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.

After the couple was officially married, guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the machine shed at the farm. Their cocktail hour also included a hot dog stand provided by Natedogs – A M A Z I N G & delicious! Guests also enjoyed a live bluegrass band, Bernie King and Guilty Pleasures.

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!

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.

Jenna + Luke | Creekside Farm

Jenna + Luke were such a fun couple to plan with! They happily shared their engagement pictures with us that we utilized on social media [gladly because they were A D O R B S!]. Lead planner Kellie loved finalizing their details with them for their wedding at Creekside [one of our favorite venues], and finally, the day was here!

Their wedding was themed “Alice and Wonderland” and featured fun decor throughout the wedding that followed this theme, including their tablescapes, programs and signs [“Eat Me” dessert sign, “Toast Me” s’mores sign] – love! They had colored votives and loose jewels spread throughout the guest tables, paired with black charger plates. As Rustic Elegance prepped decor around the B E A U T I F U L barn, the ladies & gents got ready for the big day!

When it was time for the ceremony, the bridal party featuring the 3 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen and 2 sweet little flower girls got ready to walk down the aisle. The S T U N N I N G bride walked down the aisle to “Cannon in D”, to meet her groom who was just seeing her for the first time [so C U T E]. Their unity symbol was a lock, signifying their love for one another no matter what the circumstance. And just like that, they were M A R R I E D! The happy couple recessed out of the ceremony to “So Happy Together”, the most fitting song for the occasion!

Cocktail hour featured appetizers from This Little Piggy [absolutely L O V E working with them!] including meatballs and bruschetta – both are fan favorites. After guests were seated, the wedding party made their grand entrance to “I’m a Believer” by The Monkeys. Following this entrance was the buffet style dinner by This Little Piggy – Y U M! After speeches, Midwest Sound DJ Entertainment started the dancing. The first dance was adorable, and then the father daughter dance to “Brown Eyed Girl” was very fitting as the bride has brown eyes. Rustic Elegance helped cut the sheet cakes for dessert and set out the s’mores station which had a few chocolate options – Y E S please!

Megan + Justin | Rum River Barn and Vineyard

Megan + Justin tied the knot on a cool September day at Rum River Barn and Vineyard. This couple was so F U N to plan with. On the morning of the wedding, the ladies prepped their hair and makeup with SoCoJo Artistry, while the boys stepped into their tuxes. While the wedding party got ready, the florist [who was a family friend of the couple], worked on prepping the guest tables under the tent. The tables were set with stunning white linens, and white plates, paired with brightly colored florals – L O V E this look! The couple & wedding party of 10 [plus a cute ring bearer flower girl crew] took some time pre-ceremony to take photos with Kokal Photography. We’ve Got It Covered draped the barn ceremony backdrop which looked S T U N N I N G. Rustic Elegance also helped prep the decor in the barn for the ceremony, and finally, it was T I M E!

The ceremony began with the wedding party processing up by the stairs, and then the bride and her dad made a G R A N D entrance through the back barn doors, while “Marry Me” by Train played. It’s safe to say that at that point, there was not a dry eye in the room! The couple opted for a traditional candle unity symbol. Sealed with a kiss – they were married.

Then, it was time for cocktail hour followed by dinner. We absolutely L O V E working with Custom Catering by Short Stop – they are so easy to work with and offer such Y U M M Y food choices. . Dinner for Megan + Justin was served family style among the guests to enjoy. After dinner, the cake was served to guests by Short Stop. Then – it was time to get the party started with Blue Water King Band [whom we A D O R E!]. The weather cooperated and the couple’s wish came true – having their first dance out on the barn deck! They danced to “Say You Won’t Let Go” and after that, the rest of the guests gathered to dance the night away.

Day of Coordinator, Megan + Justin, Rum River Vineyard_1103.jpg

Megan + Justin: we are so T H R I L L E D for you two to start your life as a married couple. We loved being your day of coordinators and are so excited to see what the future holds for you both! Shout out to Kokal Photography for sharing the A M A Z I N G pictures with us for the blog!

