bride and groom kissing in a field

Rustic chic details abound in this heartwarming barn wedding brought to us by Erin Johnson Photography, based in Minneapolis, MN! Here’s Megan, the lovely bride, to tell us more:

We both knew we wanted to get married in a Barn. The question was which barn. We looked all over Minnesota and Wisconsin, visiting at least 20 different venues. Nothing really stuck out until Dan came across The Enchanted Barn. As soon as I saw the website, I have a feeling that that was the place we were going to start our lives together. We went to visit the barn and it was a done deal. The location was perfect, in between his hometown and my hometown, closer to me so it was easy to make plans, and smack dab in the middle of the country. I consider it a “tiny diamond in a hay stack”.

Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Marilyn of Rising Lotus Photography (Tampa, FL), is utterly charming and brimming with sweet rustic details! Here’s Marilyn to tell us more:

Lindsay and Jean-Paul have a storybook love. The kind that you dream about when you imagine a forever partner. Being in their presence makes your heart hurt, in the best way. It’s a yearning of sorts.Their wedding was one of the rare weddings that didn’t have a first look. And although I usually encourage first looks, I have to admit that seeing Jean-Paul’s face when he saw Lindsay coming down the aisle was pretty fantastic.

This endearing couple had a stylish, rustic riverfront wedding

This gorgeous rustic, riverfront wedding comes to us from wedding planner, Brittany Collier of Chancey Charm Washington, DC! Here’s Brittany to tell us more:

While I didn’t help with the design of this wedding, I absolutely loved everything about working with Nia and Adam coordinating their wedding day. Nia is extremely detail orientated and she has amazing style! She envisioned an organic, personal and intimate wedding – and I think she achieved that in a gorgeous way that was so home grown and so them. From the cozy lounge seating area with pillows saying cute things like “love you more” to the warm ambiance of the string-light and lantern lit barn, every guest felt right at home and had a blast celebrating these two!
