This beautiful rustic wedding in blue is just filled with details that we’re sure you’ll love. Our bride wore a beautiful gown with lace sleeves that were absolutely stunning on her. Her bridesmaids wore blue cocktail dresses with matching bouquets that were unique to each one. The ceremony was held in the sunny outdoors where the altar was adorned by a pretty arch made with twigs and flowers. The rest of the details, such as the rustic wedding cake, the tables, the popcorn bar (yes, a POPCORN bar), are all noteworthy because of its rustic but lovely appearances. Congratulations Katie & Wesley!
