Laura + Will | Kamp Kenwood

Laura + Will met through the “Coffee Meets Bagel” app [how cool is that!] and felt an instant connection. Their love for one another grew quickly, and then Will popped the question – and that meant it was time to plan the big day! Lead planner Kellie met with Laura and her mom, Sue, throughout the planning process and loved talking with these two ladies about their wedding ideas.

Their wedding took place at Kamp Kenwood – a gorgeous outdoor rustic venue located in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. It featured a S T U N N I N G lakeside ceremony site, and large dining area for the reception. Since the couple met via Coffee Meets Bagel, the company contributed money to their wedding, which bought adorable camp cups as guest favors! One [of many] unique touches the couple added to their day was a directional sign that featured locations of where guests had traveled from to get to the wedding [we loved this idea]. The couple also honored past family members by displaying photos and special items on top a vintage upright piano. The couple also used a canoe to house beer & soda for the guests [how fitting with the camp theme]!

The ladies got ready for the day with the ever so talented Luminous Beauty Studios doing their hair and makeup, and the guys prepped in their separate cabin. The couple did a sweet first look in the woods, with Abbots Lane Photography, these pictures are P E R F E C T! After the first look and a few wedding party/family photos, it was time for the ceremony. Laura + Will tied the knot [literally] during their unity symbol that featured tying two cords together and included their parents. After the ceremony, the wedding party and family enjoyed a champagne toast and passed apps during cocktail hour. Yard games were played by all and included kube, bags and spike ball.

The reception was hosted in the dining hall. Table decor consisted of butcher paper, table numbers that were pictures of different countries the couple had traveled, tea lights, coffee mugs, and copper containers with flowers and greenery spread throughout the room. The wedding party did their grand entrance to “Space Jam” – so fun! Dinner was buffet style and catered by Yankee Jacks Premiere Catering which was delicious. Desserts were home made by family and friends, served on mismatched vintage plates [SO sweet]. Instant Request DJ started pumping the tunes and the rest of the night was spent dancing and laughing with the newlyweds.

Emily + Jason | Carver Lake Park Pavilion

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!

Kristina + Derek | Steele County Fairgrounds

Kristina + Derek were so F U N to plan with! From the first meeting with Rustic Elegance, lead planner Kellie knew that their day was going to be a P E R F E C T start to their forever!

The ladies had their hair and makeup done at the house with Amber Budd + Brittany Kinne prior to heading out to take some photos with Whitnei Abel Photography. Kristina and her bridesmaids had G O R G E O U S floral bouquets designed by her cousin, Sara, who works for Creative Concepts Floral. Post-pictures, the wedding party headed to Rice Lake Church for an intimate ceremony with close friends and family.

The reception was at the Beer Garden barn on the Steele County fairgrounds and made for a G R E A T area for all their guests [they had about 350 total – wow!]! As far as decor, the picnic tables were lined with lace table runners, centerpieces including bundles of baby’s breath in copper vases, and an added vintage touch of old soda bottles. There were also high top cocktail tables set up throughout the space to account for standing room for their large guest count. The inside of the barn was draped with S T U N N I N G cafe lights from We’ve Got It Covered that gave an extra rustic element to the space. The couple rented wine barrels from Rustic Elegance which were used as decor outside of the reception venue [we added a cute sign provided by the couple and some extra florals to make it look super C U T E!]. For their guest book, the couple had wine bottles labeled with their significant anniversaries to come and asked guests to sign the wine bottles [adorable!]. The couple also brought in their own yard games to add to the Beer Garden’s terrace and it was the place to be for the kids that attended their reception!

When the couple arrived at the reception site as newlyweds, they said a few words to their guests before dismissing everyone to head to the buffet. Torey’s Restaurant did the buffet style catering for their informal flow style dinner throughout the night, with a wide variety of food options, and also manned the bar for guests. Desserts were served from rented Rustic Elegance cupcake stands [on top of some more of our wine barrels] with the cupcakes being provided by Perfect Day Cakes [which were Y U M M Y!]. The couple also had their Photo Booth set up for guests to use [TC Photobooth] which was a H U G E hit. After dinner + speeches, it was time to D A N C E! The Fabulous Love Handles did a G R E A T job and were very fun and engaging with the crowd [especially the little kiddos!]. The kiddos also had a blast playing with the G I A N T balloons, board games, and glow bracelets that the couple provided! In front of the band stage on the dance floor, the couple added cute marquee letters spelling L O V E that lit up the dance floor [so fun!].

Round Barn Farm – Styled Shoot

As a wedding coordinator, we have some A M A Z I N G opportunities that come our way. One of such is being a part of a styled shoot. This fall, we were able to take part in a styled shoot at Round Barn Farm, and it couldn’t have turned out any B E T T E R! This barn is located in Red Wing MN, and features [absolutely] beautiful views of the Mississippi River Valley. The barn itself is a sixty foot high round barn, and is surrounded by greenery [fun fact: the barn was built in 1914 – W O W!].

We tried to think a little out of the ordinary for this shoot, and pair some non-traditional fall colors together, while still ensuring that they complement one another, and leave a romantic vibe in the air. We settled on burgundy, gold and black details which turned out to be S T U N N I N G.

The ladies spent their morning getting ready in the G O R G E O U S bridal suite at Round Barn Farm. JAK Beauty styled our models with some amazing make-up, while Hair Love worked on their hairdos [the outcome was perfect on all of the models – such a good T E A M!].

