Rustic Lodge Wedding Inspiration

I really love today’s inspiration shoot, shared by the lovely and super talented Emily Steffen and Bethany Hway and shot on location at Elbow Lake Lodge in Cook, Minnesota. With a beautiful lake view and a stunning lodge as their muse, this shoot is all about rustic lakeside charm. Recreating this look for your wedding is pretty simple. Think natural materials like burlap, forest-inspired details like pine cones and keep the menu and vibe casual for the most authentic summer camp experience you can muster. Bonus points if you have s’mores, a pair of canoes and a hammock strung between trees for a late afternoon nap.

Love all of the rustic details. I didn’t realize there are mountains in Minnesota. Where is this lovely lake?


In all fairness, I think there are 0 mountains in Minnesota but I’ve never been but I can’t say for sure. ;-) But that’s totally what this shoot reminds me of!
