Kadyn and Matt's Burlap and Lace Vintage Farm Wedding

 I had the pleasure of coordinating, decorating, and photographing 
Kadyn and Matt's Vintage Farm Wedding
 this past weekend. 
It was a fun, western / vintage wedding and Kadyn carried a burlap and lace bridal bouquet.

I have known Kadyn for many years and was honored to work with her family to create her dream wedding.

 She wanted a very country, western, in the cow pasture wedding and we did our best to bring her ideas to life. I surprised them with a Junk Gypsy Inspired Photo Booth (in back ground). Read about the photo booth and see it Here.

The bridesmaids wore boots with dresses and denim jackets and carried bouquets of sunflowers and white daisies. The hand tied bouquets were wrapped with burlap and then accented with lace ribbon.

 The ceremony and reception was held in a cow pasture on a very windy afternoon. The parents and grandparents sat on rows of hay bales covered with vintage quilts, while guest were casually seated around wooden spools.

As I mentioned earlier, it was very windy on the day of the wedding. Nothing would stand upright, without being secured. With 30 Mason Jar centerpieces, we had to come up with a plan to keep flowers on the burlap covered tables. Someone came up with the idea to place nails around the fruit jars. So three hours before the wedding, we secured the wildflowers to the table! The table clothes had to be stapled down as well.

 This was one of my favorite pictures from the entire wedding! The two ring bearers were absolutely adorable. One led the couple's dog, Sadie, while the other carried a "Here Comes the Bride" sign.

Kadyn's only request for flowers was: white daisies, sunflowers, and "those flowers that grow on the side of the road", with a yellow and white color scheme. The centerpieces consisted of white daisies, sundaisies, yellow buttons, solidago, babies breath, and verigated pitt.

I had originally ask Kadyn to help me model a few bouquets for my store, then a few weeks later she ask me to design her wedding. She chose to carry a burlap and lace wedding bouquet with tan, chocolate, and cream colored burlap and ivory lace. I ask her mother to keep the lace when the dress alterations were complete and was able to add some of that lace to her bouquet. As a surprise to Kadyn, three pair of her grandmother's earrings were included in the bouquet.

Some of the rusty planters from my yard were used as centerpieces on the tables. This is one of my rustic chicken feeders, surrounded by lace.

Kadyn's mother is one of my best friends. She worked very hard to gather up lots of the supplies, vintage doors, decorations, quilts, and lace for the wedding. I enjoyed working with her to create her daughters wedding.  I want to say thank you to Kadyn for being such a wonderful bride to work with and send my Best Wishes to Kadyn and Matt for a very happy and healthy marriage together. 

(I took over 600 pictures at the wedding, so I'll have many more pictures and details to share very soon! )
