Farm Wedding Decorations

I wanted to share a few more pictures of
Kadyn and Matt's Vintage Farm Wedding Decorations.

The back drop for the wedding ceremony was a grouping of vintage doors and shutters adorned with honey suckle garland and an assortment of sunflowers and foliage. All the flowers on the back drop were silk stems that were purchased at a garage sale in new condition! Shepherd Hooks with fresh daisies and babies breath lined the aisle.

Columns were stacked on wooden pallets, disguised by quilts and stabilized by hay bales to form the entry way to the outdoor, cow pasture ceremony. A ladder with a shabby chic curtain finished the look. 

We had some concerns at one point in the wedding planning if the burlap table clothes would arrive in time for the wedding, (they were stuck in customs), so we ordered a 100 yards of burlap in case we had to use it instead. The table clothes came in time and we had lots of burlap on hand for the wedding, therefore a burlap wedding aisle was a given. 

The parents and grandparents sat on bales of hay covered in antique quilts, while all the guest sat around the spools. Extra quilts were placed in a basket for any one to grab if they didn't want to sit directly on the hay.

In memory of the bride's grandparents, pictures from their wedding day and sentimental items were nestled among the quilts on an empty row of hay bales.

The antique Singer sewing machine was the bride's great-grandmother's on her Mom's side of the family, while the pitcher holding a bouquet of sunflowers and daisies was her other great-grandmothers on her Dad's side. The sewing machine served as the registry table, with guest signing cards and leaving them in the old mail box.

 I had some extra flowers left over and couldn't let them go to waste. Hay bales were grouped around the food serving lines and I draped lace, signs, and random buckets around the area. I quickly gathered bunches of daisies and tied them with a piece of twine.

The same went with the keg below - I simply arranged all the extra flowers  in the container beside the water cooler.

As we cleaned up, I found the bridesmaids bouquets and boutonnieres scattered about on the tables.

 A few more pictures of the center pieces...
 As I mentioned in earlier post, the wind was blowing like crazy. The fruit jars would not stand up in their own and had to be secured to the tables. You might notice the rusty nails that braced the jars and kept them from blowing over.

Sources: Doors and shutters for backdrop, columns and curtain for entry way came from
Burlap table clothes were ordered from All the Makings.
Wooden spools were gathered from the local electric companies.
All other items were either family heirlooms or purchased at flea markets, Goodwill, Salvation Army, random junk dug out of our houses and shops or rescued at garage sales and occasionally a trash pile.
