April 2, 2011 - Ali and Bobby's Wedding

From the moment I met Ali Verway I couldn't wait for her wedding!  Vases arrived at my office from their home... birdcages found their way into my hands... they lovingly made table runners for their guest tables and I shopped and shopped and shopped for old bottles and vases!  Love it!  I was so excited for them that their dream had come true to celebrate with their families and closest friends in an old barn surrounded by their favorite vintage things.

She carried pink peonies, white lilacs, blue delphinium, pink lisianthus, yellow billy buttons, cream wax and dark pink spray roses.  All bouquets were finished with ivory lace.

The bridesmaids wore a gorgeous shade of antique plum and carried wild flower bouquets.

The flower girls carried pomander balls with ivory wax flowers.

Mothers Corsages

Love the paper they used on their programs at the church.

An open-top bird cage was used to hold cards while a fruit stand served to hold programs.

Down the isle we hung mason jars filled with wild flowers that were later placed on long banquet tables for guests.

The alter was decorated with pillar candles and soft romantic wild flowers.  The family lovingly brought in additional trees and foliage with burlap fabric to fill in the back of the church.

Out at historic Harlan Ranch, guests were greeted with an old dresser topped with jars and bottles filled with flowers.  "Love is..." was the theme of this table outside the barn.

On four of the round guest tables we used our rustic candelabra and topped it with hydrengeas, wax flowers and pink spray roses - wheat was used throughout as well.

We loved working with the family's gorgeous amber hurricane's - we surrounded them with birch wreaths and wild flowers.

On the remaining round tables we decorated ivory birdcages with packets of flowers and candles.

Mason jars and bottles were filled with a variety of flowers on the long banquet tables.

"To God be the Glory" on an old barn plank along with ivory windows and doors hung behind the head tables.

Sheri and her assistant from "Star Events" did a great job hanging these windows and doors on the ban and atop an old wagon for the "Love is Sweet" table.  The cake was surrounded by yummie desserts for all to enjoy.

The barn looked rustic yet elegant - the perfect balance for this newly married couple. 

I snapped this photo of my son, Rocco -- peeking inside the barn --  the next morning as we came to clean up - too bad all good things must come to an end.  But for Ali and Bobby, the fun is just beginning!
