Wedding Bells

My friend's wedding was this past Sunday.  It was AMAZING!

The bride was gorgeous (dress was so beautiful), groom handsome and party
a TON of fun!

I LOVed how the decor came out.  The bride told me it came out better than she could of imagined.  Lucky for me she has great taste and wanted to decorate in a design I LOVe. 

I thought I did a "good" job too but I had some critiques for myself.  As they say we are our own worst judge but it's those judgements that will make me a better decorator.  I will save them to myself, though...

Hope you're impressed.  Please let me know what you think!  Good and bad!

First up is a handmade sign showing the wedding guests the way to the celebration.

The bride made handmade guest cards for the escort table.  They came out LOVely.  Hand stamped, hand written and all placed in their own wine cork that the bride and groom have been saving since their story started.  I LOVed that they were personal and had special meaning.

The bride is a wedding photographer by trade.  We thought it would be special to showcase vintage wedding photos of couples from the past.  They were casually placed throughout but featured here on an upcycled window.

Ball jars and candles were elegantly laid along the ledge of the fireplace.

Special seats for the bride and groom.

Head table arranged for conversation amongt members of the bride and groom's family.  Vintage finds spread aside floral arrangements and candles.  The bride's handmade name cards were placed on the head table for their family and laid in saved
champaign corks. 


Personal menus for each guest were another handmade item of the bride.

Table numbers were made of numbered pieces of wood, delicately spray painted in pink and sanded to give a shabby apprearance.

All tables were covered with a vintage inspired piece of lace.  Guest tables adorned with a vintage camera each special to the bride and eclectic candles all different in style.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me be a part of your special day!

Congrats to you both!
