Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen! This next wedding is sure to make your jaws drop. Christa Elyce sent over the images from this country chic Montgomery wedding and again, she has floored us with her ability to capture beautiful moments (check out more more of her great work here and here). I am in love with so much about this wedding-the soft color palette, the golden accessories, the gorgeous flowers-I could go on and on. Olde Dobbin Station served as the perfect backdrop for this shabby chic affair. The floral arrangements provided by Pearls and Roses leave me speechless. If you can stand it, there's more pretty in the gallery.
From the Bride...
What was your wedding theme/style/color palette?
Our wedding theme was "Southern Country Chic." Our inspiration initially came from the venue we chose. Our color palette consisted of blush, seafoam, and ivory with touches of lace.
Any special readings?
Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
What did you and your bridal party wear?
What flowers were in your bouquets, buttonholes, and centerpieces?
Peonies, Roses, Dusty Miller, Scabiosa Pods, etc.
Signature cocktails? Buffet / BBQ / formal sit down meal? Wedding cake?
For drinks we served beer, wine, mixed drinks, tea, water and soda. During cocktail hour, we served shrimp diablo shooters and chicken wellingtons. We had a sit down meal. For dinner we had pistachio crusted tilapia and filet migon paired with new potatoes and a vegetable medley. We had a Bavarian cheese cake as our wedding cake and instead of a groom's cake we served Blue Bell vanilla ice cream in individual cups with wooden spoons.
How did you decorate your venue? Any DIY projects? Favors?
We decorated our venue with flowers, candles, lanterns, wooden ladders and crates. Ryan and his dad made all of the wooden boxes and table numbers. Taylor and her sister made all of the invitations and menus cards. In lieu of party favors, we made donations to charities that are near and dear to our hearts Multiple Sclerosis and March of Dimes.
What made your wedding just 'so you'? Favorite moments?
Before Ryan's Granny passed away, she made handkerchiefs for all the important women in Ryan's future wedding (his future wife, the mothers and grandmothers). Ryan gave a handkerchief for the wedding to each female in remembrance of his Granny.
