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!

Katelin + Jeremy | Almquist Farm

Katelin + Jeremy were seriously the sweetest couple to work with! Lead coordinator Kayla loved getting together with Katelin to plan and also enjoyed their in depth phone convos with the bride! The couple decided on getting married at Almquist Farm, on a beautiful Sunday in the fall. The farm has a stunning ceremony site, bridal/grooms rooms for both the guys and for the girls, a large lawn perfect for cocktail hour or an outdoor dinner, and a large reception barn with capacity for 340 guests. We love working at Almquist + the owners Paul & Kari are A M A Z I N G!

The ladies spent the morning getting ready in the adorable onsite bridal suite with getting their hair and makeup done. While the girls got ready, Rustic Elegance unpacked and placed decor all over the property! The day was beautiful, and perfect for the outdoor ceremony. The couple rented two of the barrels from Rustic Elegance which were placed at the entrance of the ceremony site, one with pretty flowers and the other housed their guestbook. Kevin Wood Photography snapped photos of the first look, bridal party, and family before the ceremony [and got some adorable shots]!

Finally, it was time for these two to tie the knot! Katelin walked elegantly down the long green-filled pathway to meet Jeremy at the front of the aisle. Almquist has three beautiful decor options for the ceremony: a gorgeous birchwood circular arch, a wooden trellis, or a cross to go behind the couple. After the ceremony was finished and these two sealed the deal with a kiss, guests followed by greeting them in a receiving line, and went to the cocktail hour hosted on the large lawn outside of the barn. This Little Piggy catered in a few buffet style appetizers, while the Almquist team manned the bar. Guests then headed into the reception barn where This Little Piggy had set up a delicious buffet style meal.

After dinner, Midwest Sound turned up the volume and got the party started! The couple enjoyed their special first dance, and then the rest of the guest joined them on the dance floor. For dessert, This Little Piggy brought an assortment of sweet treats out that guests loved.

Katelin + Jeremy – we hope that married life is nothing but the best and that you are enjoying every minute of it! We loved being your day of coordinator and can’t wait to watch your love grow. Shout out to Kevin Wood Photography for sharing these photos with us!

Haley + Makkonen | Gardens of Castle Rock

Oh where to start with this S W E E T couple! Haley + Makkonen dug into their planning process with lead planner Kellie and the outcome was the most P E R F E C T day! This couple’s love story goes all the way back to high school [high school sweethearts – L O V E it]. Their wedding took place at the Gardens of Castle Rock, an A M A Z I N G outdoor venue that we love being at! We’ve Got It Covered came early in the morning do some G O R G E O U S draping under the tent and brought along their deep purple linens for the guest tables. The ladies in the wedding party prepped for the day in the newly renovated bridal suite, and the guys arrived a little later just in time for their first look! Jeannine Marie photographed this sweet couple and their bridal party throughout the day, doing a F A N T A S T I C job as always. Rustic Elegance prepped the guest tables, place cards, dessert table, and other decor throughout the space, and finally it was ceremony time!

The ceremony was held under the Lath House at the Gardens of Castle Rock. The site was S T U N N I N G featuring a arch of gorgeous flowers provided by Studio B Floral, entrance doors provided by us, a pink aisle runner and the natural beauty of the venue. After the ceremony, it was time for cocktail hour- guests enjoyed refreshments and appetizers by Mintahoe catering, and also enjoyed touring the beautifully manicured grounds and gardens. Guests then moved under the tent to their beautiful decorated dinner tables with purple linens, burlap purple runners, white napkins, gold chairs, and floral centerpieces from Studio B Floral. The newlyweds sat at a sweetheart table – a cute touch! Mintahoe served an amazing dinner, and speeches came next, where there was not a dry eye in the room for most of them. We love hearing old & fun memories about the couples in the speeches! The rest of the evening was full of dancing and love radiating from the happily married couple.

Andrea + Eric | Bullard Creek Barn

Taking it back to 2015 – when Andrea and Eric tied the knot! We L O V E D working with this sweet couple. Lynse + Kellie worked on this wedding with these two lovebirds. This couple used a T O N of rentals from Rustic Elegance, which we of course love! They rented cupcake stands, burlap table runners, mason jar beverage dispensers, vintage dinner plates, table numbers, chalkboard signs, etc. They also rented a few of our sofas to create a fun L O U N G E area for their guests. Their guests loved be able to hang out in this area and enjoy conversations with family and friends. They also used our ladder to display memories // photos of past loved ones. It was a sweet touch to remember those who weren’t able to be there on their special day! Our team placed our vintage plates delicately at each place setting to create a cute dressed up table setting. One of our favorite things to do is integrate our rentals into the weddings we work on – so much F U N!

