Jenna + Michael | Backyard Wedding

Jenna + Michael were so A M A Z I N G to work with as we planned their backyard wedding. The couple opted to get married in a church and enjoyed an open air reception in the bride’s parent’s backyard. The backup plan was to use their shed, and we were worried that with all the rain during the week leading up that we would have to use the the backup plan instead of the beautiful yard. Thankfully, Mother Nature blessed the couple with the rain stopping, yard drying up, and a bright + sunny wedding day! The night before the wedding, lead planner Kellie stayed in the town of New Ulm for the evening and enjoyed dinner at a super cute little place in downtown.

The Rustic Elegance team of Kellie + Andrea arrived the morning of the big day to help set up the tables/chairs outside in the lawn with the groomsmen. After those big items were set out, we began the detail work – setting out the rest of their decor. The couple had a Jenga set as their guest book, which guests were to sign a piece [what a F U N keepsake!!]. The couple also gathered photos of their family to make a family tree display which we loved. On the back of the tree were photos of the couple over the years – so fun to see each stage together. Their seating chart was made of an old window, such a C U T E idea. For the head table, G&K Event Rentals provided beautiful wood harvest tables. After all of the decor was set up, Kellie headed to the church while Andrea held down the fort and greeted the vendors as they arrived.

The ceremony at the church was short & sweet, then guests headed to the backyard for cocktail hour and dinner. The guests used mason jars as their drinking glasses and then were able to take them home [fun idea + saves on garbage]. During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed yard games that included Hammerschlaggan. Next, it was time for a yummy buffet style dinner provided by Gutes Essen Catering and Deli. After dinner, the dancing started with the couple’s first dance to “You Make It Easy” by Jason Aldean. The dancing took place outside under the large trees in the yard.. It was one of the most romantic settings ever! The string lights hung from tree to tree enhanced the romance even more. DJ Matt from Showtime Productions kept the party going all night long under the stars!

Backyard Wedding | Marissa + Josh

Where to even start with this cute couple? Marissa + Josh and their families were so nice to work with! This was our 2nd wedding in this backyard, as we helped with Josh’s brother Justin’s wedding a few months earlier. We absolutely loved working with this family and we miss them dearly after all the time spent with them creating two, magical backyard weddings!

The tent was set up the Thursday before the wedding in the large, open yard, and We’ve Got It Covered draped the tent with fabric and lights [so P R E T T Y!]. Rustic Elegance then came back on Saturday morning ready to set up the rest of the decor, and ensuring everything was set and ready for the day. Their decor included a memory display of those loved ones who had passed, placed on top of a special wood slice that was made by grandpa. The couple opted to include a bounce house in their wedding fun as their “kid’s activity”! It was such a hit with the kids, and all of the kid’s at heart [a.k.a. the adults enjoyed it too!]. The couple also rented Rustic Elegance’s bar and barrels with table tops for their cocktail hour set up. It was perfect weather wise – a sunny, beautiful day! The large wedding party consisted of 7 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen, plus the cutest little ring bearer and flower girl combo.

Surrounded by beautifully landscaped sections of the yard, complete with special wildflowers planted by the family, the couple said their “I do’s”
in front of an arbor built by the family. The ring bearers pulled the flower girl down the aisle in a wagon, almost stealing the show before the beautiful bride walked down the aisle with her dad. For their unity symbol, the couple tied three strands to make one braid.

During cocktail hour, guests again enjoyed the bouncy house, as well as yard games. Then, it was dinner time – a pig roast buffet! The Lookout in Maple Grove brought in the full pig and served it buffet style for the guests to enjoy. It was Y U M M Y! Then, for dessert, yummy C U P C A K E S! As the sunset, you could now see the monogram brought in by the DJ that lit up the couple’s initials on the tent [so unique + cool!] and the dance had begun! The couple did their first dance to “Today” by Brad Paisley. We lit the bonfire and set out s’mores for a little late night sweet snack. At the end of the night, the couple exited with a sparkler send including flair fireworks!

Rolling Ridge | Kayla + Steve

Steve & Kayla are two of the S W E E T E S T people ever! Lead planner Kellie loved her pre-wedding meetings with this cute bride to talk about planning their big day. The couple met at a church in Rochester, and he popped the question with a video of adorable messages and notes from their closest family & friends playing as a trailer before a movie they were seeing in the theater! So adorable!

These sweethearts tied the knot at Rolling Ridge Event Center. We L O V E this space and working with the Rolling Ridge staff. They were married on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, in front of 80 of their closest family & friends. The barn interior was decorated with We’ve Got It Covered’s draping, paired with St. Cloud Floral’s flower hoops above the head table. The guest tables were decorated with RE table numbers, and votive candles spread throughout. The head table was set for the couple and their children – a fun way to include them in their big day.

