Ashley and Ryan’s Checkered Picnic Wedding

This bright and beautiful September wedding has me thinking of warmer days and pining for some more sunshine! The details here are so put-together and refined, from the matching checkered linens to the fresh red and blue color palette. Those chalkboard place mats are absolutely adorable! Check out the gallery for all the amazing details shot by True Love Photo. Congratulations, Ashley and Ryan!

  2. What a thrill to be on Ruffled ! Kate Miller Events and Flourish did such a great job with the details and Ashley was a dream bride to photograph. I was so lucky to be the photographer for this extra -ordinary event !!!

    Hannah – I bought the lemonade dispenser at Home Decorators, but it’s no longer available but I did find it here (for cheaper than I got it for too!)

  7. Ashley- where did you get the popcorn and peanut bags? They are perfect! LOVE the subtle baseball theme within the picnic theme.

  8. The wedding is great! I noticed that your knife and fork were something other than steel, they looked reallly great! What type of silverware is that and where did you get it? Also, what did you use for your plates? I plan on doing a backyard wedding and we want to save money on utensils and plates.

  9. janeen,
    we used wooden utensils, i got them here: https://www.ecowareproducts.com/
    the plates were provided by our caterer and i believe they were just heavy duty paper plates.
    we also used etch-it “keg” cups and they were a hit – people loved them and still talk about how fun they were. i’d definitely recommend them for a casual backyard wedding!
    happy planning πŸ™‚

  10. I love it all!:) you are too clever! we are getting in 4 weeks, eek! where
    did you get the wine labels? or did you make them youself? have seen some on etsy but not as cute. thanks!:)

  11. Such a cute theme. My wedding is on a farm and we’re going for something similar. Who made the pennant table numbers? Thanks!
