The church was so beautiful on its own that I didn't want to do too much decorating and take away from the its natural beauty. So I kept it simple by putting a few large green vases with blue hydrangeas and teal votive candles in the outer windows and putting a collection of three small vases with white roses and hydrangeas in the middlde windows. I made the pew bows using some teal ribbon I found on clearance at Wal-Mart after Christmas and glitter tulle and lace from Hobby Lobby. On the altar I used candles, hydrangeas and roses, and a mix of mercury glass pieces that I had in my house. There was an awkward raised wooden piece in the middle of the altar (for a Bible) so I covered it with a piece of teal fabric I had gotten out of the remnant bin at Hobby Lobby and glued brown satin ribbon on the edges. In the middle of the fabric I hung a monogram "E" that I had printed on some beautiful scrap book paper I had found. The guest book/gift table was set up in the entry way of the church. I decorated it with a bird cage that served as a place for guests to leave cards, some hydrageas and calla lilies, and a beautiful sign with our name and wedding date that my mom ordered us from Etsy.
