Flynt and Dana planned a homespun wedding for only 15 guests, with a much larger reception to follow. We love the idea of both intimacy and celebration. The simplicity of the details is perfect for those of you brides planning a rustic wedding! One of our favorite ideas was the use of vintage seed packets as escort cards. How cute is that?

Flynt and Dana told us a little about their wedding:
We wanted a wedding that epitomized who we are as a couple: fun and relaxed. Our ceremony was intimate with only 15 guests, while our reception began an hour later and was much larger. One of our must-haves was hiring a band rather than a DJ for the party, and we weren’t disappointed in the least. Luckily, the venue has been in Flynt’s family for several generations, and he has a strong attachment to the property itself, so not only was it a gorgeous backdrop, but it also contributed greatly to Flynt’s upbringing. We couldn’t have picked a better place with more significance in our lives. A bit of advice for the bride-and-groom-to-be: have a built-in break between your ceremony and reception for the two of you to sit down and eat together. That alone time forced us to slow down and enjoy the moment. Not to mention, we would never have eaten an entire meal if we were busy greeting all of our guests.
