The gentle stroll down the aisle, the heart felt smiles and tears of joy; there is just something about a wedding. I think it is the promise of love and the hope for a happy future. The promise to have each others back through thick and thin. We were lucky enough to add a new woman to our family last weekend!
Isn't She lovely?!
My husband has NINE brothers and (yep, ten boys) and this wedding happened to be for brother number nine. I got a call two days before the wedding from my mother-in-law. It was a plea for help. She and My sister-in-law were in need of some desperate decorating help. The wedding theme was somewhat vintage with a heavy emphasis on lace and burlap decor. They had been lucky enough to borrow most of the decorations and needed some help setting the stage for romance.
Look at this cake: beautiful right? I didn't make it, but I did make that lovely lace and burlap banner behind it (with the help of a great friend! Since I only had two days to pull all of the decor together, I called my friend Ashely- who is eternally creative- and explained to her all the things I needed to have done! My oh. my can that girl work miracles!)
The wedding was at a house near by at the home of another SIL (remember I have nine BIL'S). Her house is huge, but relatively empty as they haven't lived there long. We moved my entryway mirror on over to their house and set it up behind the cake table . . . see my beautiful fabric banner?? (see tutorial) It was the perfect touch.
I had nothing to do with this candy favor table but I still thought it was adorable!
Cute little cookie tray . . .
The wedding colors were red, black and white ( well she said the color was burgandy, but all the decore she chose was red, so I am saying it was red::)
Cafe Rio Catered . . . Yum!
We used my kids dresser for the sign in table . . . I spray painted an old dressed mirror to sit on top of the dresser
Lots of pictures were used as decor . . .
I made two wreaths and chalkboard welcome sign (see tutorial here) to garnish the entry. See Wreath tutorials here:
Wreath One: See Wreath tutorials here:
Wreath 2: See Wreath tutorials here:
Close up of Wreath 2:
Dresser and Mirror for guest book . . .(see tutorial) for spray painted mirror
Burlap and lace banner, monogrammed pillow (see tutorial), spray painted bird cage . . .
These pictures really don't do it all justice. It was dark and my camera can't really handle poor lighting, but you can get a little idea of what it look like and trust me when I say it was so beautiful!
