A Country Wedding

Now that the weather is cooler, I’m taking a mental vacation to the dreamiest wedding I’ve ever seen.

Landon and Jenna were married on her family’s farmstead just outside of Carrington, North Dakota, among family, friends, vintage treasures and heaps of wildflowers.

Here’s your inside look at the wedding of the year.

Start off with a cold drink…

…cool off with a program fan, featuring original art by the bride’s sister, Lissie Hoffert.

Then join everyone on the lawn for the ceremony.

Jenna and Landon were married by a family friend, serenaded with Beatles songs by her dad and sisters and celebrated their first kiss as husband and wife under a birch arbor made by the groom.

Then it’s on to the social hour, with beautiful snacks on silver trays…

…and lots of ice cold champagne.

Now it’s off to the tent for dinner…

…where the tables are laid…

…and full of dozens of pretty details…

…fluttering paper cranes…

…antique treasures and pots of wildflowers….

…and little jars of homemade jelly to take home as mementos.

And as darkness falls, it’s time for toasts, shots of homemade burnt sugar whisky and dancing under the stars.

Congratulations Landon and Jenna! May your lives together be as beautiful as your wedding day.
