I know I am a bit late in sharing this officially here on the blog, but yes we got married on July 1st!
We found our venue last summer at an old barn. It was not filled with anything else than an old car that the owners had removed. We worked so very hard with that barn! We cleaned and cleaned, hung sheets to block of a less pretty part and much more. we were so tired and worn out that last week leading up to the wedding ;) But with that hard work, help, twinkle lights and banners hung and a few other diy´s it was just perfect!
To keep budget down we did most of everything! We bought white fabric for all the table cloths (my mom ended up sewing them!), I made all the decorations and the invitations + programs and my own flowers. We also thrifted most of the plates and glasses and have since donated everything to charity.
We had an outdoor afternoon wedding with a cake buffet where we baked about 8 different cakes and cookies ourselves and the wedding cake. We also had our familys help with a few. So, we had a big fika session with about 65 people and then had a hot dog stand later that night. It was very low key and so very us!
The actual ceremony was just outside the barn where we had the reception and it was perfect! We wanted it personal and intimate and it was, as said, perfect. My husband who has MS and is mostly in his wheelchair wanted to be able to walk down the isle and he did!
We had our pictures taken by an old photographer friend of mine and we love them so very much!
