Courtney and L.D.'s Burlap and Lace Wedding

I had the pleasure of working with Courtney earlier in the year to create burlap and lace wedding bouquets for her western wedding. This week she sent me a few pictures from her and L.D.'s special day.

Coutney carried a bridal bouquet with turquoise, tan, chocolate brown, and cream burlap with white lace. The bridesmaid carried a medium size, coordinating bouquet while the groomsmen wore turquoise rose boutonnieres. Seriously, how cute is the little cowboy ringbearer?

I love this photo with her bouquet and boots on the piano!

Welcome to the Farm Wedding

Welcome to the Farm Wedding!
How we turned a plain gate into a fancy farm wedding entrance.
Guest drove down the winding black top roads to the farm where Kadyn and Matt were to be married.

From the road, you couldn't see the wedding decorations, so we wanted guest to know they had arrived and be wowed when they pulled off the black top into the cow pasture.

We draped and wound burlap and honey suckle vine around the entrance. Two large lariat rope wreaths with sunflowers, burlap, and lace flanked each side of the gate.
A few hay bales were propped up and we used wagon wheels, stars, horse collars, bits, and milk cans to add character to the scene.

My rusty bucket  and crock of  yellow petunias sat on each side of the entrance.

This pallet sign was a gift to the bride and we propped it against the fence post. It read:
Today I married my best friend. The one I laugh with, live for, dream with, LOVE.
The mother of the bride had found the tin WELCOME letters on a trash pile and rescued them from the landfill.
As I left the farm wedding for the last time, the sun was setting beautifully over the pasture and I couldn't help but stop and take one last picture of the day.

What I Love about Spring

It has been a long time since I joined the Brenda Photo Challenge, but I decided to participate this week with What I Love about Spring! All pictures were taken this week. Spring is my favorite time of year, although the last few mornings we are have had winter like weather and upper 30's at night.

An International square hay baler and Indian Paintbrushes on our property.
Wildflowers along the highway.
Lizards and plants in my yard and spending time sitting in my gazebo and enjoying working in my flower beds.
These are just a few of my favorite spring things!
