In the vast world of “pinterest.com/category/weddings”, there are so many unique and fun crafts that people like me plan to make, but then never get around to actually making. No matter how pretty, unique, or fantastic they may look, over and over again, life puts a stop in even the best laid plans.
Weddings, though, are an excuse to pull out the stops.
At Pistol Creek Ranch, on March 28th, the now Mrs. Katy Seale showed us how it was done. From the flowers accenting the venue to the bouquets and boutonnieres, the dozen clever signs and the rustic chic wood slices, she DIY’d the ever-loving burlap out of her wedding. It was as professionally decorated a wedding as many I’ve seen, done with that home-schooler, “Anything they can do, I will do better.”
The bustle of preparing for the afternoon wedding was soothed by a faithful soft breeze, only to be rioted by the frolicking groomsmen. A few strict reprimands and a gopher-bit bridesmaid’s finger later and the ceremony was set to begin.
We shot the wedding with the help of our new “assistan-ette,” the ever-so-talented-despite-her-lack-of-age-and-photography-exposure, Michelle Wingo. As one of our favorite Jr. High students and an aspiring photographer, she filled out our three-man team nicely. (I don’t want to seem anti-semantic, so technically, it was a one “man” and two “wo-man” team). In my own humble opinion, we knocked this one out of the park. Or, we would have, but it was in a pasture, not a park.
