Barbara + David | Redeemed Farm

If you thought the groom’s dinner from our last blog was A M A Z I N G – wait until you see how the wedding day was for Barbara + David. If you missed it, we blogged about their gorgeous outdoor groom’s dinner and you can read that by clicking here.

The morning of the wedding was so beautiful and peaceful at one of our favorite venues, Redeemed Farm. Barbara got ready in the bridal suite at Redeemed Farm into dress number one. She had a casual dress as she greeted guests in and then changed into dress number two for the ceremony and remainder of the evening. While they were getting ready and enjoying their morning, My + Kellie placed the decor throughout the space at the farm along side Ashley Fox Designs, who placed the florals. The floral install for this day was A M A Z I N G and not one flower short of breathtaking. The RE team placed the rentals throughout the space including barrels, furniture, and our galvanized tin bar which we placed in the machine shed for use during cocktail hour. The couple decided to switch up the traditional wedding timeline and host the cocktail hour with apps before the ceremony, then move guests to the barn for the ceremony, and then downstairs for dinner and back upstairs for the dance. The couple greeted guests as they arrived in the machine shed, as did the bluegrass band Good Morning Bedlam.

After a lovely cocktail hour, guests were asked to take a seat for the wedding ceremony. The couple got ready for the ceremony and Barbara changed into dress number two. The couple’s children made up the wedding party. We loved that it was a F A M I L Y affair! They then proceeded to the ceremony where Barbara’s son, Edison, played the piano for a beautiful prelude to the ceremony music. It was a beautiful ceremony, including a sweet sand ceremony as the unity symbol that included all of the children on top of a Rustic Elegance barrel with wooden top.

After the couple said their “I do’s”, guests headed downstairs for a Y U M M Y dinner provided by Custom Catering by Short Stop. The dinner was so fun, and you could tell there was so much love in the room for these two individuals! For dessert – the couple went all out with options including an ice cream trailer from Ben & Jerry’s, wedding cake from Buttercream Wedding Cakes, Nothing Bundt Cakes that were placed on every table to enjoy during speeches, as well as chocolate covered strawberries from Custom Catering by Short Stop AND a traditional Norwegian Cake – P H E W!

After speeches, the couple headed out for the lock and key ceremony at Redeemed which we L O V E more and more every time. Redeemed Farm will provide you a lock and key and will let you lock it on their Grain Bin. It is so fun for us to go back each time and recognize the locks from all our couples – so S P E C I A L. Guests headed upstairs for dancing and the couple W O W – ed them with their choreographed first dance to Prairie Spring by Jay Ungar and Molly Mason. After that, the dance floor was open and guests were moving to the music all night long! Redeemed also lit a bonfire outside and guests enjoyed that as well on the beautiful July evening.

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 | Styled Shoot

Along with a few other great vendors, we were chosen to help with a Styled Shoot, at the beautiful Rolling Ridge Wedding and Event Center. We absolutely L O V E D every minute of this fun shoot! We went with a fall theme, sporting some plaid and cozy feelings throughout. Our outstanding vendor team took the already romantic venue and added cozy & woodsy decor to create this romantic look. The florals from St. Cloud Floral were A M A Z I N G and bold – adding such a difference to the table setting. Rustic Elegance brought in rental decor including farm tables, vintage plates, wine barrels with door for desserts, lanterns, and Mr. & Mrs. pillows. Geyer Rental brought in the dinner chairs, the gold silverware, sofa and backdrop, adding more decor throughout the shoot. We also were so in L O V E with Paper Thick Ink’s graphic touches throughout the shoot including the invitations, popcorn bag programs, and guest favor tags.

This rustic venue is located in Saint Joseph, MN, right off of I-94. The venue lays on 14 acres of natural beauty – hills, mature trees and views of fields and water that aren’t easily compared to other locations. The barn is 120-years old and can comfortable seat 300 guests, and also has heating/cooling features depending on what time of year your wedding is in. The barn was moved from its original place of standing, but the foundation was left as is, which now can be used for a backdrop for your wedding ceremony. We absolutely L O V E doing weddings at this venue, and working with the owners.
