~TLC's Four weddings airs tonight~

Do you remember this past summer when I had the opportunity to work with the Four Weddings tv show?
Well tonight is the night that that episode airs, hope you can watch!
Here is a few sneak peaks from the episode:

The bride and groom~
Jenni and Ted.



I made the sign below for the giant fireplace mantle at Crystal Lake Lodge. The letters were purchased from here.


In keeping with the rustic feel of the lodge, and due to the fact that the budget for decor was next to nothing, I decorated very simple with natural elements.
I brought in round logs from my neighbors wood pile and topped them with mason jars filled with fresh flowers. I had dozens of roses donated by Pro Sports Club {thank you!} and the rest came from our garden, neighbors gardens, etc. To add a little flair, I tied scrap lace around a few of the mason jars. And of course candles, lots of candles.



They had a live band which I thought was pretty cool.



The bride and groom gave me these lanterns to use on the tables. I worked them in with a giant centerpiece of fresh flowers in vintage crates. I added pieces of slate to the crates, and each one said a different word written out in chalk. I made runners by ripping down large vintage lace tablecloths.


These gorgeous pillows were donated by my friend Kendra. You can find them here.


When you have such a small budget, donations are key! This custom print was donated as well. To see more, click here.


Another vintage crate with flowers, just outside the entrance to the lodge.


This Mr. and Mrs. sign was made by my niece. Check out her etsy shop here.




The bride and groom do not drink, so instead of alcohol they hired a barista to come in with his espresso cart. We love our coffee here in Seattle!


About a month before the wedding I found a huge box full of these carved logs at a garage sale! I could not believe my luck!
We used them everywhere throughout the lodge.



At each place setting I created these little favors for the guests. I got the brown bags at Michaels, and glued on lace trim that I found at yet another garage sale.
The "perfect blend" stickers were created by Paper Moon Shop and the bags are filled with chocolate covered espresso beans donated by Dillano's coffee.





The wedding cake as well as all the other desserts were donated by my good friend Margo of Pinkabella Cupcakes. The cake topper is hand made and was loaned to us from Over The Top Studios.



The food was amazing, catered by my friend Leigh of Alexas Cafe and Catering.





It was a beautifully sunny day, so we had some outdoor seating lakeside.


I created a photo booth area in a corner of the lodge. I hung a vintage frame, made a photo booth sign on some old pallet wood and hung a darling scrap fabric garland my mom made.



And now, for a bunch of random wedding photos…….






As the wedding was coming to a close, a hot air balloon floated by overhead.
Picture perfect.



The "other 3 brides"


Be sure to watch tonight, Four Weddings on TLC airs at 10 pm EST, 7 pm for my friends that live around here.

I just read through the details of the beautiful wedding, and quickly rushed to the TV to catch the episode! And was immediately reminded why I don't care for that show...all your lovely details, all the gracious donations, the beauty of the day, couple, and venue done up! All seemed ignored by the other brides, their comments and votes. My heart just hurt for that lovely wedding. You and yours did an amazing job! It was picturesque, and I was thoroughly impressed.
