We absolutely LOVE this whimsical Fall wedding! When we saw this beauty waiting in our inbox we got a huge smile on our faces – it looked like we had jammed hangers in our mouths! Cortney and Bobby did such an amazing job putting together a wedding that expressed them! Everything about their wedding was personal or sentimental – the food was made by Cortney’s family along with the desserts (we love when families come together to create such a magical experience for a couple).
Bride’s Comments: “I just remember as soon as I started walking down the aisle with my dad and thinking someone dropped me into a fairytale wedding in a magazine, it was beyond beautiful. I was so happy with our handmade wedding, and I wouldn’t change a thing!”
Wedding Decor & Details
“I really wanted to incorporate vintage doors into our outdoors wedding and I was able to get all of the doors we used from my grandparents old house. They both died when I was in high school, so it was really sweet to be able to use parts of their home throughout our special day.
“I made all of the bunting that was hanging up in the dessert room and by the entry table. I used an old window from my great grandparents house to display old wedding pictures of our parents and grandparents at the entry table.
“My mom and I also took on the task of making most of our vintage cake stands and repainting the antique drawers we used to display the desserts. I made all of the silver platter chalk boards and the dinner menu made from an antique window.
“I had Bobby and his groomsman etch hearts with Bobby and I’s initials on them on several pumpkins, and they turned out so great! One of my favorite touches of the entire day though, was the amazing vintage chandeliers that were hanging in the trees. They look beautiful before and after the sun went down!
“The centerpieces consisted of potted orange chrysanthemums in a tan tin pot with raffia tied around it, an orange and white pumpkin, burlap and blue yarn balls. I also wanted to tie in mason jars all throughout my wedding and what is better than using them to serve drinks in? So I hand painted hearts on hundreds of mason jars with chalk paint and asked guests to write their names on their cups and take them home as gifts.”
