What’s a bride to do when all she wants to do is elope, but knows she can’t? For Ann, the answer was simple — host a wedding that was, “just plain us,” she told Style Me Pretty.
The couple chose to have a backyard wedding at a relative’s home in Cullman, Alabama. However, this wedding did backyard in the most beautiful way. Ann emphasized the beauty of the outdoor setting with simple furniture and bold flower arrangements. The colors included oranges, deep purples and jewel-tone reds, perfect for this October affair.
Ann and Ken made their dreams come true with simplicity, playing off the existing features of the home and backyard where the wedding took place. The guests were welcomed by rolling hills, lush tress and incredible flower arrangements.
The ceremony took place under a floral arch as guests sat in simple, classic wooden chairs. They watched the two become one as dusk set in — truly a magical sight.
The party continued in an elegant tent arranged by a pond. Tables were set with taupe linens and flower arrangements in varying vessels — a personalized tough. A bluegrass band serenaded the crowd as they snacked on Southern classics and danced the night away. The entire occasion ended in a fireworks display, wowing the guests. Ann said of her wedding, “Our wedding was so many things, but if I had to distill it to just a few words they would be: fun, warm and JUST PLAIN US.”
We wish Ann and Ken all the best as they live happily ever after. We love the inspiration they set for a down home wedding done right, all classic touches that pulled from nature.
