From Jeff Loves Jessica: Every last detail of Bridget & Andrew’s fun & intimate wedding was completely inspiring to us! They brought some big city class to Andrew’s small hometown & farm in Rushford MN, and blended it with tons of local charm and DIY details. The ceremony took place in an open grassy field along a beautiful little creek on Andrew’s childhood farm. Before plopping down on hay bails at the ceremony, guests were greeted by piles of canvas goody bags, painted with cows & hearts, all nestled together in the scoop of a tractor. Later guests congregated at the Hoiland Mill for a fun photobooth and an amazing meal of local, organic food from the Blue Heron Cafe. Even the rhubarb Spring Valley soda they served was from a nearby fountain shop! The reception decorations were absolutely stunning–bright blooms in glass bottles of various heights were arranged on slabs of wood. Andrew & Bridget are a super adorable couple and we felt so honored to be asked to capture this amazing day of theirs!

Urban Wedding at the Corson Building

Whimsical Weddings

“Vera Wang meets chicken coop!” How could one resist? Audra and Chris chose the Corson Building in Seattle for their wedding and designed their invitations and concept around the chicken coop that the venue has. And unique venues call for equally distinct gowns…so a Vera Wang number was in order. The wedding was dubbed “Big Dress / Small Wedding” due to the huge peach Vera Wang dress she wore (lovingly referred to as “the Wang”). Shot by Jenny Jimenez, this wedding is filled to the brim with handmade touches. Check out the photo gallery for the deets!

Sweet wedding at one of the most beautiful venues in Seattle, the Corson Building. Audra and Chris crafted most of their decor by hand. Audra painted the invitations to match the Corson Building & their chickens that live on site.

We had seedbombs as favors, customized for every region of the country their guests came from, and a taco bar at the end of the night.

I worked from the thing we were sure about– the venue– and so I was thinking about intimate urban gardens. We wanted it to feel personal and fun.

We had a very loose chicken theme, because the Corson Building has a chicken coop (and I like them.) Vera Wang meets chicken coop! Our colors were peachy-grapefruity and minty/aqua.

We had many DIY projects: save-the-date card and wedding invitations, dyed coffee filter garlands, watercolored heart garlands, ombre-dyed napkins, welcome bag stamps, seedbomb wedding favors, and our cake garlands and cake topper.

Audra’s advice for brides: Definitely be inspired by all the wonderful ideas in blogs and magazines, but keep it an honest reflection of who you and your groom really are and what you love. Not because it’s “your day,” but because it will make it meaningful for everyone.

From the bride: When we got engaged, my husband and I knew we didn’t want something traditional. Our main goals were that our guests enjoy themselves. We gathered all our favorite parts of wedding that we had been to, as well as removing the parts we didn’t to make the day all our own. I looked at Ruffled quite a bit for inspiration and I was thrilled with the results! All of the decoration was hand done by me and my amazing wedding coordinator put it together exactly like I wanted. We pulled in lots of favors and friends to make the day unique as well, which I really enjoyed.
