Today’s wedding is right up my alley. It’s a little bit vintage, a little bit country, and a whole lotta pretty! Not to mention this bride is wearing the Kate Spade shoes I have been coveting for ages. So much drool-worthy inspiration here, so get your cup of coffee, get comfortable, and get your pinning finger ready!
I saw a picture of Kevin Costner at his wedding with his bride and they had taken pictures in front of an old fashioned truck. I knew immediately I wanted to intertwine this truck idea into our wedding. At first, our save-the-dates had postage of a red old-fashioned truck that read “Getting’ Hitched!” And my uncle owns a car dealership and he just happened to have a 1950’s red truck! We drove this truck from the ceremony to the reception.
My bridesmaids and I DIY’d our s’mores favors – they took us about 3 hours to assemble the week of the wedding. The s’mores had a tag on them that said “Thanks S’more.” I also had wood signs engraved with “Jason Loves Liberty S’more” and “Liberty Loves Jason S’more.”
I found a picture of a backyard wedding that had old fashioned lights strung across the yard and really wanted them for our wedding, but found they were very expensive to rent. My dad promised me that we would have the lights because they were very important to me. The week of the wedding my dad, fiancé, and uncle spent a day putting the poles in the ground and hanging the lights from the roof. They made a huge difference in the wedding because the lights brought a sense of romance once the sun went down!
Jason and Liberty wanted to incorporate their love for vintage Americana (Jason is in the Army) and the outdoors. Using birchwood, moss, mazanita branches, daisies, rocks and other natural elements, Jason and Liberty created a wedding that was the perfect combination of their two favorite things.
My vision for our wedding was a rustic, country theme. My main goal for the wedding was for guests to really feel like the wedding came from the heart. I wanted guests to see décor and special parts of the wedding and think, “oh my gosh, that’s the cutest thing I have ever seen!” I didn’t have a specific color scheme, but the wedding was made up of champagnes, ivory’s, laces, and a lot of wood! More than anything I wanted everyone to feel the love that Jason and I share, and I tried to bring that out through the details of our wedding! Everything in our wedding was made possible by our amazing wedding planner, Katie Webb, from Intertwined.
Did I tell you? The pretty florals, the fab bridesmaids’ style, the sweet DIY and personal touches, and THOSE SHOES. I love every single thing. It was, as the bride hoped, the cutest thing! Plus I feel like I got a feel of who this couple is through their wedding, which I always think is the ultimate goal – it means you made your wedding YOU. And such a job well done to all of the vendors involved. So tell me, what’s your favorite part of this lovely country-chic wedding?
