Megan + Colton | Almquist Farm

Megan + Colton were so much fun to work with. Throughout the planning process, lead planner Kellie loved meeting with Megan and her mom to come up with the master plan. The morning of June 15 came about, and the weather was a little tricky. It started without rain in the forecast, but Kellie kept radar watch while the couple enjoyed themselves getting ready in the bridal suite at Almquist. The combination bridal suite has a level downstairs for the gentleman, and the upstairs level is all for the ladies! Lindsey White Photography was there to capture the day, and took some A M A Z I N G photos! The couple did their first look with a few little drizzles, but were covered by cute, clear umbrellas [+ the first look was S O sweet!].

While the couple + their bridal party were prepping for the day, Kellie + Kayla set up the beautiful main barn for the reception. Simple greens paired with small vases with white flowers, and clear votives dressed up the already S T U N N I N G farm tables that Almquist provides. The couple also rented Rustic Elegance dessert stands to decorate their dessert table of mini-cupcakes [so Y U M M Y]!

The rain was intermittent throughout the afternoon, allowing for photos under the main barn’s overhang and out in the lawn. Luckily, the rain cleared up just in the knick of time for their outdoor ceremony. The wedding party glided down the beautiful aisle/trail before the bride and her dad took their walk. After a gorgeous ceremony under the trees overlooking the valley, guests migrated to the main barn for cocktail hour and dinner. This Little Piggy provided a C L A S S I C meal that all guests loved. The cute mini-cupcakes were also a hit for all of the guests – the perfect bite sized T R E A T!

After dinner + desserts, it was time for speeches + dancing. Megan’s dad captured a fun video during his speech – he ran around the entire room with his phone and people cheered for the newlyweds! Such a fun memory that these two will have F O R E V E R! Then it was time to get the party started on the dance floor. Lindsey White Photography also snapped a full group photo on the dance floor of A L L wedding guest attendees – so C U T E!

Backyard Wedding | Marissa + Josh

Where to even start with this cute couple? Marissa + Josh and their families were so nice to work with! This was our 2nd wedding in this backyard, as we helped with Josh’s brother Justin’s wedding a few months earlier. We absolutely loved working with this family and we miss them dearly after all the time spent with them creating two, magical backyard weddings!

The tent was set up the Thursday before the wedding in the large, open yard, and We’ve Got It Covered draped the tent with fabric and lights [so P R E T T Y!]. Rustic Elegance then came back on Saturday morning ready to set up the rest of the decor, and ensuring everything was set and ready for the day. Their decor included a memory display of those loved ones who had passed, placed on top of a special wood slice that was made by grandpa. The couple opted to include a bounce house in their wedding fun as their “kid’s activity”! It was such a hit with the kids, and all of the kid’s at heart [a.k.a. the adults enjoyed it too!]. The couple also rented Rustic Elegance’s bar and barrels with table tops for their cocktail hour set up. It was perfect weather wise – a sunny, beautiful day! The large wedding party consisted of 7 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen, plus the cutest little ring bearer and flower girl combo.

Surrounded by beautifully landscaped sections of the yard, complete with special wildflowers planted by the family, the couple said their “I do’s”
in front of an arbor built by the family. The ring bearers pulled the flower girl down the aisle in a wagon, almost stealing the show before the beautiful bride walked down the aisle with her dad. For their unity symbol, the couple tied three strands to make one braid.

During cocktail hour, guests again enjoyed the bouncy house, as well as yard games. Then, it was dinner time – a pig roast buffet! The Lookout in Maple Grove brought in the full pig and served it buffet style for the guests to enjoy. It was Y U M M Y! Then, for dessert, yummy C U P C A K E S! As the sunset, you could now see the monogram brought in by the DJ that lit up the couple’s initials on the tent [so unique + cool!] and the dance had begun! The couple did their first dance to “Today” by Brad Paisley. We lit the bonfire and set out s’mores for a little late night sweet snack. At the end of the night, the couple exited with a sparkler send including flair fireworks!

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.
