A Vintage Backyard Wedding...

What a joy it was to work with such a sweet an amazing family, The Edens of Beckville,TX.
Mike & Cathy Edens wanted their beautiful daughter, Paige, to have the wedding of her dreams with special touches such as family heirlooms, vintage findings and very significat and special pieces. As you can see from the pictures, We, Tina, Monica & I worked very closely with Paige and her parents to make she had the dream wedding she had always wanted! 
The Entrance...
We first created an entrance with the focal point of an old Blue truck, wrapped the front seat in lace and hung a chandelier!! This was so much fun to all of the guest arriving as most of them wanted their picture made with this special old blue!! Beside the truck sat an old dresser from the home with a vintage typewriter and urn filled with her favorite flower, Hydrangeas. Sticking out of  a drawer was some blue fans with ceremony imprinted on them and to the right of the dresser was a heart shaped birdcage with a set of white doves.  A wreath was placed on the gate with an old wood painted Wedding sign.
The Ceremony...
 As you walked in the gate of the backyard, you felt as if you were in your local country church.  Window panes were hung on the fence line along with blue mason jars & candles.  A set of old doors with twig wreaths were used at the entrance and then some original church pews lined up with a few old hymnals and fans.  We placed an old galvanized watering can beside each pew with blue and cream hydrangeas.  Alongside of the pews were white chairs and a quilt that Paige owned for kids and extra guest to sit on.  The focal point where the ceremony was held stood some old post from an old house, stained glass windows and 2 crystal vintage chandeliers that had come out of Paige's parents home.
The ceremony was just beautiful with the bridesmaids all dressed in different dresses adorned with lace, ruffles and ribbon. The bridesmaids and junior bridesmaid looked just adorable with their cowboy boots on as they carried a hydrangea wrapped in burlap and lace.  Then the boys, well they didn't look so bad themselves with blue shirts, brown pants and suspenders!  The little ones were just as cute as you see in the pics, just too precious!  As the ceremony ended and the couple was announced, a group of doves were released and it was beautiful as they circled around a couple of times. 
The doves did  return for those of you wondering.
The Reception...
The reception was so much fun to decorate....Blue table linens with a different topper on each table, a mix of vintage china and family heirlooms were placed on each table.  The brides table held a large burlap cloth trimmed in lace and there we placed all white plates and mason jars with straws.  The bride and groom both had a white linen slipcover and we placed an old vintage crate which held mason jars for the bouquets. 
The Bride's table...
Paige's table was created using various crates, old drawers, an old chair and an amazing old mirror.
Paige had 3 cakes that were just beautifully created by Cakes by Carrie and I just loved the teacup.
In between the bride and groom table was an old wine barrel with old drawers and a funnel which held the plates, forks and napkins for the guest.
The Grooms table...
The Grooms table had a duck hunting theme.  We used old drawers, crates, bullets and some vintage ducks from the family.  We even had fresh moss from the trees of Caddo Lake, a lantern and some duck calls.
The Bar...
The backdrop of the bar included a grouping of galvanized buckets on the fence.  Cable wire tables were used with a galvanized bucket on top which held the beer and wine and a clay flower pot which held the tops.  We also placed a wheelbarrow full of drinks and an old blue vintage cabinet with chicken wire held the wine and mason jars.
The Gifts..
The gifts were placed on an old flower cart at the front of the reception entrance alongside of our new burlap sofa we had covered which was a great place to sit and relax or take pictures.

A special Thank you to Paige and Cory Moon for letting us help you create such a Fun and Amazing Backyard wedding!

  9. This sounds really weird to have a backyard wedding at someone else’s house. Instead of this I would search for affordable wedding venues Los Angeles. You never know what’s going to happen that day as you haven’t taken any permission and taking a huge risk.
