A Vintage-Inspired Barn Wedding on a Family Farm in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa

This wasn't Jennifer Miller and Jeremy Clark's first wedding at the Miller family farm. Two years prior, the couple met while feting Jennifer's sister

This wasn't Jennifer Miller and Jeremy Clark's first wedding at the Miller family farm. Two years prior, the couple met while feting Jennifer's sister's wedding: She was maid of honor, he was an usher. Two years later nearly to the day, Jennifer (27 and a nurse) and Jeremy (27 and a financial advisor) tied the knot themselves at a pond on the family's 18-acre property.

Jennifer chose a palette of blush pink, gray and metallics to highlight a vintage theme that included salvaged barn-wood signs, table centerpieces of mirrors, jewels, and antique handkerchiefs, and a vintage globe "guest book."  Peonies in mason jar vases lined the aisle for the mostly traditional ceremony, which took place before 100 guests. 

The special location allowed the couple to do something everlasting: "We chose to plant a tree for our union during the ceremony," says Jennifer. Once the couple was pronounced married, guests showered the newlyweds with dried rose petals wrapped in cones of old sheet music. A reception for more than 300 guests followed in a white tent next to the barn. —Michelle Thomas

Jeremy chose Jennifer's dainty halo engagement ring at Siebke Hoyt in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  The couple returned to the store for a matching wedding ring and white gold band for the groom.
Jennifer paired her lace gown with lace wedge heels from Sole Society and a beaded sash from Etsy.
Jennifer's aunt made this bouquet wrap using the bride's grandmother's wedding gown, using its delicate buttons to line the stems.
The bride wore a strapless lace fit-and-flare gown and accessorized with a beaded sash and her mother's pearls.
At the end of the ceremony, guests showered the newlyweds with dried rose petals wrapped in sheets of piano music.
Jennifer and Jeremy planted a tree together during the ceremony to symbolize the beginning of their new family. Each of their mothers contributed a jar of dirt from her childhood home.

The bridesmaids wore royal blue chiffon gowns, while the groomsmen wore gray suits.
After the ceremony, the couple took photos among the huge old oak trees on the property.
Jennifer and Jeremy married almost exactly two years from their first meeting, which they noted on a chalkboard sign displayed at their reception.
Photos of the couple's parents and grandparents on their own wedding day decorated a ladder at the reception.
Jennifer loves peonies, so she and her mother harvested bulbs in early spring and had the florist bring them to bloom just in time for the wedding.
Jennifer's friend calligraphed the menu on an old six-pane barn window.
Jennifer painted and distressed this desk—found at Goodwill for $10—to display photos, a card box and a vintage globe that guests signed in lieu of a traditional guestbook.
The table centerpieces included peonies in blue mason jars and collections of vintage jewels, mirrors and other antique finds.
Iced drinks helped guests stay cool on the warm summer day.
The single-tier, strawberry- champagne-flavored wedding cake was simply decorated with fresh-cut flowers and a "We Do" topper. Homemade sugar cookies were also on offer at the reception.
A photo booth with playful props was set up at the reception.
The 300-guest reception was hosted in a large white tent next to the farm's barn.
