I am in love with this VINTAGE SHABBY CHIC + BURLAP & LACE WEDDING RECEPTION submitted by Kimberly Erickson! The details here are simply gorgeous! Kim spent months & months planning this event. Every little aspect just screams perfection.

Here is what Kim had to say about planning the event– “When Jessie and I happened upon seven adorable farmhouse windows, we just knew that they would be perfect for her vintage shabby chic wedding reception.  They were our inspiration in finding a sweet, simple and meaningful way to decorate and celebrate her very special day.

Some of our favorite and most meaningful details included:

Vintage books wrapped in burlap and lace and hand stamped with personal sentiments.

Rose colored goblets, a wedding gift given to Jessie’s grandmother many years ago, were draped in pearls.

Vintage teacups, some belonging to Jessie’s great-grandmothers, were used to hold rose-topped cupcakes.

Perfectly sweet Blue Ball Mason Jars were thrifted and used to hold simple rose bouquets.

Frames were made and farmhouse windows used to display pictures of the bride and groom.  Lots and lots of pictures.  Since, of course, a picture says a thousand words :)

Wood blocks were stained, covered with vintage floral papers and vinyl lettering applied to personalize each guest table and display area.

A vintage typewriter, belonging to Jessie’s great great grandfather; a vintage silver vase, costume jewelry and the sweetest pink gloves, belonging to her great great grandmother; were used to decorate the sign in table.

And then, of course, some details were included just because they are meaningful to Jessie and Zach…namely, owls :)

And some things were included just because Jessie’s loves them…

Burlap and lace, roses {simple & muted in color}, salt water taffy–wedding favors packaged in the cutest brown and white polka dot bags, vintage clothespins wrapped in old book pages and tied with lace and buttons, little aqua blue lovebirds, silhouettes, initials, white pearled gumballs, pinwheels, personalized banners, old doors, vintage keys, Scrabble tiles and a dessert buffet of favorite pastries and pies…After all, a day celebrating the love of your life should be filled with all the things you love, don’t you think?”
