Paige + Devin | Backyard Wedding

Paige + Devin were such a fun couple and we loved being a part of their wedding day! Lead planner Kellie enjoyed meeting with Paige and her mom, Joleen, prior to the wedding, to nail down all the details! The couple got married on the groom’s family property, which was S T U N N I N G. This was a 3-day event for the Rustic Elegance team! Lead planner Kellie was onsite for the set up on Thursday, Friday for the rehearsal/grooms dinner and then the main event on Saturday.

On the big day, the couple prepped with their bridal party, while the Rustic Elegance team of Kellie, Kristin, Andrea and Olivia prepped all the decor. The ceremony took place lakeside on the family property. A giant arch was placed at the front, and ceremony doors at the back of the grassy field [both made by the talented groom!]. The wedding had a large guest count, with 450 people for the ceremony, and 200 more guests joined for the dance – W O W!

When it was finally time for the ceremony, the wedding party walked elegantly down the aisle, followed by a grand entrance by the bride and her dad through the ceremony doors [and great accent Rustic Elegance wine barrels]. The couple did a tree planting for their unity symbol. After they were finally pronounced husband and wife, it was time to head to the barn for a big party.

The reception took place in their huge pull barn. The barn was transformed by the Rustic Elegance team into a pretty amazing reception space! The groom made 2 bars, wine barrel cocktail tables and a wood pallet backdrop for behind the head table. The backdrop was also decorated with various candles, and a pop of floral. The florists decked the place out with hanging greens above the dance floor and head table – it looked so G O R G E O U S! Along with the floral touches, We’ve Got It Covered draped the entire barn, and hung sparkling chandeliers throughout. They also brought in pink linens, lace table runners, and napkins! The reception space housed lots of Rustic Elegance rental items as well, including wood farm tables for the head table, sofas for a sitting area, and the dessert table/stands.

Instead of a traditional guest book, the couple decided to have everyone sign fabric squares, which would later be made into a quit for the happy couple. Their favors consisted of a seed packet that were displayed in the Rustic Elegance wheel barrel. After dinner, the couple took a little time to themselves around sunset, and embarked on a paddle boat ride – seriously was like a scene out of the N O T E B O O K + the photos from this are perfect! When the boat ride was over, the wedding party greeted them with a sparkler entrance back to the dance to get the party started! Dinner and dancing ensued, and were later followed by a fireworks display.

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.

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!!

Chelsea + Brandon | Hewing Hotel

Chelsea + Brandon had the most beautiful Sunday morning brunch wedding, hosted at the Hewing Hotel! Kellie loved meeting with Chelsea leading up to the big day – she had such a vision and we absolutely loved helping that turn into a reality!Day of Coordinator, Hewing Hotel, Chelsea + Brandon_1528.jpg

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.
