Our Wedding Celebration- Decor

In the midst of house renovating we also managed to get married, as referenced here:
Scott and Carrie's big day

We came home and had a big, local party a couple weeks later.  It was fantastic to celebrate with all our families and friends.  My theme was a mix of preppy and nautical.  I stole some other brides line "I wanted my wedding to feel like you walked out of a J. Crew catalog into an Anthropologie catalog and had an intense desire to play croquet.”    The decor was very important to me.


A vignette on the dessert table.  I found these letters on clearance the week of the party and thought they played well against the vintage box,mercury glass and lantern.

I went with casual flowers in mason jars.  I also sprinkled my small mercury votives on the tables as well.


I made a photo guest book with pictures from our wedding and engagement photos. 

We created beer coozies for party favors featuring our custom monogram.  I stored them in a vintage drawer on the bar.

I placed mason jar luminaries on the cocktail tables.  Here they are pictured with the cocktail stirrers.  Shout out to my grandma who tied them the day before the party.

A square boxwood wreath that was one of two hanging on the doors into the bar.  I used my navy and white ribbon and the custom monogram to adorn them.  Sadly-in this picture the sticker is a bit crooked.

Over the gift table we strung a clothesline with pictures from our childhoods.  This one of Scott on a boat as a little boy is one of my favorites.

The two moss letters on the front doors of the club.  These were a craft project-which caused some serious hot glue gun blisters.  Then I discovered cold glue guns and got Heather M to do the "S" for me.  It was teamwork!

The Chinese lanterns from above.  I knew I wanted them over the dance floor.

The lanterns at dusk.

The vignette on the food table.  I used the vintage wood boxes and mercury glass here, too. 

Simple mason jar luminaries and small mercury glass votives made a perfect backdrop for the band.

The gift table set up.  I had a pendant banner made with "thank you" on it to use for our thank you cards as well as here(in the frame).  I used a vintage locker basket for cards.  This is a wide shot of the kid pics as well.

Here is a shot of one of the pendant banners that my fabulous friend, Jen M, made for the party.  I knew very early on that I wanted them throughout the venue.  I like this pic-Ben is dressed to coordinate with my party colors.
