We love anything rustic chic here at SMP, so it’s no surprise that I’m head-over-heels with excitement for this Frankfort fête by Danielle Aquiline Photography. This wedding is simiply dripping with charm from the bride and her maids donning cowboy boots, the craft beer centerpieces and Mason jar toasting flutes…it just may have it all! I know I’ll be swooning for days…see the rest for yourself right here!
From the Bride… The way I like to describe my wedding theme is country chic. Our wedding invitations said “Cowboy boots optional,” so we knew there would be a good amount of people wearing boots. Both Eric and I changed into cowboy boots for the reception, along with all the bridesmaids and both moms. We did a big roast, so there was a large pig roasting when everyone got to the site for the ceremony. We just wanted everyone to feel relaxed and comfortable at this wedding. Nothing too fancy but still not too casual. There was a big beer theme to the whole night — centerpieces for the tables included beer bottles from many microbreweries. We had over a dozen specialty beers for everyone in addition to the traditional typical beers served at weddings because we love beer wanted to incorporate that into our day.
