Today, I want to share with you a wedding I helped decorate a few weeks ago. If you follow me, I talked about the planning and prep work I was doing.  It was a fun project and the bride was so easy going.  She pretty much gave me full control over the design, after discussing her likes and dislikes. I was a bit nervous and excited about this.  She provided a few staple pieces she wanted to incorporate in the design (mason jars, zinc lanterns, and treasure chest).  This budget friendly affair was key and I was focused and ready to not disappoint!  I'm happy it all turned out well and the wedding was a hit. The bride and groom are such a cute couple and they truly enjoyed every moment of their day (despite the fact they were not able to get married outside). 

Barn weddings are gaining popularity and if you're looking for ideas, this particular wedding was more a rustic design.

Zinc colored lanterns decorated with soft green ribbon, were used as part of the center pieces for the barn tables.  Here's a snapshot I took, getting them ready to be boxed and shipped to the venue for setup later.


Here's the sample look I created:

 For the flowers, simple but elegant florals decorated in mason jars.  Hydrangeas, ranunculus, alstromerias and green thalspi were incorporated in the floral design. 

  An easy, little project I tried my hand at:  gold foiled a couple of mason jars to add interest.

Bridal bouquet:

Beautiful bride with her father.  I love the way her bouquet turned out.

For the escort table, manzanita branches decorated with florals and wrapped with burlap and ribbon.

Escort cards lay in a bed of moss, displayed in a silver tray, tied with white satin ribbon along with key and heart trinkets.

Table decorated!

  1. It came across very tough to plan out whole wedding without assistance from wedding planner. My partner and I also hired best rental halls in Philadelphia, who really helped me to make my wedding time wonderful.
