Real Wedding Fridays: Country Romance

Each Friday, I will feature a real wedding that has brought inspiration to me and perhaps will spark an idea for you as well.  I continue to be floored by the amount of creativity and personality behind these weddings and I feel the need to share with you all!  I hope you enjoy!

Today's real wedding features one with rustic charm and clean, modern style. 

Everything about this wedding screams casual romance!  I adore the invitations - A Summer Fairy Tale.  What guest wouldn't want to be part of this event?

I can't get over the bride's beautiful bouquet of blush pink peonies.  Simply gorgeous!

I've always been a fan of the vintage milk glass vases but could not come up with a classic way of displaying them at a wedding.  Now I know!  This elegant display would be the perfect backdrop for your guestbook table or escort and place cards.

Lastly, I'm in love with the wedding colors.  The soft pink is the perfect compliment to the bold apple green.

Birdcage Veils

Like the wedding gowns they are worn with, veils can be traditional, modern, vintage, and simple.  All unique in their own way, a veil adds that perfect special touch to a bride's wedding day look. 

I've always envisioned myself in a traditional cathedral or elbow length veil with all the "poof" and volume one could ever care for.  That was however until I purchased "The Dress" and my idea of the perfect veil completely changed.  After trying on many various styles with my gown, I fell in love with the vintage birdcage veils as they are completely and utterly classic and timeless.  Not only do they a simple sophistication about them; birdcage veils can easily be coordinated with wedding jewelry and fun hair accessories.

DIY Photo Booth

I love photos!  So, perhaps that is why I'm overly excited about our DIY wedding photo booth!  I stumbled upon this genious idea months ago and immediately knew we'd have to include at our reception.  Our photographer will be capturing these special moments created by our friends and family.  We'll provide props to encourage creative and goofy shots.  I think this is something everyone can have fun with and will make some awesome photos for John and I to keep for years to come!
