A Friend's Beautiful Wedding!

We went to the most beautiful wedding yesterday and just had to share some of the details with you.  Remember the Wedding Shower Gift Post with the burlap I did several weeks ago?  Well this was the wedding.  The bride and groom are both Eco friendly, earthy people and their wedding reflected their love for nature.  The reception was held at a very rustic open air, beautiful, historic picnic pavilion that once belonged to the Hoover Company (of vacuum cleaner fame!) God blessed this couple with the perfect weather for their day.  And also blessed  both the bride and the bride's mother with an  incredible eye for detail.  They did a fabulous job with the reception, it looked like it was straight out of a magazine!  So I couldn't help but share these pictures with you,  I think you will enjoy it as much as I did!

Wedding Seating Chart

The only thing I can take any claim for - is the fact that I lent them the door we used at our daughter's wedding last year for the seating chart! 

The Head Table

The Bride and Groom's table was adorned with burlap pennants, mercury glass, and her beautiful natural bouquet.

Guest Seating had burlap table runners, battenburg lace chair covers, silver chargers, mercury glass votives, birch pots with herbs and a beautiful wildflower center piece.

This picture is not the greatest, but the bar had pennants hanging inviting you to "Wet your Whistle".

My favorite though, was the Dessert Table

This Dessert Table was as delicious as it was beautiful. 
I love the use of the old suitcase and crates.

Then add the lace tablecloth, the "Life is Sweet" Sign and the garland made from fabric strips the whole vignette was just gorgeous!

Fun was had by all!
We wish the best for the Newlyweds!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
