The summer brides of 2012 are seriously kicking butt! Even though we’ve only posted a couple weddings from this year so far, I’ve been so impressed with each and every one. Couples are infusing personality and stylish details into their day to make it memorable for themselves and their guests, realizing it’s not about huge budgets and over the top decisions, but more about making sure your wedding represents you….as a couple.
Chris and Taci’s June 2012 wedding at On River’s Edge by Flat 4Photography is definitely no exception! This couple wanted their wedding to be as fun and laid back as they are, so they chose details like mason jar cobbler pies instead of cake, a bonfire with s’mores and an awesome photo booth (also from Flat 4 Photography) so their guests could kick back and have a great time!
Here’s what Taci had to say about their wedding:
“From the moment we started planning, we realized that we had the chance to create a day that would completely speak to our style. We really just wanted to show our guests a little piece of who we were, and portray our gratitude for loving and supporting us through the years. Fancy cake, high heels and tuxedos aren’t really our style- we’re more about bonfires, fruit cobblers and s’mores- so we asked Judy from Sweet Frostings to make us individual mason jar cobbler pies for our guests, which were to die for! I’m totally a texture girl and have a thing for unstructured bouquets, tiered dresses, chalkboards, burlap and lace. We just ran with these ideas and saved every used pickle and jam jar for months, decorated them with burlap and raffia and put floating candles inside to place on random ledges in the barn. I made chalkboard name tags out of paint and masking tape for each guest on mason jars, found a old window frame to use for the ceremony program from a generous man who ended up giving it to me for free when he found out what I was using it for, and borrowed an old chalkboard and antique easels for our seating arrangement from an amazing local sculptor who happens to be a good friend of ours. The DJ had everybody on the dance floor all night, and it was hands down the best night of our lives! I mean, who wouldn’t want to drink from a mason jar and play in a photo booth all night?!”
