From the Bride:
We designed the wedding based on things we love and things that mean something to us. My mom always had vintage milk glass pieces growing up and my grandmother always used pink depression glass. Those vintage, yet classic pieces inspired a romantic and intimate theme that just fit us perfectly.

A good majority of the design detail was DIY! My mom and many other members of our family played a big role in creating the special elements of our wedding that made it so amazing. For our sweetheart backdrop we built a frame out of Birchwood and hand made small flowers out of scrapbooking paper and large flowers out of crepe paper and strung them over the frame.

We made the flags behind the candy table, painted and distressed the antique windows that we used for the seating chart, handmade the jumbo-sized anemone that the flower girl carried…and the list goes on. Although it was a lot of work, it is neat that we were able to hand-pick or hand-make almost every design element of our special day!

Personally, the cake table was a favorite of mine. We had three cakes that sat on antique cake stands that belonged to my mother and great grandmother. For the table itself, we used an antique dresser that was from my childhood bedroom. It all had a lot of meaning, making it very special to us. We had three cakes with two flavors: lemon poppy seed cake, lemon curd, vanilla butter cream and vanilla buttermilk cake, vanilla custard, vanilla butter cream.

Hot Air Balloon Wedding

custom pink wedding balloons

Every wedding has balloons, just not balloons that are large enough to transport you and your new spouse to your reception for one of the most epic entrances ever! This pink picnic themed wedding was filled with pink floral decor, a pink ombre ruffle cake and even two matching pink outhouses, but it was the giant red and yellow hot air balloon that Shawn and Ashley touched down into their reception in that truly delighted their guests. And who can blame them, it sounds amazing to us too!

If you are in love with the hot air balloons or maybe you want to see even more pink decor ideas, either way you’ll want to stop by the full gallery here. All beautifully captured by Lauren Athalia Photography.

This sweet southern ceremony started off in a beautiful lodge in Tennessee where the brides mother and brother walked her down the aisle. A memorial locket dangled from her bouquet to commemorate her father who passed away in 2007.

From the Bride:
As far as budget, I honestly didn’t have one, a lot of it was my own responsibility, with some help from family. We cut some things to have something awesome like the hot air balloon! I really wanted something fun and memorable, and it was perfect as it was a picnic theme. A lot of projects were DIY – I am blessed with uber creative friends!! So all together we spent around 20k.

Talk about making an entrance! Guests’ jaws dropped when Shawn and Ashley touched down at their reception in a hot air balloon from Middle Tennessee Hot Air Balloon. How fun! Plus guests were given tethered balloon rides through out the night. What a neat addition to this picnic themed party!

From The Bride:
The one thing I would of done differently would have been to be more organized about the post-wedding plans. I should have put together a clean up crew and had my bags waiting in the car. Trying to pack my things, and having to say goodbye to my family and friends all over again left me way too emotional right before the honeymoon. So my advice is do not let yourself clean up your wedding, or wait to get your things together for the honeymoon – Have everything waiting in the getaway car so you can actually getaway!!

From Lauren Athalia Photography:
As the sun set the glow sticks came out and the dance party began until late in the evening. The night came to a close when guests along with the bride and groom lit paper lanterns and released them to the sky to commemorate this joyous occasion. Heart shaped sparklers were the big bright send off as the newlyweds left for their honeymoon and new life together.
