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.

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!
