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!

Chistine + Jeremy | Backyard Wedding

Christine + Jeremy had the sweetest backyard tent wedding and we had to throw it back to touch on this one. The Rustic Elegance team of Kellie and Danielle started setting up for the day featuring Rustic Elegance rented farm tables, benches, and our cute W O O D bar. As Rustic Elegance prepped, so did the wedding party – with the ladies + gents getting ready in their separate spaces. The bride R O C K E D some super cute cowboy boots – which we were O B S E S S E D with. The wedding party consisted of the couples 2 daughters and 3 sons and made for the C U T E S T pictures by kolorblind Photography. It was then time for their intimate ceremony, featuring a smaller group setting with only family. The day was G O R G E O U S – bright and sunny and perfect for a wedding.

Christine + Jeremy opted for an open house style reception, featuring drinks poured by With a Twist, and wood fire grilled pizzas for dinner [S O – F U N] from Red Rover Pizza. They grilled the pizzas right on-site and even tossed the pizza dough up in the air, not skipping a beat, as guests were W O W E D. Since the bride and groom are “horse people”, they were creative with their guest book, and incorporated a old saddle for people to sign. While guests continued to mingle, DJ Skoolz kept the tunes playing and the dance floor full of energy! Guests enjoyed the laid back feel of the night and celebrating the love of Christine + Jeremy.

Melanie + Dan | Backyard Wedding

Melanie + Dan had such a F U N wedding this past summer! Their ceremony and reception were at the bride’s parents farm and it was so S P E C I A L for everyone involved. The back story of this couple is nothing short of a C U T E love story: they met/dated in high school, but went their separate ways for a while. When they reunited – the sparks flew again and they knew it was meant to be! The flower girl and ring bearer were the bride’s children, and were nothing short of A B S O L U T E L Y adorable [especially in the pictures throughout the day!].

 How A D O R A B L E are these two?!

The ceremony was intimate and sweet, and was underneath the tree that Melanie used to play under as a kid, making it extra special. The set-up for the ceremony and reception was simple, and full of Rustic Elegance rentals! They rented lanterns, tables, a mason jar chandelier, cupcake stands, signage, frame for their seating chart, mirrors, couches, lighting, table runners, chalkboards, ceremony doors, the bar, etc. It was S O much fun setting out and working with the Rustic Elegance decor – we had a B L A S T doing it! The couple also had mason jars filled with kid activities and we loved that special touch for the kid friendly wedding.

So simple + E L E G A N T – we love this chandelier!

The Back 40 Catering did a fantastic job of catering in dinner for the night, and also provided some of the desserts. The other U N I Q U E dessert was mini donuts which were run by Rick and were A M A Z I N G. Guests were given their guest favors of can koozies to use throughout the night, and to use at the fully stocked bar. As the dance was started by the DJ from J Faye Music, the couple provided extra flip-flops for guests to use for their dancing feet [L O V E this idea!]. They also had two bonfire pits that were blazing late into the night. At the end of the night, Kellie & Kelly [with the help of Steve], cleaned up all of the rentals and anything else they could to ease the stress of the couple.

Melanie + Dan – we at Rustic Elegance want to take a moment again to say how T H A N K F U L we are to have met you and we had SO much fun helping with you special day! You were a blast to work with – and we hope that married life is treating you well. Special shout out to Shelley Kay Photography for sharing these beautiful photos with us!

Nicole + Dan | Bloom Lake Barn

At Rustic Elegance, we work with couples across MN & WI to help their weddings run smoothly and so that they don’t have to worry about the details, and get to E N J O Y their perfect day [no matter what comes in the way]. Nicole + Dan were nothing less than an amazing couple, and were equally great to work with. Kellie was the lead planner for Nicole + Dan, and knew from her first meeting with these two lovebirds that she was going to love working with them.

The wedding was at Bloom Lake Barn & we absolutely L O V E this venue. Adam & Monique are so easy to work with and we had four weddings in our 2017 wedding season at this venue, all which ran perfectly. We would highly recommend this venue to any couple looking for a barn venue.

As the girls were preparing for the wedding, Nicole and her girlfriends got henna tattoos for the day [which led to A M A Z I N G photos]. 5.28.17 was a day where we weren’t sure exactly what mother nature was thinking. We started their ceremony outside, but it started raining in the middle of their ceremony, so we I M M E D I A T E L Y implicated our backup plan and moved the ceremony indoors. This move created such a thrilling experience for all involved [us included] and created an intimate ceremony unlike any other wedding. Their grand entrance into the reception was led by a drum line [what a fun way to enter as Mr. & Mrs.!]. The guy friends along with the bride & groom entered into the room and met up with the girl friends who were in the middle of the room, and then did a fun group dance while the other guests watched. This was a super cool way to enter and brought some F U N energy into the reception to start off the night.

Nicole + Dan: T H A N K – Y O U from the bottom of our hearts here at Rustic Elegance for giving us the opportunity to work with such an amazing and fun-loving couple like you two as your Day of Coordinator! We are so thankful to work with clients like you, and hope that your life as newlyweds is nothing short of A M A Z I N G.

