Now before you dive into this wedding here are some sweet words from the bride about the road leading up to her wedding day.
Special words from the bride Jennifer:
From the day I got engaged, everyone around me told me that I was the most laid back bride they had ever met! I was not very picky or particular, but had a vision throwing the most rustic, laid-back, and full of love wedding that everyone would remember. Here are some details:
My dress and the bridesmaid dresses are all from David’s Bridal. My hair piece and flower belt came from there, as well… The guys got their tuxes at Rodinelli Tuxedo in Boardman. My flower girl ordered her dress from the Etsy shop CountryCoutureCo. Her dress came with the headband she was wearing, as well. I made our cake topper from a piece of wood and I used a wood burner. My stepdad made the wooden platform that the cake was sitting on.. all from the trees in my parents backyard. My decorations came all over. The “O” is from Hobby Lobby. My cousin’s boyfriend Justin Chesney designed and handmade the wooden sign that was used as our guest book! The basket we used for the card box was an old picnic basket that my grandma had and then my aunt added the flowers and I made the cards sign that was hung from it. As soon as the barn doors opened for me to walk down the aisle on my wedding day, I knew that everything had fallen perfectly into place.
My wedding day was a whirlwind of mixed emotions but every detail turned out just how I had envisioned it. The day went by too fast, but thankfully we have thousands of beautiful pictures portraying the smiles, tears, and laughter that made up “our wedding day!”
