You know how we adore a stunning rustic elegant wedding! Katie and Michael’s extremely gorgeous wedding at Barn with a Cross at the Brigantino Ranch in Hollister, CA was filled to the brim with rustic, elegant wedding details that are sure to inspire you.

Tucked away behind a hidden oak tree grove down a windy road, is the Brigantino Family Ranch … the perfect venue for a rustic elegant wedding. Katie and Michael had an outdoor ceremony and a beautiful elegant, chandelier barn reception on the grounds on a gorgeous, sunny fall day.

Floral Lace Pocket Wedding Invite from MagnetStreet
“I had been searching for the perfect invitation and just wasn’t finding it anywhere. I stumbled upon MagnetStreet when looking for a magnet “Save the Date” and was surprised to see that they had such a wide variety of invitations as well. The part that sold it for me was that I could alter every single aspect of the invitations to make it how I wanted it..”

That DRESS!
“I got my wedding dress at Trudy’s in Campbell and I had the best experience! The lady helping me listened to what I was looking for and pulled some dresses she thought I would like … and she hit the nail on the head! Once she put the veil on me, she had all the ladies that were with me in tears.”

Their engagement story
“My husband owns a restaurant, and we decided to host a Super Bowl party there last year. At halftime, he had me go into the back office to turn down the sound on the TVs so we could announce the winner of the halftime pool. When I came back out, there he was down on one knee in front of all our family and friends!”

No first look!
“We did not decide to do a first look. I wanted to see his first reaction as I walked down the aisle.”

Day-of improvising … it happens to everyone!
“Right as our ceremony started the sound from the officiant’s microphone kept cutting out and crackling. The DJ ended up cutting the feed and our officiant just started talking louder and louder. I had to chuckle as it was happening. I know at least the first few rows could definitely hear what he was saying!”

Something borrowed, blue, old, and new
“My something old was a piece of lace from my mom’s wedding dress that was sewn into the hem of my dress along with an emerald ring from my grandmother who had just passed away about 6 months before the wedding. Something new was my dress, shoes, and accessories. Something borrowed was a bracelet from one of my dear friends and bridesmaid. Since I didn’t have anything blue, I ended up painting my toenails the brightest blue I could find!”

Mmmm … homemade wedding pie
“I’ve never been a cake person, but I love pie! Once our family members heard that we wanted to have pie at the wedding, a bunch of them volunteered to make some pies. We ended up with a gorgeous pie display made by those closest to us, it was really special!”

The Perfect Botanical Gardens Engagement Session in Milwaukee

Apr 17 2018

Insanely sweet and vivacious; this stunning botanical gardens engagement shoot is the perfect match for engaged couple, Stephanie and Tyler. The talented husband and wife team at Oak and Iron Photography snapped photos of the gorgeous couple in the Milwaukee area, among trees, gorgeous foliage, the dreamy countryside, and even a downtown brewery. Stephanie shared some of the highlights of their perfect photo shoot day with us.

“We first started the shoot at the Boerner Gardens where it is very lively with flowers and foliage. We then went to the downtown Milwaukee area. We strolled the river walk and stopped by the original Pabst Brewery and took pictures under the infamous sign. It was the perfect day for a photo shoot!”

Their love story and save the date from MagnetStreet is as charming as ever. Stephanie found and personalized a gorgeous save the date that is a perfect match to the leafy crown she adorned for their botanical gardens engagement shoot.

“I chose MagnetStreet because I know I wanted a magnet save-the-date so that our guests could stick it to their fridge and remember the date for the months leading up to our wedding. … I could access the website by Googling save the date wedding magnets, and I was impressed with the design selection and price!”

It’s hard to believe their session is not a styled shoot … it’s so real and simply wonderful! The love between Stephanie and Tyler is perfectly captured throughout the boho-esque session. We’ll definitely be crushing on their botanical gardens engagement session for a long time!

“Tyler and I got engaged on December 17, 2016 while we were doing one of our favorite winter activities: snowmobiling. The trees were covered with fresh powdered snow and it was an absolutely breathtaking view. It was just him and I atop a large hill when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was perfect.”

Their upcoming barn wedding at the Over the Vines vineyard in Edgerton, Wisconsin, is sure to be equally as stunning as their e-session!

“Our wedding colors are wine (very fitting since it’s on a vineyard), grey, and white. I am incorporating a lot of flowers and greenery to make our end of the summer wedding perfect. Inside the barn, they have two gorgeous chandeliers hanging from the ceiling as well as string lights throughout to give it a very elegant feel. My florist, Heidi with Mod Bloom is helping my vision come alive and I can’t wait to see how she helps piece it all together for me with her amazing talents!”

Romantic Purple Outdoor Wedding At The Historical Castle Farms

Apr 4 2018

You are absolutely going to swoon over Victoria and Luke’s fairytale romantic purple outdoor wedding! The historical grounds of Castle Farms in northern Michigan are touted as one of the state’s premier historical attractions … so it’s easy to see why the gorgeous couple chose this as their wedding venue. The grounds feel historical European and really transports you back in time! The castle itself was designed to resemble similar architecture in Normandy, France. {We can’t believe this wedding is in Michigan!}

Romantic Purple Outdoor Wedding At The Historical Castle Farms

We love the soft shades of purple throughout the details and decor of their big day. Orchid and lavender hues packed a romantic punch against the rich greenery and lush scenery, providing the inspiration for our Exquisite summer color palette.

Lovely bride, Victoria, is just stunning in her lace-detailed dress with her groom looking quite dapper in a cool gray suit! The bride and her bridesmaids carried gorgeous light purple and white hydrangea bouquets, which is so softly sweet and romantic. Light classic floral centerpieces, lace, and baby’s breath perfectly complemented the romantic feel of this purple outdoor wedding!

Orchid is a soft, romantic shade of pinkish purple that works well with almost any other color, as you can see with this pretty palette. From casual to formal weddings, this gorgeous summer palette is perfection.
