A Real Wedding Video

April 19, '11 by Maggie Lord

I was getting ready to show off the beautiful wedding photographs from this wedding which took place in Lake Martin, Alabama when I found the wedding video over at A Bryan Photography and thought it was just too cute not to show. I love everything about this video and I think you will too! Pay close attention to the church (amazing venue) and the bridesmaid's dresses....both are stunning! Make sure you make the video full screen and you have your speaks turned adds to the beauty of this video.

Flat Out Cute

April 18, '11 by Maggie Lord

 Many times a rustic wedding takes place in a venue that does not lend itself to high heels so I have put together some choices for cute wedding flats. These are great options to change into after the walk down the isle or to wear the entire day! All of these great flats can be found here along with many more.

Real Wedding: Moose, WY

April 15, '11 by Maggie Lord

 I found this beautiful and oh so Whispering Pines type of wedding over at Martha Stewart Weddings. This wedding has a great western feel without sacrificing any of the elegance you want for your wedding day.


How beautiful is this Chapel... I mean could you find a more rustic place to get married? This Chapel is in Grand Teton National Park!


I LOVE the way the food is displayed at this wedding... has a very casual and picnic type of feel to it.

Another Blackberry Farm Wedding

April 13, '11 by Maggie Lord

 I have found another amazing wedding which took place at Blackberry Farm in Tennessee. This wedding is just as gergous as the one I showed off before from this venue so my suggestion to any bride looking to have an elegant rustic wedding would be to check out this farm first!

Real Wedding: The Barn at Wesleyan Hills

April 07, '11 by Maggie Lord

 Today's real wedding took place not too far away from where Whispering Pines is located in Connecticut in The Barn at Wesleyan Hills. This wedding has a real magical feel to it with the string lights and the simple yet elegant decor. I love the woodsy feel brought to life by the flowers and centerpieces all the while keeping some of the traditional wedding beauty.

Birch Signs

April 04, '11 by Maggie Lord

 I have some wonderful handmade birch signs to show off today which I think would look amazing at a rustic wedding. These signs are made in the great state of Maine and can be personalized for your big day. Here are some great sayings that I think would look cool on these signs: Wedding, Reception, I Do, Maggie + Jon, Dancing, Party, Just Married or anything else that would add something special to your day.

Here is a great example of a fun sign that I saw from a wedding a few years back which the bride's father made- just an example to get your thinking about what YOUR sign should say.

Rustic Barn Location

March 31, '11 by Maggie Lord

 Thanks to another one of our fans on Facebook I have a great rustic wedding location suggestion for you. This one today is located only 2 1/2 hours from New York City in the town of Dallas, Pennsylvania. Friedman Farm is a rustic brides dream location since it has nothing to offer but one big old barn so you would get to design the look of your wedding from top to bottom. How great is this, as part of the wedding package you get to rent the barn for the ENTIRE WEEK so you can spend the time needed to decorate the space.

Here are several different weddings that have been held at the barn just to give you an idea of how this great location could be used. LOVE the use of the chandelier.


I love this wedding shot! The use of the white fabric is amazing...adds a dramatic look but keeps things simple. If I was going to have a barn wedding I would be using this picture as my inspiration and guide.

Rustic Wood Heart 

Great to hang around your ceremony or reception site or can be used as place cards by adding a tag with your guest name on each one. I can't stop thinking of fun ways to use these hearts.

Rustic style Metal Hearts

These hearts have a truly unique look about them and add a cute charm factor. Great favors, decorations or place cards.

This bride chose purple as her main wedding color and carried it out all the way through the flower. I know purple flowers may not be the first color that comes to mind when planning your wedding but look how great it can be with these photos below.

A Few of My Favorite J.Crew Dresses

March 18, '11 by Maggie Lord

 I really like some of the new wedding dresses that J.Crew is showing and so I picked a few of my favorites to show off today. There is something about the simplicity of these dresses yet they all look perfectly elegant and sophisticated. The other thing that I love about these dresses is that they seem to fit any location or style wedding you are having. It seems like J.Crew has a silhouette for every type of affair whether you are looking for a dress with a full skirt for looking for a more sleek look you can find it!
