The wedding at Lonesome Valley: Dinner and Dancing

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

On Monday, I shared Zach and Rebecca's wedding ceremony. 




I had the pleasure of creating and personalizing their special day and today I want to show you the details of the dinner and dancing, 
     



The restaurant and tent were just a short walk through the garden.













One of my very favorite details of the wedding was this tall pen and ink guest tree. The couple ditched the traditional guest book and had each guest sign a branch of the bare pine tree. I had to actually add branches as the night went on because I was unsure how big people would sign. I just got it back from the framers and now it is complete with glass. Now the couple can hang it on their wall and daily recall every person that was part of their special day. 









There were a lot of kids at the Kennedy's wedding, so I created a custom activity book accompanied with branch crayons to keep them occupied.   






I'll share the whole book in a later post. 









Believe it or night, it was a chilly June evening when the sun set. A combination of throws and pashminas were perfect to wrap up in as the guests sat in front of the fire.  
 
 



The Adirondacks were outfitted with a custom hand painted chevron pillow.










Even one of my fantastic assistants was outfitted in chevron! {Please Lord, let her fall in love with interior design, change majors. and come work with her mama!!}










I painted a little watercolor of Canyon Kitchen at the beginning of our planning process that became a unifying element that we were able to use on the invites, napkins, and pillows.








A standing chalkboard listed the delicious appetizer offerings.  









The cutest mother of the bride and big sister of the bride! 










Tea towels were customized with the logo and used as oversized napkins. And did you know that you can buy vintage silverware for the same price {or even cheaper!} than renting? Ours were found at Scotts Market in Atlanta. The eclectic collected look is perfect for an outside rustic event.   

  




Mason jars were filled with lots of draft and sweet tea.




When you find old bad framed artwork at a flea market or garage sale, buy it! Take out the artwork, and use it as your template. Cut out a piece of Masonite and paint it with chalkboard paint. Then throw away the artwork! If needed, give the frame a little spray paint. I used a very light coat of Krylon Fusion Brown Metallic Hammered spray paint here and I loved the results.    

  


See the twig chandeliers in the tent? I don't have good close-ups of them, but I created 3 of these 6' rustic chandies using branches, irrigation hose, thick rope, black electrical tape, and Christmas lights. I also tucked some leafy branches in them the day of. They were so pretty when the sun went down and they were all lit up.
 



I just love the combination of the zinc and wood topped farm tables.




















A riddling rack became a fun way to create a 'K' using the bridesmaids bouquets.  





The 4' moss 'k' started with a sketch on a piece of plywood and then, thanks to a wonderful wet creek in my back yard, it was covered in plush green mosses in lots of different varieties.   










Zach dancing with his wonderfully sweet mom, Becky. {Dad's in back with that great smile} I so enjoyed getting to know his family!




The evening ended with a beautiful sparkler send-off.




Congratulations Rebecca and Zach!!
