Rustic Wisconsin Wedding

Mostly everything you see at this wedding was designed by the bride and groom with a little help from family and friends. Anna and Paul envisioned a unique, relaxed, “rustic romantic” day that incorporated some of their favorites: an outdoor ceremony, a barn, comfort food, sweet treats, live music, vintage finds, natural elements, and closest family & friends. It looks like they got exactly what they wanted and then some. This Rustic Wisconsin Wedding was photographed by The McCartneys Photography. To see more visit the full wedding gallery.

From Anna:

With a limited budget in our pocket, we prioritized pieces that were most important to us and trusted that our creative DIY touches would make up for the rest! Paul’s artistic & graphic skills soared in making all the paper goods. (He used the perfect font and made sure we consistently used it throughout. Even on his hand painted signs!) And my eye for detail and Martha-Stewart-love brought about many DIY projects that I truly enjoyed completing! Cost-friendly materials were found at rummages, Etsy, and local craft stores. (One of my favorites was the chandelier that sparkled above our heads during the ceremony. A simple $3 Goodwill find redone to shine!)
All of the natural and vintage elements that we incorporated in our day wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our family. Paul’s uncle and my brother and nephew were eager to stomp through the woods, gathering fallen branches and trees for our table décor. Paul’s aunt harvested her very own wheat for the ceremony décor! We scattered borrowed vintage crates, boxes, tables, mason jars and bottles throughout. And a friend’s Dad delivered a truckload of ferns to help soften and green-up the rustic venue. (SO grateful for our helpers!)

  15. Mmm, we’re always a fan of handpainted signs, and while we’d like to focus on rustic Illinois wedding photography, we’d also be happy to work with a couple like this in Illinois as well. Lovely work here.
