Celebrating A Wedding

Very vintage and refurbished Clayburn School, now repurposed into a hall to community events was the venue for D and G's wedding celebrations.

A peek at the original building.

and then.... wedding details.

Bridal Bouquets

Brides choice was none of the guests were to be identified (so I used iphoto feature to blur any faces that did show). 

This shows half of the room. Rest of tables and buffet are out of sight. Wonderful windows and original blackboards and flooring.

Memory book with turquoise Buddy L (groom searched and found the truck) and dahlias. The turquoise binder has pages, each with a photo of each guest (sent to bride earlier) and space to write a message.

Photo frames and polaroid pictures of guests. The photo frame had handles attached to the back on each side so guests could choose their pose. By the end of the evening the wired frame was full of photos. Bride will be hanging the photo frame on their wall at home.

Dahlias from private gardens and Ferncliff Gardens.

Waiting for bride and groom

Didn't add the buffet tables because too many guests were in line. Each table had 'game/puzzle/notepads and chocolates as well as either Cranberry and Alfalfa honey with the bride and groom names and the date of their wedding as favours. Scrabble tiles for each guest as place cards.

What I didn't show was the wedding, the photo ops with bride and groom and guests, two sweet and charming tiny children twirling and dancing, the guests enjoying their dinner, the family groupings for photos, the guests visiting. A lovely late afternoon and evening wedding celebration.

What you couldn't hear was the music the bride chose for each part of the afternoon and evening. She matched the music to each portion of their wedding day (the dancing children happened after the meal). Great selections and very personalized.

Thank you for visiting.

  1. Hi Joy,

    You sure found a unique blue today. What a creative wedding. I love the autumn colored flowers in the jars, and of course, I love that darling blue truck by the blue sign-in book.

    The photo idea is super. New brides always have several empty walls to decorate. This settles that decorating problem!

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  2. Everything looks lovely.

    My son just got engaged and we went with the kids on Saturday to check out a few venues. Boy, I didn't realize all the issues in just finding a site. But, I am looking forward to working with my DIL to be to make decorations.

  3. It looks like a small but well planned country wedding. All the bouquets of flowers are pretty and using old coke bottles for single stems seems to tie in with the antique truck.
    Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  13. Joy, How very charming that the wedding was at the school. I love the truck for sure. My grandson and his bride , married last month on the 12th in Utah....did the same wire picture frame for guest photos. Such a great idea. Blessings to the newly weds. xoxo,Susie
