A Prairie Style Wedding - Part I

Hello everyone!

Last night my husband and I attended a beautiful wedding.  It was for his cousin's son.  They had the most charming wedding reception I've seen in a long time.  I thought I would share some pics with you so you could enjoy it too.

The wedding took place in a church, but the reception was held in a train depot.  It was so quaint and charming.  It was decorated to look like it was plucked right out of the pages of a Shabby Chic Prairie Style Book.  

First, meet the cute couple.


This was part of a picture that the guests signed around upon entering. 


There was a spot for gifts on the other side of the door.


  There were tables reserved for the family with fresh flowers and candles.


But the MOST beautiful area was for the wedding party!




Fresh flowers and small votive candles were everywhere.  So romantic!






There was an open bar.


And a DJ.


People were walking around offering hors d'oeuvres before dinner as well.


I spied the wedding cake over in the corner!


It was placed on top of an old suitcase!


The food was waiting for us in chafing dishes.




Well there is just so much more to share!   You have to see the beautiful bride and groom dancing to their wedding song, All of Me, by John Legend!  Click HERE to listen to it.

Part 2 coming up next!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Kelly! Oh, what a beautiful wedding - so creative and unusual! Someone had their thinking cap on. The wedding couple is just darling too. I'll be looking forward to more.
I hope you're doing okay as I haven't been in to see you in a while.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day and be a sweetie,
