Our Vintage....Country wedding! 10~4~13

WE are now....Mr. & Mrs. Tate! My wedding and reception was everything that I had envisioned and more.
My dress was a $7 thrift shop find!

It was perfectly imperfect.....I loved every element. It was a family affair and it was an event to remember..FOREVER! The decor, the food....everything was ME and a reflection of us and the life we are building together. My groom was in on every last detail..he didn't always get where I was going but he was along for the ride and even he was impressed by the final result.

The ceremony and reception were held in our back yard at "Green Acres"...although this is a rental property, we hope to be able to purchase it one day.

I own everything in the pictures and we did not rent any props nor have a wedding planner or professional photographer. We purchased items at Walmart, Kmart, Savemart grocery store for mini roses and white pumpkins..and Vons grocery store for red roses used in big ball jar vases. I was able to find perfect items at thrift red rose plates and wheat plates....all burlap banners were ordered on ebay from a great barrels and old doors from craigslist and then I incorporated items from around my home.

 I was thrilled that all of our guests had a great time,enjoyed the food and commented on how amazing our decor was....My daughter made all the signs...I had the items to use and she personalized it based on sayings and songs that I chose.
