night, a little Irish-type of dancing broke out and it was so fun to watch. To cap off the night, the Rustic Elegance team spent some time around the bonfire with the newlyweds. Post bonfire, the Rustic Elegance team of Kellie, Lynse & Kelly camped at the campground overnight and had a B L A S T [adventurous ladies!].

Anne + John were married on the same date that Anne’s parents were married, so the morning following their reception, they had an anniversary celebration brunch under the same tent that was used for the reception [talk about S M A R T!]. Anne + John were so welcoming, and invited the Rustic Elegance team to attend the brunch as well [how do we get so lucky with clients? really!].

Anne + John – your wedding was one that we at Rustic Elegance will always cherish, and we are so T H A N K F U L to have had the opportunity to work with you two as your Day of Coordinator. We hope that married life is amazing, just like the two of you!

Ashley + Jack | John P. Furber Farm

We LOVED helping Ashley + Jack with their Day of Coordinating at the the Historic John P. Furber Farm! They are just the sweetest couple! We had so much fun chatting about their wedding details over coffee [our favorite way to plan weddings!]

Their day started off with all nine bridesmaids getting ready in the beautiful bridal suite wearing super cute matching robes [with mimosas in hand of course]. As Ashley walked through the ceremony doors [rented from Rustic Elegance], We saw Jack shed a tear as he saw his bride for the first time that day. That made us tear up just a little also! Ashley + Jack filled the Furber Barn with 350 of their fav people!. A’BriTin Catering handled this guest count like a champ! We then placed an entire cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes [which also happens to be our personal fav] on each of the tables for guests to enjoy (thats a lot of cake)! The night continued with lots of dancing fun, how could you leave the dance floor with Adagio playing their good beats?

Ashley + Jack we want to sincerely thank you for including Rustic Elegance in your special day! We loved meeting you two and wish you the best!! We will definitely miss our coffee planning dates!

We love helping with day of coordinating at Bloom Lake Barn, one of our fav rustic venues!! Ally + Gabe’s wedding was nothing short of perfect.

What a pleasure it was to work with so many amazing vendors that made this day happen. And a special thanks to Redeemed Farm for letting us use your STUNNING space to pull this off!

Mel + Chris, Bloom Lake Barn

Mel + Chris were such a great couple to work with! The planning meetings with them were so much fun.. we met at a brewery, and then for brunch, and nailed down the details for their big day. After lots of planning, the day finally arrived. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous! They even had their pup be a part of their special day. They had so many cute touches to their wedding – Mel had made the cookies for their late night snack, the couple didn’t see each other before the ceremony, the photos they had hanging on the wall were old wedding photos of past relatives. And their dessert bar by The Thirsty Whale had guests oooh-ing and ahh-ing. Congratulations Mel + Chris… what an amazing day!

Emily + Nick, Rolling Ridge Wedding & Event Center

Emily + Nick’s wedding was so much fun! The ceremony and reception both took place at Rolling Ridge Wedding and Event Center in St. Joseph, MN. It was a beautful day and a beautiful wedding! Emily had her mom as the officiant, which gave the ceremony a special touch. They had Michael Shynes play the guitar and sing at the ceremony, the cocktail hour, and their first dance – it took people’s breath away – he was amazing! It was such a beautiful evening, they ended up moving the DJ outside and having music and dancing on the patio. It was so much fun to work with Emily + Nick, we couldn’t have asked for a better day!

We also got to work with amazing vendors for this wedding…we love working with this team!

We loved working with Kristin + Kevin to help their dream wedding come to life.

Lyndsey + Derrick | Backyard Wedding

Looking back at this wedding brings back so many wonderful memories…What a picture perfect, well-planned wedding! Rustic Elegance had the pleasure of working with this wonderful couple helping their vision come to life. Lyndsey and Derrick had always dreamed of a backyard wedding at his father’s home where Derrick grew up, in Isanti, MN. This beautiful cottage-inspired home made the perfect setting for their special day. After months of narrowing down details and logistics, the day finally arrived!
