This bride didn’t let anything stop her from creating her perfect wedding whether it be cow pies or an impressive amount of DIY projects. Of course her family and friends lent their time and skills and made it a true labor of love that culminated into a gorgeous wedding. If you love floral crowns, milk and cookies, and burlap bows then don’t stop here, keep scrolling!

When planning my wedding my main objective was to create an event that people would remember and that would also reflect Simon and mines personality. I remember right after we got engaged we were trying to think of a venue, and for me personally I didn’t want to do something someone has done before. We were in the car and we drove past this field and I just said, “Wouldn’t it be so cool to do our wedding in a huge field?!” Well that’s exactly what we decided to do. In that exact field!

It was a lot of work! I had everyone out working their butts off clearing out cow pies, picking weeds, and stacking fire wood. For some reason they still like me after I made them all do this. We did all the decorations. My mom spent hours ripping burlap and making a beautiful succulent wreath from her garden.  I spent hours making tassels out of tissue paper. I had this vision in my mind and spent the whole time hoping it would all come together. When it was all done and set up I was so happy at how everything worked out. People kept saying to me, “I was a little worried, but you made it so beautiful!”

I think you spend all this time wanting everything to be perfect. Focusing on all these little details. Once the actual day came all I could focus on was being married to this amazing man I chose to spend forever with. The day was so perfect, and I could not stop smiling! I also had a great appreciation for those people who made it extra special. When we were taking pictures we had this little old man in a top hat come over to us. He handed me a coin and said, ” Tuppence in your shoe for good luck.” In this amazing British accent. I really appreciated this small act of kindness from a complete stranger. Now I have this gorgeous coin to look at and remember the best day of my life thus far.

For my wedding my family was amazing at going with what I wanted. I have heard of a lot of girls that let their families take over their day and it isn’t even a reflection of the couple. I was really happy with how everything turned out. The only thing I wish I could have prevented was I didn’t do a tiered wedding cake, but I had other cakes for the guests. My family went to go get our cake out of the way after we cut it, and the guests ate all of it. I am still bitter about it!;) I wish it had been a little more organized.
