a pretty peach wedding...

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.
Until then...

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. 


This framed sign at the Memory table, along with a collection of 
special photos. 


And, outside on a table with sparklers.


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
from behind.  


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!

How beautiful, Pam!!! The bride and groom are gorgeous and I'm so happy for your family. I am such a big fan of the black & white with colored flowers…..they are all over my Pinterest tablescape board….especially pretty with this peach & coral scheme. The baby's breath - how genius for a large floral arrangement - so smart! And the Ikea lanterns (that we all have) look absolutely amazing with the ribbon and baby's breath. I will have to remember that for special occasions! Thanks for sharing your great ideas and best wishes to the bride & groom!

Cathy Wall said...

How lovely! The black & white is a beautiful pop with the peach and your nephew knew the right person to help with the details, so fun!

Cindy @ a curious gardener said...

Congratulations to your nephew and bride! Lucky that his aunt was Pam! Every idea so perfect. Favorites are the flowers in the gift boxes and the shot of the tables, all set, waiting for guests. This whole post would be perfect in a bridal magazine.

My friend and I decorated an outdoor wedding last summer with tons of sunflowers and rudbeckia. It was so fun to then see the festivities taking place amidst all of it.

All the details are so perfect! I know there was a lot of work behind the details but it all looks so lovely and effortless in the way it is so lovely displayed. Excellent work! I know the couple was thrilled with the results. Pretty! Pretty!

Such a beautiful outdoor wedding that looks like it was decorated with the help of a professional wedding coordinator - everything is gorgeous Pam! Love the color scheme and all of the details that you had your hand in. What a lucky nephew and new bride!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

What a beautiful wedding filled with so much love. The table settings are so pretty and you can see all the details. Love how warm this feels. Best wishes to the happy couple. And I love how the lanterns look on your new countertop. Great work space.

Miss Kitty said...

Wow! You added such great details to the wedding! They DO take up a lot of time, don't they? Usually I don't like baby's breath but having it massed together and being the only flower makes it classy...love that idea!
