Rustic Elegance Vineyard Wedding (13)

This lovely country wedding to us from Kate Wenzel Photography, based in Minnesota! Here’s Kate to tell us more:

The picturesque scene as I arrived was breathtaking. The vast rolling hills of vineyards, forests and dirt roads set the perfect atmosphere for a perfect country wedding. I loved how Katie and Jon elevated the look and feel of this day with their carefully planned details.

See more after the cut!

From my favorite flower bouquet of ALL time, to the lace touches on the bridesmaid dresses; from the sun illuminating the wildflowers and vines to the lights that hugged the walls within the rustic barn. It all created the perfect day, to begin the most wonderful marriage of two beautiful people.

Katie is full of life, bold and strong. She laughs hard and is a girl who joyfully knows what she wants. Jon is quieter, kind and steady. Together, they create a balance in their relationship that is so incredible to witness and capture through the lens. Rustic Elegance Vineyard Wedding (9)

Besides rustic, elegant and beautiful- the word that continues to come to mind when reflecting on their day is this: FUN. Their wedding party was boisterously excited to be a part of this event in every way, and their dance was equally full of life- with a few all-start dancers, including Katie’s grandma! Throughout the day, it was hard to hold back ear-to-ear smiles behind my camera as I sought to document all this fun.
