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.

Charlotte + Jonathan | Green Acres Event Center

Charlotte & Jonathan where do we even start with this sweet couple? Lead coordinator Kellie planned with Charlotte and her mom and loved helping them envision the perfect wedding day for the couple while Jonathan completed training for the military. The couple tied the knot at Green Acres Event Center, a beautiful barn situated in Eden Prairie [who we love working with!].

The August wedding date was finally here, and it was a B E A U T I F U L day! The couple opted to have their ceremony at the outside location at Green Acres surrounded by the trees & nature. Decor included the Rustic Elegance ceremony doors with double barrels at the entrance. 101 Market brought gorgeous floral for the doors and barrels making for a S T U N N I N G entrance for the wedding party to walk down the aisle through. Finally, it was ceremony time & guests watched Charlotte enter with her father gracefully down the aisle as she met the love of her life at the front of the podium. In a short & sweet ceremony, the couple tied the knot with their closest family and friends, and Spicy Meatball Photography was there to capture all of the special moments.

On the inside of the barn, the set-up crew at Green Acres placed linens and dinnerware while the Rustic Elegance team placed decor throughout. The dessert table was A M A Z I N G with treats and a cake from Sweet Assurance. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour and passed appetizers outside before heading in for the buffet style dinner from Deco Catering. After an amazing dinner & F A B speeches, it was time to dance the night away! Spicy Meatball did photography, DJing and a photo booth for this wedding and did a G R E A T job with all of these duties!

Jaclyn + Elling | Rotschild Pavilion

Jaclyn + Elling’s wedding was so much F U N to plan! Lead planner Kayla loved meeting with the bride at coffee shops around the downtown Minneapolis area, talking about wedding plans and getting so excited for their special day. Jaclyn + Elling selected a location in Wasau, WI to tie the knot (approximately a 3 hour drive from the Twin Cities). The Rustic Elegance team took a road trip to Wasau the day before the ceremony to run the wedding rehearsal.

The morning of the wedding, Rustic Elegance began prepping at the reception location, the Rotschild Pavilion. The venue was very unique – it used to be an old roller skating rink! The guest tables were set with white linens, vases with twinkle lights, and greenery. Kase Styles brought in the greenery for the guest tables, along with stunning tall floral arrangements for the head table – L O V E D working with them! The bouquet for the bride featured protea flowers that were as big as a face! The weather for the day was a little iffy, raining on and off all morning. We made the call to have the wedding outside because the outdoor venue that they selected was on top of a M O U N T A I N! Rib Mountain State park was where the ceremony was held, in an amphitheater that overlooked the whole city of Wasau. The site was decked out with a rug and floral arch from Kase Styles – it was simply stunning! The rain held off long enough for the couple to get some pre-ceremony pictures with the ever so talented Natural Intuition Photography, and the ceremony went on with only a few drops of rain – which many say is L U C K Y!

After the ceremony ended, guests headed to the Rotschild Pavilion for some appetizers, while the wedding party took a party bus around the town. After the wedding party arrived and made their grand entrance, Urban Street Bistro prepared an extravagant buffet style dinner that featured some A M A Z I N G food that was well received by all guests. After some amazing speeches by family, DJ Brian from The Brian West Show started pumping up the party! The newlyweds were sent off at the end of the night with a cute sparkler send off, ready to begin their life as a married couple!

Melissa + Matt | Dellwood Country Club

Our lead coordinator, Kayla, had SO much for planning with Melissa + Matt in the months prior to their wedding. Being a very organized person, Melissa would come to the planning meetings with her “book of knowledge” – a binder that included everything needed to know about her big day! The couple decided to tie the knot at Dellwood Country Club, a beautifully situated venue in Dellwood, MN.

When the day was finally here, the Rustic Elegance team arrived and unpacked the decor boxes and set-up. The ladies prepped for the day with Lady Vamp Artistry rocking their makeup. The tables were decorated with a variety of centerpieces, including lighthouse figurines [the groom is a huge light house fan] which we L O V E D that they incorporated this into their day! The ceremony was set up with minimal decor – wine barrels at the entrance with fall mums, a few memory photos of loved ones, and blanket scarves to keep guests warm throughout the ceremony. After all the set up and preparation, it was finally time to tie the knot!

