Rustic Elegance in Menomonie
Clarissa and Adam - October 16, 2022
"Adam and I wanted to get married in a place that had a rustic yet comforting feel. Once we toured The Barn at Copper Creek, we knew it was the perfect location. It was an additional bonus that the staff was just as excellent!
Adam and I designed and crafted many parts of our wedding personally. We enjoy turning ideas into reality. To fit our vision, we made the bouquets, boutonnières, corsages, centerpieces, and decorations.
We opted for creativity instead of conformity regarding clothing. The foundation of my dress was purchased online, and then I sewed fabric and embellishments to the dress personally and with the help of Sue Anderson Alterations. Adam visualized getting married in a red suit, which was initially challenging to find. We found the perfect shade of red at Men’s Warehouse, and then he accessorized as he wanted.
The wedding party was given a fall-themed pallet of colors and shades we were using, and everyone had the freedom to buy or use a suit or dress that matched their likes and comfortability.
We like to do things untraditionally. We have helped with many other weddings because we enjoy doing it!"
