                    Everything about the wedding of Chelsea Craig (29 and a dance teacher) and Jeffrey Craig (35 and a physician) felt like the fall

Everything about the wedding of Chelsea Craig (29 and a dance teacher) and Jeffrey Craig (35 and a physician) felt like the fall with lots of DIY touches to make their day extra personal. Their wedding took place at Dominion House in Guthrie, Oklahoma, which was “was absolutely the most ideal venue we could have imagined,” Chelsea says. It had a beautiful garden with a mansion backdrop, and the elegant vintage vibe was perfect for their outdoor fete. Chelsea and Jeffrey wanted to put their mark on their wedding day, so to reflect Jeffrey’s great love of pumpkins, created DIY pumpkin vases they filled with romantic blush and ivory floral arrangements by Madeline’s Flower Shop, which lined the aisle and decorated the dining tables. The ring bearer even walked down the aisle with a pumpkin. At the end of the evening, Chelsea and Jeffrey gave their guests pumpkins as wedding favors, with a handmade lantern to hold as the newlyweds made their horse-and-carriage exit. A memorable highlight? During the reception, Chelsea’s flower girls—also her dance students—performed to “Love Never Fails” by Brandon Heath.

Madeline's Flower Shop created these whimsical dark blush and ivory bouquets for Chelsea and her bridal attendants that looked like they'd been swept up from a meadow. The arrangements included roses, dahlias, stock, wax flowers and dusty miller.
Chelsea's maid of honor and bridesmaid wore dusty rose short-sleeve dresses and carried matching whimsical bouquets. Her "bride announcer" wore a dusty rose dress with a sophisticated updo and headband to match the elegant, vintage style.
Pumpkins and gourds lined the aisle leading to Chelsea and Jeffrey's garden ceremony. Scattered blush and white flowers added to the romantic ambience.
