We love everything about this rustic California wedding from April Smith Photography!
Nothing beats a good behind the scenes wedding story. Amanda, of April Smith Photography, met the bride, Ashlie, at the nail salon. The two got to chatting about wedding planning for a rustic CA wedding, after that mani Lake Oak Meadows was a no brainer. This Temecula,CA wedding destination set the tone for Ashlie and Kevin’s elegant celebration. The happy couple met on the lawn for an adorable Fist Look before tying the not before loved ones on the property grounds. Inside the reception, personal touches like a custom “Mr. and Mrs.” sign and DIY popcorn bar continued the day’s laid-back, yet sophisticated theme.

Fall in love with Annie and Bill’s classic farm wedding at Gilbertsville Farmhouse in South Berlin, NY.
Nothing says “rustic” quite like a picturesque farm in the heart of upstate New York! Bill and his buddies readied together in one of the property’s glamping tents before the ceremony began. After the “I do’s” the newlyweds explored the grounds to for some beautiful portraits. Inside the barn, simple burlap runners and wildflower arrangements kept to the venue’s country chic theme. Custom lovebird pint glasses, framed table numbers and mismatched antique china added a personal touch to the details of the day.
This plantation wedding in Mt. Pleasant, SC celebrates the best of historic elegance.
Sarah and Jason chose Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens for its refined character and homespun charm. The couple met on the grounds for a sweet First Look session before Sarah’s father escorted her down the aisle to the ceremony at the property’s main gate. After the “I do’s” guests convened on the lawn for cocktails and games. Inside the barn, sophisticated touches like ivory linens, gold votives, and a plush lounge added an air of glitz to the traditionally rustic barn. The party continued onto the open air patio, where breathtaking views of the surrounding water stole the show. Thank you to Donna Von Bruening for sharing this wonderful photos!
