Read an Excerpt

The moment you say yes, the weddingday dream begins to take shape. Look closely—what do you see in this vision? Is it fully formed or filled with possibility? Will you hear the crunch of autumn leaves underfoot as you walk down the aisle? Will you stand together, hand in hand, in the fresh country air to promise “till death do us part?” Will cherished guests sip champagne from crystal coupes and dance with you under the glow of lantern light? A rustic wedding is all of this and more.
It’s the peace of putting your personal touch on this momentous event. It’s the thrill of beautiful details that you’ll never forget. It’s the joy of marrying your best friend, surrounded by love, in a place that captivates your spirit. Welcome to your rustic wedding day.
