horse shoe escort cards

I am so excited to share the first DIY project from my own wedding:
horse shoe escort cards.
Our wedding reception was at Crooked Willow Farms in Larkspur, Colorado.
A perfectly elegant and rustic venue for the all-Colorado wedding.

For my escort cards, we used pony {horse} shoes tied with raffia and a hand-calligraphied card by Christi Johnson {contact Fleur de Lis (a paperie) for contact info} and hung them onto an old, rustic door.
Not only was it a fun DIY project, but the photos turned out AMAZING!
{And, horse shoes are lucky! Not a bad thing to be lucky in love, either!}
Thank you Cori Cook Floral Design for the photos!

Assembly Team
Wonderful fiancé, mother, sisters, aunts, fabulous bridesmaids and a few bottles of wine is all you need for an assembly team 🙂