The ring bearer drove down the center of the aisle in a motorized remote control fire truck, which was O H – S O adorable! It was really fitting due to the groom being a firefighter [and another firetruck came later for pictures!]. After everyone had their smiles and giggles from the ring bearer, it was time for the main event. Melissa + her dad made their grand entrance as they entered down the deck staircase of the Country Club, with Matt watching from the front. They opted to not do a pre-ceremony first look, so this was the first time he was seeing his beautiful bride. After a short + sweet ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the Fireside Room before filling into the main dining room for dinner.

The wedding party was seated at a harvest table in the middle of the room, surrounded by round guest tables throughout. Dinner was prepared and served by the Dellwood catering service, with desserts being brought in by Hyvee [which were amazing P I E S!]. After dinner, loving speeches and desserts, it was time to dance! The DJ turned up the music and guests were on the dance floor for the rest of the evening. The couple also played the “shoe game” which made for great fun for all!

Haley + Makkonen | Gardens of Castle Rock

Oh where to start with this S W E E T couple! Haley + Makkonen dug into their planning process with lead planner Kellie and the outcome was the most P E R F E C T day! This couple’s love story goes all the way back to high school [high school sweethearts – L O V E it]. Their wedding took place at the Gardens of Castle Rock, an A M A Z I N G outdoor venue that we love being at! We’ve Got It Covered came early in the morning do some G O R G E O U S draping under the tent and brought along their deep purple linens for the guest tables. The ladies in the wedding party prepped for the day in the newly renovated bridal suite, and the guys arrived a little later just in time for their first look! Jeannine Marie photographed this sweet couple and their bridal party throughout the day, doing a F A N T A S T I C job as always. Rustic Elegance prepped the guest tables, place cards, dessert table, and other decor throughout the space, and finally it was ceremony time!

The ceremony was held under the Lath House at the Gardens of Castle Rock. The site was S T U N N I N G featuring a arch of gorgeous flowers provided by Studio B Floral, entrance doors provided by us, a pink aisle runner and the natural beauty of the venue. After the ceremony, it was time for cocktail hour- guests enjoyed refreshments and appetizers by Mintahoe catering, and also enjoyed touring the beautifully manicured grounds and gardens. Guests then moved under the tent to their beautiful decorated dinner tables with purple linens, burlap purple runners, white napkins, gold chairs, and floral centerpieces from Studio B Floral. The newlyweds sat at a sweetheart table – a cute touch! Mintahoe served an amazing dinner, and speeches came next, where there was not a dry eye in the room for most of them. We love hearing old & fun memories about the couples in the speeches! The rest of the evening was full of dancing and love radiating from the happily married couple.

Kristin + Jason | Furber Farm

Kirsten + Jason tied the knot in June at the Furber Farm + we L O V E D everything about planning with them! The ladies got their hair & makeup done by Shelly Blackstone, and then arrived at the venue in a big, P I N K party bus. They then set up shop in the gorgeous bridal suite to get dressed for the day. The bridal suite at Furber Farm is amazing! While the ladies continued prepping, the guys arrived and headed to the groom’s room. They enjoyed playing some card games before getting into their suits. Once both parties were ready, it was first look time! Dodge Creative set up their first look on the deck at the farm, despite the crazy weather that day [a little bit of rain & humidity]. After the couple had their first look, the wedding party joined for a few pre-ceremony photos outside when the rain let up.

Meanwhile, Rustic Elegance was busy setting up the decor for the day. The couple decided to have their ceremony indoors due to the humidity and potential threat of rain, so we set up for the ceremony where the head table would later be placed. They had a great wood folding backdrop, paired with Rustic Elegance wine barrels. Cindy’s Floral Creations brought in S T U N N I N G arrangements, including accent pieces for on top the barrels. They also provided G O R G E O U S greenery with purple accents for the head table! Other prep for the day included setting out the memory photos, placed on the Rustic Elegance ladder, arranging the place cards, and setting out the handmade card box on the gift table [which was made out of a wooden stump!].

Finally, it was time for the couple to get married. The wedding party entered from the first floor and processed up to the ceremony site. Then the bride, escorted by her uncle, made their grand entrance via the staircase from the second level. Officiant Matt Berdahl went through the ceremony with ease, doing a great job as always. The couple opted to do a unity symbol, with three different sand colors, and included the groom’s daughter in their ceremony. A kiss sealed the deal, and then it was cocktail hour!

