We have a lovely wedding for you all today…Amy of Eat Drink Chic sent us over photos of her surprise wedding. We do love surprises! Their guests arrived at their “engagement party” only to hear of their wedding to follow. Imagine the excitement!
Amy wore her mother’s 30 year old floral dress that she wore for her own wedding in 1977. *tear*
They wanted their picnic-themed wedding to be simple, rustic, understated and relaxed, using rustic woods, vintage crates and wine barrels.
Finger sandwiches, cheese and antipasto platters, and handmade chips in boxes made from magazine paper were nestled together for guests to feast on. Their “wedding cake” was scones with jam packaged in gingham paper food trays. We’re in love with the non-traditional cake idea. yummm.
The day was absolutely perfect – it was exactly how I imagined- simple and casual but with some interesting and creative touches. Guests thought they were attending an ‘over the top’ engagement party but left realising it was a casual and understated wedding. The slight drizzle and grey skies didn’t phase me- the surprise was an absolutely perfect moment and the best part of it all was that I ended up married not only to the love of my life but my best friend.
Visit Amy’s gorgeous blog, Eat Drink Chic, to read about the rest. Congratulations you two, and thanks for sharing your day with us!
