My sweetie and I are very country, but I still want some elegance involved. I want a late summer, early fall wedding, and I have always imagined it being outdoors. I love the thought of a field of wildflowers, or a field amidst tall pines, or somewhere near the water. I dont want the same old tried and true - lief erickson, the rose garden, park point - I want something rusticly elegant. Our family is all local so no need for hotels, but the thought of an outdoor bonfire for a reception is something that fits my family well. Any thoughts on a place that would work for one or both?
how about enger park? the new gazebo is definitely in the rustic but elegant spirit, and you can use the old ccc shelter to make a fire. they've torn it up right now, but it should be beautiful again by late summer next year.
