Russellville Wedding {Cynthia + Matthew}

We’re so excited to share Cynthia and Matthew’s immensely gorgeous wedding pictures today, all the way from Alabama, United States.

Cynthia and Matthew held their wedding in Russellville on a residence that has been in Cynthia’s family for 7 generations. The couple exchanged vows on a bridge within the residence, which was made by the Roanoke Bridge Co. over 100 years ago.

This charming wedding was full of southern rustic flare and sunflowers. Cynthia explains, “I’ve always known that sunflowers would be a main part of my wedding ever since I was little. My mother has always grown them in our backyard.”

Handmade and original details surrounded the wedding. Cynthia explains, “My mother, cousins and I made the wish tree. The sunflowers were planted and grown by my parents. My mother cut all of the burlap table runners. My aunt and a close family friend made all the bouquets. The photo booth was set up by two of my best friends.

I looked at many magazines and DIY websites to compile ideas that I loved and put in some of my own to make it unique for Matt and I. Our focus was to make it memorable and fun. I found most of our stuff like paper and fabric, bottles, and the bunnies from Hobby Lobby. In the end I think what made it special to us was all the hard work we had put in together and all the hard work we had seen our friends and family put into it. It meant so much more to us because of that.”

Cynthia remarks, “The wish tree idea was not original. However, I think we made it unique in the end. My grandaddy cut branches from a pear tree and cemented them into a pot for us and we tied the fabric on. The moustache idea I had wanted to do since I was about 15 years old and I have seen it since then but we still wanted to do it. Matt and I used a laser cutter at MSU to cut them and Kayla and I glued each one on a stick. The seed packet idea was one that Mom, Matt, and I came up with together. I really loved the way it turned out. The sunflower seed packets tied it all together.”
