Hey everyone, I'm sorry for the sporadic posting lately, life has been extra busy.
If you remember I helped with the decor for my nephew's wedding this past Sunday,
and I have a few wedding photos for you, although not as many as I was hoping for. :(
When I wasn't busy decorating and taking care of inevitable little details, I was eating,
drinking, dancing, crying at the toasts, waving sparklers and enjoying the special day
with our families...getting caught up in all the fun and not focusing on taking blog photos.
I'm so sorry, but I promise to share some of the pretty professional photos with you.
It was beautiful setting with an open pasture just beyond this gazebo
where the ceremony took place.
The bride chose varying colors of peach and coral, with black and white.
I did lots of simple diy decor to help them keep it budget friendly. I used black
Ikea lanterns I had at the end of the rows. The baby's breath was ordered in bulk from
Costco. (They offer several varieties of flowers). Down the center aisle we did bundles
tied onto the chairs with long peach ribbons. Here is a close up of the lanterns when I
was putting them together.
If you're a long time reader you may recognize those columns and urns from my dining
room a few years ago. More recently they were outside in our garden.
The waterworks are about to begin...again. :)
The reception....we had a florist do the large spheres of baby's breath on the
oversized gold and silver candlesticks and I did the black and white stripe runners
with Ikea fabric. We borrowed several of the glass hurricanes from a friend of mine.
The bride liked the watercolor table numbers, a super easy diy. I used watercolor
paper and watered down acrylic craft paint.
We kept the theme and used the watercolors for a few other signs as well.
A large canvas on an easel directed guests when they arrived.

I found these cute patterned boxes a year ago on a clearance rack at Michael's
and thought they'd be perfect for favors, but we didn't decide what to put in them
until about a week before the wedding. It ended up being a pretty addition to the
table setting and so cost effective, around .65 for each favor. I bought the flowers
in four packs from Home Depot and planted them in the boxes the day before. We
also painted the white plastic handles gold to make them look more high end.
The photographer was taking a fun shot of the wedding party and I was watching
They were blessed with a gorgeous day, and an intimate group of family
and friends who love them and the opportunity to share in such a special day!
Congratulations Dustin & Megan!