Barbara + Jesse | Barn at Dunvilla

Another T H R O W B A C K wedding for you all – we just can’t get enough! Barbara and Jesse had the sweetest church wedding followed by a barn reception. The Rustic Elegance team of Kellie and Kelly worked this wedding together and spent the night in Detroit Lakes [they L O V E getting away for little road trips which include quality time paired with A M A Z I N G weddings!].

The day started out with the ladies + men preparing separately before the first look. The bride and groom laid eyes on each other for the first time at the Barn at Dunvilla [also the reception location] and it was S T U N N I N G! Full of nature and greenery – we couldn’t get enough of this sweet couple! After the pre-wedding pictures with Abby Anderson Photography, the wedding party headed over to Rollag Lutheran Church for the ceremony [the cutest church E V E R!]. The groom’s niece and nephew played their parts as flower girl and ring bearer [+ were O H so adorable]. Then, the bride was escorted down the aisle by her mom and dad, where she met her groom. After they said their “I do’s”, everyone dispersed to the barn for cocktail hour, featuring an appetizer buffet including, wings, cheese + crackers, and salmon [Y U M]! Cocktail hour also featured the guest favors – can koozies with the couples name on it – pink for girls and camo for the gents!

When it was time for the wedding party to do their grand entrance, the song “Jesse’s Girl” [how fitting!] played as the bridal party joined the rest of the guests for dinner. Dinner included a plated salad, accompanied by a buffet dinner from Quality Catering. There was even a special buffet for the K I D S including mac and cheese and chicken fingers. For dessert, Kellie + Kelly cut the cake and served it to the guests + had a B L A S T doing it! Then, it was time for D A N C I N G! Royalty Entertainment got the party started and guests were dancing the night away. For the late night snack, Zorbaz brought in a pile of pizzas – guests were loving it!

Andrea + Eric | Bullard Creek Barn

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.

Lauren + Steve | Green Acres Barn

While some of the venues that we go to are farther outside of the cities, Green Acres Barn is situated seemingly close, located in Eden Prairie, MN. Lauren + Steve celebrated their S P E C I A L day at this location and Rustic Elegance was there to prep and help flip the space and had the B E S T time doing it [and helping out these two lovebirds!].

At Green Acres Barn, the lower level is filled with vintage items, including jukeboxes, older framed photos, and a small fountain. On this level, we set out place cards for guests to grab as they came in prior to the ceremony. Lauren + Steve also opted to have their guest book + card table near the door, capturing guests attention as they walked in [they got LOTS of signatures in their guest book – we loved seeing guests add their special note!]. For the wedding party pictures, this group braved the windy day and took S T U N N I N G pictures by a lake nearby. Studio Twelve:52 was able to capture these amazing memories, while still ensuring that the wedding party looked great for the ceremony. Prior to the ceremony itself, the wedding party hid in the silo that Green Acres has flipped into a wine cellar. It’s G O R G E O U S in there, and even features a little trap door.

On the upstairs level, the set-up for the ceremony was simple, yet extremely elegant. The venue set up the ceremony chairs, creating a perfect aisle for Lauren to walk down, walking towards the man of her D R E A M S. After a ceremony with the help of officiant Matt Berdahl, the guests were guided back to the downstairs level for a cocktail hour while the upstairs level was flipped by the Green Acres crew and catering staff from Sterling. Rustic Elegance worked on adding the finishing touches, such as the centerpieces, setting up the head table, and of course, setting up the dessert table. The centerpieces were simple white floral arrangements accompanied by white pumpkins, set on top of a square cloth napkin. The head table was abundant with floral from Lauren’s aunt, pulling in romantic tones for this October wedding. They also added a cute little addition of wooden names for each plate at the head table [we L O V E D this idea]. Lastly, the set-up for the dessert table was accompanied by Rustic Elegance dessert stands and a variety of cupcake flavors from Nadia’s Cakes. As if this couple wasn’t sweet enough [as sweet as the cupcakes even], they ordered one cupcake specifically for Kellie, her favorite kind of Vanilla Vanilla [how T H O U G H T F U L you two – thank you!!].

