Inspired by the 400 acres of lush vineyards, open fields and rustic barns of Rum River Vineyard in Hillman, Minnesota, Katie Knutson (25 and an insurance agent) and Jon Hein (29 and a maintenance mechanic) had an ultimate country wedding. Wood details, mason jars and textured burlap brought their vision to life, while textured florals, gorgeously arranged by Toni's Flowers, brought plenty of romance to the day. One of our favorite details of the day was Katie's stunning modified A-line dress. She found the beautiful gown at David's Bridal before she was even engaged, and could not stop thinking about how gorgeous it was. From the rosette-covered skirt and ruched bodice to the rhinestone detailing, what's not to love? See all our favorite details, beautifully captured by Kate Wenzel Photography, below.

Toni's Flowers created a gorgeous, textured arrangement for Katie to carry down the aisle. The bouquet included purple succulents, blush roses, white lisianthus and blush astilbes.
Katie and Jon wanted all the stationery to set the tone for the day. The ceremony programs were made to look like they were printed on wood, to reflect the country theme.
The bridesmaids wore the same dress from Wedding Shoppe. Katie loved the mocha color for the country wedding while the lace overlay on the bodice softened the look and added a little vintage flair.
The bridesmaids carried champagne-colored roses, blush roses, white baby's breath, white sweet peas, blush astilbes and mint dusty miller in their bouquets. The arrangements, gorgeously done by Toni's Flowers, echoed Katie's bouquet for a cohesive look.
Before heading to the rustic wooden barn for the reception at Rum River Vineyard in Hillman, Minnesota, Katie and Jon exchanged vows outside. They loved the country feel of the space, and guests even sat on hay bales for seating.
Jon and the groomsmen wore taupe suits for the casual country wedding. Katie and Jon wanted something a little different and less stuffy, and brown fit their look. Although the groomsmen wore peach ties, Jon stood out with a camouflage tie. The bridesmaids added a little vintage flair to the look with lace overlay on the bodice of their mocha dresses. It all worked together!
The White Barn Loft, with its tall ceilings and hardwood floors, was perfect for Katie and Jon's reception at Rum River Vineyard in Hillman, Minnesota. The original hay loft had the rustic charm aura they wanted, and the string lights and chandeliers added plenty of romance.
The reception tables were topped with mason jars filled with yellow alstromeria and wildflowers. Burlap, unfinished wooden rounds and rose petals brought the shabby-chic look to life.
Although Katie and Jon served Key lime, vanilla and peanut butter cupcakes to their guests, they also had a traditional one-tier cake for them to cut. The confection was topped with an arrow-through-the-heart wire topper with their initials.
With 400 acres of open fields, lush vineyards and rustic barns, Rum River Vineyard in Hillman, Minnesota, was an easy choice for Katie and Jon to host their wedding. In fact, the vineyards boast 14 of the 22 Minnesota grapes produced by the University of Minnesota for making wine. Photo ops, anyone?
