Hi, loves! Emma here. I’m not lying when I say that coffee ranks pretty high up there in my list of my favorite things. From espresso to cappuccino to Keurig blends (like this, my latest obsession) to pumpkin-spice fall flavors out already, I’d say that coffee is a fascination. Coffee is a pretty wonderful start to my days: it wakes me up, smells heavenly, and it’s the fuel that keeps me going, going, going. So when I saw wedding coffee bar ideas popping up on our Pinterest boards, I knew I had to turn this into an inspiration post. Because, when you get down to it, coffee and weddings are both pretty amazing; add in a few handmade finds and the result is awe-inspiring. If you’re a coffee-addict like me, you’ll love these seven things every wedding coffee bar needs to have. And don’t forget the mugs! Enjoy!

One of our favorite rustic wedding details is the use of re-purposed doors as ceremony backdrops or decor. The more weathered they are, the better! To prove that ceremony backdrops are a beautiful DIY idea, we’ve rounded up fourteen of our favorite examples. Some of these are ceremony backdrops, while others are aisle-way doors designed for the bride to make a true grand entrance — even outdoors! Get ready to break out the hammer + nails: you’re going to be on the lookout for castaway doors to re-purpose after this post! I know I am, if even just for a patio backdrop. ;) Enjoy!

P.S. Need to find doors for your project? This is a great place to start for vintage doors and hardware or Ebay. Another great place to check? estate sales near you.

Here’s a beautiful rustic chic Michigan wedding you won’t want to miss! Ashley and Jonah tied the knot earlier this year at the Lawton Heritage Community Center. Their wedding had some amazing details all captured by Chelsea from Chelsea Brown Photography. Before you see the photographs the bride Ashley tells us, “The best part of our wedding day was focusing on the fact that we were getting married, because that is the most important part of the day! There is no need to worry about things going wrong on your wedding day, because at the end of the day you get to marry your best friend, and that will last far beyond all the decorations, flowers, and food. Our all cobblestone venue really inspired our rustic chic design for our wedding.” Click to see the photos…
