The summer of 2010 was a summer of weddings in our house..my son and daughter were both married and we attended 3 other weddings — all unique in their own way. I will be sharing DIY photos and ideas from them all over the next couple weeks. First off…rehearsal dinner for my son’s wedding. My son and daughter-in-law selected this venue as both families have celebrated special occasions here over the years ..the exposed brick was just an added bonus when we selected this room for our evening! It is in a old warehouse type building-very vintage…but the rooms needed a little something…..I spent several hours at the facility taking notes and pictures the weeks leading up to the event…decided vintage was the theme and started organizing my old vases and blue ball canning jars. I decided we would do all wild flowers from our home and I began doing test runs with the vases and flowers…..a must!
I also started purchasing vintage frames to antique and make blackboards to place throughout the room…..and couple days before the event–it happened–our sunflowers started to open! I was thrilled the morning of the rehearsal dinner as my husband and I collected wild flowers and sunflowers and transported them to the room..in 5 gallon buckets…LOTS of 5 gallon buckets! Here we are upon arrival—