The rest of the evening ran smoothly and the DJ Andrew from Three Six Sound kept the crowd engaged. The bride, groom, as well as their friends and family were dancing the night away!

Lauren + Steve – thank you for having Rustic Elegance be apart of your first day of forever together! We are so thankful for the opportunity and L O V E D working with the both of you sweet lovebirds [Kellie will also miss the planning meetings that consisted of The Lion’s Tap hamburger + fries… D E L I C I O U S]!

Tiffany + Derek – where to start with this G O R G E O U S wedding! This couple was a D R E A M to work with as we helped plan their wedding for 250 guests. We loved digging into the planning process with these two in order to ensure that their day ran smoothly.

The wedding party had 5 friends/family members on each side [+ one of the groomsmen was Derek’s twin!]. They spent their morning getting ready in their separate areas, and met up to take some pictures with Sophisticated Grace Photography. We were graced with some R A I N in the afternoon, so had to implement our back up plan. Luckily, they rented umbrella’s from Rustic Elegance, which created some G R E A T photo opportunities as the day went on. Even the photographer, April from Sophisticated Grace Photography was prepared with plastic over her head/camera in order to capture the memories that she wanted to! The Rustic Elegance team of Angie + Kellie continued to work the set-up [despite the rain] with the A M A Z I N G help of the Joan + Britni from Legacy Hill Farm. The couple also rented barrels and a door from Rustic Elegance, and we assisted with the set up of a S U P E R fun popcorn snack display – which included a Chicago Mix + Salted popcorn in apple baskets.

Since it was raining outside, the ceremony took place underneath the pavilion which turned out P E R F E C T L Y even with the rain! After the wedding party made their way down the aisle, Molly [the bride’s niece] and Hadie [the groom’s niece] stole the show as the [most adorable] flower girls, followed by Lawton [the groom’s nephew] as the ring bearer. It was now time for Tiffany to make her grand debut. She was escorted down the aisle by her dad, to the song “When I Say I Do” by Matthew West. The couple had a beautiful ceremony, and for their unity symbol, opted to have two colors of sand and each poor a layer of their colors in a frame [F U N keepsake for the couple!].

After the ceremony concluded, guests were seated for the dinner. This Little Piggy provided a roasted pork buffet [Y U M!] and also an ice cream bar which included FUN toppings! The couple also had cupcakes for dessert  from Top Tier Delights, which we placed at each table on wood slices that were made by the groom [love this idea!]. Throughout dinner, the couple opted for a “kiss-for-a-kiss” when the guests would clink their glasses + we loved every time this happened!

By this time, the rain had cleared and guests were ready to D A N C E the night away! We loved working with DJ Tony from Showtime Entertainment, and he kept guests dancing all night long. Their first dance was to Hunter Hayes “Wanted” + they looked so in L O V E while dancing with one another. The couple also decided to include the “married couples dance” to honor the longest married couple, which was such a C U T E touch to a special night. As the night went on, the newlyweds also played the “shoe game” which led to some great laughs from their guests. Guests were also able to finally enjoy the outdoors, and even a bonfire with S ‘ M O R E S!

Tiffany + Derek – we L O V E D working with the two of you! Your love for one another is inspiring and we hope that married life is nothing short of M A G I C A L!

Maggie + Corey | Historic John P Furber Farm

Maggie + Cory had a D R E A M Y day in October of 2016 – and we absolutely A D O R E D working with them to plan this special day! Maggie and her mom Lauri met with Rustic Elegance lead planner Kellie over coffee a few times, and these meetings were never without L A U G H T E R and smiles.

