Real Essense Bride: Kari + Billy

We are swooning over this amazing winter wonderland wedding of Kari and Billy in Roseau, Minnesota.

As Nashville musicians, every last detail truly represented the bride and groom. Billy donned his cowboy hat, and Kari looked stunning in a fur capelet. The snowy white landscape was the perfect backdrop for their rustic wedding. Sarah Kauss captured their day with a breathtaking outdoor country shoot (including a horse!) before their nuptials.

Kari looked absolutely gorgeous in a vintage-inspired Essense of Australia wedding dress. The soft organza and detachable illusion jacket with three quarter length sleeves accented with delicate beaded lace and crystal embellishments showcased Kari’s beauty. She accessorized her vintage look with winter white Victorian boots, gloves and a sparkling hairpiece.

Their big day included winter touches of pine cones and evergreen, twinkling lights strung on bare branches and mason jar centerpieces. The country duo even played a little for their guests, Kari on violin and Billy on guitar. And who can resist the ring bearer brought in on a winter sleigh?

Congratulations to Kari and Billy!
