Tuesdays Tour. . .Wadley Farm and a Wedding

Wadley’s Farm is located about 20 minutes from where I live.  It’s in the area where I grew up.

What once was a working farm is now a quaint and beautiful reception center.

We lived in our previous home for 22 years.  It’s where we raised all of our children and watched many neighbor kids grow up.

Lexi was the little girl across the street.  Imagine my delight when her mother called and wanted to borrow a few of my vintage treasures for the reception.  According to both Lexi and her mother she got her love of vintage from playing in our playhouse.  You see, I had furnished the old Pioneer home turned playhouse with vintage finds.

Not only does she have a love for vintage, but she also has a love for travel.  A love developed by her parents.  So naturally the theme for her wedding was “Vintage Travel”.

This garland draped across a gate was filled with cute childhood drawings, photos, and trinkets she’d picked up in her travels.  Notice her gorgeous wedding gown?  Inspired by one she saw in Scotland.  She had it made and used lots of vintage lace.  The front was fabulous as well.  So sad that I didn’t get a photo.  These were all taken with my friends phone.

Have you ever heard of ‘Dandelion wishes’?  Well, here’s a jar full.

There were so many other wonderful things that I didn’t get a picture of, but this gives you an idea of what a fun wedding theme this was.

Wishing the newlyweds lots of love and traveling adventures together!

hugs,

Jann

I love homemade weddings. How sweet that her love of vintage stemmed from you and her childhood days, and that you could be a part of her most memorable occasion in her life. Beautiful setting too, Jann.

Hi Jann, what a wonderful theme for a wedding. Loved all your pics sharing the details. The dandelion wishes jar is fabulous. Love the garland banner on the fence. Such great ideas.
How special her love of vintage was inspired by you growing up. How precious is that to know.

Thank you for stopping by my spotlight feature at Kris's. Your visit and comment was special to me.
Happy September!!

So unique and individualized! Maybe you can start doing this sort of thing on the side for money--to buy more vintage!!!

So creative for a wedding! I did similar centerpieces for a ladies retreat. Weddings like that are just fun!

Vintage accents lend themselves so nicely to romantic weddings, and this particular wedding did not disappoint! Very pretty and well done.

This is one of the most unique wedding reception decorations I've ever seen.
I bet the guest will be talking about this for ages!
