A Chic Rustic Wedding at Chandler Hill Vineyards in Defiance, Missouri

Rustic elegance has never looked better than it did in Andrea Tate (25 and a special education teacher) and Daniel Wiele’s (25 and works in sales) chic vineyard wedding. The couple used simple details to create a romantic aura without overpowering the stunning venue, and the soft mint, blush and ivory color palette perfectly completed the look. Andrea and Daniel worked with Les Bouquets to create the floral arrangements that brought the entire vision to life. “The flowers were artistically put together by the creative eye of my florist Les Bouquets,” Andrea says. “We have known the owners, Melinda and Matt, for years and were thrilled to use their skill set for our wedding day. I can say I put a lot of trust into my florist, knowing she would encompass what I wanted. I also let her add her own touch on the wedding day, and I was delighted with everything.” The neutral peony, ranunculus and baby's breath floral arrangements added a touch of romance to the outdoor ceremony at Chandler Hill Vineyards in Defiance, Missouri. Andrea and Daniel chose the venue because they wanted a venue whose beauty spoke for itself, and they definitely found it. One of the best parts was the simple escort cards done by a friend of Andrea’s at Society Paper Goods, which were displayed in a bed of baby’s breath in vintage wooden boxes that set the tone for the shabby chic reception. A tip from the bride: “Take 5 to 10 minutes to sneak away from your guests to have some one-on-one time together during the reception. Daniel and I snuck down to the vineyards and talked about the night and looked up at the stars. It was such a short and sweet moment to reminisce.” See all of our favorite details, beautifully captured by Lisa Hessel Photography, below!
