Eeeep! As I type this a wave of panic is washing over me. How did we get to the one month mark? Where has the time gone? And what have I been doing? I’ve been feeling super busy with work, and trying to enjoy the summer, and all the other weddings and events we have, but I also feel like I haven’t been doing anything wedding related. Kate asked me a few weeks ago if I had a check list and I said yes. And she said, “You’re lying, aren’t you?” And I said yes. Haha I feel like I don’t even have time to make a check list!
We finally got our invites out a few weeks ago. People kept offering to help stuff envelopes and I thought, “How hard could that be?” But man was it time consuming! We’ve almost received all of our RSVPs, and it definitely starts feeling real once we realize people are actually coming to this thing. We also just picked up our marriage license yesterday and, again, this is getting pretty real! The clerk asked if we were coming back to get married there and I was so tempted to say yes! There have been so many stressful moments the past few months where I just wanted to throw my hands up and say, “Meet me at the courthouse.” After some deep breathing exercises I think we’re back on track and all good again. I feel like we have a million loose ends to tie up for this final month but I really don’t know where to start tackling them. We have friends and family coming into town two weeks before the wedding so that’s my deadline of finishing everything. That’s really just two weeks away so wish me luck! I sure am gonna need it!
We can’t decide on our favorite part of this rustic Indiana wedding, we love it all! The bride looks so gorgeous in her gown and the soft pink and peach tones adds the romance to the rustic. We love all the cute personal details they added like the Star Wars cake topper, all so beautifully captured by Cathy and David Photographers!

From their Photographer: Katie and Keth wanted a reclusive spot for their outdoor ceremony and discovered the beautiful County Line Orchard in Hobart, Indiana. When guests arrived, wooden signs (handcrafted by the groom) directed guests to hop on a tractor-pulled wagon, which carried them to the ceremony site nestled in the orchard.
At the reception, held in the rustic red barn, Keth surprised Katie by pulling out his guitar and singing to her, accompanied by a few of his groomsmen singing backup. The couple decorated with a number of personal touches, including Star Wars cake toppers and cork place card holders. My favorite touch was their twist on a guest book: a wine rack full of empty bottles, each marked with a different anniversary year of their marriage, for guests to place messages in. At the end of the night, the bottles were corked and won’t be opened until the anniversary year of each bottle. The couple and their friends and family partied away the rest of the night with dancing, doughnuts, and a prop-filled photobooth.
Hi there! Sorry for our mini break from blogging! We were changing servers for the site last week and also wedding planning has gotten a bit crazy! (More details on that). In the meantime, why don’t you swoon with us over BHLDN‘s latest dresses starting with this Carina Corset and Ashan Skirt combination. Isn’t it dreamy? We’re loving the color!
