Hawkily Ever After: The Reception Details

While we were taking our family formals, our guests made their way over to our reception venue: Legacy Hall.


Guests were invited to grab iced tea or lemonade in a Mason jar…


…or find something stronger at the bar.


The cigars were out…


…along with my matches!


It was so neat to see so many of my projects and planning finally come to fruition.








Are you planning a lot of DIY projects for your reception, or are you leaving it to the pros?

    you had such lovely details… but out of all of the pretty that I saw, your burlap runners were my favorite!!! I love the lace detailing on them!! Did you make them?

    I love your centerpieces and the burlap runners. This is the look I’m going for. I also bought a couple of those small jars to use as votives and I was second guessing them but I really love them after seeing them in your pictures! perfect.
