A Lovely Wedding

I was invited to do a preview of an outdoor wedding reception that was held in June.
Oh my, it was bee-you-ti-ful...
dreamy, dreamy stuff!

They had a yogurt bar (homemade yougurt made by the bride's mother!) for the appetizer and an outdoor lounge area to enjoy it.
The couch was a free sidewalk pickup without its feet but that wasn't hard to fix -
 wooden blocks did the job!
The pillows were made by the bride's sister.
Love the lace and chandelier!
The railing was taken down between two posts, framed with some old, lovely wood art and doors hung for the entrance into the reception under a tent.
Blue jars were hung at each fence post.
The bride used embroidery hoops to hang laces above their section of a long bridal table.
So love, love this idea!
Most of the flowers came from friends and the roadside - simple and gorgeous!
I love simple, creamy whites weddings!

How clever and totally frugal. We think what these young gals are spending on weddings now - this is so much more special.

Of course in Ohio one cannot EVER consider planning an outdoor wedding- our weather is too iffy. It's either too hot, too cold or too inclement.

This is truly a simple and dreamy country wedding reception, lovely! Thanks for sharing!

How lovely, the embroidery hoops with lace such a great idea. I like the flowers you have and that they were wildflowers. We did the same thing for my nieces wedding, Several of us picked flowers from my yard and fields to decorate with. So beautiful are your pictures and thanks for sharing. If you get a moment , drop by my blog as I have posted pics of a country wedding also.
