Elegant Rustic Wedding in Minnetrista, Minnesota (15)

Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Nicola Harger Photography, captures everything we love about rustic weddings from the fields of wildflowers to the red barn reception! Here’s Nicola to tell us more:

Eman and Sam were wed one warm summer day surrounded by their closest family and friends. Gale Woods Farm was the perfect wedding venue for them, as their wedding day was a celebration of love and cherishing the people closest to them. Nothing could go wrong.

See more after the cut!

Eman and Sam’s first look was one of the most emotional I’ve ever witnessed – so much joy in every tear and ever embrace. Their ceremony site was up on a hill with lake views for miles, representing the very best of beautiful Minnesota.

The reception lasted long with friends and family toasting, dancing and playing yard games as the summer night faded away. It was such a privilege to be part of this beautiful day.
