“When a voice rings out with shouts and cries like thunder
When the multitude exalts the Holy One
When the Lamb of God invites His Bride to come
and the wedding of the ages has begun!!”
Lyrics: Butch Richardson
In honor of the soon-to-be second anniversary of our son and daughter-in love, I decided to share the tablescapes from their wedding reception! Hope you enjoy!!
As an interior designer, I have often been asked to do a variety of jobs, with event planning being my favorite. Over the past twenty years, the events have ranged from charity auctions to birthday parties to silver and golden anniversaries to small intimate weddings, to large wedding receptions held in beautiful venues– many being in the homes of my clients.
When our only child, Seth, became engaged, you can only imagine my excitement level when Allison and her Mother asked me to plan the wedding and reception! What a pure pleasure it was to take Allison’s ideas and make her dreams come true!
The first order of business was to select the venue. After hearing some horror stories about a few places that we checked on, J & D farms became Seth and Allison’s choice. The venue is a rustic and elegant barn designed by the owner, Danny McEachern. He and his lovely wife, Jana, are just the best to work with! Everything was done in a timely manner and exactly as we were told. With my years of experience, I know that every vendor is not reliable and many do not fulfill their promises. We were blessed with all of these wonderful people that made the dream a reality!
Venue: J & D Farms

Flowers: Attalla Florist
Catering: Becky Dunn and Pat Meads
Wedding cake: Becky Dunn
Crafting: Joann Barnett
Design: Interiors by Pam Richardson
The chair covers were made of burlap and hand-stenciled by my long-time friend, Joann
Table reserved for the wedding party. Allison chose a color palette of teal, red, and gold–perfect for an early October wedding!
The light from the abundance of candles in various heights and holders made for a romantic barn setting!
Several vintage Mason jars were used for florals
Burlap cloths were used on the tables
Each table had a variety of vases and containers for flowers
Elegant view from the barn loft. The napkins were folded in a fleur de lis and tied with twine
I designed each table to be unique and different
Mini log place card holders crafted by Joann
The favors made special for each guest by Allison
Traditional “upshot” for Tablescape Tuesday
The wedding cake was as delicious as it was gorgeous!
Since Seth is an avid hunter and outdoorsman, we incorporated his everyday living into the groom’s table…
…and it had all of his favorites: Red velvet cupcakes, his Nanny’s pound cake and chocolate oatmeal cookies. I decided since my Mother was is heaven, I would use her recipes and make the mini pound cakes and cookies for Seth. He loved his Nanny and her cooking!!
Thank you for reading and stay tuned for The Wedding Edition Part Two!
