Stephanie + Chauncy | Blue Haven Barn | Sioux Falls, SD

When you wake up on a wedding day and it is a blue sky with not a single cloud in the sky you know it's going to be a beautiful day. Chauncy and Stephanie were married at the amazing new venue of Blue Haven Barn right near Sioux Falls, SD.

When I tell you Stephanie put a lot of work into this day I'm not kidding. All of the succulents that were used for decoration, Stephanie has been growing for the past year! And they also built the wooden boxes that they are placed in on each table. The dirt is a mix of dirt from each of their family homes, so there is amazing meaning all the way from the two of them down to the decor. As if that wasn't enough, Stephanie (with help from her mother-in-law and bridesmaids), made her own cheesecake cupcakes for her guests desserts as well as the cheesecake the couple cut into instead of a cake. DIY to the max with a bit of heart in each and every piece. I loved how amazing thought out every aspect of their day was. 

Sneak a peek below at this beautiful wedding, and the obvious love between Stephanie and Chauncy!
