We take great joy in sharing these real weddings with you as they are filled with rustic wedding style, creativity, and even a few DIY country wedding ideas along the way. Our hope is that these Real Country Weddings will inspire and guide you as you plan your own country wedding.

The wedding we are featuring this week is that of Alyssa and Brandon Stone in October of 2014. Married outdoors on a chilly fall day, mason jars, pumpkins, hay bales and washtubs were all part of the rustic decor.

Of course we had to ask her all the wonderful details about her perfect day!

Why did you choose a rustic wedding venue?

Marriage about compromise and while I had always wanted to get married at my home church, Brandon wanted to get married outside. Lucky for us my church had land with a nice green spot next to a corn field that fit perfectly with a rustic theme!

What was the favorite part of your wedding day?

I would say the most favorite part of my wedding day was how smoothly everything went. Literally nothing went wrong (that I know of!). Sharing such a special day with family and friends is something I will never forget. Plus I got to marry the man of my dreams and start the rest of our lives together!

Did you guys do anything special such as carry on a tradition, honor someone who couldn’t be there?

Both of our paternal grandparents had passed away along with an uncle that was very close to Brandon. To honor them at the wedding we had a frame with their name on it placed on reserved chairs in the front row.

What songs were a part of your day? First dance song? Father/daughter song?

My father walked me down the aisle to “Your Daddy’s Boots” by Dustin Lynch. Brandon and I walked back down the aisle as husband and wife to “Forever and Ever, Amen” by Randy Travis and our first dance was “When You Got A Good Thing” by Lady Antebellum.

We see the cowboy boots. What prompted the decision to wear boots?

I saw the boots online on Country Outfitter’s (smart girl!) website a few years ago and instantly fell in love. I knew that they would look perfect with a wedding dress! My parents bought them for me for my birthday and I had been saving them for the big day!

Please share anything that was extra special about your day.

To me everything was special about our big day! But knowing that we did everything ourselves and it all turned out perfect made it extra special. My dad built our arch from scratch and cut the logs that held the mason jars that lined the aisles. My mother made all the corsages and boutineer for the attendants. We were surrounded by family and friends that loved us very much. What more could you ask for?

Sounds like a perfect day! Now for the photos!
