There are so many aspects of your wedding that you plan but never know how they will all come together. These details are what set each wedding apart from each other (or in the land of Pinterest, how each wedding is very similar to each other).
Since our venue was located in the North GA Mountains, we knew early on that our wedding would be of the rustic variety. Most of the details that we had at our reception were rustic things that I had seen on Pinterest. So sit back and see all of our details that we had in our wedding.
The cake was something that Jeremy cared the most about. I only really cared about how it looked – he cared out how it tasted. It didn’t quite taste the way we thought it would, but it was delicious. Oh, and one of our layers is a “dummy layer”. Can you tell which one? The flowers used were fake as well. I personally love the simplicity of our cake. The flavor was supposed to be like strawberry shortcake, but it ended up being some type of lemon strawberry thing. Either way, it tasted great!
I bought these boxes from Hobby Lobby. They were the first decor item that I purchased and I’m glad that we were able to use them. My mom used her Cricut skills and created the letters for them.
I was going to dedicate an entire post to Joanna and her free hand skills, but she didn’t really like that idea, so here is her handiwork on full display. The picture above, and the 2 pictures below were all her creations. She created the front and back of the sign heading out to the ceremony. She also created the small sign for the guestbook. All I had to do was send her ideas I liked on Pinterest and she went to town. I love how all of these signs turned out.
She mentioned that she had to free hand this sign a few times to get it to fit properly. I just love how it turned out.
These 2 signs were last minute additions, but I’m so glad that we had these. They were put on our chairs at dinner. They were both rustic, but not overdone.
Each guest table had the choice between the lemon mason jars or the wildflowers. We got so many compliments on the lemon jars that I sort of wish we had used only those for our centerpieces, but I also love the wildflowers. Both of these ideas came from Pinterest – shocking, I know – and I am so happy that our florist made them happen.
The left bouquet is a bridesmaid bouquet that we used to help decorate the head table. I didn’t get any extra flowers for the head table (because we ran out of money), but I am so glad that we got to use the bridesmaids bouquets and put them on display. The center picture is my original bridal bouquet. I was gifted the peony bouquet, so I didn’t even use this one at all. I kind of wish I had a few pictures with it because it’s really beautiful.
I mentioned a few times how the lanterns seen below were a labor of love. And boy – were they ever. We traveled to many TJ Maxx’s to make sure that we had enough of these dang things, but I truly love how the table came together. The farmhouse chairs were another last minute addition, but I am so glad we had those at the head table. I think they really pulled in the vision we were going for.
Both of these pictures above were taken before the bridesmaids bouquets were added – before the ceremony. The pictures look a little drab without the bouquets to add some color…that’s why the candles aren’t lit yet.
