Sweet Fall Wedding!

So I am very excited to share this wedding with you, because it is my own wedding. Since there are so many details to share with all of you, I will break it up into a couple different posts. The second post will feature all of the yummy desserts and favors that I made for the wedding. So without further ado, I hope everyone enjoys a glimpse at my wedding!

We decided to have our wedding at a Bed and Breakfast that was on the water. Since I am from Maryland I wanted to be able to have pictures on the water, but I didn't want to get married on the beach, I think this place worked out perfectly.

 This is the ceremony site all set-up before any guests arrived. The ceremony was held outside under the pergola and the reception was held inside a beautiful rustic barn.

 The place was so large we had to use golf carts to get from the water to the reception site.
My husband Jason and I did a lot of DIY projects to add special touches to the wedding. Jason made six lanterns, which we sprayed black and placed etched glass inside. I etched each piece of glass with our initials. I think that they turned out great! We hung them from the tree outside of the reception area, where cocktail hour took place.
 Here is the tree lit up at night!
 I decided to be different and make a wedding menu! We bought a three-pane window and sprayed it with chalk spray paint. I then listed the appetizers, dinner, and dessert options in each of the panes.This menu was set-up right outside the reception area where the cocktail hour was held. We also brought in all of the hay bales, pumpkins, and mums to decorate the Inn.
 For the guestbook, i bought an old typewriter and place paper in it for the guests to type their well-wishes to us. We also took photos of our parents and grandparents weddings to display in the table. If you look closely you can get a glimpse of our dessert table.

 We had our centerpieces made by a local blown glass artist! Each pumpkin was slightly different and unique. We gave them as gifts to our wedding party. I love the way they turned out! We also had our champagne flutes made out of hand-blown glass to match the decor.

 I hope you enjoyed this look into our wedding! Stay tuned for when I share all of the yummy desserts we had to offer. Also, don't forget that our giveaway ends tomorrow, so, enter now if you haven't already!
