O H what a perfect hot wedding day we had for Emily + Jason! This cute couple were S O sweet through the planning process – we loved getting to know them.
The day began with the wedding party prepping for the B I G day in their separate places. The wedding party was intimate, including the maid of honor, best man, ring bearer and flower girl [so S W E E T!]. Emily’s flowers were P E R F E C T – Kowalski’s did a fantastic job with her bouquet. These lovebirds were married at Central Park in Woodbury, in front of their closest family and friends. The ring bearer started out strong – carrying the Rustic Elegance rental “Here Comes the Bride” sign – and made it to the aisle R I G H T before the chairs started, and then did a hard turn and circled back inside [it made for a giggle from all and was pretty cute]. Matt Berdahl officiated the ceremony with such personality and ease – very S W E E T! You could see the L O V E and support the guests had for the couple – it made the day so S P E C I A L!
Guests then headed to Carver Lake Park Pavilion in Woodbury for the reception. The setup was S T U N N I N G – featuring Rustic Elegance farm tables + vintage chairs for their sweetheart table. The Rustic Elegance team of Kellie + Lynse set up the reception site including Rustic Elegance burlap and lace table runners, along with wood slices, flowers and candles – so G O R G E O U S. The couple also made their own J A M as guest favors – pairing them with a sign stating to “Spread the Love” [she also gifted Kellie + Lynse one – so D E L I C I O U S !]. Guests arrived at the reception venue and were able to enjoy a picnic style buffet provided by Kowalski’s. For dessert, the Rustic Elegance team assisted in setting up a s’mores station [featuring a flame holder made by the groom]. It was such a fun idea when a bonfire wasn’t an option at their venue!
Emily + Jason – we hope that married life is treating you well! We L O V E D being a part of your special day and enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane to blog about it. Also special thanks to Michaela Shanae Photography for sharing these fantastic photos of their day with us!
