" Vintage Country Vows "

Every girl dreams of her day...

The day she takes that walk down the aisle

from her daddy's arm and says

" I do"

I was blessed so very much by my last

wedding of this season...

Brittany & James

Being a wedding planner for over twenty years

I have done my share of getting the bride

down the aisle, but this gal she stole my heart...

As the good Lord had planned he knew

this wedding would spark a deep place inside of me...

The hiding place that holds all the dreams

I have seen come true...

When Brittany shared her vision

of a vintage country wedding I knew

we were kindred spirits...

Especially when she found this old gate

door from a horse stable and wanted to use it as

part of her ceremony site...

The moment I saw her in her gown that

day I fought back my tears.

Brittany was a stunning beauty...

The most beautiful part of

this wedding was the labor of love behind it.

So many loving hands helped bring forth

Brittany's dream of a vintage country wedding.

The wedding took place at her

parents residence that we transformed into

her country style setting...

Tents were put up, bales of hay set down

and even the burlap place settings along with

wedding favors were hand made by dear friends...

This vintage truck provided by a family friend

was a perfect backdrop for

her beautiful photos

Brittany's man of her dreams James

was a true darling of a groom.

This moment with her daddy

my tears flowed like a river as

I watched them together

during their father daughter dance...

Every moment of this wedding

was filled with love

as these two families united together...

I walked away with so much love

in my heart that night

for many reasons...

Mr. Dior who was there to make sure I was

able to get through it all.

My wonderful business partner Leslee whom I am forever 

grateful for the many years we have worked

side by side during all of our events...

That she can still read my mind

and finish my sentences.

Most of all I am so very honored to

have been the wedding planner

for this amazing couple!

Brittany & James

Wishing you both a lifetime of God's

blessing for your marriage...

I leave you with our favorite

marriage verse...

Though one may be overpowered,

two can defend themselves.

A cord of three strands is not easily broken.

Ecclesiates 4 : 12

Much love to you both

Jewel Toned Vintage

When I spotted this box

of vintage ornaments at the Goodwill

I knew they would be perfect with our neutral palette...

I started adding some other elements with the jewel tones

for a festive holiday look...

I mixed in some of my coastal pieces as well...

I softened the room with lighter pastels

to add some warmth to our barn doors...

and a cozy throw...

My mama loves her Santa Claus collection

so I added this old one that was a pale 

 velvet butter yellow...

I added a starfish to his robe...

I loved the simple holiday touches

with a bit of old...

After the holidays Mr. Dior and I have decided

that we will start with a new fresh color for the

inside of our home.

We have loved the years of our warm brown

color but we have some new projects on the horizon

that we will be sharing.

For those of you who asked

this is the code for the paint in

our living room and entry way.

I will be linking up this week with

the lovelies in blogland.

Wishing all of you a very blessed

and joyous holiday season...
