Rustic Church Barn Wedding

hilarious wedding party photo

When you share a love for all things camping, sports, beaches and rustic style the possibilities are pretty endless when it comes to designing a wedding that showcases that esthetic to your family and friends. Matt and April knew they wanted to plan a wedding that incorporated the nature they loved so much and tons of rustic charm. And from the light blue hued bridesmaids dresses to the moose cake toppers these two planned a wedding I think it’s safe to say these two blended those two styles perfectly.

How they met:

Matt and April met in the school band and wouldn’t have it any other way. They’ve known each other since the 6th grade, but didn’t spend significant time together until their 8th grade band trip to Geauga Lake where they became good friends. April and Matt continued to spend time together throughout high school, and for anyone who knows them knows, the joke goes that they had to date each other’s friends first. These two are truly high school sweethearts.
