Outdoor Wednesday/Outdoor Wedding

Hi and welcome. Today I am joining Susan from a Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday. If you recall I had mentioned that I would be decorating for an outdoor wedding and then coordinating the event.
Here are some pictures of the backyard transformed into a wedding setting. The bride wanted just light pink added as color. We brought in an arch with tuling and the a floral swag as the centerpiece for the wedding.

I lined both sides of the arch with Shepard's hooks and baskets of florals. The arch also had a bucket with a larger Shepard's hook to add florals to draw the eye up and down.

We added white linens to all tables rented and owned so everything looked similar. I added ribbon and ribbon roses to the high boy tables.

I also lined with steps down from the deck to the ceremony area with tuling and pink ribbon. White impatients also lined the stairs.

In their kitchen garden window I transformed that into a wedding setting with a family photo, floral arrangement, basket with a plaque that says "all because two people fell in love", also the "R" initial framed for the families' last name.

Outdoor tables getting ready for floral petals and floral arrangements.

This is the table the food was served from. Just a floral and rose petals here to leave enough room for food.

The cake table was decorated with white, pink and tuling overlay. We added the fresh roses and rose petals as a finishing touch.
All in all it was a gorgeous day and everything went according to plan. The bride and groom was very happy and pleased with everything. Thank you for visiting and don't forget to visit Susan from a Southern Daydreamer.

Have a glorious day!
