Sarah and John - Oh Happy Day!

I recently helped decorate Sarah and John's wedding at Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak brook - this venue is as pretty as they come!!!  This tudor revival style estate is full of character and sits on tons of acres of woods!  Sarah has such an amazing style (which made working with her and her mother so much fun). The bride and groom's goal was to make their special day casual and relaxed!  
Here are a few pictures!

 We decorated with vintage-inspired elements that looked as though they were an original part of the venue.


Sarah thought of every detail! 
Guests felt so special and welcomed because of her personal touches!






We filled the shelves with tons of vintage items!  The photos are of Sarah and John's family - soooo cute!!  Guests were able to use this typewriter to leave them a message.



Put your dancing shoes on...

I painted this globe with chalkboard paint - it says, "there's no place we'd rather be."
(Thanks Erin for writing this for me - my handwriting is terrible!)
I covered this vintage chair with different styles of doilies!


Head Table...


Each guest table looked a little different!





All of the sweets were made by family!





Happy Monday!!

This really looks like a happy time...great job on all the special touches that make this so wonderfully appealing. The vintage typewriter for guests to use to leave messages was beyond brilliant!

These wedding details are so sweet - you did a beautiful job! I just wanted to share that I featured this on my blog today - I Love Farm Weddings (with proper credit of course). Here's the link: http://www.ilovefarmweddings.com/2012/01/31/farm-inspiration-burlap-kraft-paper-floral-details/

Thanks for all the inspiration!

Did you personalize your napkins yourself or did you have them done by someone else? I, too, am wanting to add a lot of personal touches to my August wedding.

Thank you!

@Sheryll - yes I utilized a site calle foryourparty.com to customize my napkins! They are great, a good price, and you can type your own custom phrase or monogram (or use one of their pictures). Pick your font, font color, napkin color, and finish...they came in the mail really quickly too! Thanks for asking - hope it's helpful! Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

-Sarah