The ceremony took place by the old barn foundation/rock wall, where St. Cloud Floral decorated the ceremony arch beautifully. After the short & sweet ceremony, guests headed to the barn for cocktail hour and dinner. Short Stop Custom Catering always does a fantastic job, and we love working with them. They have an amazing coffee bar that always has E V E R Y T H I N G & and impeccable service!! For dessert, the couple opted for Nothing Bundt Cakes [always a fan favorite], placed delicately on RE’s dessert stands.

Anita + Paul | Redeemed Farm

Anita + Paul were such a fun couple to work with. Lead planner Kellie actually played hockey with Anita, so this wedding definitely tugged on the heart strings. The couple actually met at a hockey game – a mutual friend had initiated a meet up and thought that it would be F U N for Paul to watch Anita play! Helping plan their wedding was so fun, and the day came up very quick.

Kellie and assistant Kristin helped with this wedding at the beautiful Redeemed Farm [one of our F A V S!] Julie + Jeff from Redeemed are so great to work with, and we love coming back to this venue time and time again! Rustic Elegance prepped the decor at the ceremony site, including a handmade cross by the couple, and the couple’s unity symbol. Guests were invited to come an hour early to enjoy drinks, yard games, and mingling on the barn grounds instead of your traditional cocktail hour.

The ceremony was beautiful – the groom’s children Patrick + Britta played the prelude violin music as guests arrived. The couple stood together at the altar and said their vows in front of their 140 guests. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a buffet dinner by Custom Catering which was O H so yummy! The barn was set up with simple decor, including the Rustic Elegance Milk Can as a card box, and a large spread of desserts including cupcakes, cookies, and long johns!

Ahnah + Ryan | Creekside Farm

Ahnah + Ryan were such a S W E E T couple. Lead planner Kellie loved her meetings with Ahnah talking about her wedding day dreams at Creekside [which is one of our F A V venues!].

The day finally came and the fall colors were G O R G E O U S! Kellie and assistant Kelly set up the ceremony site and inside the barn while the wedding party prepped for the day ahead. The ladies sported some flannels during their makeup & hair time with Lisa Reinhardt. After Ahnah’s hair and makeup was all set, the couple did a first look and their reactions were priceless! The bride sported some F U N cowboy boots, and the groomsmen’s boots consisted of shotgun shells. Alma Film & Photography snagged some more cute photos of the wedding party and couple before Rustic Elegance led the “Day of Rehearsal” before guests started to arrive.

The ceremony was set up “creekside” at Creekside – how F I T T I N G! We loved the addition of the Rustic Elegance ceremony doors and wine barrels at the entrance, surrounded by the beautiful yellow leaves. The bride’s uncle built their cross backdrop which was A M A Z I N G! Although the day was a little brisk, the guests toughed out the weather to give the couple what they had dreamed of – the most perfect outdoor ceremony. Their wedding party consisted of 8 bridesmaids, 5 groomsmen and of course, their cute pups Zeke and Pooka as the ring bearers! The couple said their promises to each other, and just like that, they were married!

Guests then headed into the barn for the reception. The tables were decorated with wood slices, antlers, burlap runners and lots of greens. The wedding party did a grand entrance back into dinner to ACDC’s Back in Black, with the couple coming in from the large, farm doors at Creekside – such a fun touch! Everyone then enjoyed a buffet, pig roast dinner by This Little Piggy, and then it was time for desserts!! The dessert display was set up with a variety of donuts, cupcakes, and a small cake for the bride + groom. The cake was to be used later for a game of “cake in the face” between the bride and groom! After dinner, the couple played a touching video about their journey together, and there was not a dry eye in the room.

It was then time to dance it out! The newly married couple started things off with, dancing to Grow Old by Florida Georgia Line, followed by the father/daughter dance to My Little Girl by Tim McGraw, and lastly, the mother/son dance to My Wish by Rascal Flatts. Guests then joined in and danced into the night! There was also a super cool photobooth van available throughout the night for guests to snap a quick photo. Pizza was provided as a late night snack, which was appreciated by everyone. As a takeaway, the couple had put together trail mix in a mason jar for their guests to take home. To top off the night, the couple exited through a tunnel of sparklers into their first night as husband and wife!!

