Charming, Small, Outdoor Wedding

From the very first time I talked with Katie, I was in love with her approach to her wedding. She wanted a small, intimate wedding for 50 guests with a laid back feel where guests could celebrate. She was such a pleasure to work with, and her wedding is one of my favorites.

It took a while to find the perfect venue, but we found it at the Hardy Chambers Farmhouse near Pulaski. The historic space was a perfect fit for the couple.

The ceremony was held by outdoors. With a flowering arbor and mismatched chairs, it was charming.

All of the wedding flowers were handpicked on the farm and placed around the house and outside.

After the ceremony, guests were greeted with appetizers served on a hanging wooden table with a vintage lace linen and mismatched china.

Guests gathered at long farm tables for a family style farm-to-table inspired dinner. Each place had a note from the bride listing all the family traditions she included in her celebration.

Guests had the option of a full beverage station and signature cocktail. The bar was an adorable vintage wagon.

The cake included vintage toppers from the bride’s grandparents. Guests were also served banana pudding.

Everyone spent the evening dancing in the yard and celebrating.
