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!

One of my favorite things about the day, was that Michelle and Brandon decided to donate their wedding flowers at the end of the night! We had the honor of bringing all the floral arrangements to a nursing home the following day. What a great way to start a marriage by being so giving! The response we got at the nursing home was overwhelming!

Wedding Planner, Camrose Hill, Leah & LIz

We are so excited to share with you Leah & Liz’s wedding that took place at Camrose Hill Farm, bright and early on a Sunday morning in June. The ladies decided that a brunch celebration at this fairy-tale like venue perfectly fit their style. When touring Camrose Hill Farm with them and talking about their wedding version, I quickly became super excited and couldn’t wait for their wedding day to come. This venue is AMAZING!! It has everything: Not one, but two ceremony locations to pick from, an outdoor tented space in the middle of the woods for the reception, a cute cottage to get ready in and even a barn to host the ceremony, in case of rain. The fact that Camrose Hill Farm is also a florist couldn’t be more perfect-flowers, greens, vines and gardens are present in abundance throughout the grounds. Walking into Camrose is like waking up in a dream.

Rustic Elegance arrived on-site bright and early at 6:30am (we aren’t morning people so this was an accomplishment already). Ultimate Events arrived and worked quickly to take down the tables chairs etc from a wedding held there the night before, and then reset everything! With a 10am ceremony start, we had to work quickly to get every last detail set up perfectly. There was a pretty high chance of rain forecast that day, so we had to make a quick decision if the chairs (that couldn’t get wet) should be set up in the barn for the backup plan, but luckily we went with our gut and had the ceremony outside and it turned out to be a super sunshiny day.. yay!

Leah and Liz arrived and proceeded to get ready separately in the cute little cottage. A friend of theirs did their hair and make-up as they anxiously awaited their first look. Jackson with A Frame Forward Photography captured this special moment as they saw each other for the first time. (love these pics of them btw)! Jackson was super fun to work with throughout the day… He ran around all day and I don’t think I ever saw him stand still and not have his camera in hand, ready to catch the shot! Thank you Jackson for sharing these great photos with us!

Guests started arriving and enjoyed coffee and biscotti as they waited for the ceremony to begin. We helped direct parking and escorted the elderly guests to the ceremony site using a golf cart. The ladies signed the Ketubah and marriage license among family and friends in the cottage. Danielle, one of our amazing assistants, worked to get the flower girls and ring bears ready; no small task! Leah and Liz named this group “The Giggle” since there were 12 of them! One little guy even got to ride down the aisle in a wagon. All the girls were decorated with a flower crown and a basket of pedals and the boys were given bubble wands. Once ‘The Giggle’ was ready, the musicians in place, Melissa the Rabi situated front and center, and all the guests were seated, we were ready to start.

What a great moment: The sun was shining, bubbles were flowing, flower pedals everywhere, musicians playing away and everyone made it down the aisle ON TIME!-despite our time constraint. This is where we sit back, look around and our heart smiles because we truly love what we do!

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed yard games, fun photo props, dancing to the musicians, a fresh squeezed juice bar (provided by With a Twist), and also just took in all the gardens and the beautiful scenery. Deco Catering busily prepared a delicious brunch spread. Wow! I mean Wow! The brunch they put on was truly amazing! Not only was the food top notch, the buffet was beautifully set up and their service was amazing! We highly recommend Deco Catering! As people went through the buffet line, we worked on getting the dessert buffet set up with Nadia Cakes (our fav). We love that Leah and Liz chose to display the cupcakes on our tree cupcake stand, from our Rental Collection, which perfectly complimented the surroundings.

As the afternoon came to a close, the couple partook in a fun family tradition called the Abrems Dance (See video below). This was so fun to see…family and friends attached bells to their legs, surround Leah and Liz, and danced in a circle around them to the sweet sound of fiddler music. How heart warming!

We are so lucky to have been a part of Leah and Liz’s wedding and loved every minute of helping them plan the perfect day! We wish these two the best in love and happiness and so thank you for including Rustic Elegance in your special day!

Wedding Planning, Rolling Ridge Wedding and Event Center

Wedding Planner, Rolling Ridge, Barn wedding venue_0565.jpg

Rustic Elegance had the pleasure of meeting Randy and Nancy of Rolling Ridge Wedding and Event Center this past summer. We got to spend some time at the barn and absolutely fell in love! From the moment we drove onto the property we could tell that no detail was forgotten. From the landscaping to the bridal suite-this place is amazing!

The large 1800’s timber-framed barn has been completely restored and renovated (which now includes a sound system, heating, AC and every so carefully placed chandeliers). The property also includes a Roosters Roost for the groomsmen, a built in bar/lounge (including bathrooms), and did we mention the perfectly set up bridal suite..?

Located just north of St. Cloud, the historic barn can host up to 300 guests. You will be happy to know that the rental fee also includes the tables and chairs. Rolling Ridge has partnered with a great catering company called Custom Catering, who can offer both food and beverage services. Rolling Ridge has a few ceremony options, including the rolling hills among the large oaks, the barn and also a unique space along side the original rock barn wall (our fav).
