An Outdoor Wedding

Here’s a peek at the barn.  It’s been used for all different kinds of fun events… worship nights, dances, fundraisers and weddings.  I think the kids have enjoyed having a barn the most- riding their bikes and skateboards inside on rainy and cold days!

On this particular day we were prepping for a sunny and bright wedding.

Back inside, the food prep was in full swing.  This is the inside porch.  The door in the background leads to the barn kitchen and into the barn.

Here’s a look at the hors d’oeuvres.  My friend, Laina, was in charge.  She is so gifted with food presentation.  When she’s around I stick to her like glue and pretend I know what I’m doing.

She makes it look so easy… just set out some fruit, cheese, crackers, nuts- and boom!  There you have it.  A gorgeous display.  Even though I watch her like I hawk, I’m not sure I could ever reproduce what she creates.

This is the dining room.  The bridesmaids and the bride were inside with me anxiously awaiting their cue to walk down the aisle!  They were so cute playing the piano and laughing nervously.  They were such a fun bunch!

The bride and groom had their ceremony in the backyard under the trees.  It was simple and beautiful and enchanting. 

Beach Bunny is still my shadow 24/7.  She’s such a happy girl!  Here we are taking a peek at the final table set ups.  That’s my garden on the left.  The house is toward the right.  Can you see it under the trees?

 

My favorite look for a catered dinner is incorporating the antique tables and vintage ware.  I’d say I’m an old-fashioned kind of girl at heart!  I am so in love with anything vintage!  I hope it never goes out of style. 

What about you?  Are you crazy about antiques and vintage ware, too?

Gorgeous! My daughter just got married in January. You're right--now matter how long I stare at those pics of the fruit and cheese and crackers, I'm sure I could never get my display to look like that. Stopped over from UBP.