The ceremony/reception were hosted in the same room. Lead planner Kellie + assistant Kierra were there to help set up decor and make sure the day ran smooth. The ceremony set up was simple and elegant, featuring gold chiavari chairs from Apres, and arch/draping done by Apres as well. The draping also featured G O R G E O U S greenery from Thistle and Bloom. Large lanterns lined the ceremony aisles. The entrance of the ceremony had Rustic Elegance crates, and our easel with the couple’s beautiful welcome sign. The wedding party was small, having just a Maid of Honor and Best Man, and their cute little flower girls and ring bearers [even one in a W A G O N]. The ceremony was sweet, and featured a very U N I Q U E unity symbol – combining glass pieces during the ceremony and which will melted together post wedding.

After the ceremony, the room was flipped by the Hewing staff, Rustic Elegance duo, and Kelly from Thistle and Bloom! The table decor consisted of greens, lanterns, and votives. The dessert display was one for the books – A M A Z I N G! They had a large display of different donuts, with a large donut for “cake-cutting” by the bride and groom, all from Angel Food Bakery. Breakfast was provided by the Hewing and consisted of a delicious buffet, including many gourmet breakfast food options. The couple was seated at a sweetheart table with a blush, sequin linen from Apres, and lots of gorgeous florals. After breakfast was served, guests enjoyed a photobooth that produced tons of fun photo memories.

Blair + Peter | Redeemed Farm

Blair + Peter were such a fun couple to work with throughout the planning process. The couple hosted their wedding at Redeemed Farm where we absolutely love working with the owners Julie & Jeff.

The wedding day started with the ladies getting ready in the onsite bridal suite, and the Rustic Elegance team of Kellie & Kristin prepping decor throughout the farm. After a morning full of preparation, it was time for the main event!

The groom wore an all white outfit & we loved how much that made him stand out with the beautiful bride! The gorgeous ceremony took place in the Redeemed Farm vineyard. The wedding processional consisted of the couple’s family members and their partners whom the bride and groom look up to and cherish in their lives. Blair & Peter processed down the aisle together and stood at the front to say their “I do’s”. The family also took a part in their blessing & anchoring ritual during the ceremony.

Dinner was then hosted in the lower level of the barn. They had a fajita and taco bar by K&J Catering which guests loved! After tacos, the guests headed upstairs for dessert, dancing, and to watch a video of the couple’s past photos together. Desserts were a mix of bars made by the caterers, and the bride’s mom also made a few family favorites [so S W E E T!]. Guests danced the night away before the shuttle bus brought them back to the hotel in the evening. But, before making it to the hotel, the guests stopped at Miesters on the way to get some great cheese curds to top off the night!

Backyard Wedding | Megan + Tyler

Megan + Tyler were seriously such a S W E E T couple to work with! Lead planner Kellie loved planning this backyard tent wedding. The couple was married on the groom’s family property – ceremony site down by the lake, with the tent set up a short walk away on open grass!

Leading up to the wedding, the days were rainy, but the day of the wedding turned out G O R G E O U S [sunny, and full of excitement!]. Kellie, Olivia + Kayla showed up early to help get the tent dry, prepped, and decorated along with help from the family. We’ve Got It Covered did lighting and draping in the tent – which we always love that extra touch! The ladies got ready in the main house, while the guys prepped in the guest house. Tessa June Photography was there to capture the whole day, and we loved working with her – she has such great energy! The bride did a first look with her girls before doing one with her future hubby – all reactions were P R I C E L E S S!

The ceremony set up was S T U N N I N G – guests walked from the parking area down a path that brought you to the site down by the lake. There was a beautiful handmade arch with draping + decor, an old dresser set up with the unity symbol and shepherds hooks with lanterns hung on them – truly a sight to see! The ceremony entrance featured the Rustic Elegance doors along with some floral. The wedding party processed from a point up the hill, and then the bride & her dad came in with a surprise entrance down the trail, giving them a little bit of a longer walk together. The groom’s reaction was one that all bride’s hope for + Tessa captured the best photos! After the ceremony, the bridal party headed to the garage/guest house for a toast while guests proceeded to the tent.

Cocktail hour was sweet – guests were able to grab a cocktail at the bar and snacks on the tables outside of the tent. The wedding party made their grand entrance as did the couple – complete with a ride in on a V I N T A G E car! Dinner was provided buffet style by Just North of Memphis – filled with BBQ options that we loved! Speeches were made by the bride’s twin sister & MOH, the best man, and family members. Then it was time for dancing & desserts. Nothing Bundt Cakes were spread throughout the dessert table – such a Y U M M Y set up!! The Rusted Revolver, a live band that played underneath the tent and kept the guests dancing all night long!

