{real wedding} sara christian + patrick's shabby chic garden wedding

Happy Wedding Wednesday! DIY lovers get ready for one amazing wedding. Sara + Patrick’s wedding is mind blowing with all the pretty details like those clever conversation bubbles. The couple’s family and friends all pitched in and helped with the wedding.   The most raved about details of the wedding were Sara’s Aunt Mandy’s 200 strawberry and peach jam jar favors and Patrick’s Aunt Sally made 10 Wayne Theibaud painting inspired round cakes. 
From Sara, the bride: My favorite part of our entire day was seeing my groom at the end of the aisle and watching him tear up when we saw each other! That moment made all of my anxieties disappear and I forgot all about the chaos from the months, weeks, days, and hours leading up to then. I don't think either of us cared that the heat index that day was 105! 
Sara's grandmother made over 30 trimmed rounds of fabric to anchor the centerpieces composed of grocery store flowers and thrift store vases!
