Our wedding is going to be at a lovely barn, under huge cottonwood trees, and our invitations had a big tree on them. So today I stumbled across this on Martha's web-page. Forest wedding?? Perfect!
I mean, LOOK at these cakes, will ya?? Look at those little birds!! Ack!
Holy mother of fiddle-head ferns. And those tiny mushrooms!! Love, love, love it.
Other ideas I just found on her website that I love:
The place settings are way too formal for us, and I hate the colors (too cold) but I love the simple vases with the twigs and birds. Imagine this with an orange linen table runner, clear vases and stones scattered along (see below). Yep.
I love the beautiful simplicity of the smooth, dark stones scattered along a table-runner with candles....That is very, very ME.
Look at this lovely bamboo huppa:
In traditional Jewish ceremonies, the bride and groom are married under a huppa, which is kind of a tent or trellis that they stand under. This one is made of bamboo poles and an embroidered bed-spread. Totally up my alley. I believe our ceremony is going to be outside, since hopefully the weather will be lovely in mid-September. We can do this!
And this as the serving table?
Yep, I just found all sorts of inspiration....It's going to be beautiful. Simple and beautiful.
