• {Real Wedding} Catherine & Foster: Modernly Classic Yellow + Grey Wedding at Home

    The planning of this wedding was a family affair.  The bride lives in a remote town near Yosemite with very little internet access, so aside from a few requests (like the Talking Heads tribute band ‘Same as it Ever Was”) she let her mother plan the entire wedding at her parent’s home.  And if you ask me, her mother should start a wedding business, because she did a fabulous job herself & in hiring the perfect vendors to bring her vision to a reality.  This is one of my favorite weddings I’ve featured, so sit down with a coffee or iced tea and enjoy this swoon-worthy, pin-every-photo wedding, and be inspired!

    The bride’s other must-have for her wedding, a cheese wheel cake.  Says the bride:
      I don’t care much for cake, but I LOVE cheese!”

    This might be the most perfect flower girl dress I’ve ever laid eyes on!

    My dress was originally a mermaid gown that I purchased and had altered by Ballew Bridal in Collierville, TN. She cut it off right at the flare and pulled the lace from the bottom to created the lacy hemline. Mrs. Ballew was amazing, I never imagined that part of the wedding would so easy. I did not realize that no one makes short wedding dresses either!

    The bride and groom love games, and wanted something unique for their guestbook that they wouldn’t mind hauling around when the move.  I’d like to believe that I inspired the jenga guestbook with my jenga guestbook post from two years ago :)

    We used a ton of stuff my mom already had: vases, candle holders, chandeliers, etc. We did not rent anything except tables, chairs and table cloths.  We found the runners and napkin in our wedding colors.

    I love these cork centerpieces – just a large vase filled with corks!
    And how fun would it be to drink the wine to collect the corks?

    Here’s more from the bride on the DIY elements:  I handmade heart shaped birdseed favors because my husband and I love bird watching.  My mom and a friend made pillow cases in yellow and gray to cover some of the outdoor furniture pillows and coordinate with the theme.  I handmade the signs that went with the favors and guesbook using extra invitations I had left over.

    SO amazing, right?  Love the color palette (one of my favorites!), and mixed with patterned pillows and graphic elements on the stationery and signs it is absolute perfection.  The florals are fab, the styling is ridiculously gorg, and all of the personal details are just icing, on a cheese wheel cake! I’d like to give every person and vendor involved with the execution of this lovely wedding a standing ovation.  Join me by leaving a comment of your favorite part of this wedding!

      Love everything about this wedding! The birdseed favors are a favorite idea of mine too since I’m a big birdwatcher like the bride. Gorgeous couple! Congrats to you both!

      This is a beautiful wedding! I’m curious as to where she purchased her shoes from! They are awesome and exactly what I’m looking for! Any idea?

      They were perfect! And the flower girl dresses were actually made my a family relative. She did an amazing job on them!
