We are heading west today for a rustic chic St. Onge, SD wedding.
I am a total city girl and my husband is a cowboy so we wanted something that combined both of our backgrounds. We decided on a “rustic-chic” theme for our wedding. Our colors were a mixture of gray and yellow with accent colors of white, peach, and pink. We chose a beautiful ranch in Belle Fourche, SD as our venue because it fit our theme perfectly and would accommodate all of our guests. Our wedding was outside in front of an adorable chapel and the reception was in a two story barn. I was able to use local vendors to provide us with most everything we needed. Our goal was for everyone to have an amazing time. We had a photobooth with tons of props. I married into an amazingly talented family that helped with decorating, assisting with DIY products, and made all the floral arrangements! My husbands’ aunt is a florist so she did all of our flowers and decorating, she is amazing. I absolutely love sunflowers so we used them in decorating, table arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnieres. Because our location was so stunning we kept the decorations to a minimum. We also did a lot of DIY projects. I ordered our programs from ETSY. They created the program and then I printed them all off and put them together. My husband’s mom made the flower girls “getting ready” dresses. I made hangers for the bridesmaids and flower girl’s dresses. Instead of having regular seating for our guests we used hay bales and covered them with fabric. We recycled lace for my husband’s grandma and used it on the table decorations and bouquets. We found old stumps of wood that we cut and used for table decorations. Old doors were fashioned together to make the backdrop for our dessert table. A friend of mine owns a vintage shop in town and she created signs from pallets and old barn wood. We completely forgot about ties for the ring bearers, so my dad made them out of pieces of ribbon! We made sticker labels online with our wedding logo and used the stickers on water bottles and the silverware. Chandeliers from my husband’s aunt’s garage were hung outside for lighting. A lot of our decorating ideas came from pinterest, various wedding blogs, and etsy. Our photographer was a very important element for our wedding. I told our photographer that I would do anything for a good image, hence me getting up on a hay bale! – Tasha (Bride)
