Mandy's Vintage Inspired, Yellow and Gray, Mason Jar Themed Wedding

Well, I wanted to share some pictures from the wedding we recently attended/took part in...
It was beautiful from start to finish.  Of course, Pinterest was a major inspiration for the wedding ideas, and why shouldn't it be? I wish I had it when I planned my wedding almost 20 years ago!

The theme was vintage-inspired, mason jars, and yellow and gray.
As she prepared, Mandy showed me each idea she came across.  She had so many ideas, I didn't think she'd accomplish all of it!  Guess what?  I was wrong.  She, along with the help of her family and friends, did it all.  It was absolutely beautiful!
Yellow flowers for the bouquets...  I loved the variety!
These little cuties are mine and they read a portion of 1 Corinthians 13
This idea was copied from pinterest.  They used a very large frame that actually was a mirror and took the mirror out.  They painted the cardboard that was already in there with chalkboard paint.  I used chalkboard markers and hand-lettered everything hand. LOL  
For info on the chalkboard markers and paint, you can read here.
The ceremony was outdoors.  Of course there was rain on this one day.  All the other days that week were super hot and super dry.  That's okay.  I read that rain on your wedding day meant that the heavens were blessing you. =)
She had mason jars hanging from the shepherd's hooks with flowers in it and then she had different sized mason jars along the aisle with candles and rocks in them.
They used mason jars for their yellow and gray sand ceremony and also had a candle in memory of the groom's mother who passed away about two years ago.  He read a touching poem in her memory. 
 I love the colors in these flowers!!
We used several Coca-Cola crates that we both had for the tables and to give that vintage feel to each setting.  She also had some vintage luggage that she picked up at some vintage stores in Colorado.  Mason jars, skeleton keys and yellow touches pulled it all together.
The CARDS banner with vintage lace and twine on it was made by me.
The groom's son, Owen, is the same age as my little Marco.  He carried this banner in and it was adorable!  The banner is made of burlap.   This also made everybody cry and was a perfect way to bring him into the ceremony.  
She came in escorted by her dad to the song "My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw.  Yes, there were tears...
Here is Naomi reading "Love is patient, love is kind..."
They wrote and read their own vows.  By the way, that super cute minister with the cute dimples is my hubby. =)  He officiated the wedding.
Then, to everyone's surprise, after they said "I do", kissed and rang the bell, the song "Yeah!", by Usher.  That cracked me up.  They all basically danced their way out.  It was great!
These were the 'place cards' with the name of the guest on the front and their table number on the back of the flags.  I loved the gray and yellow paper straws. 
Instead of a huge cake, they made little cupcakes in a jar.  Every jar was decorated with vintage lace, buttons and hand-made felt and lace flowers.  She and her mom did amazing.  They had Salted Caramel, Chai Tea and German Chocolate cupcakes.  The beautiful ruffled cake was made by our friend Lorany of Nany's Sprinkles.
Lots of Coca-Cola and vintage crates were used.  
Mason jars with rocks, candles, etc were on the tables.
Another cool idea were the table numbers.  She used old planks, vintage door knobs and skeleton keys and numbers.  They turned out great as well.  So many personal touches like this were seen throughout the wedding!
My jar. =)  These along with the cupcake jar were the favors.

Little Marco paid to dance with the beautiful bride.  
It was a beautiful wedding for our dear friend.  I wish her and Jeremy the best always and we were glad to be a small part of her big day!
