    Our wedding would be considered rustic, shabby chic, whimsical, colorful, romantic, and personal. Most of the flowers we used were whimsy colorful wildflowers. The location had a lot of character. We got married outside on the property of a private residence. There was an old covered wagon on the property as well as a rustic wooden horse wagon. We had antique wagon wheel chandeliers in our reception tent. All of my bridesmaids each wore a different shade of coral from dark to light to create an ombre effect. We had a unity tree ceremony. We had lawn games during cocktail hour (custom made bean bag toss and ladder ball). Our wedding reception dinner was served family style with a salad, a chicken pasta, and fresh wood fired pizzas served tableside. We had different flavored cupcakes and cake pops for dessert all served from birch wood platters. There were lots of candles and lanterns to provide romantic lighting. Our transportation for our guests was yellow school busses (because I'm a teacher!)

    One thing I adore most about today's feature from Karen McNeil Photography is that it took place in Canada, not somewhere in the deep south! You might think what makes that so interesting, but the reality is that the reason that it is so wonderful is because it takes idea & the style of weddings from the south,making them into a completely usable 'theme' all their own. From the sweeping panels of fabric to a soft color palette bursting with full lush blooms, there is a romance from the south that is hard to escape. Toss in a gross bare shoulder gown and vintage ride and well, you have the makings for a wonderfully enchanting southern affair with every detail of sophistication!
