We’re a little bit country….Wedding edition


This past weekend, I attended the wedding of my aunt and what a fun event it was! Held outdoors at our family farm in the country, every element was just as sweet as it could be. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect…one of those bright fall days, not too hot and nary a cloud in the sky.


No southern wedding would be complete with sweet tea (made by the groom!) and other yummy baked goods (courtesy of my Me-me). With an outdoor setting such as this, simple is always better. A burlap table cloth, pumpkins and other natural elements really created the scene.



Hay bales covered with quilts served as seating and the backdrop, a gorgeous yellow field. One really fun thing about this wedding was the casual feel. I guess I’ve never attended anybody’s nuptials in blue jeans before, but there is something so nice about being comfortable and leaving your high heels at home.


Yes, this is an operational outhouse…can’t say that I used it, but it made for a cute picture! I actually have another country wedding that I want to share with y’all, but I don’t want you to feel overloaded on weddings, so I’ll hold off on it for a bit. Have you ever attended a wedding in the country? Maybe you’re planning on having one! It definitely makes for a memorable experience!


  1. I love the quilts on the hay!!! And to me, burlap is as fabulous as silk! I would have loved this wedding, for sure! Best wishes to your aunt!

  2. I loved this idea. it would also work great for my party.

  3. Beautiful quilt. I love the casual family feel of this event.

  4. What fun. The quilt on the hay made me giggle. Love it.

  5. Very pretty.
    But I will admit the quilts on the bales of hay remind me of the skit we used in rush.

  6. I love the authentic wedding. Simple and elegant. Excy and I were married in the old fashioned cutting garden of his family's Victorian house built in 1863, with the reception on the wrap-around terrace and patio...we didn't send invitations just told friends and family...and it was perfect...

  7. that sounds like my kind of party. I love weddings that really reflect the people who are getting married.

  8. Okay, the outhouse was my favorite. Though I haaaated times as a child when I actually had to use one (church services at old churches, decoration days at cemeteries, etc.). I was always scared a snake would slither up through the hole in the seat. lol

  9. Sounds like your aunt is whimsical with one foot on the ground. What a beautiful setting, so natural in a time when people are dropping outrageous money on wedding days. LOVE the way her setting captures the natural beauty of the day!

  10. I don't think you could overload me on weddings! I just love 'em!

  11. it was a laid-back, fun day....i forgot to mention there was also a bonfire and we made s'mores!

    my great-grandparents (who've passed away) would have loved the idea of my aunt getting married on their land.....i can just see my granny flitting around making sure everybody had something good to eat! a sweet memory for sure!

  12. How gorgeous! It looks like a movie set and the perfect backdrop for a fall wedding.

    Best wishes to the happy couple!

  13. thank you all for the kind words and well-wishes! i'll pass them along to my aunt! xoxo

  14. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yours is precious! Just sgned up to be your newest follower! Btw those desserts look amazing!

  15. Love all the pictures, but ESPECIALLY the outhouse! So cute, for such a yucky experience. Thanks for the comment on my blog too by the way. :)

  16. firstly, "nary" is spelled nairy, secondly, "Me-me" is spelled mimi, just thought I'd lovingly correct you, love philly
