Saturday was a gorgeous Texas spring afternoon. We were delighted to be a part of setting up for a large but charming outdoor wedding last weekend in Navasota. The ceremony took place on a gorgeous property in Grimes County. The beautiful countryside perfectly complimented by the subtle rustic accents in the decor.
It started with the wrought iron lanterns hanging from shepherd hooks along the way to the ceremony site. Over 240 white Samsonite chairs perfectly aligned for the many guests to view the nuptials.
After the ceremony the guests would be led to the two 20' x 40' marquis tents strung with globe lights and par cans, covering twenty-four round tables adorned with our new "hemp" (faux burlap) linens and fruitwood folding chairs.
The centerpieces alternated between wrought iron candelabras with candles, and glass bubble bowls with flower arrangements. I just love the rolled pearl napkins tied with string! The simplicity of the table settings strengthened the rustic charm!
One of my favorite details of the reception: The head table, sweetly situated out in the open between the two tents, under the stars The best part: The bride's and groom's chairs adorned hand painted "Bride" and "Groom" signs tied on with rope. Adorable!!
If only we'd been fortunate enough to see it all in the ambiance of the candlelight, tent lighting, and of course the stars in the Texas night sky. I'd imagine it was fit for a fairy tale!
Congratulations and best wishes to newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. Self!! Thank you for the glimpse of your special day!
