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 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.
