Maine’s Best Wedding…or at least best of 2014

I planned and executed the most amazing wedding this weekend! Here is the story of the weekend in photos. The theme of this wedding was neutral, industrial, rustic chic! The only pop of color came from the flowers. I hope you enjoy the wedding as much as I did.

Here is the walkway that leads to the event.

Here are the two tents under construction. They built a deck that served as the foundation for the tents. We had a clear tent for the ceremony that we turned into a lounge…so cool!

This is how we added them to the tent on a grid with a very tall ladder…thankfully my husband did this for me!

Here is what the lighting over the dance floor looked like in the end. I had babies breath balls to hang with the lights.

Now we bring the whole vision together with…

  • Wine barrel bar tables and chairs
  • Wooden cross-back chairs
  • Harvest tables
  • Industrial coffee tables
  • Linen chairs and sofas
  • Sunbrella fabric ottomans
  • Hanging candle lanterns
  • Metal lattice lanterns
  • Flowers and more flowers!!!!
  • Votive candles
  • We made burlap overlays for the tables.
  • We had a boat next to the bar for drinks.
  • We took tree roots and added succulents…they were fabulous…

  • Lindsay added the hanging vases and flowers.
  • I constructed the arrangements that made up the alter area.
  • Snell Family Farm provided the flowers and my grapevine arbor hung from the roof od the tent.
  • We added grasses & mint in copper buckets to finish the aisle.

This wedding was so much fun to do….but it was a ton of work! I know the bride and groom were very happy with the décor and so was I. It was worth the hours of planning, lugging, and flower arranging.
