I've always paid attention to details, so when it came to planning my wedding I spent countless hours mulling over the tiniest of details. I mean, come on, it was my wedding day.....I wanted it to be perfect!! So, here are a few of my favorite details in no particular order....
The food table became a focal point at our reception. We used lace linens from my grandparents and antiques my parents have collected over the years to make a show stopping display. I wanted to incorporate a menu somehow, so we found gorgeous vintage frames and put the name of the different dishes in each one. And we topped it all off with hanging lanterns to set the perfect glow!
I loved that our bar wrapped around a gorgeous oak tree in the center of the lawn where all the festivities were taking place. Do you notice the fabulous flower baskets mounted to the tree? The bar wouldn't be complete without our 2 specialty drinks, my favorite and of course the hubs favorite too. Oh and we had to have koozies with our wedding monogram!
I am obsessed with mercury glass so we collected vintage vases and votive candles to decorate the tables.
I love this old church pew so much that I had to incorporate it into the venue. It made the perfect seating area for guests to relax and give their dancing feet a break.
I saw this idea on a wedding blog and just had to put my spin on it. I took old photos and new photos and turned them into Polaroids to keep with my vintage theme.
We set up a guest book table on the walkway to the entrance of the home on our reception site. We used a cookbook as our guest book because we both love to cook, especially together. I loved the arbor our florist created over the entrance to the home.
Stayed tuned for part 2 tomorrow......
