Oh my words….GIDDY as I write this!
You know the wedding I told you about, that I did the flowers and decor for a couple of weeks ago? The one I told you I was so busy working on that I didn’t get to take a single picture of any of the arrangements or staging that I’d done? The one I’d have been sick to my stomach over not documenting myself had my good friend Kim Deloach not been the photographer? Yeah…that wedding?
I’m sure you get sick of me droning on and on about Kim’s talent….but seriously ya’ll….she’s talented. Like….UH-Mazing. And while I felt pretty good about all that I personally accomplished to help our friends Tonia and Rick to make their wedding day extra special….well, Kim made that all look even better.
Check out these few pictures…and then don’t stop here. I’m posting a link to Kim’s blog so you can all check out the full amazingness of this Rustic-Chic wedding at an old church and reception at a farmhouse that’s chocked with old town charm and fun! Seriously…I’m just giving you a taste here…head over to Kim’s blog to really feast your eyes on some serious visual candy! (And pay extra special attention to things like the flowers and staging….those were the things I did!)
Before I move on here….I have to tell you how much I LOVED making her bouquet! After I finished and stepped back to look at it, I honestly cried. It was really special to be able to make something for them that I knew she’d love…and she did. Her words to me before they left their reception at the end of the evening were “You saw my vision and made it even more amazing than I’d imagined.”
That my friends, is the best compliment I could have ever received! Ok ok….more eye candy!
Cool church huh? And that little fella just to the right of the bride and groom…the tallest of the little ones, he’s mine! He did such a great job carrying a sign that read “Here comes the bride” right before Tonia processed into the church. You can see them all below a bit more. That precious little girl in the top right is Tonia’s daughter McKenna. She is absolutely adorable!
Our friends who own the farmhouse just happened to have this truck and crate of old bottles lying around. (They actually have a real old timey town recreated on the property. Seriously…there’s a general store, a barber shop, an old post office, and more. And it’s all chocked full of authentic period stuff….it’s so much fun!)
There was a real deal pig pickin’ (as in, you can get it right off the pit, you can see it below) and bluegrass music too. It was nothing short of perfect.
Recognize that bench in the top right corner of this photo collage above? Yep, that’s the one I made. Remember it from awhile back? And, Tonia found those red and white striped paper straws that we put in all the drinks online…aren’t they awesome? I might just have to make sure to always have some of those around from now on…they add instant old fashioned cool factor!
And thanks to another friend who happens to be in the fireworks biz….Rick and Tonia ended the evening with a bang!
Ok…now, head over to Kim’s blog to really see the good stuff! You’ll get a lot more pictures of the awesome little town on the property too….it’s so so neat! You. Will. LOVE!
