This bride and groom envisioned a simple and rustic outdoor wedding at the bride’s home in Southeastern Minnesota. Both the bride and groom grew up on family farms, and the wedding took place in the country about a mile from the bride’s family’s farm. It was important that the wedding be budget friendly yet project the charm of the country to welcome their guests. The wedding went off without a hitch except for the rain. Because of the light rain pre-ceremony, a quick decision was made to move the ceremony under the reception tent. It was a lucky move because it poured for about 10 minutes during the ceremony. After the ceremony, it didn’t rain for the rest of the day.
