Choose a color spectrum and have every bridesmaid pick out any dress they love in that palette. Either make a mood board by cutting out shades from magazines, or drop by a paint store to grab some swatches. Then copy and mail it to each of the girls and let them go shopping! Make sure to have everyone text you a photo of their winner before cutting off the tags – just in case two girls choose the same dress. We loved how the flowers pulled all the colors together perfectly. To see more from Elizabeth & Marc's rustic wedding, click here!
Elizabeth & Marc's wedding took place at her parents' acreage in Strawberry Point, IA. Personal touches abounded and every detail accentuated the natural setting with rustic elegance. These included wildflowers in shades of blue and purple, an intimate backyard ceremony under the birch trees and programs printed on fans to keep guests cool. Elizabeth's uncle even made tree trunk centerpieces. The atmosphere was relaxed and jovial, a mood enhanced by the beauty and informality of the outdoors setting. The property had several beautiful locations to photograph portraits, which you'll see below. The day was wonderful and we're thankful we got to be a part of it!
