Rustic-Luxe Celebration : Kaitlin+Jared Part 3

Photos by Justin Wright Photography (except where noted)

Kaitlin and Jared Carlson’s rustic summer wedding was infused with lush, natural floral and decor, one of our design team’s favorites!  This style is so fresh, so alive and, as this wedding shows, oh so elegant! Check out the phenomenal wedding photos from Kaitlin and Justin’s ceremony and portraits taken around the Cedarwood property by Justin Wright Photography in part one and two of this series.  Now, it’s time to celebrate in rustic-luxe style!

Hats off to Kaitlin and her amazing mom, Jan Carnes, for coming up with unique details to add charming personal touches, including a display of delectable treats for the dessert table, cookie favors in the cutest muslin bags, with Jared’s special cookie recipe, a custom stenciled dinner menu and the sparkling lemonade sign.  The custom designed wedding cake by Patty Cakes is over-the-top amazing and A Dream Come True Catering prepared the feast for the fete.

Kaitlin says one of her fondest memories is celebrating with family and friends on the dance floor, especially seeing her grandparents  dancing and being goofy, and her aunt, ‘who came from out of nowhere’ to catch the bouquet toss.  We loved seeing guests dancing on the front lawn and Kaitlin and Jared’s picturesque vintage roadster send-off.  The 1929 Mercedes roadster was built it by Kaitlin’s great uncle years ago. Her aunt and uncle drove away in it after their wedding as well. Way Cool!

  1. Jared and I had so much fun and were able to enjoy every single moment. I didn’t want the day to end. A lot of that was thanks to you guys. Ya’ll got every detail…the decorations…the atmosphere… all even better than I imagined it. My parents, Jared and I have had so many people tell us that it was the prettiest wedding they have ever been to. I can’t tell you guys thanks enough for how beautiful everything was.
