Q & A with the Bride:
1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?
The tall ceilings! St. Marys of the Woods’ O’Shaughnessy Hall is absolutely gorgeous. I always wanted tall ceiling at my wedding venue and this was perfect touch.
2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?
1. Peonies: I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to get them or not, and a couple days before the wedding, we were able to get them for the arrangements!
2. Favors: My mom and I made all of the jam and covered and tied the tags on. I’m not a super creative person, and I was glad that I was able to do something that everyone loved!
3. Stationary: I loved all of the stationary that Pink Poppy Ink did for the wedding. From the invitations to menus, programs and even the seating sign!
3. Give us the one moment from your wedding you can’t stop thinking about.
The moment we were announced husband and wife, and we walked down the aisle together. After the ceremony, we got to spend a few minutes together alone. It was so amazing to just be together since the day is so hectic leading up to that point! Plus, my dad doing a kick line to the beach boys at the reception!

Q&A with the Bride:
What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?
We were looking for an affordable, rustic-looking barn and after searching for months we were about to give up when we found this one and fell in love! We loved the location. It was just a short walk to the local covered bridge and old mill and the surrounding town was just as rustic and homey as the barn. It made everything come together.
Which details from your wedding were your favorites?
The ring “pillow” which was actually my an old Bible that belonged to my grandfather, who passed away when I was about 8 or so. I decorated the Bible with burlap and ribbon.
Our guest quilt. I had everyone send us a piece of cloth with their RSVP and I sewed them together before the wedding. It was the first quilt I had ever made and I was quite proud of myself. At the wedding we used it as a backdrop for a simple little DIY photobooth where guests could write on a chalkboard a message they wanted us to see and could dress up in silly hats, glasses, scarves and such.
In lieu of doing the typical sand pouring or unity candle we did a wine ceremony. It was very unique and turned out great.
I have to add that I loved just the general décor of the actually ceremony itself with the hay bale seating, the beautiful flower arrangements made by my aunt, the simple but elegant arch at the front, the crates we used as a table for the wine and the log cabin backdrop to top it all off.
Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.
When my husband and I were at the altar, I just remember trying to listen to our preacher and every time I would glance up at Josh he would just be staring at me with this cute little smile on his face! I guess he couldn’t keep his eyes off of me. I don’t know why but I had to keep myself from starting to giggle. I’ve never had anyone look at me so intently before I guess.
Megan & Jason
Jason and Megan met thru 4-H and their love of cattle. They both went to the state fair showing their cattle and ended up meeting and falling in love. Since cattle was such a huge part of their story they decided to have a “cow themed” wedding. They had chocolate covered cows, sugar cookies in the shape of cows, and the most beautiful cow cake toppers. They also decided to have a logo for their wedding which had the saying “Lotz of Love.” Lotz is the couples last name. All the wedding details and decorations where DIY by the bride and her family. When she first got engaged the brides father had expected to spend a large amount of the budget on a wedding decorator and planner. However, the bride knew exactly what she wanted and decided she could do it on her own..with a little help from her family.
