Jenny and Jeff, Sonoma Part III

The reception tables were covered in taupe linens and the centerpieces were loose arrangements in mason jars and milk glass of roses, dahlias, hypericum, stock, queen anne's lace, dusty miller and lisianthus accented with wild turkey feathers collected on the ranch and placed on vintage lace doilies.

The napkins were held with craft paper napkin rings and the favors were small vintage fabric covered pots of local honey.

Cafe lights strung from old farm tools supported in hay bales and covered with bougainvillea set the mood and created a cozy atmosphere despite warnings from the father of the bride not to wander off for fear of mountain lions. We filled a wheelbarrow to the brim with flowers and vintage lace-covered saddles and antique white candelabras decorated the cocktail patio and dance floor inside the house. White Mexican cutout flags personalized with the bride and groom's names added a nice touch.

Guests found their table assignments from escort cards displayed on wire between hundreds of pictures of Jenny and Jeff's families and large arrangements of flowers (with olive branches and persimmons picked from the ranch) in vintage silver and milk glass graced the buffet of BBQ chicken, mac and cheese, corn bread and salad.

Guests finished off the evening salsa dancing in the candlelit living room. It was a magical night!

I love love love the wheelbarrow idea! I can't wait to incorporate the idea at my own wedding next summer. Thanks for sharing, Rachel. Your work is beautiful!
