I have recently discovered I may have a new obsession – bridal faux fur wraps. I unwittingly scheduled two real weddings back-to-back featuring beautiful brides in equally beautiful wraps. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing, mind you. And I suppose ’tis the season for warm winter wraps!
Chris and Carrie had a beautiful fall wedding at their church in Bakersfield, CA. The church was decorated with lit up Christmas trees and wreaths that made for a beautiful ceremony backdrop (and you can’t beat free decor). The reception hall had a nice cozy fireplace, perfect ambiance for a fall wedding. With the help of their family and friends, the couple put together all their table decor, turning books into little floral pots and pairing them with simple roses in vintage vases.
Cupcakes, which were baked by family and friends, were displayed on DIY cake stands made from vintage plates and glasses.
The groom had custom ties made through Etsy for himself and his groomsmen. At first glance they just look like paisleys … but look closer! I think these are the greatest ties I’ve ever seen!
Congrats Carrie and Chris!
