For Kim and Tyler choosing the ceremony site was an easy choice since they were both members of the Fargo Baptist Church. Having been raised on farms, they wanted to host their reception at their newly established farm “Rupp Farm”. Kim’s sisters helped with the wedding planning which took place just 2 months before the wedding.

The Date May 26

Kim and Tyler’s wedding was a collaboration of DIY projects made by family and friends. They wanted a wedding that would represent their simple and modest lifestyle. Kim even designed her custom gown that was made of four different lace patterns and lined with silk fabric that fit perfect with her outdoor country wedding.
