Kristien and Caleb's Wedding: Mason Jars, Scots-Irish Music, and Handmade Signs

We had the pleasure of hosting Kristien and Caleb's beautiful September wedding at Lenora's Legacy this past autumn. Their wedding took place on a heavenly early fall day under a perfect blue South Carolina sky. Kristien was an absolutely stunning bride - and would you believe also an expert marksman who has won state awards in competitions? The wedding day was filled with the sounds of traditional Scots-Irish mountain music called "porch music", romantic flowers accented with feathers and cotton pods, and countless personal details. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind wedding...

We loved the unique signage throughout Kristien and Caleb's wedding. This sweet sign also echoed the Mason jars used to hold candles and flowers for the ceremony and reception.

The ceremony took place under the old oak tree below the gazebo.

Don't you love these Mason jars strung from the trees? Filled with candles, they were a perfect accent for the ceremony area.

Cotton pods and feathers were used to create the boutonierres for the men in the wedding. The same natural elements were used on the front porch of the country store for the gift table and photo display. And how cute is that bow tie?

Kristien was an absolutely stunning bride! From her wedding dress to her floral crown to her radiant smile, she positively glowed.

The simple, elegant bridesmaid dresses fit in beautifully with the Scots-Irish details in the wedding. And check out the fabulous braided updo on the bridesmaid on the left - divine.

We love to see the meaningful details our brides and grooms include in their weddings. These ceremony signs with a verse from Ruth 1:16 took our breath away. If you like this idea, take a peek at this wonderful sign with a quote from Ecclesiastes.

The flowers were so soft, romantic, and natural. Blue Mason jars with pink, blue, white, and red blossoms hung from the chairs lining the ceremony aisle.

Caleb and Kristien chose incredible music for their wedding. This group of musicians played "porch music", a traditional Scots-Irish mountain sound.

It's not a South Carolina wedding dinner without shrimp 'n' grits!

Great old photos of the bride and groom were displayed alongside a verse from an E.E. Cummings poem.

The reception ended with the perfect unique personal touch - adorable cut outs of Kristien and Caleb atop the wedding cake. The whimsical cake topper truly showcased the personality of this fun and creative couple.
