Julia, my little sister, was married on a cold but beautiful autumn day. The wedding was out in the country, on a working farm. They have a lovely barn just for events, and that set the stage for the rustic chic nuptials.
This was a major DIY wedding. And when I say that, I mean it. We did just about everything outside of building the barn ourselves. My mom and I made and designed the decor, the food, and the cakes. Annie, my older sister, did the flowers. Julia did all the stationary and the guest table/activities. Some dear friends of mine served all the food. A friend of the couple photographed the the wedding, and both families pitched in for setting up every single thing and the equally crazy tear-down afterwards. It had plenty of fun times, and everything turned out lovely, but boy howdy, I'm glad it's done.
Here's a look at the wedding! I'll be back tomorrow with details on the food and decor.
