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!

There is so much to love about Shelby & John’s lovely wedding (not to mention the bride’s fabulous name from one of my favorite movies). The couple opted for rustic decor, which included the bride’s green and white bouquet and wreaths adorning the doors of the church. Various lanterns at the reception set a romantic tone, and be sure not to miss that amazing cake! It’s not often that you see chocolate wedding cakes and this one might just be my new favorite.

Hello, friends! I hope you all had a great holiday break and are hopefully easing back into your normal routine a little better than I am (when the alarm went off this morning I think I could have genuinely shed a tear). But this gorgeous wedding from the talented Jason G is certainly making my morning easier. Katie and Scott were married this past August in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony. I really love it when couple’s choose decor that blends in with their natural environment, and Katie and Scott did just that.

Prior to their traditional ceremony, the couple opted to have a private Native American ceremony. You can see the images below. After their two ceremonies were completed they moved onto a gorgeous reception, complete with carved birch vases for the centerpieces. You can see even more images from the day on Jason’s blog.
