Julia's Wedding, Part 2

Today I'll be sharing some more photos from Julia's wedding, mainly the food and decor. As I mentioned before, this was a major DIY event, and my mom and I made all the food, including the wedding cakes, and did almost all the decor. Yes, we are crazy.

Annie did the flowers, and they were perfection. She totally captured the vibe with just a few blooms!

Julia was in charge of the guest table, and made a lovely display with photos and vintage props. Instead of a traditional guestbook, guests signed a globe that had been painted matte black.

It all came together for the perfect rustic chic wedding.

Amazing! Your family is so talented, and the pictures are perfect. I may have to hire you if I ever need a wedding planner (hopefully one day!).
