Taking it back to 2015 – when Andrea and Eric tied the knot! We L O V E D working with this sweet couple. Lynse + Kellie worked on this wedding with these two lovebirds. This couple used a T O N of rentals from Rustic Elegance, which we of course love! They rented cupcake stands, burlap table runners, mason jar beverage dispensers, vintage dinner plates, table numbers, chalkboard signs, etc. They also rented a few of our sofas to create a fun L O U N G E area for their guests. Their guests loved be able to hang out in this area and enjoy conversations with family and friends. They also used our ladder to display memories // photos of past loved ones. It was a sweet touch to remember those who weren’t able to be there on their special day! Our team placed our vintage plates delicately at each place setting to create a cute dressed up table setting. One of our favorite things to do is integrate our rentals into the weddings we work on – so much F U N!
The day began with the ladies prepping and the guys doings the same. They then headed to the church, where the couple officially could call themselves a M A R R I E D couple – yay! Before the couple left the alter, the groom took a selfie with his new wife and then preceded to walked down the aisle for the first time as husband and wife. [don’t worry, Alison Geier, the couple’s photographer, snapped a photo of this as well]! So fun!
When the groom was satisfied with the selfie quality, the wedding party, consisting of 7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen, hopped on the super cute trolley that the couple rented out for the day [such a fun + unique transport]. The wedding party arrived at the Bullard Creek Barn, where they made their grand entrance to the song “Gold Digger”. During cocktail hour and for the remainder of the night, guests enjoyed yard games including Jenga, bean bags, and ladder ball. Post cocktail hour, guests were then seated for speeches and dinner. They found their place on the old door that doubled as their seating chart [loved this!]. Liberty’s provided the Y U M M Y buffet style dinner: marinated chicken and pork, roasted red potatoes and veggies. Dinner was followed with some A M A Z I N G cupcakes by Hanisch Bakery, placed on top of our cute little cupcake stands! As an added snack, they also had a old style popcorn machine throughout the night for guests to enjoy. The couple enjoyed their first dance together as husband and wife, to the song “Inspiration” by Chicago and it was so A D O R A B L E. As the dance continued, energy F I L L E D the barn, as the guests danced the night away. To make sure that their guests were comfy, the couple provided “dancing shoes” for their guests – love this idea! Later in the evening, guests also had the option of enjoying the B O N F I R E outside on this gorgeous night.
Andrea + Eric – we hope that married life is treating you well and we loved reminiscing about your special day!
