Pretty words

I love the idea of decorating with great sayings presented in a beautiful way.

And these wall/mirror decals from Shanna Murray certainly fit the bill. I love how she calls them “tidings”

This made me smile, since Luke often says…

Definite wedding decor potential…

We heart High Falls

Etsy.com has become an invaluable source for all things wedding. From custom hair piece to vintage ball jars and milk glass, there are endless possibilities for great additions to the day.

While browsing etsy, I came across a seller that takes vintage maps and embroiders over them to create a great little art piece. I emailed to ask if by any chance she had a map that showed our wedding location of High Falls, NY. She did!! And voila…

A big thanks to JoAnn for making this for us! Be sure to check out her shop. For now, it sits on our bookshelf but I think I’m going to bring the little guy to the wedding, maybe display it on our table or something.

In more High Falls news…Luke and I are taking a trip up there this weekend. I’m so excited to explore the area and find great local recommendation to give our guests. We’re also meeting with our florist, potential caterer and taking another tour around Shadow Lawn. I’m really looking forward to a nice weekend in the country!

Alphabet Sparklers

I found this website that sells “ground” alphabet sparklers!  I’m assuming ground sparkler means that you stick them into the ground instead of holding them, right?  I think they will make a great addition to the bonfire atmosphere.  The wedding-esque word possibilities are endless. They also have hearts and stars!

Barn Decor

I love the beautiful red barn at Shadow Lawn.  But one thing I want to be careful of is to not go in the rustic farm theme direction of decorating.  That just doesn’t say Amanda and Luke to me.  Instead, I’d like to use the raw space for beautiful lighting, soft colors and just an overall vintage chic feel.

Curtains for the barn!  Now you won’t find any hay at our wedding but I love the flowing white fabric welcoming you into the space.

This next one is perfect. It absolutely says “vintage chic in the woods”

How simple and beautiful are these hanging vintage jars with flowers and lights?  A definite DIY decor option.   The whole wedding where I found this picture is stunning.  I’m taking a lot of inspiration from it.
