Puppy Love: Prepping the Scene

It all started with a save-the-date…



And then came an invitation…



As guests arrived at the venue, they made their way around the front of the historic home…


They were able to grab a drink of lemon water…


In a glass jelly jar…


They could drop a card in our mailbox…


Make their way past our green-gingham-mason-jar-shepherd-hooks (say that 3 times fast)…


And sign our guestbook…


They were guided by the wooden wedding sign…


To our ceremony site…


Where there were tree stump stands and flowers decorating the aisle…


Our sand ceremony was ready to go…


And the words of our ceremony were printed and waiting for us in the antique books I found…


With that, we were ready to get the show started! Up next, the main event: WE GET MARRIED!

What special details did you incorporate on your big day?

    Love! I”m wondering who set all this up for you? That’s what I’m worried about

    @lealorali Our venue (Cedarwood in Nashville) was great, and the coordinators there set everything up. We dropped it all off in the morning and when we arrived it was all in place. We were very lucky!

    I forgot how adorable your save-the-dates were! Your venue is drizzled in southern charm. Just lovely!