When the Rustic Elegance team arrived, it was time to get to W O R K! The couple rented a few items from Rustic Elegance, including a ladder which was used as a tribute with photos of passed loved ones. We prepped the barn with their centerpieces which were B E A U T I F U L wooden flower boxes with stunning florals from KMB Floral, along with burlap and lace squares, and a G O L D table number. We’ve Got It Covered added their special touches with a lace overlay and gold chargers at the head table, a fabric backdrop behind the bride and groom, and string lights! In place of a traditional guest book, the couple decided on a wood pallet sign for guests to leave a note on – and it turned out S O cute! They also used a cute little picnic basket for their cards – a F U N touch to their decor. While the Rustic Elegance team was finished setting up, the bride and her ladies enjoyed champagne as they prepped for the day in the A M A Z I N G bridal suite, while the guys prepped in the “groom’s suite”. Once they were all ready, they took some pictures with Justin Mark Photography before heading over to the church.

The couple was married at the Resurrection Lutheran Church, and then headed back over to the Historic John P Furber Farm for their reception. Approximately 315 guests filled the barn, full of fun, food, and D A N C I N G! Appetizers were passed during cocktail hour which were Y U M M Y. The wedding party did their grand entrance down the stairs to “Drink In My Hand” by Eric Church – and it was O H so fun! This Little Piggy provided the dinner buffet, and always provides G R E A T food and service! We also placed dessert bars and cookies on each table, provided by “ We Cater To You”, for a S W E E T treat. After dinner, Maggie’s dad gave such a S W E E T speech about the couple.Day of Coordinator, Historic John P Furber Farm, Maggie + Corey_0732.jpg

As dinner and speeches concluded, DJ Dan from Adagio started playing music and the dance floor was a sea of guests the rest of the night. He is A W E S O M E to work with, and always does a great job of keeping the party going all night! For a late night snack, the couple brought in Carbone’s Pizza – guests L O V E D this added touch. At the very end of the night, Rustic Elegance cleaned and packed up all of the decor, ensuring that friends, family, and of course the N E W L Y W E D S could enjoy the rest of their night worry free! The couple also was generous enough to donate their flowers at the end of the night, and we took them to a nursing home the following day, which always guarantees S M I L E S.

Maggie + Corey – your wedding day was truly a D R E A M, and we enjoyed every second of it. We hope that married life is all that you hoped it would be + more!

Kaitlin + Matt | Wasner Barn

We absolutely A D O R E D working with Kaitlin and Matt on their wedding. They ended up deciding on T O N S of Rustic Elegance rentals including some furniture, signs, etc. [they even rented the cute directional sign that Rustic Elegance owner Kellie’s 91 year old grandpa hand painted – so C U T E!].

The day started with the ladies prepping their hair and makeup, and getting into the G O R G E O U S dresses. The men got in their suits, suspenders, and bow ties, and were ready to take photos with one of our F A V photographer’s, Jeannine, working for Bellagala [who is so much FUN to work with!]. The wedding party consisted of 7 ladies and 6 men which made for a group full of laughs and S M I L E S as the day went on. While pictures were being taken, the tent was being set up with simple + sweet centerpieces that included pictures of the couple, blue mason jars with Baby’s Breath, candles [made by the couple], and old B O O K S that they had collected. The tables were set with vintage plates for dinner and guests had the option of using mason jars to drink out of – we L O V E D this combo. We also helped set up a C A N D Y bar that was a hit with the guests later in the night.

Kaitlin and Matt got married at a beautiful church and then guests headed over to Wasner Barn for the reception! Guests were able to play yard games in the large grassy area of the barn throughout the evening. For dinner, Divine Swine Catering served up phenomenal food [as always], followed by Y U M M Y desserts from Cake Walk. After dessert – it was time to get the party S T A R T E D! This couple lucked out with a G O R G E O U S night, so they were able to have their dance outside under the stars, with the sweet addition of string lights – so pretty [Jeannine captured some great night photos of this]! They also had a bonfire for guests to enjoy and a late night snack of S ‘ M O R E S! As the night came to a close, the Rustic Elegance team cleaned up all of the guest tables and decor so that the couple could enjoy their first night as a married couple.
