Farmhouse Wedding

Rustic "Farmhouse" style weddings is a trend that doesn't seem to be fading. My good friend Leslie was asked to help with the wedding reception of a dear friend of hers and I got called to pitch in too. Leslie had a vision - it started with pallets. Lots and lots of pallets...

We stacked the pallets to make an entrance in an old car body shop turned reception venue. 

This stack of pallets and galvanized bucket will feature the wedding cake.

Of course we added in chalkboard signs and mason jar votives. Plus lots of fragrant roses and hydrangeas.

Rustic ladders added some height and showcased photos, flowers and votives.

We (and by "we" I mean our husbands) hung large gilt frames and bouquets of baby's breath from the ceiling. 

We created a greeting area for the bride and groom under a long garland with a rustic bench for them to rest on.

The dinner was a simple buffet of main dish salads, rustic breads and homemade jams, fresh fruit and a pie buffet with 7 different kinds of pie! 

Long eucalyptus garlands adorned the farmhouse style tables which we arranged in chevrons.  

I adore this old feeding trough used to hold gifts! 

The guests were sent home with praline candies.

It was a fun celebration to put together!

I like to join
