A Lavender and Sage Wedding

Hey friends.


Happy Sunday.


I wanted to share with you all what the Lord has allowed me to do recently.


I have been blessed to style three weddings over the last several months.  Three wonderful brides who wanted to have a vintage styled wedding and reception. 


Yes, please.  I am the girl for you. 


Farmhouse Dreams and I will get you taken care of.


I mainly want to show you a few photos from the last wedding I styled because this sweet bride loves everything I love.  And, when she said she wanted to use mainly lavender, sage, and ironstone, I knew I was all in.


She likes simple elegance, so that’s what I tried to give her.




My bride is an author so I wanted to incorporate this vintage typewriter.  I tea stained a piece of paper with the words “My Beloved” typed on it.  Little did I know that my bride calls her groom by that very name.




Bundles of lavender lined the railing in the sanctuary.






The head table was filled with the beauty of lavender and sage.










Each table was decorated with a different vignette. 






I’m not sure that my bride ever knew this, but I placed the three ladders in representation of the Trinity.






My talented husband built this piece for me.  The Devoted sign was added for a more personal touch, but can be removed.


My goal in styling weddings is to make the decor as personal as I possibly can.  I want it to be a reflection of the bride and groom.


I pray from beginning to end that the Lord would lead me as I make decisions.  I ask Him to give me a creative mind and that I would please the bride and groom and make them feel very special.


I truly love what I am doing and I am thankful for the opportunities He has given me thus far.  I continue to pray for open doors to do more according to His will.


Here’s to all my brides and grooms so far.  Thank you for allowing me to share in this most special day ordained by God. 


I am honored…
