Minnesota Stone Barn Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Is there a better time of the year for a rustic soiree than the Fall? I think not. This ultra chic barn wedding shot by Eric Lundgren Photography is the perfect example of rustic elegance. Love the little vintage touches blended with modern styling. Anna wore her mother’s veil, such a great way to “something borrowed” and to honor your mom or mom-in-law if you want to rock a brand new gown.

From Eric Lundgren Photography: Anna and Dan hosted a classic wedding in southern Minnesota. They married under mature oak trees next to golden corn fields. The reception was held in a historic stone barn full of thoughtful DIY details. The couple chose a rustic harvest theme for decor, centerpieces of artichokes and apples over burlap runners complimented by the leaves gently falling during the ceremony.

As the groom is a stand-up comedian, the couple provided a homemade Mad Lib sheet at each place setting to entertain the guests before dinner.

The couple chose an apple crisp dessert so cardboard cakes were constructed and coated with a chalkboard finish, allowing children to decorate the cakes with colored chalk. The chalkboard theme was also used for the bar menu.

The venue itself was built in the early 1900s for the co-founder of the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Charles Mayo. The charming interior of the stone barn was lit with strings of lights to create a warm and intimate atmosphere for dinner and dancing.

When Jessica Zais Photography sent over this wedding I nearly fell off my chair. You know those couples that are so fun and loving, you can just fell the joy and can’t help but smile? This is Leigh and Russ. Their style is as gorgeous as their personalities (and their dog!). Love Leigh’s Ivy and Aster little number.

1920s Midnight in Paris Shoot

Wedding Design

If you haven’t seen the movie Midnight in Paris yet…well, let’s just say you must add it to your queue asap. The plot is just not amazing, but it is infused with oodles of inspiration that could be very easily translated onto a gorgeous vintage wedding. The New Orleans ladies of Magnolia Pair created a wedding shoot that did just that, impeccably. Joining talents with stationer Paper Moss, event stylist Tying the Knot, and with unbelievable flowers by Bee’s Wedding and Events, amongst a slew of other great vendors, these images are sure to bring you back to a time that never was.

From Magnolia Pair: After seeing Midnight in Paris, we couldn’t get it out of our minds to recreate a 1920s style shoot. That, combined with our love for New Orleans (and Holly’s new hometown!) became our inspiration for these images. We wanted to portray an intimate and romantic feel that carries you back into what it may have been like in Paris or New Orleans in the 20s…from the color palette and the gown to the sazerac (a cocktail created in New Orleans) and bonbons. The work of several vendors made the vision a reality and we couldn’t have done it without all of them.
