I Tied The Knot!

I recently got married and I am finally catching my breath from that whirlwind too! We did a Rustic Chic Vintage Barn Wedding.  Everything was vintage from my dress that was constructed from three vintage dresses to the silverware on the tables.  It was everything I imagined and more.  My colors were Tangerine & Turquoise. I did over 15 vintage vignettes on the property.  It was a lot of work and with the help of my entire staff and family we got it all done in time.

You asked for photos, so I am sharing a few here…More to come on the next post.


I am SO thankful to my stylist Whitney Sellors who made it the best hair day ever!


I wore blue cowboy boots and made my vintage brooch & button bouquet. (I can make one for your big day too…just email me)

Me being sassy for the camera….I enjoyed EVERY moment of the day. Every bride told me how it goes so quickly.

I made certain that I was present for every moment and that I thoroughly enjoyed every single moment.



My girls and I wore cowboy boots. Vince sported some pretty snazzy blue suede kicks too!


Here are a couple of the vintage vignettes….this was our card & gift table. I am all about owls so I had to include a few in the decor & theme of the wedding.

Cari, Just saw the post on your very special day. I have to say it looked just I would have expected you to have. You and your new hubby looked so happy and you were totally beautiful in your georgous gown and blue boots. Love all your vintage touches everywhere. Met you at a sale in Grand Blank and you were as sweet in person as you are on TV. Congratulations to you both.

My husband, Ted and I are so happy for the both of you. Of course I noticed the buttons in your bouquet. I am the “little button lady” you met at 2 of the Country Living Fairs that lives in Grosse Pointe Woods, MI. We hope to be seeing you very soon in your store, at the warehouse and/or an estate sale. Again, Congrats! You both look happy and Cari, you are beautiful!!!!

Your looked fantastic and your wedding dress was beautiful. I can’t believe you made 2 chairs out of an old bath tub (with claw feet no less!!). Best wishes for a wondeful married life.
