My husband and I decided to host our second wedding in our lush backyard. I love vintage and refurbished items. I also love bold colors and a mix of blooms. I found an old four-poster head board at a thrift store for $5, painted it and added flowers, foliage and origami hearts to use as a ceremony backdrop.

I had those two old chippy doors in my house as decor. I dragged them out along the fence and added fresh flowers. The ladder was actually my husband's grandfather, who was a house painter. I had the bike (yes I actually ride that!) and the basket.

We did a lot of with origami hearts, tulle and backyard flowers. Instead of a conventional wedding cake, I bought a sheet cake with a wildflower design and made a bride and groom doll to sit beside it.

This wedding was a lot of fun to plan! Affordable, fun with a lot of crafty flair. Thank you for looking!
