Our "Perfectly Us" Country Wedding

Well, the past few months have flown by "fast and furiously" and have been very eventful, as well.  I got remarried in August and my girls and I have been blessed with a new "small town" life.  Here are a few pictures of our wedding.  It took place on our farm and it is definitely "Perfectly Us"!!  :)
Most photos were taken by my sister, Lesa Young and her husband, Michael of Youngs Photographic Imaging (


Our farm is called "Blessed Oak Farm" for this very reason.  There is a lot of personal meaning for my husband and myself, in this old oak tree.

Our Blessed Oak before the wedding...

We had an old headboard that we attached painted barn wood to...this was at the entrance
 to our farm.

We set up hay bails for the pews and covered them with quilts of our own and borrowed from friends and family.  My girlfriends and I made all the flower arrangements ourselves over a few glasses of wine and a lot of laughs!  What great memories!  :)
I purchased all of our flowers from

All of our flowers were yellow and white...simple and sweet.  :)

This is my wedding bouquet that I made...White Daisies surrounded by yellow Solidago.  I wrapped it with lace and secured the lace with a rhinestone daisy brooch.  I loved the way it turned out!

These are the girls bridesmaids bouquets.  Yellow Daisies in the center, surrounded by White Daisies and encircled by leaves.  I wrapped the stems with burlap ribbon and secured it with a smaller rhinestone daisy brooch...they turned out so precious!  :)  You can see them better in pictures to follow...

My sweet friend Rebecca painted old barn wood signs that we used to point guests out to our farm.  We also used some around the reception...more pics to follow.

My hubby and the 3 boys rode up on his tractor and walked in to "Country Boys Can Survive".  ;)

My handsome hubby and his 3 precious boys waiting for us to walk down the aisle.

My oldest and youngest daughter walking down the aisle...they are so beautiful!

Beautiful hubby's daughter...and now mine, too!  :)

My 3 beautiful daughters!

All 4 of our girls were the bridesmaids/flower girl.  They wore cowboy boots with their cute!

Saying our wedding vows.  :)

We left the ceremony to the song "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy".. ;)

Our wonderful family...we are SO BLESSED!!

Me and my sweetie!


I love this picture of my hubby and my boots...(taken by Youngs Photographic Imaging).

The theme of our reception was vintage, casual country.  We had walls of burlap fabric, white table cloths with burlap table runners, mason jars with candles, tree slices as the base for our centerpieces and candles.  We also used several vintage pieces of furniture for different areas of the reception.  We had a "Tater Bar" and "Saloon" area (picture will be added, soon).  Our menu was Brisket, Grilled Chicken, Pinto Beans, Salad, and the now "infamous" Tater Bar.  We had Mashed Potatoes that were put in Mason jars.  The guests could top their taters with all kinds of fixins, such as, brisket/chicken, cheese, broccoli, bacon, sour cream, butter, salsa, etc.  Our guests are still talking about how much they loved the Tater Bar!  The food was catered by our dear friend Martha at The Chuck Wagon Restaurant in Velma, OK.

An old dresser served as our Candy Bar/Puppy Chow favor bar
(I don't have a picture of the completed set up, yet).
A vintage armoir held photos, candles, and inside the doors was a large flower arrangement (more pics to come...)

We used an old metal locker-type of shelf to hold the mason jars for our
Tater Bar!

We had a photo booth set up for our guests to take some fun photo ops. 

Our response cards were a little untraditional and A LOT of fun!  At the top of a 3x5 piece of cardstock, I printed "The favour of a creative reply is appreciated by July 15, 2011".  It was up to our guests to come up with a creative and fun way to let us know whether or not they would be able to make it to the was like getting a treat in my mailbox every day for a month!  :)

I had a Wishing Tree instead of a guest book.   I took manilla shipping tags and made them look
"old" by sponging brown ink around the edges.  I had a sign asking our guests to write a wish for our family on a tag and hang it on our Wishing Tree.  It was outside the barn on a table but it got too windy so we had to move it inside the is pictured on the back of this dresser.

We took most of our photos in front of our little red tractor and hay bail.  There will be many more pictures to come.............
