Country charm

At long last, an actual wedding post! Today photographer Katie Lewis shares a charming country wedding she recently photographed. Enjoy :)

Tenielle and Scott were married at an adorable country church in Leonard, ND. Their wedding was totally and completely about who they are and celebrating their backgrounds. Not to mention incredibly home-made! The groom wore a kilt made in Scotland of his family’s tartan. The bride wore a dress that she designed and made herself. Yup she made her own dress! She also made the bridesmaid dresses!

During and after the ceremony they incorporated wedding traditions from their many backgrounds. For example, they took a piece of tartan and bound their hands together during their vows. This is a Scottish tradition symbolizing being bound together in marriage. As they left the church the wedding party laid fir boughs on the ground for the bride and groom to walk on; a German tradition.

The reception dinner took place on the front lawn of the church. The bride’s brother built a wooden structure behind the couple’s sweetheart table. Every table had beautiful different china. The bride’s mother made all of the food including the amazing desserts!

When the bride and groom left they changed into more comfortable clothes. The bride wore her grandmother’s hat that she wore on her wedding day. They took off on a horse drawn carriage and then took off for their honeymoon in New Zealand.
