Emily and Stephen threw a rustic wedding celebration that was big on DIY details. From the homemade alter decor to the bride’s rose and succulent bouquet, (which she made herself) to the little vignettes set at each reception table. The entire day was overflowing with handmade details.
You can see more of this gray and yellow rustic wedding in the full gallery, all captured by Pennsylvania wedding photographer Jamie D Photography. Be sure to read on to hear about their budget breakdown. It’s really great to hear about how much everything costs, event when most of the wedding is handmade.
on the ceremony decor
For the ceremony, we hung window panes and tulle between all of the posts to give it a more intimate feel. We also hung fabric in the back that came down to the top of barn shutters to enhance the more intimate feel.
At the front of the tabernacle we placed 3 old doors with old fences on either side and fabric draped to draw all of the elements together. My bridesmaids sat in old antique chairs for the ceremony. My dad, gave me away and married us so that was something very special.
A staircase was set up with mason jars that had yellow striped straws and a vintage-like label wrapped around them. Each label had the guest’s name on it and their table number.
Antique plates and napkins that were handmade by friends and family set the tone for this rustic inspired table decor.
Arrangements of bright dahlias, sunflowers, wild flowers, and lavender were housed in burlap wrapped mason jars. Each arrangement was set perfectly on tree slices, that were covered in vintage dollies.
Coffee lover’s wedding favors-
Stephen and Emily gave each guest a burlap bag of authentic Honduran coffee wrapped with lace trim. The labels were wrapped around the bag with twine, and if you notice they used the same labels for the favors and the escort cards. Buying in bulk not only keeps a consistent look and feel throughout, but also saves on cost.
