Wedding of the Week: A Rustic, Autumn Wedding With Antique Touches at Historic Cedarwood

Friday, March 16, 2012

My job rocks. I get to look at beautiful weddings from blogs and I get to share my favorites with you. Today's favorite is from Cedarwood, a historic wedding venue known for its designer weddings.  The wedding is a beautiful, antique-inspired event from last Fall with really cool details. I'm not sure which I liked more - the vintage photographs and props or the custom signage - but I'm sure you will enjoy it all!

Heidi + Jason
Wedding Date ~ September 23, 2011
Venue ~ Cedarwood

From Cedarwood:
Oh my goodness, how we adore our bride Heidi’s Maggie Sottero “Rhianna Royale“ wedding dress in the delicate color called light gold. No one can illuminate a gorgeous bride and her gown quite like Ace Photography. Seriously, there are so many stunning photos of this bride and her groom Jason at their September 23 Cedarwood wedding, it took three selection sessions just to narrow down our favorites for this post.

Autumn is a glorious time for an outdoor wedding, with warm weather and a touch of fall peeking through the end of summer. Heidi and Jason balanced their romantic pastel-hued wedding with rustic moss, wood, and burlap, as well as autumn-colored accents - including Jason’s southern-chic paisley print bow tie!

Vintage jewelry, bouquet rosary, family heritage photo table, heirloom quilts, and embroidered monogrammed jars of homemade apple butter for guests favors made the wedding personal and unique. A friend of Heidi and Jason gave them original art featuring Cedarwood’s historic house, barn and truck (we love it!) for wedding guests to autograph instead of a traditional guest book — a perfect, steal-worthy idea! Just as original are the custom art-calligraphy chalkboard signs Cedarwood created for Heidi and Jason’s ceremony ‘program,’ seating chart, and bar menus. Kudos to Karen, our resident artist, who keeps raising the bar on Cedarwood‘s custom signs!

Other favorite details from this wedding include Heidi and Jason’s vintage cigar box ring bearer ‘pillow’ – almost as adorable as the little guy himself – and their trio of wedding cheesecakes! There’s so much to enjoy about this beautiful southern soiree! What’s your favorite detail?













I don't know about you but, personally, my favorite detail is the sheer happiness on the happy couple's faces in the pictures. I know, cheesy right? But there's nothing like seeing a bride and groom truly enjoy their day and that's what tends to happen when the Cedarwood team is there to see you through from start to finish.

There are plenty more pictures from Heidi and Jason's big day so check out the complete blog post here. We've got many more beautiful weddings from Cedarwood to feature so definitely look forward to them. Thank you to Ace Photography and Linda at Cedarwood for sharing this beautiful wedding with us, we can't wait to see more!

Blogging is something I’ve enjoyed doing for years. My interests lie mostly in lifestyle related topics like fashion, style, design, food and weddings. When I heard Ashley was looking to bring on new members to the ABG team, I jumped at the opportunity - I can’t think of a better way to stay involved in weddings than to write about them and to stay in touch with the trends and new ideas. Lucky for me, Ashley likes my blog and trusts my experience to bring me on and so far, it’s been a blast.
