There is so much to love about this rustic + vintage Camp Lucy wedding, I’m just not sure where to start. Months of thrifting and crafting culminated in a perfectly themed “country fair” celebration where not a single detail was missed. From the personalized mason jar place cards to the mix + match chairs for the head table, this pretty little number proves that country chic is here to stay.

From Luke and Cat Photography… Jana and Clint planned a dream of a Texas rustic vintage wedding. The couple’s engagement happened atop the Ferris wheel at the groom’s small hometown county fair, which sparked the idea for planning their wedding. A stationery ensemble inspired by vintage fair posters, homemade baked goods, DIY elements from many “crafternoons,” farmhouse tables with mismatched chairs and tin goats all played a part in bringing the couple’s old-fashioned county fair vision to life. The fashion was vintage chic, and the color palette was a warm mix of cream, brown and dusty pink. The bride wore her grandmother’s pearls, a borrowed veil from a treasured friend and new blue earrings from her beau. The flower girls were dressed in handmade, one-of-a-kind vintage dresses.
After a heart-felt ceremony performed by the groom’s aunt, friends and family made the short trip over to the open-air stucco pavilion for drinks and appetizers. Sunset rolled in as the cocktail hour began, and guests enjoyed the easy fall breeze along with, at the special request of the groom, a serenade by a traditional South Texas staple … a mariachi band! Instead of a usual seating chart, guests grabbed “place card” mason jars to find their seat and had a designated glass for the night. The reception was the combined vision and work of the bride and groom, and in their own words, “a solid six months of junkin’ which we loved every minute of!” Many trips around Texas flea markets and antique shops brought a bounty of 150+ mason jars, an eclectic mix of vases, wooden milk crates, old frames and doors, suitcases and mail carts. Vintage linens and lace were placed atop long wooden tables, and gorgeous florals completed the tablescape. Different chairs for every seat at the head table made a welcoming focal point for the festivities. Choosing to skip a traditional tiered wedding cake, the couple called on the groom’s mother (a food show baking champion) to create a dessert table adorned with homemade cakes – all baked from scratch! From strawberry bundts to a decadent Italian cream cake, the spread was the talk of the day. A tongue-in-cheek faux bride’s cake was fashioned as the centerpiece of the dessert table using “tiers” scavenged by the bride and groom at local flea markets and antiques stores, just to get the right sizes.
Since no one leaves a county fair empty-handed, at the “spread the love” station, guests were offered homemade favors of pepper jelly and salsa. The groom and his father made the salsa, all with ingredients from the family garden. The mother of the groom made the pepper jelly with her award-winning recipe. The labor of love from the family left guests with the best of both worlds – sweet and spicy! At the end of the night, the sparklers were lit. Friends and family left with memories and homemade goodies, and the couple exited with smiles on their faces and warmth in their hearts.