Ashley + Jack | John P. Furber Farm

We LOVED helping Ashley + Jack with their Day of Coordinating at the the Historic John P. Furber Farm! They are just the sweetest couple! We had so much fun chatting about their wedding details over coffee [our favorite way to plan weddings!]

Their day started off with all nine bridesmaids getting ready in the beautiful bridal suite wearing super cute matching robes [with mimosas in hand of course]. As Ashley walked through the ceremony doors [rented from Rustic Elegance], We saw Jack shed a tear as he saw his bride for the first time that day. That made us tear up just a little also! Ashley + Jack filled the Furber Barn with 350 of their fav people!. A’BriTin Catering handled this guest count like a champ! We then placed an entire cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes [which also happens to be our personal fav] on each of the tables for guests to enjoy (thats a lot of cake)! The night continued with lots of dancing fun, how could you leave the dance floor with Adagio playing their good beats?

Ashley + Jack we want to sincerely thank you for including Rustic Elegance in your special day! We loved meeting you two and wish you the best!! We will definitely miss our coffee planning dates!

The bride (Amy) painted this picture of Red Barn Farm for guests to sign. They also had a jenga set for guests to write wishes on for the couple! I love cute little personalized details like this.

Lyndsey + Derrick | Backyard Wedding

Looking back at this wedding brings back so many wonderful memories…What a picture perfect, well-planned wedding! Rustic Elegance had the pleasure of working with this wonderful couple helping their vision come to life. Lyndsey and Derrick had always dreamed of a backyard wedding at his father’s home where Derrick grew up, in Isanti, MN. This beautiful cottage-inspired home made the perfect setting for their special day. After months of narrowing down details and logistics, the day finally arrived!

Day of Coordinator, Cayla and Alex, Backyard Wedding

We are so lucky to have Lynse as a Lead Planner on the Rustic Elegance team! Read below to learn about the backyard WI wedding she had the pleasure of helping coordinate!

Cayla & Alex, where do I begin? These two are straight out of a Nicholas Sparks book; they knew each other in high school, but didn’t start dating until after graduation. They bought a beautiful house in New Richmond, Wisconsin, a nice piece of real estate. On their property resides a large pull barn where the previous owner, from what I understand, kept a small charter plane inside. One side of this structure opened from floor to ceiling. Here, Alex and Cayla decided to host the band and dancing. The back of this barn openned to a vast field where the sun would set later that evening. In the year leading up to their wedding they transformed this building into an exceptional venue. A few of the renovations consisted of two well-crafted bars the length of one side with a wood burning fire place separating them. They used reclaimed barn wood to refinish all four walls. And, to top it off, there was a perfectly placed record player directly across from the bars. Let me tell you, this bar was one only some could dream of. The happy couple and their friends and family will get great use of it in the years to come, I am sure. From what I’ve been told, Cayla and Alex would go out during the renovations, throw a few logs in the fire and lay a blanket on the cement floor, enjoy a glass of wine, and enjoy each other’s company while listening to a hand-selected record. These two are adorable; they have a room in their house just for dancing.

Rustic Elegance could not be happier to have planned this wedding. When meeting with Alex and Cayla to finalize the details and itinerary of their backyard wedding, it felt as if I were meeting with old friends. Joe, their fury companion, would always be there to greet me in the driveway upon arrival. Cayla always had glass of wine for me and we would chat the night away. Cayla is an Independent Hair Stylist at Two Redheads and a Wolf so I am fortunate to say we continue to meet up like old friends. I could talk about these two forever, but let’s get to the fun stuff.

Rustic Elegance  hits the road by 9am. My assistant and I stop for our morning coffee then set out for Wisconsin. I know I say this a lot, but we seriously could not have asked for a better day. When we arrive, we begin setting the ceremony site which will take place down the hill near the creek in the couples’ backyard. The Ceremony décor consists of Shepard hooks that have mason jars elegantly hanging full of fresh flowers as well as wood benches and a few rustic chairs to provided seating for the intimate gathering.

The farm tables are dressed, some with cobalt blue vases, and two succulent plants grown by the family placed in birch wood planters, and others with pure white vases.

Following dinner were handmade pies/desserts made with love by Emma.

The couple transformed the greenhouse on the property to be a cute little “kissing” booth/photobooth. The evening was full of love and laughter and they danced the night away to the sweet music of the band!

Some times we get to drive really fun toys when we work backyard weddings-which we love 🙂Day of Coordinator, Cayla and Alex, Backyard Wedding_0809.jpg

And we thought this was a super cute wedding gift idea by one of their guests, so we couldn’t help but share this idea!Day of Coordinator, Cayla and Alex, Backyard Wedding_0816.jpg

I want to personally thank Alex and Cayla for feeling like family and to all the vendors who worked so professionally and fluidly throughout the day. If I could do this day over again, I wouldn’t change a thing. I love you both and wish you the world on your future endeavors!
