Real Wedding: Aimee + Colin vol. II

It was so much fun working with Aimee to come up the theme and fun details for their rustic ranch wedding. She somewhat combined aspects from these two shoots, into one for her special day. Fresh peaches, canned peaches, old shutters, homemade table runners, and wildflowers lined the long banquet tables. All place settings were set with vintage silverware, and mix matched china. It was so beautiful...I have to include so many photos to show the variation of the tables!

On the corner of every gold chivari chair was a handmade place card with the guests name. No detail went unnoticed! The variety of color everywhere was completely stunning! The Floral Lab did such a beautiful job with the variety of flowers.

They made cute jars of homemade peach jam for each guest to take home! During the cocktail hour, guests sipped Shirley Temples or Sweet Tea out of mason jars with homemade "S" stir sticks.They were able to explored the ranch, play lawn games, and have their photo taken in a fun outdoor photo booth and chalkboard sign. Aimee added a orange sweater to her outfit after the wedding, and it was such a fun touch!

In lieu of a guest book, Aimee and Colin brought a large slap of wood for guests to sign, and Aimee will turn that into a coat rack with darling Anthropologie knobs. I loved this idea, and it is a fun memento to keep in their new house for years to come.
In cased you missed the trailer 4120 Weddings did, here it is again. I've watched it several times now, and love everything about it. Those guys sure have talent!

The dessert table gave off a ranch vibe with the fresh peach and apple pies, homemade cookies, and a cake! I love this last photo, as it completely reveals their spunky personalities!

Mr. and Mrs. Slade, we are so very thankful you allowed us to spend time with you, planning for your special wedding. We enjoyed every minute we were able to share ideas, the joys of marriage, and learn about you both. Together, you are a beautiful and incredible couple. We are blessed by your love, and are looking forward to wathcing your marraige grow and blossom. We love you!

Real Wedding: Aimee + Colin vol. I

Aimee + Colin's wedding was beyond words, beautiful. Miss Aimee was one of those dream brides to work with. The details were endless, and the amount of love that these two poured into their day was perfection. They are the type of couple that everyone wants to be around because their joy and outlook on life is FUN and pure. Together, it's just that much better.

Condor's Nest Ranch was the perfect location for their weekend celebration! The venue is insanely cool with tractors, farm animals, a decked out green house, sprawling green hills for miles and miles....A perfect place for Aimee + Colin to be married.

It was so difficult to choose photos for a blog post, so these two features will be jam packed with goodness from Colleen Sherman Photography. She's pretty much incredible!

Aimee's beautiful, colorful bouquet done by The Floral Lab. And check out that hair piece! It's gorgeous!!!

There is something stunning about these two photos, above and below. Aimee is an incredibly beautiful woman, and on her wedding day, she glowed x10000.

Could the bridesmaids be ANY cuter? Nope. They wore Anthropologie dresses, yellow shoes, and their handmade sashes were each a different patterned color, and coordinated with the guys homemade boutonnieres. Ad-orable.

Colin, looking all sharp and suave. Love this photo of can see the excitement in those eyes!
One of THE coolest parts of their wedding...the wood structure made out of old wood & vintage windows. It was incredible and framed their ceremony backdrop perfectly. Colin and his Dad made this THEMSELVES. Talk about a DIY groom!

Posh Paperie's custom invites for Aimee & Colin..and the programs were amazing. Those ladies know how to set the theme, don't they!?

The new...Mr. and Mrs. Slade!!!
