Rustic Lumber Yard Wedding: Marcus & Whitney

An eclectic mix of rustic, shabby chic and DIY, Marcus & Whitney’s wedding was held in a lumber yard in Huntsville, AL. “We just wanted everything to reflect our personalities”, wrote the bride. “We both rock to the beat of our own drum and knew we didn’t want a super traditional stuffy wedding because that is far from anything we’d ever enjoy.”

Whitney wore a Justin Alexander wedding dress with Kate Spade shoes and a pearl necklace that her grandmother had given her. She handmade her brooch bouquet. “My favorite project was my brooch bouquet”, she explained. “The majority of my brooches were passed down or gifted from family and friends so it is very special to me. It took forever to wire and stem each brooch, and I ended up taking it apart and completely redoing it three times. It was finished with my late great grandmother’s handkerchief and my best friend Shannon’s late mother’s engagement ring brooch. It will be on display in my home and cherished FOREVER! Also, Marcus and I had a lot of fun making our CD favors together – picking the music and putting them together. We did a lot of stuff together as a couple when planning the wedding and it was great to share that.”

Aww video gorgeousness. I do wish we’d had a wedding video made. Are you having one?
