An Outdoor Country Glam Wedding

It was the perfect Fall Saturday afternoon for a wedding!  The sun was shining.  Not a cloud in the sky! There couldn't have been a more beautiful wedding day for this outdoor country wedding of Jenny + Kenny!

Jenny has been a best friend to me since Kindergarten!  It was such a special day to help her prepare for the wedding and to stand by her side on the day she married her best friend!

I was honored to help her with her wedding decor for the event.  And of course I loved helping pulling it all together!  I am humbled that jenny asked me for so much advice when it came to her wedding decor.  She had a vision of this beautiful outdoor country glam wedding and we made it happen!

From the cowboy boots to the yellow sunflowers, to all the diamonds, jewels and lace, and country touches of hay bales and burlap, everything was perfect!

I had hours and hours of time in all the chalk board signs I made for Jenny + Kenny but they looked awesome!  I used chalk markers to get a more precise, clean edge to all of the hand lettering.  You can find these at craft stores such as Michael's or Hobby Lobby.  I used varying thicknesses of markers depending on what I was writing.  These will erase, but they are a lot harder to erase from a chalkboard or in our case most of the signs were chalk paint.  I will warn you that once you erase the chalk markers they most likely will have a slight imprint on the chalk paint that won't be able to be erased.  But you can always just add a layer of chalk paint again for a clean slate.  I had a lot of fun doing these for her!

Can't forget to show my handsome date!!

  1. 1. Your hair looked GREAT! Good job!!
    2. Did you end up getting new makeup? If so, I'm dying to know what!
    3. YOU ARE SOOOO TALENTED. I think when I grow up I want to be you. Gorgeous wedding. Amazing touches. I adore the whole theme!!!

    1. THANKS!!! I am happy I went simple with the hair! haha! I was a little stressed about it! I did! I ended up getting Tarte foundation and concealer! Love it! And I did Kelly's Black Cherry lipstick that seriously took the whole look to the next level! Funny how lipstick can do that! HAHA! You're funny! It was a beautiful wedding!

  2. Planning for a wedding seems easy but it is quite difficult to find the right venues. The manager at Chicago Wedding Venues was so wonderful, personable, and responsive. We received the best possible service on our wedding day.


I love hearing comments, questions, and suggestions! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts!
