Real Wedding Wednesday: Vibrant Fall Farmington Ranch Wedding

23 Jan

What do you get when you mix chic and country?  This vibrant fall wedding in the bride’s hometown of Farmington, Minnesota.  Lindsey and John had dated for many years, but soon after getting engaged they were posed with the question should they get married this fall or next fall.  They decided to get married this fall and planned their wedding in just over three months.  Before the bride shared this with me, I would have never guessed it though.  No detail of their outdoor ranch wedding seems overlooked from the bright pink and orange hues infused into the attire and decor to the bride’s accessories created by her fashion designer cousin to the local band and mechanical bull and that’s just to name a few of the splendid details.  This fall fete captured by EyeSpy Photography is jam-packed full of style and fun!

From the Bride:
I am originally from Farmington so we had our wedding at St. Michael’s Church in Farmington.  We wanted to have an outdoor reception and my folks have a farm just south of Farmington; so it worked out perfectly.  We had a gorgeous white tent from Après Party and Tent Rental.  Our colors were pink and orange.  We wanted to hang on to summer colors as long as we could.
John and I met in college.  We were introduced by my random freshmen year roommate.  We dated for many years; however we just got engaged 6.9.12.  We wanted to get married in the fall so we took one week to decide if it would be fall 2012 or 2013.  John only wanted one thing…A BAND!  He loves to dance.  The Mud Dogs were available so we booked the date.  So…100 days later we got HITCHED!!!  The day went off without a hitch; well the weather could have been a bit warmer, but overall it was a GREAT day.  The mechanical bull was a huge hit.

    I love this idea of this outside farm wedding. It sounds like it was done at a private location, but can you refer me to a location like this or similiar??

      I adore outdoor farm weddings too! This bride and groom were married on the bride’s parents’ farm. I’d be happy to recommend a similar location if I know of one! What area are you hoping to get married near?
