Today's #RealWedding is brought to you by Tandem Tree Photography, who was the lucky photographer hired to capture Martha and Stephen's very special day! The couple's wedding was held at the historic Hope Glen Farm, a restored 1860's civil war barn located in Cottage Grove, Minnesota.
The couple first met through friends at a coffee shop in downtown Minneapolis. As soon as Stephen laid eyes on Martha, he was captivated and knew he wanted to get to know her! Little did he know that less than a year later, they would be getting married!
The couple decided to see each other before the wedding for photos, but they wanted to make it special. So Stephen waited outside the barn for Martha as she snuck up on him. Then the adorable couple got to take each other in for a bit before things got busy and crazy!
Aren't they too cute? The next set of photos showcases the beautiful bridal party and their very chic and dapper wedding attire! Plus, aren't the flowers (both the bouquets and the boutonnieres) gorgeous? We can't get enough of that yellow accent color! Especially against the men's gray tux color.
The outdoor ceremony was held right there at the farm as well. Though it was a hot, summer day - the bride and groom had an overwhelming amount of friends and family come out to support them! You could tell there was a lot of love running through that little farm.
After the outdoor ceremony, the party moved into the barn which the couple had decorated with draped lights and rustic decor. Not to mention, each table was set with wild flowers in delicate vases which brought the woodsy feeling indoors.
The couple used U.S. States as their designating factor for their seating chart on the place cards. We love how they chose to display the place cards with clothes pins on a large photo frame! Here's a little peek at more of their rustic decor. Don't you love the look and feel of these tables?
After dinner came the loving speeches, the couple's first dance and then of course, the dance party! And does this group know how to boogie! They danced all night long, what a blast!
What an amazing day the couple had! And they did such a beautiful job with everything, to the venue to the decorations, to the color scheme and more. We wish Stephen and Martha the very best in their happy ever after!
