I'm going to start of with W+C's wedding from a couple weeks ago. What I love most about this wedding is the fact that almost every.single.element was DIY'ed by either W or her Martha-Stewert-esque mom. You would never of guessed that they put everything together, that's how fantastic it looked!
The ceremony and reception took place at the bride's parents house in Hebron, KY. It's off this unassuming road and just when you start thinking you've gone the wrong way you pull up on their lovely home. It's the perfect spot for a wedding. Good thing, too since both W and her sister have gotten married there :)
The 'alter' where W+C were married - all created by the mother and father of the groom.
A glimpse of the tent and one of the trees holding tons of hanging lanterns. To say there were a couple candles at this event would be a major understatement :)
Looking back down towards the ceremony site
The escort cards. I've seen a lot of cork escort cards and I love this twist on it. Dad made the frame and they used the corks to hold the cards up.
Cork table numbers, again - another unique twist on the traditional cork
The bride's family did every piece of the reception decor. The linens, menus, table numbers and centerpieces.
I love that they used branches from around their yard. W's only request was that they didn't look 'wintery' - I think they did a great job of keeping branches classic and elegant. Nicely done :)
and some behind the scene shots:
reeeaaaccchhhhhhhh - thank goodness Rick is tall!!
The fabulous Annie Varland getting the perfect shot of W's bouquet. Stay tuned for some of her ridiculous shots. Seriously, they are amazing. I'm pretty psyched to show you them!
