My oldest daughter Stephanie gets married next June. As we plan for her formal wedding at Hotel Baker in St. Charles, I find myself looking back to my youngest daughter Bridget’s wedding this past October. While Stephanie’s wedding is all glitz and glam, Bridget’s wedding was a DIY rustic wedding held on a farm. We had so much fun planning a country wedding!
She was pulled down the aisle by her brother, the ring bearer, in this rustic wagon.
For some reason, I can’t find the photo of him pulling her down the aisle. Trust me, it was cute.
Did I mention they’re my grandchildren?
The cake was made by a friend of the bride and wore hand “painted” flowers and burlap ribbons.
I made burlap tablecloths for the reception. No sewing necessary … simply fray the edges! Planning a country wedding involves a lot of love and DIY and we had plenty of help from friends and family.
The chippy shutter was a garbage pick. It now decorates my family room.
The groom dancing his solo dance with his mother.
The dance floor was in the loft of the barn.
Little benches surrounded the dance floor for guests to take a break.
The groom hung all the lights and paper lanterns by himself the day before!
We made the food for the rehearsal dinner, which was held in another barn on the property.
Hubby made his signature BBQ chicken wings, requested by the bride.
And the happy couple off to their honeymoon in Punta Cana.
More photos of Bridget’s wedding are here and here.
I’ll post photos of Stephanie’s wedding sometime in June.
It’s been fun planning 2 weddings of completely different styles.
