Happy Wedding Wednesday everyone! I have a gorgeous rustic event to share with you today from Reese Moore Weddings. Rachel fell in love with the rustic, vintage and shabby chic wedding trends and decided to combine all three! Keeping most of the decor in neutral tones really let her use red to accentuate the bridesmaids and florals – which I am obsessed with! Their special day wouldn’t have been complete without their very special four-legged baby, Panza – who is just adorable in his bow tie!

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day? I think that it’s a tie between our butt-grabbing first kiss and spinning around the dance floor to “She Said Yes” by Mumford & Sons…

What is your advice to brides currently in the planning process? Don’t waste time sweating the small stuff. You can make yourself crazy with all the little details, and your guests won’t know the difference anyway…

Did you DIY anything for your wedding? Yes, yes, yes! My mother collected all of the beautiful candles that lit the space. She also sewed all of the burlap runners with the help of her friend Mary. My Aunt Debbie baked everything on our amazing dessert table. She really outdid herself! My great neighbor Jackie sewed all of the curtains for the doorways. And last but not least, my wonderful father spent hours wrapping thousands of Christmas lights all the way down the dock. A stunning picture! - Rachel
