My Sister's Wedding

Sorry I have been a little MIA lately! My beautiful sister just got married last weekend and I was helping her with some last minute details. The wedding was gorgeous and my sister was even more so. The sight of her brought tears to my eyes. Just like us (you can read all about our wedding hereherehere, and here) her and Rick got married at my parent's ranch. We added a few "upgrades" to the wedding site, but for the most part, a good majority remained the same. Here are a few photos that I was able to snap amidst all the craziness that lead up to the big day. I'll post more once my sister gets the disc from the photographer.

The boys did an amazing job building the entrance from the cocktail area and dining/dance floor area. You can see the explanation behind the project here.



Here it is the morning of the wedding.











Here are some chalkboard signs that I made. If you are interested with personalized chalkboard signs, I sell them on Etsy.








I spent about 10 hours the day before the wedding putting together all of the arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres. If it wasn't for the help of some of the bridesmaids, I would have been working on the flowers for at least 23 hours. I'm sure of it. It was a boat load of hours but I am pretty happy with the way that everything turned out.

We re-used the succulent boxes that I used as centerpieces for our wedding (you can read about that DIY fiasco here) But, this time I added fresh flowers in with the succulents and I am OBSESSED with the way they look.







I also did some fresh flower arrangements. 




Here is the bride's bouquet. Not to shabby if I say so myself.


Again, these aren't the professional photos. But I hope to be posting them once they are edited by the photographer. 





Happy Day!

    1. Thanks Alyssa! Aren't they talented?! I was super impressed! It might be the best element of the wedding! I'll make sure to tell everyone!

      And thanks again for passing my name along for the chalkboard signage for the restaurant, it didn't end up working out, but I am so appreciative that you thought to give her my name! xoxo
