MN monday: rustic elegance.

we caught a glimpse of this gorgeous minnesota wedding from jayne schulte photography and fell head over (adorable) heels. such attention to detail, unique touches, and an array of gorgeous purple touches. it makes us want to venture out to an old barn and turn it into an enchanted venue for the perfect midwest wedding… 

from the glowing bride herself:

“The overall theme for our wedding was Rustic Elegance.  The main driver behind our theme was our amazing venue—The Mayowood Stone Barn in Rochester, Minnesota.  In order to balance out all of the ruggedness of the setting, we paired it with classic elements, such as the floor length linens from BBJ Linen and the elegant centerpieces from Le Jardin.  We infused our wedding with various personalized elements to make it our own, including the one-of-a-kind stationary, created by Ginger P Designs, our vows to one another and the special reading, written by the groom’s grandfather on his 50th wedding anniversary, the custom word search at the cocktail hour, and the Iowa State mints at each place setting (my husband and I are both ISU grads).

I single handedly planned everything for the wedding, right on down to the exact flowers in the bouquets and centerpieces; even the room layout was strategically planned out!  And like any other bride planning with a budget, I had my fair share of DIY projects too, including the photo frame table numbers, picked up from anywhere and everywhere, painted to match, paper pomanders adorning the dance floor, and the oversized escort chart, bar, and buffet menus.  Some of our favorite elements were the AMAZING food, provided by Catering by Design, the signature drink, “Something Blue”, and the popcorn party favors from Carroll’s Corn in Rochester.  With everything said and done, we are more than pleased with how everything turned out, and Jayne Schulte’s photos are proof of the matter!”
