Congratulations, Chrissie and Andy! What a beautiful day!
Chrissie’s Bride Diaries
What was your most dreamlike moment?
The doors opening for the ceremony and walking down the aisle.
Did you include any sentimental items in your decor or details?
A Garden Party included my grandfather’s hankerchief and a pin with a picture of my grandpop and I. He passed right after we got engaged, so it meant a lot to me to include him in our details.
For my wedding decor, my theme was Earth Day with copper, light pastel colors, white, and greenery. It was on my family’s farm behind the tiny cabin that my dad built, which is also where we got engaged and moved into after the wedding.
In order for the guests to find their tables, they had to find a photo of themselves and their table herb or flower name was on the back. With the earth day wedding, the centerpieces were either an herb in white terra cotta pots or flowers in copper spray-painted bottles that I painted.
My bridal party was driven down to the ceremony by my dad in his tractor, which was pulling the bridal party in the hay wagon. My dad made a wood wall with 2 old windows and 2 old doors as the entrance. He also built the wood frame behind where we got married, which was then behind the sweetheart table. My husband’s aunt made us a personalized sign from her welding shop in Arizona.
Our cake was on a wooden spool from the farm and made in our bakery at the farm market. We baked our own cookies for desserts. And had delicious ice cream sandwiches. Our vegetables were grown on the farm and used in the main menu. We froze strawberries to add to each champagne glass.
Because it rained, we had to move the ceremony inside. But it was beautiful and I am so happy the way it turned out!
What was your favorite decor detail from your wedding day?
My DIY centerpieces with the herbs or flowers. It was perfect!
We always try to bring your floral dreams to life…did we succeed? In what ways? Is there any room for improvement?
A Garden Party did an amazing job adding succulents, light pastels, greenery, and providing the single flowers for the copper-painted bottles. It was picture perfect!
