We had a blast scrolling through their pages of goodies to pick our favorites. Keep reading to see our top registry picks from Wayfair that you won’t find at any of the traditional registry shops.
It’s no secret that Chip and Joanna of HGTV’s Fixer Upper have helped bring modern farmhouse style to the mainstream. This creamy white pitcher would be right at home in their Texas farmhouse kitchen, serving up some lemonade with a big plate of cookies.
So technically you probably don’t NEED a wine flight kit…but how cute would this bamboo and slate tray be for a romantic evening at home with your newly minted spouse?
If you like the sleek and simple look when it comes to flatware, this five-piece set is perfection.
This cutting board with the diamond cut-outs makes a bold and fun accent for your kitchen.
How amazing are these art deco inspired plates for a mid-century style home? Great Gatsby dinner parties, anyone?
Use your wedding registry as an opportunity to upgrade your Craiglist or hand-me-down furniture with fun pieces, like this bold striped chair, which makes the perfect accent piece for a neutral living room.
We fell in love with this sweet little lacquered box with an agate accent on top. Available in three sizes, it’s perfect for holding your sweetest keepsakes (or for stashing your remotes in the prettiest way).
This versatile statement decor piece would look at home with so many different styles. Instant room makeover!
These bowls are the perfect pop of color for a floating shelf or a dining room table. Or just for eating ramen in your PJs on the couch.

Outdoor Bridal Processional
While MOH R, Bridesmaid A, and I hid behind some well placed bushes, the processional started up. First, our officiant and groomsmen/co-best men A and B entered from the side.
Next came my uncle, with my mom on his arm. I’d originally planned to have my uncle walk my grandmother in and my mom walk in with my brother, but I found out about a month before the wedding that he would not be able to make it.
Green and Purple Wedding Details
All photographs are thanks to our extraordinary photographer, Amilia from Amilia Photography.
I’m interrupting your regularly scheduled programming to talk about some of my favorite details of our wedding. Detail posts have always been some of my favorite of the blog posts, and I’m so excited to share some of our special details with you all! We were able to incorporate a lot of our random ideas thanks to spending so long in the planning process. I think our venue and planning team executed our vision so perfectly, and I could not have been happier with how it all turned out!
Here’s a photo of my wedding shoes with my mom’s toe clips from her wedding day. I ended up hot gluing these bad boys on because people don’t really sell toe clips anymore. No shame.
Wedding Church Choir
Ah, music—the soul of any good party! Benjamin and I always agreed that we would hire a DJ rather than a band for our reception. This decision was made even easier when two different friends recommended Toast and Jam, a DJ company that bills itself as “the antidote to the cheesy wedding DJ.” When we met with Rachel, one of the wonderful women who works with T&J, I was instantly at ease. She totally got our preferences (a lot of late ’90s for the dance floor; a little Rat Pack, a little Vince Guaraldi for cocktail hour), and I trust her intuition when reading the room. That’s one of the things Toast and Jam emphasizes—their skill in choosing the playlist based on the vibe of the party. Add to that the amazing pun in their company name, and we were sold!
Of course, that still left the ceremony music. When Benjamin and I first started planning our liturgy, we assumed we would have the traditional church organ and cantor. But St. Clement does music exceptionally well, so when I saw that other instruments were an option, I asked Ben if he wouldn’t mind paying a little extra for a trumpet. I love trumpets—they are so associated with Christmas and images of angelic, heavenly music (art history major here) that I had to do it.

Paper Flower Garland
We spent a lot of time working out where our ceremony would take place. I wanted something simple but woodsy, with deep greens and a sense of scale. After a quick trip to the park with our photographer, we picked out this little grove as our official wedding spot.
It didn’t look like much to start, but with a few small touches, it really popped.
Much of the credit goes to our coordinator, N, for figuring out how to hang the paper flower garlands that Mr. Feather and I made. I’d originally planned to make 15–20 10-foot long strands and hang them vertically from the branches. After making eight strands, we were both fed up with spending every evening cutting, folding, and gluing.
Italian Wedding Menu
While the thought of auditioning caterers sounds super fun and delicious, I also found it really overwhelming…so it came as a relief when we found out that our reception venue was inclusive when it came to food and liquor. We selected our menu after a tasting at Salvatore’s (where I failed to take any photos—dumb) and posted it on our website for our guests’ reference.
It may ruin the “surprise,” but I highly recommend this, especially if you know you have preferences or allergies among your guests.
So, here’s what we chose: at our cocktail hour, we will have passed apps and a full bar available, including our signature cocktail—a rosemary gin fizz. We both love gin, and the rosemary simple syrup evokes that festive holiday feeling we’re going for. Salvatore’s was so nice about this—I’ll be making and bringing in the syrup myself, which I thought they might balk at, but they just told me to give them the recipe and they’ll make the drinks happen!
Nature Trail Bridal Party Photos
All these photos are thanks to the one and only Amilia, of Amilia Photography, unless otherwise noted.
After our first look, Mr. Blue Moon and I took his car back up to the reception building/bridal suite. We went in to find Mr. Blue Moon’s groomsmen, plus his dad and three of my best friends from college, all waiting for us. Since none of them (including my two younger brothers) had seen me in my dress up until this point, there was much swarming around and making a big deal out of it, which I absolutely HATE. Except it’s really hard to brush it off and pretend like this is just another casual day when you’re, you know, the bride. Definitely difficult to downplay one’s own wedding—I don’t think I did a very good job of it.

Thankfully, our photographer had us and our bridal party headed outside together in no time for some group shots.
