This Rustic Wedding Was Basically a Mini Music Festival With Not 1 but 6 Bands
Natahna and Sam's beautiful rustic wedding was a labor of love and truly unique to them. Almost all of the details were DIYed, including the stage they exchanged vows on. The bride wore a vintage-inspired gown while her 13 bridesmaids, whom she calls her "tribe," each got to choose their own dress. The result was a bridal party of various styles and colors, adorned with metallic flash tattoos on top of it all. Natahna even created her own flower crown to wear the entire day, adding the cherry to their festival-inspired nuptials.
The ceremony took place on a private farm in Saskatchewan, Canada. Colored laces and fabrics lined the bushes around the site, and cold guests were provided with blankets to stay warm. The 150 guests sat on hay bales as they witnessed Sam and Natahna's union and moved to floor pillows around wooden pallet tables that the couple built themselves. Three bonfires roared during the reception while not one but six bands performed throughout the evening.
"The whole vibe was less like a traditional flower toss reception and much of a mini music festival," said Clint Bargen, their photographer and Natahna's brother. "As we bundled together under knitted blankets with good beer and some homemade desserts in hand, the one song that finished the night off perfectly was 'Lean on Me.'"
