Homemade and Rustic We tried to make our wedding extremely personal. For our guest book, we had a good friend make a log table and our guests signed it, it will be a beautiful addition to our house. I also took an old fashioned mirror frame and filled it with all of our baby pictures. Our guests got a good laugh at all of our embarrassing pictures. My mom and I dug up some old barn wood for the centerpieces and Kyle’s dad made these amazingly simple, but rustic, boxes for the floral arrangements. Kyle and I also made a bar sign to go above the bar made out of the old barn wood. One of the most time consuming projects we did were the favors; we made personalized CD’s with some of our favorite songs. We had a small cake just to cut. Our main attraction was our huge dessert bar. We had over 15 different kinds of pies, cookies, and brownies! Although rain on your wedding day is good luck, it did complicate things a little. The wedding was delayed a few minutes and we had to move our programs, table decorations, etc. I feel like due to the rain a lot of people did not get to sign our guest table or get a program.

The reception was by far my favorite part of the day. With all our family and friends, together, we laughed and cried and loved every minute of it.
