A Very Country Wedding.......

Along with my husband turning the big 3-0 this month, another big event for our family took place in the month of August.  On August, 11, Matt and I drove an hour south to watch my baby brother get married.

I only had my I-phone with me to take pictures, but I wanted to share of a few pics of their special day on my blog.

My mother, though very happy for him, had a hard time…..

….. watching her baby…..

….the youngest of eight, officially leave the nest and get out on his own.

It was a very country wedding filled with barns, hay bails, wagon wheels, lots of country music and cowboy décor.

Even the bride came in on a tractor….

….wearing a pair of cowgirl boots under her dress.  Her flower girls came down the aisle in cowgirl boots as well.

Instead of a unity candle, they stuck with their country theme and tied twain together.

And even the wine glasses were mason jars filled with sweet tea.

I understand that not everyone dreams of a country wedding.  Everyone is different, and that’s the beauty of it.  Some prefer church weddings.  Some prefer beach weddings.  Some prefer Vegas.  I think back to my own wedding that was in a garden and remember that I walked down the aisle barefoot.  The great thing about weddings is that they can be a beautiful reflection of the bride and groom, and my brother’s wedding reflected their personalities perfectly.  If you know someone planning a country wedding, I hope some of these ideas help.

I wish my brother and new sister-in-law the best of luck in their new lives together.
