Crystal and John: Country Chic Wedding

I look back on this weekend and I still can not believe that we pulled it off! This weekend and the following were the most exhausting C and D weekends ever. We had literally maybe 6 hours of sleep TOTAL for both weekends. It took me weeks to recuperate  But, looking back, all 4 events were monumental successes that it was all worth it.

Crystal called me up one day inquiring about our day of service and design service. We chatted on the phone for a few and she invited me over to check out her stash. Wedding stash that is. I told Court about the call and she was curious, as was I. We headed out to her house so that we could get a feel for her personal style. Then we headed to her future in-laws. There, we stepped into a shabby chic paradise. They had been collecting items upon items for this wedding. It was everywhere! Benches, chairs, pottery, milk glass, bird cages, mason jars, chandeliers, you name it, they had it. Her problem was that she needed someone to put it all together. We were pretty overwhelmed, but knew it would be fun to plan and such a great wedding for the portfolio. It didn't hurt that we found Crystal to be the cutest thing ever and her hubs to be was such a sweetheart. We were sold - and so were they!

We visited a few more times, made some plans, did table mock ups, and got ready! We had pictures for every table (every table was different) and a spreadsheet about 10 pages long of what flowers go where. We started on Thursday night..
It is an organized mess - I promise! 
We arrived Friday with 2 car loads of flowers! TWO!
