Okay, before we dive into the details of this rustic summer wedding, I have to tell you about the proposal. Max actually took Jade out on a helicopter ride. She looked out of the window and saw “Will you marry me?” spelled out on the ground below! Isn’t that the best?
This couple got engaged in the fall, but they didn’t want a winter wedding: so they eloped to Vegas, and then held their dream rustic summer wedding in May. It worked out perfectly! They had their sealing ceremony at the Logan Temple, where Jade grew up, and then held their reception at The Smith Barn in Lewiston.
Fun Western Elements Completed This Rustic Summer Wedding Look!
This barn venue gave them the perfect backdrop for all of the western details that helped to create this rustic summer wedding. They incorporated wagon wheels into the floral displays and lanterns on the tablescapes, which was so cute! The white and green florals gave everything a romantic flair. White balloons kept it feeling playful and celebratory, and that atmosphere was definitely helped along by the popcorn and a huge soda bar!
The timeline of the wedding day had to be adjusted a couple times due to some unexpected problems with vendors, which left us with a bit more time in the middle of the day than we’d originally thought. So the videographer, Sarah Rasmussen, and I decided to do a few more bridals of the couple in a nearby green field of alfalfa. The photos in that field turned out AMAZING and sooo romantic. This allowed the couple to enjoy some more one-on-one time and made for some epic views.
Max and Jade definitely share a special love and friendship. They kept making each other laugh throughout the day and had so much fun celebrating the ay with their family and friends. There was never a dull moment and I loved the opportunity to photograph it all.
