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.

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 | 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!

Chistine + Jeremy | Backyard Wedding

Christine + Jeremy had the sweetest backyard tent wedding and we had to throw it back to touch on this one. The Rustic Elegance team of Kellie and Danielle started setting up for the day featuring Rustic Elegance rented farm tables, benches, and our cute W O O D bar. As Rustic Elegance prepped, so did the wedding party – with the ladies + gents getting ready in their separate spaces. The bride R O C K E D some super cute cowboy boots – which we were O B S E S S E D with. The wedding party consisted of the couples 2 daughters and 3 sons and made for the C U T E S T pictures by kolorblind Photography. It was then time for their intimate ceremony, featuring a smaller group setting with only family. The day was G O R G E O U S – bright and sunny and perfect for a wedding.

Christine + Jeremy opted for an open house style reception, featuring drinks poured by With a Twist, and wood fire grilled pizzas for dinner [S O – F U N] from Red Rover Pizza. They grilled the pizzas right on-site and even tossed the pizza dough up in the air, not skipping a beat, as guests were W O W E D. Since the bride and groom are “horse people”, they were creative with their guest book, and incorporated a old saddle for people to sign. While guests continued to mingle, DJ Skoolz kept the tunes playing and the dance floor full of energy! Guests enjoyed the laid back feel of the night and celebrating the love of Christine + Jeremy.
