Christina and Scott planned the most adorable outdoor wedding last September, full of easily managed DIY projects.  There were chalkboard frames with messages for the guests throughout the reception, mason jar candle holders, and the cutest photobooth “wall.” I love the idea of including family photos to make it look like a gallery wall!  And I especially love the wishing rock idea, as we used something similar at our wedding.  Christina and Scott took it a step further though and had guests actually write messages on the rocks, giving their advice for a “rock solid” marriage.  So cute!

Terrain Styled Real Wedding

November 16, 2010


Anna and Chris had such a beautiful wedding, that incorporated both tuxedos and personal DIY style all in one event. Anna is a textile designer, so the couple utilized gorgeous quilts and fabrics throughout the event. The table assignments were listed on a giant framed chalkboard and a bluegrass band entertained guests during the cocktail hour. The couple utilized simple metal lanterns as centerpieces (genius) and had a local baker create pies made from family recipes. They helped develop the aesthetic and decor for the event from a designer at Terrain, which is surely why I love every bit of this wedding!

Venue: Audobon Center in Audobon, PA
Photographer: Lorraine Daley Wedding Photography
Flowers/Decorations: Matthew Muscarella, from Terrain
Brides Dress: Cymbeline Paris
Brides Shoes: BP Platinum

Catering: Jeffrey Miller Catering

You all are going to love Travis and Christina’s beautiful California wedding – I think it might be one of my favorites this year! Not only is the wedding gorgeous, but it was sent over from a pair of my favorite photographers, The Youngrens. The couple decided to offset the beautiful rustic setting with gorgeous teal bridesmaids dresses, and honored their venue at The Temecula Creek Inn with wine related favors. The bride’s father handmade individual wooden wine bottle stands for each guest – maybe the best favor I’ve seen in a long time! All of the stationery was handmade, and each table number featured gorgeous calligraphy and flourishes. And I am sure it won’t come as a shock but I love the green and white florals, created by the talented Magnolia Flower Shoppe. A huge “thank you” to The Youngrens for sharing their beautiful work! You can see more images from Travis & Christina’s wedding on their blog, here and here.
