Log Cabin Wedding


 All images via my iPhone and a photo heavy post 
my friends but worth the look.

Our friends Cathy and Randy were married behind a log cabin from late 1790 or there about. This is the old door they stood in front of for their vows covered in  beautiful wisteria and bridal veil spirea flower arrangements. This property belongs to Cathy's best friend who is a professional florist who has done the flowers for the Georgia Governors Ball. I cannot convey the beauty of the grounds, house, and cabin. I wrote about their love story and engagement in my Hold Everything Lightly series in Love At The Hardware Store.


More bridal veil spirea and popcorn viburnum collected from an old home place nearby.




Many of the tables were covered in toile and the china on our table was transferware. 


The inside of the cabin was brimming with primitives and guests could eat at this table.





Now I want a cabin in my side yard. 



When asked what kind of cake she wanted Cathy said no cake. She replied "I want cakes." She had eleven different cakes made by her friends and family. We sampled as many as we could. The Humming Bird Cake was my favorite.


The Caramel Cake was gone before we got to the cakes. We had a wonderful time at this log cabin wedding. The attire was casual so Joe and I wore cowboy boots which was fun.

Thank you for your sweet comments yesterday. I am sore but doing just fine today.

  1. Olive, what a beautiful yet casual setting for a wedding. The log cabin is adorable as is the quilts inside the cupboard. Love the idea that there were many cakes to choose from instead of the traditional wedding cake. Have a wonderful day!

  3. I can't imagine a more perfect setting. How fortunate that the bridal veil spirea was in bloom now. It is a favorite of mine. And then using the black toile for the tables gave it that sophistication you can't beat. I love it that friends brought their favorite cakes instead of one large wedding cake. You sound like you enjoyed this wedding thoroughly. That's nice.

    Just read your C.S. Lewis quote on prayer at sidebar and loved it so much!
