We recently had the privilege of a small involvement in what I would call a Pinterest Perfect Fairytale Wedding. The bride spent a year pinning and planning to make her wedding a Fairytale come true. She certainly succeeded in what I would call the most Romantic Farm Wedding of all time!
The wedding took place adjacent to a cornfield at the family’s dairy farm and no detail was left undone. We made several of the backdrops and I will show the pins that were pinned for us before we created the look for the Pinterest Perfect Fairytale Wedding. My husband is a Finish Carpenter and I am a Professional Seamstress/Florist. We love to get a picture and then use it as inspiration for the project.
You might think that hanging 60 individual little jars with 60 battery operated tea lights from a 12 ft branch was easy. It turned out to be a three-man job. The Pinterest Pin we used for inspiration.
A picture of all the little jars lit in the dark didn’t get taken but you can get the idea from this one we used as our example. There were 60 of them spread out over three branches 5 feet apart 12 ft from the ground. You can find the link to the picture HERE
Here Comes the Bride
Before I go any further, I want you to see the beautiful bride as she arrives in her Cinderella Horse Drawn Carriage.
Every little girl’s dream wedding for sure!
I loved this door set up as soon as I saw it and I couldn’t wait to get to it. A bit of a challenge to find 2 old doors exactly the same size but we have a stash of doors. [I love Vintage doors] The real challenge was to get the finish exactly the same on two doors and remove 4-8 coats of paint because the finish was to be close to the one in the picture.

She didn’t want the burlap or the scripture on the barn boards so we used a cedar garland as a swag. It took all of a week to get the doors stripped down by hand removing at least 10 layers of paint! Then we used our Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint to create the finish as close to the one pictured as possible. The flower wreath are a bit more grand then the one in the picture we copied but when you are having a wedding in the middle of a field, you can go big!!
During the ceremony:
After the ceremony when the chairs were removed.
Being an avid gardener, I’ve seen lots of arbors but this one was a bit tricky to make. You can find this Pinterest Pin HERE.
We used 3 vintage ladders to make the arbor and it had to be tall enough and wide enough to work in the huge open space so that meant adding on to ladders, staking them in the ground and figuring out how to attach a curtain rod for the full length linen curtains. The bride didn’t want any roses just flowers in the color of her wedding, peach and cream.
I think we were able to give her the look and what a handsome couple under that arbor.
Centerpieces and Table Numbers
The centerpieces  and table numbers were probably the most fun thing to make. Here is the Pinterest Pin we used for inspiration. The bride wanted the boxes stained and various sizes and woods. You can find the links for the below pictures HERE
Here are our boxes and table numbers:
Lots of table Numbers and lots of flower boxes!
Before I close this post, here are a couple of picture from the wedding that were my favorites:
Many of these pictures were taken by others at the wedding. The wedding photographer was Photography by Kimberly we’ve used our watermark to protect this blog post.
The flower tie-backs are made from bouquet holders and attached to the ladder with wire.
Love this “The Littles”
