A DIY Fall Farm Wedding at a Private Residence in Winder, Georgia

Brittany Threadgill and Brian Pankopp didn't need any vendors for their rustic fall wedding—they pulled everything together with solely the help of family and friends. The couple exchanged vows during a relaxed outdoor ceremony at the bride's family farm before celebrating with an equally laid-back eclectic reception. "When we started planning our wedding I wanted to be surrounded with all the love that I had grown up with and I got to marry my husband under the oak tree that I played under as a child!" says Brittany. Cheery sunflower arrangements popped against the couple's emerald and blue color palette while the bridesmaids' matching brown booties set the tone for a casual affair. The bride's 90 year-old grandmother, Mildred, made the flower center pieces by heating plastic spoons into flower petals. Throughout ten months, she made more than 150 flowers in different colors to complement their autumn wedding. "We were so blessed to have such a large group of people with such a wide variety of talents that were willing to help us with our special day," says Brittany.
