Laurita Winery was the ideal venue for an inspiration shoot to showcase summertime soirees with its endless grapevines and myriad of nooks. We played off the natural beauty of the location and kept things very organic. The vineyard’s greenery and beautiful sunsets inspired a color palette of pale blues and greens, creamy whites, ivories, and hints of rust. The deserted barn and silos inspired a design for a rustic, yet chic and feminine, weddingscape. By mixing rust, mercury glass, burlap and lace, we had a lush blend of textures and colors that evoked a feeling of endless summer days. Our table was created with antique blue mismatched china, burlap accents, mercury glass chargers and lace die-cut menus. A runner of sewn-together antique doilies laid under an array of sweet summer blooms and succulents. In a quiet corner of the vineyard, an antique gate displayed placecards and mason jars with tealights hung from the tree above. The delicious cake and desserts sat on silver serving trays beneath hanging window panes and a fabric banner that read “sweetness”. A beverage station sat along the vines to help guests keep their cool: mason jars wrapped in twine, burlap and lace served as glasses for the yummy limeade and blueberry sangria that were displayed atop an antique shrapnel box. Vintage keys were tied to little love notes and were pinned to chicken wire on an old ladder. The sweetheart table was situated between old silos and draped in vintage cream lace with a set of antique plates, mercury glass, soft florals, and votives. Their sweetheart chairs were adorned with the cutest “Mr” and “Mrs” fabric banners. Our bride, adorned in a spiral lace Birnbaum & Bullock gown, carried a beautiful bouquet of wildflowers tied in natural fabrics and finished off with a cute blue wool ribbon. Her look was the perfect complement to the organic décor and stunning setting.

Minnesota Farm Wedding

Vintage Weddings

It’s always a treat to hear from Geneoh Photography, who always shoot the most beautiful and heartwarming weddings. Brittany’s groom, Adam, made her wedding dress by hand! That ladies, is a contender for groom of the year. See all images from their wedding in their gallery!

Minnesota Farm Wedding

It was important to us that the ceremony was the focus of the day- but we also wanted to throw a really great party. We have been together for eight years (I was 16 and had braces when we started dating!) and so we are blessed with a community of friends and family who know us well as a couple and are invested in our relationship. We envisioned a weekend celebration with all our loved ones coming from around the country to our hometown.

My wedding dress was definitely the biggest DIY project of the event. Adam is a tailor and from the beginning he wanted to design and make it. We started with lots of sketches and photos of things I liked, and he took it away from there! He bought with a book on 18th century corsets, and taught himself how to make one using my measurements. It was made of silk duppioni and silk chiffon, and then antique french lace on the back. The skirt was silk chiffon. He finished it 13 days before the wedding, and while it caused a bit of anxiety, it was worth it to marry him in something he had put so much time into!

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Make sure you’re talking with your fiance about things other than the wedding! Adam and I would have wedding-free evenings, where we went to dinner or hung out with friends and there was no wedding talk allowed. Use your loved ones’ skills, because they want to help! At first I felt horrible asking for people’s time and energy (for free!), but then I realized how much people loved helping and contributing. Remember, your wedding is just one day of celebrating your marriage. It’s the marriage that’s forever.

We wanted the day to feel creative, comfortable, fun and like us. We both love antiques and are creative people at home and at work, so we wanted something that was completely unique to us. Our color scheme was determined by the ties my husband picked out for his groomsmen. I knew I wanted my girls to have different colored dresses, so we decided to pick the ties first and that kind of set our feel as far as invitations and other decorations went.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Plan and brainstorm with your groom! My groom was amazing. If I had ideas or something I wanted to have, he made it happen and he spent the morning of our wedding making sure all the things were set up perfectly so I could just relax and get ready. It was so, so, so great. Our wedding was definitely a shared vision….although sometimes I think he carried more than his fair share of the work!

Also, people may look at you weird when you tell them you are getting married in your friend’s backyard, or that you want banana pudding instead of a wedding cake but ultimately the day is about you and your soon-to-be-husband so do whatever makes your day the happiest for you two. Don’t worry about anyone else! Enjoy the day!
