Handmade Lantern Ceremony Decor

"I've always pictured getting married beneath a huge tree decorated with lights," says Natasha Gentry. "So my friend and I came up with the idea of hanging votive candles and lights in different antique jars." The bride sourced mason jars from a local antique store, lighting cords from IKEA, and bulbs from a hardware store; she spray-painted the cords gold, drilled holes into the jar lids, and fit them all together to create the suspended display. "The glowing tree became the focal point of the ceremony and looked even more beautiful as the sun went down," says Natasha.
