Good morning Pearlies!
In honor of the holiday and the fact that this wedding has been our most read thus far, today we are re-running Whitney and Landon’s BEAUTIFUL wedding by Tara Draper. If you haven’t yet seen it you are in for a treat, and if you have then you know that re-living it is awesome too! Plus there’s fireworks…Perfect. 🙂 Enjoy you guys!!!….
We have another great week of wedding beauty in store for you. Let’s start with this little gem from Tara Draper Photography. This is a rustic glam real wedding at the lovely Chula Vista resort in Wisconsin. As you know, PPB is a sucker for outdoor weddings, and this one definitely has us swooning. Oh, and did you get a look at the bride? Is she stunning or what! The whole bridal party is completely gorgeous. I bet that made Tara’s job a lot more fun photographing all of this beauty.
Every detail about his wedding has us in awe! From the beautiful pearl necklace to the bride’s cowboy boots. They even added a little pearl detail to the grooms boutonnière. We love the barrels with the rustic floral piece at the ceremony mixed with the super glam chandelier hanging overhead. The bride definitely kept each detail in mind when planning the wedding of her dreams!
These maid’s dresses are super cute and fun, perfectly matching the style of the wedding. They were all purchased online at various websites. The Bride’s Melissa Sweet gown was an awesome clearance find that she redesigned to make it all her own. The sash was a gorgeous satin ribbon from a local craft store. Whitney is definitely a super DIY’er! We just love her style!
The groom and his groomsmen looked equally as amazing as the women! The dark chocolate brown suits were a great backdrop for the blush ties and pink boutonnières.
From the Bride about the Décor: I made all of them with the help of my wonderful mom and sister! we had shopped at all the antique stores in the Madison area and collected wooden crates, silver plates, and pearls. I love treasure hunting, so it was so much fun. And now I have all of those decorations throughout my house. So that was a win win situation since I got to reuse them!
And they did a beautiful job. Each detail was eye catching and rounded out the look of this rustic glam event! The larkspur in the DIY bottle vases are just precious!
The simple elegance of the bouquets have an amazing beauty to them and the vintage styled brooches are fantastic!
The bling is to die for! And cupcakes… well, who doesn’t love cupcakes!
Ending the night with fireworks and dancing is like a dream come true! We hope you enjoyed this wedding as much as we did!
