Country Vintage Texas Wedding

Imagine being greeted with a grilled cheese sandwich, a cup of tomato soup and a side of fried pickles when you arrived at a wedding. How tasty does that sound? That’s just one of the many thoughtful touches that went into this country vintage Texas wedding.

The bride shares so much more with us in the full wedding gallery that you must read by clicking here. Captured in true Texas fashion by Natalie Shelton.

The tables were a collaboration with the bride and Bows and Arrows. Every table displayed a different setting of vintage jars, bird cages and chalk boards. This meant a few trips to Canton, Texas, a few good friends, and magical pieces that the bride has now for memories and parties to come. The cake table was set with vintage candies and three cakes with vintage birds atop each…..the guests all loved the cake.

The bride had several trips to Canton, Texas to collect all the vintage bottles that the florist filled with a different array of flowers. Frames were purchashed at Goodwill, and spray painted by friends to suit the theme. Her friends threw her a bachelorette party exclusively to prepare the paper cut outs for tables and all the props for photo booth. This was a huge friends-and-family endeavor that lasted a few months. On each table, guest were greeted with personalized crossword puzzles.

The reception started with Paul McCartney’s “Baby I’m Amazed,” a Tequila shot instead of champagne toast and magical country music through out the night ….. thanks to The Baldwins and Clay Pendergrass. The guest were presented with cactus plants in metals jars with precious notes …. Darcy loves Ashley and love grows. Thanks to the grooms aunt and Ashley’s best friend for helping with the prickly succulents.
Many magical moments were had, and the memories will be forever.

    Admiring the persistence you put into your website and in depth information you provide. It’s great to come across a blog every once in
    a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked
    your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
    Greetings! I’ve been reading your blog for a long time now and
    finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Kingwood Tx!
    Just wanted to tell you keep up the great work!
    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
    A couple of my blog audience have complained about my
    site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?
    I’m curious to find out what blog platform you are utilizing? I’m
    experiencing some minor security problems with my latest blog and
    I would like to find something more safe. Do you have any suggestions?

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for rookie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job
    with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me
    on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!
    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage?

    My website is in the exact same niche as yours and my users would genuinely benefit from
    some of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this ok with you.
    Appreciate it!
    Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?

    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
    Awesome blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any message boards that
    cover the same topics talked about here?
    I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot!
    Hey! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading through your posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same subjects? Thanks a lot!
    Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have created some nice methods and we are looking to swap techniques with others, be sure to shoot me an email if interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your weblog.
    You have some really great articles and I feel I would be a good
    asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off,
    I’d love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Cheers!
    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its field. Great blog!
    Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you
    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m
    not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I
    thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks
    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or
    outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    authorization. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from
    being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.
    Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.
    Hi! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to look it over. I’m definitely enjoying the information.
    I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Terrific blog and fantastic style and design.
    Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own
    blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .
    . Any tips? Many thanks!
    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of
    websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about Is there a way I can
    import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!
    Does your website have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email.

    I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
    It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate
    to this excellent blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will share this site with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
    Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse
    your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you
    provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on
    my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, fantastic blog!
    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
    Right now it sounds like Movable Type is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your
    Terrific post but I was wanting to know if you could
    write a litte more on this subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Appreciate it!
    Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!
    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thank you!
    Good day! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a team of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us useful information to work on. You have done a marvellous job!
    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and
    tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction
    of a good platform.
    Hello! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
    Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    This design is spectacular! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the
    eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and
    visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Excellent work!
    Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be
    bookmarking and checking back often!
    Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group?
    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Cheers
    Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!
    Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never
    seem to get there! Appreciate it
    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I
    need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?

    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers
    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.

    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thank you!
    I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later
    on. All the best
    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone
    to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thanks
    Wow! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely different topic but
    it has pretty much the same layout and design.
    Excellent choice of colors!
    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
    Howdy are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but
    I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no backup.

    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
    Hello! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m absolutely enjoying your
    blog and look forward to new updates.
    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard
    on. Any suggestions?
    Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?

    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not
    seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share.
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading?

    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure why but this site is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back
    later and see if the problem still exists.
    Heya! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the superb work!
    Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say fantastic blog!
