Jenna and Dustin had a whimsical garden-party theme which transported their guests into a wedding wonderland! Check out that antique door set-up! It was placed at the entrance to the reception, where guests passed through it underneath a swarm of fluttering paper butterflies. Lang Photographers were on hand to capture all the darling details.
A little more info straight from the bride, Jenna:
We made all of the centerpieces for the tables from logs at my cabin from an old tree. My mom took a drill and put holes in the logs for the tables (so we could put flowers in the holes). She also put varnish down the holes so they would hold water for the flowers. She’s amazing!
My sister made all of the butterflies (from music sheets) that hung from the old doors at the entrance of our reception.
The images below were sent by Jenna, shot by Jenna’s new sister-in-law, Anne Robert:
Some advice from Jenna:
Plan, plan, plan! But don’t overdo it, stay happy during your engagement. You’re only engaged once, and when you get stressed over planning, you’re most likely not happy. Sometimes you’ve got to let go of that small stuff. And on your wedding day, plan for not everything to go smoothly, but ignore it! It’s literally the most fun day ever!
