Outdoor Country-Chic Wedding at Oak View Nursery in Owatonna, Minnesota

rn High school sweethearts Trisha Ross (25 and a sales and development coordinator) and Nic Remund (24 and a farmer) held a modern, romantic celebration at Oak View Nursery in Minnesota. “We both love modern design and wanted to incorporate that into our wedding,” Trisha says. “To soften it up, we added touches of blush, chiffon and greenery.” Their color palette—copper, marble and blush—was chic but still rustic and warm. After an outdoor ceremony, the newlyweds hosted 250 guests in an indoor/outdoor reception on-site. “The venue had fire pits, an area for yard games, plenty of seating and indoor space.”
For dinner, guests sat at long wooden banquet tables topped with silver dollar and eucalyptus garlands, copper terrariums and pillar candles. “We wanted every detail to be a reflection on our love or our personal style,” Trisha says. “My favorite details were the ones that have such meaning in our hearts.” One meaningful detail was the wedding hashtag #EverybodyLovesRemund, a phrase Trisha used to write on signs to cheer Nic on at sports games in high school. For a fun favor, guests took home personalized can koozies. “Slow down and make sure to build in moments and details that are meaningful and special to you and your soon-to-be husband,” Trisha advises. —Carolyn Meers
