My Son’s Beautiful Fall Outdoor Wedding

I hope you aren’t sick of hearing about my son’s outdoor fall wedding.  But if you are, I promise that this is the last post about it … until someone else gets married! 🙂

Hang on, though, because I have a LOT of photos in this post.  So I’ve divided into parts.

First up, a confession and a shot with my son.  The confession is … that I bought a skirt and top months before the wedding.

BUT, I didn’t try it on until two days before we were leaving and it looked terrible!

I panicked, but my husband went with me to look for something else.  I didn’t have any luck at department stores, so he suggested we hit a thrift store.  Would you believe we found my dress, his shirt, and a tie for $13.00!  I ended up paying more for my shoes than everything else combined.  I learned my lesson though.  Never wait till the last minute to try on clothes, and start with thrift stores first!

I’ve always been the main woman in his life, but I happily turned him over to the new main woman in his life.  They are a beautiful couple, inside and out.

Outdoor fall wedding Bride and Groom |

The bride and her bridesmaids gathered all wildflowers for the bridesmaids’ bouquets, and they were so pretty.  Her bouquet was from a local florist and it was only $9.  She’s a fellow bargain shopper.

Here are my three sons.  Their flowers were more that the girls picked.

And here is Pico, my son’s beloved dog.  He had the official duty of being the ring bearer.  I added a burlap bow tie on to his collar and a box for the rings.

My oldest son had to help my youngest son put on his suspenders.

Here are almost all of the groomsmen.  I couldn’t fit them all in the shot.  He had several more groomsmen than she had bridesmaids, so two groomsmen walked with each bridesmaid.

I love that they went with casual clothes, even mismatched pants, and kept the expenses low for all of the bridal party.

My son’s best man has been is best friend since they were in the 6th grade.

Here’s the bride with her dad.

Their officiate was one of my son’s college roommates.  He’s an ordained minister now.  The wood backdrop behind them was made by my son to hide a propane tank behind the tree.

Here’s my son removing the rings from Pico’s collar.  I love this shot of them.

The kiss!

The venue was a community center that was formerly a school.  It’s on the National Register of Historic Places and it was the perfect location for the casual outdoor wedding they wanted.

While most of the photos are my own, the next three photos were by the photographer, a personal friend of both and the wife of one of the groomsmen.  Thanks to @abbysummittran for sharing these.

He was holding her dress up to keep the weeds from sticking to it.

My son’s ring is wood inlaid in silver.  She has two rings.  One of them is from her grandmother, and the thin band was given to my son by my father-in-law after my husband’s mother passed away.

I love this one of Pico.  He was precious throughout the whole ceremony.
