Wedding Projects

The chandeliers (previous post) helped set the theme for Kristin & Matt's wedding.
She decided to go with a shabby chic style that lends itself 
to a casual, vintage, handmade look.

The first thing I'm going to show you is actually the last thing I made.
We needed a little extra something-something for the registry table.
At the last minute, I whipped out this little sign and Mod-Podged it to a
shabbyied-up board.

We did the pew bows in a gauzy fabric. The glass bottles were also Mod-Podged with a label we created using their names and wedding date.  Just before the ceremony we popped in a sprig of fresh flowers.

Behind the cake you can see a bit of the lighted tulle wall.
It really softened up the area.

Kristin painted the "I DO" letters in front of the cake and embellished them with rhinestones.

 She attached her great grandmother's brooch to the ribbon on her bouquet.

Since there was a piano in the reception area that would have been murder to move, we pulled it from its crouching position in the corner and decorated it.

I printed the banner on scrapbook paper and strung it on ribbon.

 Instead of crystal flutes, the bride chose antique silver goblets for their official toast.

There is so much I love here. Lilies are my favorite flower. I especially love the orange lily. One year I had one side of my house completely bordered in lilies exactly like the ones in Kristin's bouquet. I also love the initials on top of the wedding cake! I like to see different ideas for decorating the cake top. The pew decorations are gorgeous too! It must have seemed like fairy land.

I think of all that, the pew bows are my favorite.
Either that or those fancy-schmancy floor lamps book-ending the piano. Nah... definitely the pew bows. ;)

Everything looks so gorgeous! You really outdid yourselves. The bride and groom look so happy and beautiful! My daughter arrived at her wedding which was outdoors in a vintage car, too. Love that idea! And her train hanging over! Wonderful!
