Jen + Jim have the sweetest L O V E for each other + we absolutely adored helping them plan their special day. The Rustic Elegance team of Angie, Kim and Kellie arrived on site at the groom’s parents house, which was where this special couple would be married. While the couple prepped for the B I G day, the team set up their beautiful outdoor ceremony site, and decor inside their tent for the reception. The couple headed out to do some pre-ceremony pictures with Breanna Bisek Photography, and even included their pups for a few photos! The guys wanted a picture with some shotguns – so there’s that too!
Although we weren’t sure on what Mother Nature was thinking – she held out for the ceremony and T H E N decided to pour – we were thankful that she decided to wait so these two could say their I do’s outside as planned! The ceremony was B E A U T I F U L. The flower girl [niece of the groom] + ring bearers [nephews of the bride] took the C U T E N E S S level up a notch. Guests quickly shuffled from the outdoor site to the tent for their dinner [+ to keep dry].
Divine Swine provided a slow roasted turkey, a whole pig [carved on site], pasta, au gratin potatoes and slivered almond green beans [Y U M M Y]. During dinner, the couple had the sweetest idea – guests could ring a bell and for every $10 donation they would kiss. All of the donated money went to the ALS Colon Cancer Foundation – seriously the B E S T idea ever! After the yummy cupcakes were enjoyed for dessert, it was time to dance the night away! The couple danced to the song “To Make You Feel My Love” by Garth Brooks. After the traditional dances, Instant Request DJ, took it away, and guests danced all night long [+ even danced the rain away].
Jen + Jim – we loved everything about being a part of your S P E C I A L day! Thanks for including Rustic Elegance! We hope married life is nothing short of perfect.
