Country Wedding

CC Wedding-Sign 2

Some very good friends of ours were getting married, and they asked me to help with the décor and theme, and act as the planner for the day. The venue was at a horse stable, with the wedding taking place in a pasture, and the reception in the arena. It was a beautiful site!

The theme was a sort of country chic. The bridesmaids wore dresses and cowboy boots, while the guys wore jeans, boots and vests. Very dashing! We used hydrangeas to do the bouquets. The tables were set with iron candleholders, hydrangeas and burlap runners.

For the head table, I had this sign made in vinyl and matted it in burlap. The table numbers were little chalkboard signs. Just adorable!

For the place cards, we used mason jars to act as glasses, and using my Cricut, I cut out chalkboard tags to write the table numbers on, securing them with twine. We attached chalkboard stickers to the glasses and wrote the guests’ names on them. So, they were multifunctional: place card, glass and favor. They were a big hit!

Here is the set up for the wedding ceremony in the pasture. It was a beautiful day. We lined up chairs on each side of the aisle, with pumpkins anchoring each row. At the end, hay bales served as the backdrop for the ceremony. The bride rode down the aisle on her beautiful Clydesdale, Bear. It was a breathtaking sight. The signs at the beginning of the aisle were done in chalkboard paint on pallets and then painted by a good friend. The right was the wedding party, the left welcoming everyone.

The day went off without a hitch. I am a bit of a task master, so I may have been a bit bossy making sure everyone and everything happened on time. As the ceremony went on, I stood back and watched as some of my favorite people exchanged their vows. And I was so touched to be a part of their special day.

  1. Not unexpected, but WOW Jill you did amazing!!! If I could redo my wedding to what I feel is more me, and what I love you, would be involved in helping with decor. Great job!


  2. This was such a lovely wedding!! You did so much for this event and you planned it out perfectly! I’d love to see more photos from the wedding. The cake was also very cute and fit in with the country theme. The pallets were painted with black chalk paint, then a permanent Sharpie white paint marker was used to put the wedding party name on the pallet, just in case it started to rain. Also, the bride going down the aisle on her horse was quite spectacular and beautiful. I don’t have any photos from the wedding, but that was quite the sight to behold.
    Keep up the good work! I’m loving the new blog and excited to see what you post next.