We tried to think a little out of the ordinary for this shoot, and pair some non-traditional fall colors together, while still ensuring that they complement one another, and leave a romantic vibe in the air. We settled on burgundy, gold and black details which turned out to be S T U N N I N G.

For this shoot, we were S O lucky to have the help of S O many vendors. The bride’s wedding gown was a feature from Bridal Accents Couture, and incorporated gorgeous lace embellishments. Fringe Boutique provided E L E G A N T gold jewelry for our ladies which added an extra sweet touch. The bridesmaids were outfitted in long, burgundy dresses in two different styles [tip: this style is I N – having your bridesmaids in different styles of dresses looks fun for pictures A N D ensures that everyone is comfortable in their dress!]. Also, because fall weddings can get a little C O O L in the MN // WI area, we featured fur wraps to keep our ladies heated during the shoot. The A D O R A B L E flower girl is wearing a simple white dress with burgundy accents [sash + floral crown] to complement the wedding color scheme. The groom was dressed in a traditional black suit with a burgundy bow tie [L O V E] and pocket square. The ring bearer wanted to be dressed the same as the groom, and the outcome is just too C U T E!

The florals throughout the day were nothing short of P E R F E C T! Studio B did a fantastic job tying in burgundy, red, and purple arrangements throughout the day. The bouquets even had blueberries [so C R E A T I V E]. Hanging amaranthus were also used throughout the day to add more of the burgundy pop to our shoot.

The Round Barn Farm is seemingly B E A U T I F U L by nature. For decor for this shoot, we decided to focus on this natural beauty outdoors, and keep the ceremony sites decor simple. The fun thing about the Round Barn Farm is that they have 2 ceremony site locations to choose from when planning your S P E C I A L day, so we wanted to showcase these outstanding options. For ceremony site #1, We’ve Got It Covered used G O R G E O U S white draping to frame the site, and add a nice simple touch to the ceremony backdrop. We also utilized some of the hanging amaranthus on the ceremony draping, and tied black sashes on the backdrop and chairs for another simple touch. Studio B created a hanging floral ball with burgundy blooms, as well as simple greenery for the couple to stand underneath. Love Letters designed a F U N chalkboard sign at the end of the aisle for added decor [which we A D O R E D]. For ceremony site #2, We’ve Got it Covered used simple elegant white draping on a large tree, paired with an adorable chalkboard [again by the talented Love Letters] at the end of this aisle as well.

On to the R E C E P T I O N! For this, we styled two different tablescapes – one for guests, and one for the head table. The guest tables featured burgundy, cream, and gold color schemes. The chairs were accented by a burgundy + lace sash to further complement the romantic theme. For the centerpiece features, we used gold lanterns with cream candles, gold floral vases, birch table number holders, floral watermark table numbers + menu cards designed by the great Ink Well Minneapolis, and a burgundy table runner. We also added burgundy blooms, berries, and a subtle amount of greenery compliment our color scheme throughout the tablescape.

For the head table, we used M O R E greenery, as well as a few more black accent details, like plate chargers and napkins. For the head table backdrop, we used burgundy draping with greenery hanging from birch branches. A long garland with gold votive candles was used to center the burgundy bouquets and gold pillar candle holders.

For the reception decor, Adagio Djay Entertainment added some A M A Z I N G up-lighting to the dance floor, and we were ready to dance [all night long!]. We also featured some cozy couches for guests to sit on in the bottom level of the barn, which were rentals from the Rustic Elegance furniture collection. We’ve Got It Covered added some extra draping for a nice finishing touch to this area.

Day of Coordinator, Round Barn Styled Shoot_0181.jpg

And last, but D E F I N I T E L Y not least, our dessert featured a stunning burgundy tiered cake designed by Miss Sara’s Cakery. The top tier was even painted gold to go with the theme. She also provided amazing wedding themed cookies and other small desserts placed on stands and trays to fill the dessert table [which was an old horse wagon situated inside the barn].The dessert stands + platters featured are rentals from Rustic Elegance, and are great options to add a little more rustic decor in to your special day!

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!

What a pleasure it was to work with so many amazing vendors that made this day happen. And a special thanks to Redeemed Farm for letting us use your STUNNING space to pull this off!

Mel + Chris, Bloom Lake Barn

Mel + Chris were such a great couple to work with! The planning meetings with them were so much fun.. we met at a brewery, and then for brunch, and nailed down the details for their big day. After lots of planning, the day finally arrived. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous! They even had their pup be a part of their special day. They had so many cute touches to their wedding – Mel had made the cookies for their late night snack, the couple didn’t see each other before the ceremony, the photos they had hanging on the wall were old wedding photos of past relatives. And their dessert bar by The Thirsty Whale had guests oooh-ing and ahh-ing. Congratulations Mel + Chris… what an amazing day!

Thank you so much for choosing Rustic Elegance as your day of coordinator!

Kristin + Kevin | Hidden Meadows and Barn

Kristin + Kevin got married at Hidden Meadow and Barn this summer on a hot June day. This wedding was a rustic dream! Everything was absolute perfection. The ceremony took place in the meadows and the reception was in the pavilion. They had yard games, a food truck for dinner, an elegant dessert table and lots and lots of dancing! We loved working with Kristin + Kevin to help their dream wedding come to life.
