We had a “fall” display… with corn stalks, pumpkins of all sorts, squash, hay bales and big lanterns.
We decorated the barn with paper lanterns…
Our head table was rather large… and U shaped. We had our immediate families including grandparents sitting at our head table. We felt like they should be honored, too.
We had a mix of western and aviation for the reception… It was only appropriate since Jon and I are both pilots. Our guest seat assignment card were “boarding passes”
…the table numbers were on chalkboards. The seat numbers at the table were matched with paper airplanes. The tables were old wagon wheels… our centerpieces were various wildflower bunches and American flags in mason jars. I didn’t want sunflowers… but the florist decided to put them in anyway. Oh well. Apparently a “western themed” wedding isn’t complete without sunflowers. ha!
We also had cowbells tied with ribbons for the guests to make some good ol’ country noise for the wedding party entrance.
In lieu of traditional wedding cake toppers…
We had the airplanes we fly “representing” us.
My Cessna and Jon’s jet. 😉
And, it wasn’t even an option… we just HAD to have a donut tower.
With a donut bride and groom.
Most of our wedding and reception was DIY… not because it was necessarily cheaper…but because I like to put unique touches things and I like to craft… and apparently I enjoy biting off more than I can chew in projects…especially when there is a deadline. haha
A little before the reception:
A real man helps you put your dancing boots on.
Our grand entrance:
“When You Say You Love Me” by Josh Groban.
Cutting the cake:
We were ready with our dancing boots on…
Two steppin’ under the neon lights 😉
These pics just crack me up… still!
Walking like an Egyptian…conga line!
Things got a little out of hand when Bon Jovi’s “Livin on a Prayer” came on…
Yeah. It was time to call it a night. 😉
I will post the honeymoon pictures in a separate post… this one is entirely too long as is. 😉