Guests enjoyed drinks while the room was being flipped for dinner. Distinctive Catering did a F A N T A S T I C job keeping up with the large crowd for the plated meal (240 guests) & the food was so T A S T Y, too! Desserts were provided by Distinctive as well and consisted of cute & yummy cupcakes. After dinner and speeches, DJ Kelsey (rock star) from Adagio started off the night with the formal dances, and kept the party going all night long! Distinctive also provided late night wood fired pizzas that were definitely a hit with the guests.Day of Coordinator, Kristin + Jason, Furber Farm_1161.jpg

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.

Laura + Will | Kamp Kenwood

Laura + Will met through the “Coffee Meets Bagel” app [how cool is that!] and felt an instant connection. Their love for one another grew quickly, and then Will popped the question – and that meant it was time to plan the big day! Lead planner Kellie met with Laura and her mom, Sue, throughout the planning process and loved talking with these two ladies about their wedding ideas.

Their wedding took place at Kamp Kenwood – a gorgeous outdoor rustic venue located in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. It featured a S T U N N I N G lakeside ceremony site, and large dining area for the reception. Since the couple met via Coffee Meets Bagel, the company contributed money to their wedding, which bought adorable camp cups as guest favors! One [of many] unique touches the couple added to their day was a directional sign that featured locations of where guests had traveled from to get to the wedding [we loved this idea]. The couple also honored past family members by displaying photos and special items on top a vintage upright piano. The couple also used a canoe to house beer & soda for the guests [how fitting with the camp theme]!

The ladies got ready for the day with the ever so talented Luminous Beauty Studios doing their hair and makeup, and the guys prepped in their separate cabin. The couple did a sweet first look in the woods, with Abbots Lane Photography, these pictures are P E R F E C T! After the first look and a few wedding party/family photos, it was time for the ceremony. Laura + Will tied the knot [literally] during their unity symbol that featured tying two cords together and included their parents. After the ceremony, the wedding party and family enjoyed a champagne toast and passed apps during cocktail hour. Yard games were played by all and included kube, bags and spike ball.

The reception was hosted in the dining hall. Table decor consisted of butcher paper, table numbers that were pictures of different countries the couple had traveled, tea lights, coffee mugs, and copper containers with flowers and greenery spread throughout the room. The wedding party did their grand entrance to “Space Jam” – so fun! Dinner was buffet style and catered by Yankee Jacks Premiere Catering which was delicious. Desserts were home made by family and friends, served on mismatched vintage plates [SO sweet]. Instant Request DJ started pumping the tunes and the rest of the night was spent dancing and laughing with the newlyweds.

Jenna + John | Redeemed Farm

John + Jenna – where to even start with these two lovebirds! This couple booked their package a little bit later than some. Kellie and Kristin met with the couple only T H R E E weeks before their wedding date! Although the planning process was short, lead planner Kristin noted how sweet & laid back they were. The couple planned the wedding at Redeemed Farm in their beautiful vineyard. Kristin headed to the farm on Thursday evening to assist with their rehearsal – 70 degrees in J U L Y!

Finally, it was F R I D A Y! The ladies prepped for the morning in the bridal suite and were looking stunning. While the wedding party got ready, the mother of the groom was making C U T E + personalized brown-bagged lunches for everyone with their names on it. The gentleman sported different colored F L O R A L ties which added a super fun touch to the day! As everyone got ready for the big day, Kristin and Angie prepped the decor. Studio B Floral added some G O R G E O U S greenery to the ceremony arch – we loved that added touch. One of Kristin’s favorite decor pieces was the Rustic Elegance ladder featuring the couple’s grandparent portraits.

John + Jenna opted to have married couples paired up to create their wedding party processional versus just the traditional friends on each side. As a super family oriented pair, they felt that they wanted to begin their marriage surrounded by the successful + loving couples in their lives [L O V E this]! While the processional occurred, the Lovers of Vitamin String Quartet played. Both the bride and groom were escorted down the aisle by both of their parents, which was so heartwarming to witness.

After the ceremony was completed, everyone headed into the machine shed for cocktails and yard games. Dinner was promptly served in the barn after guests had a chance to mingle and enjoy the beautiful grounds at Redeemed Farm. After the wonderful dinner by Vincenzo’s Catering, guests [+ the newlyweds] enjoyed Sebastian Joe’s Ice Cream Sandwiches which were a huge H I T! Midwest Sound DJ kept the music pumping and the night going – we didn’t want it to end! It was T R U L Y a wonderful day, surrounded by friends + family of the couple.
