From flower arrangements accented with turkey feathers to mason jars with burlap details to the rustic dĂŠcor of the hunting lodge, their celebration was a Southern soirĂŠe unlike any other! Artfully Wed Spring 2014 | 27 Noteworthy Details Well Wishes from Guests Altar The couple repurposed a shabby chic picture frame so guests could leave behind notes and well wishes. The rustic construction of the altar matches the venue perfectly. The addition of the Mr. and Mrs. signs, in the couple's signature font, rounds out the look. Football rivalry Tristin and Lance are both Alabama natives who love each other even though their families worship opposing football teams. They wanted both teams represented equally on their wedding day! Personalized Signs Handmade signs were prevalent on their wedding day, including one featuring the couple's last name and wedding year. Monogrammed Cake Instead of a traditional cake topper, the couple chose a lace-covered monogram accented by burlap rosettes, rhinestones and pearls.
