A Rustic Industrial Wedding at the Solar Arts Building in Minneapolis, Minnesota
Liz Scherer (32 and a physical therapist) and Nels Dyste (29 and an insurance agent) highlighted the beauty of their raw, industrial setting with a mix of vintage and rustic elements paired with the coolest custom escort cards.
Liz and an army of friends hand-cut vintage paper dolls before mounting each illustration on a wood disc. “It was a blast to assemble, though it took a little extra attention—I almost gave my grandma a doll in vintage lingerie!” Liz says.
Ferns added texture to Liz’s seasonal bouquet, while herbs and craspedia gave it the fresh-picked look she desired.
Instead of petal-filled baskets, flower girls carried flower “wands” tied with ribbon.
Table décor was kept to a minimum and included scattered candles alongside centerpieces housed in vintage chicken feeders. “My dad made the wood vessels himself,” Liz says of the rustic touch. “We didn’t have linens or extravagant place settings, just impressive flowers, so the room didn’t need anything else.”
Liz and Nels had their first dance to “I Found You” by Alabama Shakes. “It pretty much says, ‘If I’m going to love you, I’m going to love you all the way,” Liz says.
