Rustic and Romantic - A Minnesota {BARN} Summer Wedding // Wedding Day Prep (Vol. 6)

Wouldn't you love your
special day
to be filled with
rustic decor,
whimsical antiques,
romantic flowers,
and warm earth tones
on a summer day?
During the Easter holiday, I was able to spend some quality time with my friend Britt, her fiance Adam and his family. After church and brunch they were nice enough to show me (their very curious artsy friend) some of the plans and inspirations for their August Barn Wedding
They have already collected shabby chic furniture, antique china and soft fabrics to create the perfect romantic setting for their special day.

Britt and I have known each other since she was a sophomore in high school and I had just moved to Minnesota after college. We became good friends through fun coffee dates, performing on a dance troupe, youth group gatherings and trips to Honduras. One summer we also took a road trip with a group of girlfriends to Colorado. Over the years we have had many girl talks about school, family, friends, and of course ... love.

Speaking of love ... Britt and Adam have been together for just about a decade (they started dating in high school). So this wedding will be greatly anticipated by all of their friends and family. If I had to describe this cute, young couple I would say that they are a combination of

Vintage meets Modern,
Eclectic meets Traditional, 
and Whimsical meets Simple.

The groom, Adam, is extremely creative and talented in many types of design. He has taken it upon himself to dream up and construct a beautiful, Degas-inspired wedding gown for his bride. While Adam is busy creating things, I can guarantee that Britt will be coordinating all of the wedding details like it's a breeze. As long as I've known my friend, she has always been gifted in organization and event planning. She was even my very first hire as a shipping assistant. My business was fresh and she was able to help me when things had begun to get a bit overwhelming. It is fun to reflect on our history and friendship when she is about to experience her BIG DAY. As you can see from their engagement day photo, Britt and Adam are very smitten with each other and can't wait to walk down the aisle at their rustic and romantic Minnesota barn wedding. The setting will truly be magical!

This is what I call
