Kara & Will's Iowa wedding took place at the Harvest Farm Campground, and what's awesome about this wedding- aside from its fabulous warm colors- is that it was planned in only 3 months!
The bride and groom were able to borrow 80 bales of hay from a neighbor and friend, Will got his Levi's suit from a thrift store for only $1.00, and both attendants spent less than $3.00 on their pre-used gowns. Incredible, no?
In Kara's Words:
"I’ve been a lifelong thrift store aficionado, have a love of all things vintage and am committed to re-using and recycling as much as possible, so we started combing thrift stores and rummage sales for all kinds of dishware, flatware, vases, linens, picture frames, Christmas lights and things that could be used to decorate. We lucked out one afternoon driving by an antiques store that had gone out of business and left unwanted items by the side of the road. For favors, we gave out dish towels which my grandmother and my mother embroidered with our names and the date of our wedding. We also used them as napkins for the dinner."
