Downtown Durham Wedding with Rustic Industrial Charm

Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today, we’re excited to share Trey and Jenn’s Downtown Durham wedding at the modern industrial space, The Rickhouse. This crafty bride added her own rustic touches with DIY wooden decor and cowboy boots!

She incorporated her love of cowboy boots and DIY rustic wood crafts into her wedding day, with handmade signs, table numbers and menu sign. She even made her own wedding invitations!

From the outside, no one knew the difference, but once cutting you could see the layers of delicious cookie inside!

As big NC State fans, red might just be their favorite color to begin with! Get Lit did the draping for the ceremony which pulled everything together for this gorgeous event.
