We got married at the Weston Red Barn Farm in Weston, Missouri. It was a bit chilly, but hopefully in a cozy way :) Our goal was to create elements that communicated "rustic, comfort, and charm."
We wanted the reception to glow from how many lights were in the space. And so we arrive at this week's "Wedding Wednesday" project: Mason Jars! I thought of the idea of using mason jars covered with lace, burlap, twine, anything rustic looking, and then using small battery tea lights to make them glow. Here is a look at the table, you can see the jar to the right of the floral arrangement - these were all over the tables!
The first step to this process was finding miscellaneous jars of all shapes and sizes. I probably spent 100-150 dollars on this, plus the cost of the battery operated lights - which are really not that expensive if you use amazon and ebay.
Here were some of the results (all pictures were taken by Kaitlin Colston Photography - she is AMAZING!!! Hire her yesterday! www.kaitlincolston.com)
Each jar looked a bit different, just like the bridesmaids dresses...
We used twine and lace!
Pretty, huh? Next Wednesday I'll show you all the plates we collected - each place setting was unique and gathered from various antique/thrift stores.
