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!

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.
