From the bride.. I aimed to have an untraditional rustic fall wedding without the traditional red, orange, yellow palette. We wanted our day to feel like you picked up a little piece of New Orleans and dropped it in the middle of Colorado. Our ceremony was very sweet. We had friends and family officiate a theme of individualism through love, support and partnership. We had a reading from Jitterbug Perfume by Tim Robbins, a poem by Sean’s sister, and a reading by one of my best friends. During the ceremony, a black cat walked up to us and rubbed against Sean, a hawk flying above screeched, and a goat baaahed behind us. It was amazing. I loved doing DIY projects and I think they helped to keep me as sane as possible. I up-cycled all the vases using Sean’s soup cans (he loves soup – so can supply wasn’t a problem). I painted them and wrapped them with yarn! With the help of friends we hand-painted chalkboard signs, and made the table runners out of inexpensive rustic muslin. I recreated a wedding ring pillow out of a wooden box and lace. I made my own hair piece out of tulle and lace left over from my wedding dress. I did a lot more, but some DIY projects didn’t make the cut.
My f lowers included cotton pods and magnolia leaves straight from the south.
