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!

Backyard Wedding | Molly + Justin

Molly + Justin said their “I do’s” on the groom’s family property, and celebrated after with a huge tent reception. Lead planner Kellie loved working with the family [Justin’s brother, Josh also had a tent wedding that Rustic Elegance helped plan] and working on the charming property. It was so fun to plan a wedding for siblings – only a few months between the two!

The morning of the wedding, lead planner Kellie and assistants Kelly + Kayla arrived to help prep the tent + decor. The weather was iffy in the morning – the team watched closely and prayed for it to clear up in time for an O U T S I D E ceremony. The ladies + gentlemen got ready in their home on the property. Once it cleared up, the couple was able to do their first look at the ceremony site [complete with a G O R G E O U S homemade arch] that was sweet and intimate.

After the first look, the wedding party captured some photos inside in intermittent sprinkling of rain, and then got some W O N D E R F U L photos in the woods. Finally, it was time to make the call on having the ceremony under the tent or trusting Mother Nature not to rain any longer. 30 minutes prior to the wedding, Rustic Elegance + the couple decided to have the wedding outside, and with the help family + friends, were able to move the chairs out from the tent into ceremony formation. Without a hitch, the ceremony went perfectly, with only a slight drizzle at the beginning. The couple recessed by doing a receiving line to greet their guests, and guests moved over to the tent for cocktail hour.

The couple then took a ride on the horse drawn carriage provided by Independence Carriage [who we just love working with] and took in a moment alone before joining guests back for cocktail hour. By this time the sun was out in full force, and guests were able to enjoy horse rides until dinner [so fun + guests L O V E D it!]. Dinner was catered in by Russell’s on the Lake and was A M A Z I N G! Guests enjoyed dinner, speeches and laughter before it was time to dance. PM Enterprise DJ Luke got the party started post-dinner, and guests delighted in yummy cupcakes for dessert! As the end of the night neared, guests lined up for a sparkler send-off to wish the newlyweds fair well for the evening!
