Lake Tahoe Elopement | MN Farm Reception

You may remember Mindy and Brandon’s elopement shared this winter (click here to view) …well, this is Part II.

When your parents have a horse farm with plenty of room for parking and dancing, what more do you need!! The riding arena was converted into a reception hall by adding some nice white wash to the walls, hauling in some saw dust, a big vinyl remnant surrounded by lights and straw bales, two barrels with an old door lying across the top with some bloody mary mix and old fashioned lemonade, an old ladder refinished to hang memories, and of course a candy table for me…I mean for the kids;) Brandon put his construction hands to work and created the cupcake and cookie stands, and the beautiful artificial bouquet that traveled to Lake Tahoe with us, made for the perfect backdrop to their heirloom album that allowed guests to feel as though they were along for the ride. The decor was finished off with potted ferns.