Backyard Wedding | Molly + Justin

Molly + Justin said their “I do’s” on the groom’s family property, and celebrated after with a huge tent reception. Lead planner Kellie loved working with the family [Justin’s brother, Josh also had a tent wedding that Rustic Elegance helped plan] and working on the charming property. It was so fun to plan a wedding for siblings – only a few months between the two!

The morning of the wedding, lead planner Kellie and assistants Kelly + Kayla arrived to help prep the tent + decor. The weather was iffy in the morning – the team watched closely and prayed for it to clear up in time for an O U T S I D E ceremony. The ladies + gentlemen got ready in their home on the property. Once it cleared up, the couple was able to do their first look at the ceremony site [complete with a G O R G E O U S homemade arch] that was sweet and intimate.

After the first look, the wedding party captured some photos inside in intermittent sprinkling of rain, and then got some W O N D E R F U L photos in the woods. Finally, it was time to make the call on having the ceremony under the tent or trusting Mother Nature not to rain any longer. 30 minutes prior to the wedding, Rustic Elegance + the couple decided to have the wedding outside, and with the help family + friends, were able to move the chairs out from the tent into ceremony formation. Without a hitch, the ceremony went perfectly, with only a slight drizzle at the beginning. The couple recessed by doing a receiving line to greet their guests, and guests moved over to the tent for cocktail hour.

The couple then took a ride on the horse drawn carriage provided by Independence Carriage [who we just love working with] and took in a moment alone before joining guests back for cocktail hour. By this time the sun was out in full force, and guests were able to enjoy horse rides until dinner [so fun + guests L O V E D it!]. Dinner was catered in by Russell’s on the Lake and was A M A Z I N G! Guests enjoyed dinner, speeches and laughter before it was time to dance. PM Enterprise DJ Luke got the party started post-dinner, and guests delighted in yummy cupcakes for dessert! As the end of the night neared, guests lined up for a sparkler send-off to wish the newlyweds fair well for the evening!

Ally + Ryan | Redeemed Farm

Planning with Ally was oh S O fun! Lead planner Kellie loved her meetings with the bride and her mom to prep for the big day at Redeemed Farm. Being one of our F A V venues for a multitude of reasons, we were so E X C I T E D for this wedding at the farm! The couple was so personable and had many cute and unique touches throughout their wedding.

The ladies prepped for the day in the amazing onsite bridal suite with Hair by Heidi and makeup with Paisley Jai. Meanwhile the Rustic Elegance team of Kellie + Kristin placed the perfectly picked out decor all over the farm. The table numbers the couple decided on were labeled as places that they had traveled to instead of the traditional numbers-so fun! Their guest book was absolutely A D O R A B L E – they used quilt squares for guests to sign that the bride’s mom would later sew into a quilt for the newlyweds. After hair and make-up and stepping into her wedding gown, Ally was ready for photos, and did a sweet first look with her dad before doing one with Ryan – both so adorable!

Finally, it was time for the ceremony. Their ceremony took place in the top or hayloft at Redeemed Farm. Pristine Floral decorated the arch with flowers and added greenery to the aisle chairs. As guests entered, they were given a rock to be used later in the ceremony for their unity symbol. The couple collected the rocks and also put a rock carain together as their symbol. Ally’s twin sister Emily did a meditation/speed painting during the ceremony that was such a fun personalized touch to the ceremony. The bride’s great aunt married the couple, and they exited the ceremony with guests blowing bubbles at the new Mr. and Mrs!

Cocktail hour was hosted in the machine shed, with easy listening music by the couple’s friend Maz. Guests enjoyed yard games which were spread throughout the beautiful grounds (that are provided by Redeemed). During cocktail hour, the guests were able to pick up a personalized note that was written for each of their guests at the wedding (even Rustic Elegance had one) – we loved how personal this was! They had passed appetizers during the cocktail hour, and while guests enjoyed this, the Redeemed Farm staff flipped the upstairs into the dance floor. The owners of Redeemed Farm Jeff & Julie are such W O N D E R F U L people, and we seriously love working with them!

Guests gathered in the lower level of the barn to enjoy the dinner prepared by Marna’s Catering. The couple had gorgeous decorated guest tables, complete with kid’s activities in mason jars for their little guests. During dinner, the couple did the “Mission Impossible” challenge and went from table to table while the Mission Impossible theme song played so they could get a photo with each guest table – such a F U N idea and nice way to see everyone! Ally’s twin sister Emily prepared a little fun song for her Maid of Honor speech which was so fun! Nothing Bundt Cakes were set up on top of Rustic Elegance dessert stands for a little sweet treat. Guests also enjoyed s’mores out by the fire. Then it was time for dancing! Adagio got the evening started with the couple’s first dance – a Tango! After that, guests danced the night away as did the happy couple.
