A Western Wedding

Yes, I really do remember what I say I will do... I just... sometimes don't manage to get to doing what I said I would do. Well, this is not one of those moments. :-)  I wrote in my last post that I would share details of the wedding with you all, and now I'm going to do just that. If you just so happen to be planning a western themed wedding... OH, enough already,  just let the pictures do the talking.

This is where the bride is to be married. Her brother built this entire set up...

Close up of the sign, the bride's mother made this using a wood burner. 

Close up of flowers and tulle wrapped with twine around the posts.

this is where the guests enter to sign the guestbook and leave their gifts and cards. The guest book rests on an old barrel, and a $2 burlap sack adds a touch of the rustic. 

The guest book and just look at the pen holder!

This is where the guests were to leave their cards. The bucket was purchased at Micheals craft store. Then we wrapped the bucket with tulle and twine.  The "card" sign was made using a free printable vintage frame from Prima Marketing's Facebook page. I distressed the edges with ink and used the pencil transfer technique to print the word "card"( using the font of my choice ) onto the frame image. 

Flowers placed in Mason Jars at each table for the reception. Each jar is wrapped with vintage seam binding, and set on a paper doily. I thought that this added such a charming touch to the wedding. 

Tin cans were used to hold the "Wedding Wishes" tags. Each guest could write a message for the bride!
The tags are a free printable found here. A piece of twine was tied through the top of each tag. The tin cans were just old soup cans, wrapped with tulle and twine. Then the happy couple's brand was added for a final touch.

Let's not forget the cake... isn't it beautiful? ! A very good friend of the bride made this cake for her!

I love the idea of flower filled glasses between each tier! 

This was such a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding. May their marriage be a union that will bring honor and glory to God for all of their days. :-) I was so privileged to have been there.
