Prepare to be enchanted by this romantic and rustic Indiana farm wedding, so beautifully captured by Jennifer Van Elk Photography. A meaningful family affair, the bride and groom exchanged vows and celebrated at the bride’s parents’ farm—the same place where her parents were married 25 years earlier. We adore all of the rustic elements {weathered frames, mason jar arrangements and handwritten signage} with a decidedly sophisticated twist. A muted color palette and simple dècor let the newlyweds and their breathtaking surroundings take center stage. At the end of the evening, guests were encouraged to light a wish lantern, making it a magical time for the couple and their family and friends.

While this event took place at a private family farm, you can easily replicate this rustic style at a similar location with the help of some talented wedding professionals. We’ve recommended several talented vendors below to get you started.
