Winter Wedding

Our daughter was married last Saturday. 12-13-14! And it was the most awesome day ever.

When they set the date, she and her fiance decided that they wanted a winter theme, without it being "Christmasy." So we set out to accomplish that. A whole heck of a lot went into it, but it was worth it.

We started with this:

and this:

and my smart hubby worked up this:

From there we purchased 300 yards of white gossamer, 100 yards of gold gossamer, and about one dozen second-hand Christmas trees. Not to mention a giant fan cover, loads of heavy gauge wire, tablecloths, table runners and other various things. We rented black lanterns and borrowed lots of white lights.

And we turned all of that (and more) into this:

After the wedding luncheon, we switched things up a little and added some lights to the center of the canopy, like this:

We were able to pretty much transform the space, and our daughter and son-in-law were really happy with how it turned out. Much thanks to family and friends of both the bride and groom for helping us pull it off! 

Colors: evergreen, blush, gold and cranberry
Centerpieces: wood rounds, evergreen of various types, blush roses, berries and cedar roses
Chair sashes: 1 1/2 yds of gold gossamer
