pull up a chair & sit a spell…

July 12, 2011
seating 600 folks…that’s a mighty big heap o’ chairs.
sticking to our grit & GLaMOUR theme, we opted against the standard rental slipcovers and decided to keep it simple.
and rustic.
and CHEAP.
and rather than a VIP section, we opted for a VIP TRAiLER CouRT using our newly gypsy-fide AiRSTREAM.
we added a hodge-podge of fleamarket rugs, cowhides, retro metal chairs, and TONS o’ candles.
and inside, the coolest gypsy-vibe-room ever.
(seriously, at one point we were standing in the doorway with dierks bentley and his wife cassidy…and inside the airstream sat reba and her husband-narvel blackstock, kelly clarkson, lady antebellum, and kellie pickler. surreal.)

for some of the chairs we created a custom design just for the occasion and had it crafted into chair slipbacks….
inspired by MiRANDA & BLaKE and some of the things they love

{custom slips for the big day…perfect for our GLaM deer camp theme. (photo credit: robert evans)}

a trophy buck, hunting, guns, and randy travis’s song, forever & ever amen (because according to CrAZY LEgS, NOTHING says ‘i love you’ like crossed pistols and a dead deer :))….with baroque details, ornate scrolls, and prairie-colored roses.

the design was printed on canvas and sewn to fit the chairs (the chairs actually ended up about an inch bigger than our initial measurements, but we work on the fly so with a little stretching, we made it work:)). we tied floppy hot pink satin sashes on each chair for a pop of hollywood honkytonk and they were perfect.

for other chairs, we wrapped ripped pieces of canvas around the backs and then tied them off with vintage belt buckles and die cast cap guns.

 old style granny rocking chairs & retro metal HoT PinK chairs….

 the retro metal chairs sat in front of the AiRSTREAM that served as the ViP trailer court…we placed the rocking chairs on the porch of the barn (for a great view overlooking the creek).

and of course…the chairs at the head table…

but possibly, the best seat in the house…was right here…

{an authentic tipi perfect for a true-blue oklahoma boy}

 with rugs, mushy pillows, and a crystal chandelier…

because of course, WHO doesn’t need a tipi at their wedding? 🙂

    I absolutely LOVE this. Still waiting to find my country boy! And I love the airstream. My parents sold their camper a few years ago and I miss camping so much. Love you guys! I just saw Miranda at CMAC in Canandaguia, NY. Loved the concert. Can’t wait to see her again and get the Pistol Annies CD.

    This is for Carolyn in Virginia. We found 5 of those bicci bling chairs in the sielvr grey color (called mink) with the diamond rhinestones in the back. Two in tj Marx in fla and 3 in ct. We need at least ONE more to complete set. if you want to sell the one or if anyone has seen one anywhere please buy it or them and we will gladly pay you and pick up or pay for shipping. We checked most Marshall’s on the drive to fl from ct but to no avail. PLEASE please help!!! Thank you!!! Patdkelly @cox.net
