{wedding obsessed} — a small town wedding

Two years after my own wedding, I am still completely obsessed with weddings! I love the planning, the dresses, the food, the cake, the tears, the speeches, the love and of course, every do-it-yourself detail!

Today I’m bringing you a wedding that is near and dear to my heart—my cousin Erin’s small-town wedding to her honey Eric! Towards the end you will find a diy quick tutorial on creating a monogram that can be suspended from the ceiling for a fun pop above the head table or for a backdrop to a dessert table at any gathering, not just weddings.

Let’s start with a little something blue…

This photo of the guys in a forest is one of the most majestic manly shots I’ve seen.  Love it!

And now for a few bright and blingin’ details!

The chalkboard shot is so perfect—every church in my hometown has a big chalkboard—old school and yet classic! The cupcakes were delish! And below, you can’t have a small-town wedding without a nice cheap beer!

Great photo of the head table with my Uncle Chuck offering a hilarious toast!

And the happy couple… I had to share a few shots. I love all of them!

Lastly… the monogram I promised.

To make the suspended monogram, purchase cardboard letters of your choice from JoAnn Fabrics. Then simply spray paint them your favorite color (you can find metallic and glitter spray paints). Erin chose to spray paint them black and then brushed on glitter paint to add the bling factor. She loved the silver glitter and thought it added the most pop. She also glued on sequins and inexpensive crystals for texture. Simple. Cheap. Wow!
