“This wedding was a true labor of love. Jenna’s dress made by her mom (with pockets!), the copper chandelier made by her father, the gorgeous stationery made by the couple’s friends, and the custom cake topper made by the bride’s brother, all added a special touch to a reception that was full of genuine love and excitement for Jenna and Bill.”

The bride’s vintage wedding dress was made by her mother. We couldn’t imagine a more special way for a bride to incorporate the love shared between her and her mother on her wedding day. The bride truly glowed in her perfect rustic and chic wedding gown.
The bridal party each wore something unique. The bridesmaid dresses were made of vintage pink fabric that they paired with nude heels or flats of their choice. The groomsmen jackets were shades of gray and navy. They each wore a light blue dress shirt underneath, while the groom stood out in white.
The bride and groom selected beautiful pink peonies as their flower of choice. Shamrock & Thistle created the most beautiful bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids. During the outdoor ceremony, flowers were hung in mason jars at the end of each row on rustic white chairs.
The wedding stationery that included the invitations, maps and menus, were designed and created by friends of the bride and groom. The rustic white cake designed by Butterfly Bakery had a unique cake topper that was made by the bride’s brother. Guests wrote a message for the bride and groom on quilt squares hung next to pictures of the couples’ parents and grandparents on their wedding day. The copper chandelier hung above the dance floor was hand-made by the bride’s father. The flowers at the reception were beautifully arranged in vintage mason jars and white vases across the tables.
The reception was held inside the Steinhart Lodge. Gorgeous lighting was hung from the dance floor to the dinner tables. Guests enjoyed a relaxed and fun cocktail hour playing outdoor games with family and friends, that lasted late into the night after the celebration and dancing began.
As always, The Mullers captured this rustic barn wedding so beautifully.
