In the end of October 2017, Kelsey + Isaac had an A M A Z I N G wedding at Creekside Farm. Planned by Rustic Elegance team members Angie + Kellie, this wedding was definitely one for the books! Tammy, the owner at Creekside Farm, was so extremely H E L P F U L on this day, and absolutely wonderful to work with! The couple spent their morning getting ready in the respective bridal/groom suites. They then met for outdoor F I R S T L O O K photos in their unplanned winter wonderland! Kellie helped keep the bride’s dress out of the snow by standing in the back of some of the photos and holding up the bottom of her dress so it didn’t get ruined! Although the snow was unplanned, it made for G O R G E O U S photos, and Kellie noted how fun it was taking them in the snow. Photographers from Midwest LifeShots Photography, Scott + Jen, were so easy to work with and Kellie said her cheeks were sore the next day from giggling so much through the shoot!
The couple was planning for an outdoor ceremony, but to their surprise, they were blessed with S N O W [turning their fall wedding into a W I N T E R wonderland!]. Implementing the back-up plan, the Rustic Elegance team swapped their outdoor ceremony into an an intimate indoor ceremony inside of the barn. During their elegant ceremony, guests were able to enjoy the warmth from the in-floor heating that the barn had [a R A R E find]. The wedding party entered from the side of the barn, and the flower girl was also escorted down the aisle in a wagon [absolutely A D O R A B L E]. Kelsey made her grand entrance through the large barn doors at the back of the barn with her dad + guests were tearing up at the beautiful moment [and Kellie may have shed a tear or two, too!]. Kelsey + Isaac also had a unique unity tree planting during their ceremony, which was S U P E R special [we loved this idea!].
After the ceremony, we flipped the barn into a very special reception venue with the help of Tammy and the Creekside Farm staff. Distinctive Catering & Events did a fantastic job prepping the buffet food for the night, and even cooked up the late night snack of wood fire pizzas [so D E L I C I O U S]. For dessert, guests enjoyed Dippin Dots and Nothing Bundt Cakes [Y U M]. After dinner, guests enjoyed a slideshow of the couple on a screen provided by Creekside [what a F U N way to look back on memories of the couple!]. As the night progressed and the dancing started, DJ Dan from Adagio DJ Entertainment had the guests dancing the night away, and as always, is so F U N to work with! Rustic Elegance cleaned up the reception area and packed the trailer back up with decor at the end of the night. We took home the flower arrangements, per the couples request, and donated them the following morning to Golden Living Center in Wayzata, which created lots of S M I L E S!
Kelsey + Isaac, we had an absolute B L A S T working on your wedding with you two. Rustic Elegance is so blessed to work with couples as S W E E T as you two, and we wish you the best with married life!
