One Fine Day.....

(Photos taken with iPhone)

And One Fine Day it was...
Monica Sanders, Tina Smith (Cherry Hill Cottage) and myself 
 had the privilege of working with
 Dr.Guy Danielson & Sheri Stillwell to create an Unforgettable Romantic Vintage Wedding!

With a personal touch in mind, we worked very close with Sheri &Guy to make sure everything was coordinated with "the couples" style. Sheri first picked out the invitations which were so elegantly beautiful, a cream linen paper with chocolate ink and a D monogram. We then placed a piece of burlap in the invitation and wrapped a piece of twine around the return RSVP.
The Dinner Table... Sheri said from the beginning of planning, 
 I love to sit down at a table with a lot of glasses as it gives the table a distinctive romantic feel.
As you can see, her request was fulfilled with a water/tea glass, red & white wine glasses and minature carafe's which complimented the cream and silver-lined china.  We dressed each table with a cream tablecloth and  burlap topper, vintage mirror and large mercury compote full of white and cream roses, hydrangeas and tulips created by Wild Iris Florist in Henderson.  The romance continued with 8 votive's (mercury glass and glass with wire footed votives) on each table.  The twinkle of the candles over the mirrors was just beautiful.  Sheri wanted the family tables to be special so we placed a burlap sash on the family chairs and each lady received a mercury glass crown with white rose and moss to take home.  The gentlemen received a boutonniere and the granddaughters had the most precious halo of rosemary and fresh honeysuckle with vintage style ribbon hanging.  We topped each plate off with a personal name card and Sheri & Guy had a burlap cone filled with rosemary and flowers tied onto the back of their sash's.

The Candy/Cake table... Simply Sweet!  A SWEETS banner hung as a backdrop with a shepherds gate above.  We layered the table with burlap ruffled table covers, vintage suitcases, vintage mirrors and stacked  vintage glassware!  The cake was simply delicious as Cakes by Carrie also created the cake balls and cupcakes in chocolate and cream cheese flavors.  The cake sat on a galvanized and rust round cake stand and we topped it off with a bird crown.Popcorn was placed in tarnished silver bowl and newspaper bags were used for the guest to take home goodies and I promise, this table was a hit!

Bar Tables...We wrapped the bar tables in cream cloths and wrapped burlap ribbon around the bottoms.  We then placed tall glass vases filled wrapped in burlap with a touch of rosemary.  The vases sat on a tree stump and then fresh flowers were displayed in a mercury glass vase with a a simple candle votive.  These tables were very simple, yet the look was perfect with the rest of the decor.  The kids at the wedding also took home a beta fish as a favor, after all, the venue was on a beautiful lake!

The fireplace...lit and glowing, The Petroleum Club on Lake Tyler was a rustic yet elegant place to have the wedding...(located right next to the HGTV Tyler Dream home built a few years back)
Now back to the fireplace...we placed a set of old shutters on the mantle and attached an extra large dried wreath as the focal point above the mantle.  A dried honeysuckle mantle piece with twinkle lights was then placed on the mantle and 2 urns with honeysuckle balls filled with old vintage paper and an old clock was setting on each side of the fireplace hearth.  Rose petals were placed on the floor where the ceremony took place.  The bride,Sheri, is amazingly beautiful and the dress, just took everyone's breath away!
 I just can't wait to see the ceremony pictures from her photographer, David Hill Photography which will hopefully be posted soon!

Well, even though the Fairytale Romantic Wedding has ended, a beautiful couple will begin their new life together with warm memories and pictures of their very special Romantic wedding with family and special guest it was definitely
