sophisticated country wedding series: 7: fairy girls

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

I wasn’t planning on posting anymore from the “sophisticated country wedding” series but I received such wonderful responses to the first six that I figured it may not hurt to show just a few more…here we go…

Go big or go home…that was my motto when it came to our flower girl…or girls, rather. Quite possibly, [...]

sophisticated country wedding series: 8: family favorites

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Who doesn’t love a table full of sweet treats, not to mention a table full of homemade family favorite treats? In addition to our wedding cake, we called upon our family members to help with the dessert table…here is what we got…

On my dessert menu for tonight: one slice of one year old wedding [...]

sophisticated country wedding series: 6: mad hatter cake

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

I couldn’t help myself! When will I ever again have the chance to create a two and a half foot tall pile of sugar? I just had a hard time taking this task so seriously. It’s cake! It just didn’t seem right mixing formality with something that brings just about everyone [...]

sophisticated country wedding series: 5: ring bearing nest

Friday, September 26th, 2008

It just didn’t fit. Not the scene, not the theme…a pillow seemed too fancy, too frilly. But what would we use? A bird cage? No…too big and distracting. A bird house? No…too boxy and just not that cute. Ah ha! A bird nest! That’s just what we had our handsome ring bearer carry down the [...]

sophisticated country wedding series: 4: pumpkin wine bucket

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

Ah…the things you can do with a pumpkin. The possibilities are endless!! Take, for example, this fall inspired wine bottle display. Perfect for a wedding reception in a hay filled barn. I conned my brother and Eric’s best man into carving a few of these out for me the day before [...]

sophisticated country wedding series: 2: boutineers

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

By the looks of my blog, it comes as no surprise that, well…I like birds. The idea of having a nature, bird, outdoors themed wedding only seemed suitable considering the fact that our ceremony would be held outside and on a farm. While flipping through a Martha Stewart Weddings magazine, I came across the idea [...]

sophisticated country wedding series: 1: intro

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

In just under one month from now, Eric and I will no longer hold the title of “newlyweds.” We will celebrate our one year anniversary. We’ll be an old married couple! Our wedding was held on a sheep farm in Lovettsville, Virginia. We had, what I like to call, a [...]

memory lane

Monday, July 14th, 2008

A visit to the country is just what I needed to refresh my mind and soul after a rough few days on the couch. Life beyond the weathered fences and white barn doors of the country can get a little chaotic at times. After frequent trips in my mind of our wedding [...]

jumping in

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

Well, here I am. I’ve officially jumped into the world wide web of blogging. I’ve been dipping my toes in for quite some time as I’ve enjoyed visiting blogs of all sorts. Thanks to a very HTML savvy friend, Kevin, I am now able to partake in the posting frenzy. So…who [...]
