Heather and Travis: An Antique-Style Ranch Wedding

We’re back with more from Heather and Travis’ fabulous DIY Ranch wedding! There are so many wonderful details, all so perfectly placed, we can’t decide what we like best!! Not only did Heather and Travis have the most beautiful bash, but they were so full of energy and love that the day flew by like a dream!

You won’t believe the pretty details in store at this antique-styled reception at Dawn Ranch Lodge!

It’s the little details that add up to a memorable day; their pendant banner set the stage for a sweet after-dinner dessert bar to be unveiled later in the night.

I love how they carried the book theme to their centerpieces! Classic novel titles graced each whimsical grouping of flowers and found objects – I want the Pride and Prejudice table!
