Don't they look happy?
My daughter and her fiance tied the knot in a simple
but beautiful rustic wedding on September 1st.
Simple doesn't mean we didn't spend countless hours
planning, sifting through Pinterest, and searching for those
special pieces that would set the tone just the
way she wanted it though!
Centerpieces for the reception tables were a mix and
match of both new and vintage jars, bottles and cans,
dressed up with bits of burlap, lace and dried flowers.
Flameless votives and cedar buttons added
touches of light and woodsy scent.
Guest tables were dressed in burlap table covers
topped with vintage tablecloths. Serving
tables were covered in old quilts.
No ushers - so a sweet way to invite everyone
to seat themselves.
No gift table - just an antique gift-barrow!
A pretty way to remind guests to save the front rows for family.
All the gals in the family helped out - my multi-talented daughter-in-law arranged all the flowers - love this one in its vintage aluminum pitcher!
The beautiful barn venue had this big blank wall
(right where the minister, bride and groom would stand).
The perfect canvas for a large cross
made of old barn wood to hang!
Aisle seats dressed up with burlap pew cones filled
with mums and wildflowers.
Darling toasting flutes! Wooden hearts have Mr. & Mrs.
woodburned on them, and then were attached to a band
of burlap and then the stems wrapped in jute.
And what a wonderful dessert table! Cake made by the
groom's aunt, decorated with sunflowers from my
garden. And pies galore! Cherry, apple, peach and
cheesecake - all homemade by the bride herself.
Her brother and Dad cut those maple
slices to showcase it all on.
It was a wonderful day -
and afterward I wanted to sleep for a week!