The day began with the ladies prepping and the guys doings the same. They then headed to the church, where the couple officially could call themselves a M A R R I E D couple – yay! Before the couple left the alter, the groom took a selfie with his new wife and then preceded to walked down the aisle for the first time as husband and wife. [don’t worry, Alison Geier, the couple’s photographer, snapped a photo of this as well]! So fun!

When the groom was satisfied with the selfie quality, the wedding party, consisting of 7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen, hopped on the super cute trolley that the couple rented out for the day [such a fun + unique transport]. The wedding party arrived at the Bullard Creek Barn, where they made their grand entrance to the song “Gold Digger”. During cocktail hour and for the remainder of the night, guests enjoyed yard games including Jenga, bean bags, and ladder ball. Post cocktail hour, guests were then seated for speeches and dinner. They found their place on the old door that doubled as their seating chart [loved this!]. Liberty’s provided the Y U M M Y buffet style dinner: marinated chicken and pork, roasted red potatoes and veggies. Dinner was followed with some A M A Z I N G cupcakes by Hanisch Bakery, placed on top of our cute little cupcake stands! As an added snack, they also had a old style popcorn machine throughout the night for guests to enjoy. The couple enjoyed their first dance together as husband and wife, to the song “Inspiration” by Chicago and it was so A D O R A B L E. As the dance continued, energy F I L L E D the barn, as the guests danced the night away. To make sure that their guests were comfy, the couple provided “dancing shoes” for their guests – love this idea! Later in the evening, guests also had the option of enjoying the B O N F I R E outside on this gorgeous night.

Kelsey + Isaac | Creekside Farm

In the end of October 2017, Kelsey + Isaac had an A M A Z I N G wedding at Creekside Farm. Planned by Rustic Elegance team members Angie + Kellie, this wedding was definitely one for the books! Tammy, the owner at Creekside Farm, was so extremely H E L P F U L on this day, and absolutely wonderful to work with! The couple spent their morning getting ready in the respective bridal/groom suites. They then met for outdoor F I R S T L O O K photos in their unplanned winter wonderland! Kellie helped keep the bride’s dress out of the snow by standing in the back of some of the photos and holding up the bottom of her dress so it didn’t get ruined! Although the snow was unplanned, it made for G O R G E O U S photos, and Kellie noted how fun it was taking them in the snow. Photographers from Midwest LifeShots Photography, Scott + Jen, were so easy to work with and Kellie said her cheeks were sore the next day from giggling so much through the shoot!

The couple was planning for an outdoor ceremony, but to their surprise, they were blessed with S N O W [turning their fall wedding into a W I N T E R wonderland!]. Implementing the back-up plan, the Rustic Elegance team swapped their outdoor ceremony into an an intimate indoor ceremony inside of the barn. During their elegant ceremony, guests were able to enjoy the warmth from the in-floor heating that the barn had [a R A R E find]. The wedding party entered from the side of the barn, and the flower girl was also escorted down the aisle in a wagon [absolutely A D O R A B L E]. Kelsey made her grand entrance through the large barn doors at the back of the barn with her dad + guests were tearing up at the beautiful moment [and Kellie may have shed a tear or two, too!]. Kelsey + Isaac also had a unique unity tree planting during their ceremony, which was S U P E R special [we loved this idea!].

After the ceremony, we flipped the barn into a very special reception venue with the help of Tammy and the Creekside Farm staff. Distinctive Catering & Events did a fantastic job prepping the buffet food for the night, and even cooked up the late night snack of wood fire pizzas [so D E L I C I O U S]. For dessert, guests enjoyed Dippin Dots and Nothing Bundt Cakes [Y U M]. After dinner, guests enjoyed a slideshow of the couple on a screen provided by Creekside [what a F U N way to look back on memories of the couple!]. As the night progressed and the dancing started, DJ Dan from Adagio DJ Entertainment had the guests dancing the night away, and as always, is so F U N to work with! Rustic Elegance cleaned up the reception area and packed the trailer back up with decor at the end of the night. We took home the flower arrangements, per the couples request, and donated them the following morning to Golden Living Center in Wayzata, which created lots of S M I L E S!
