The Wedding

So several of you, I'm sure, have been on pins and needles anxiously awaiting the day I post photos of the wedding.  Well here you go.

I think the wreath has such an elegant feel to it.  I made it from the pages of old books and pearl beads.  They are simply hot glued to a Styrofoam wreath foundation and hung on an old door. Here is a link for a tutorial on how to do them.

So making the wreath got me thinking... I have fabric,... what would one look like out of fabric. Thus, the bridal bouquet was born.  And the bridesmaid's bouquets as well.  Our daughter loves Pride and Prejudice.  All of the paper roses in her bouquet came from an old copy of her favorite book.

We had so much help from friends and family - especially with the food. 
It was as good as it looks.
You've got to have some fresh flowers at a wedding.  We chose to add a couple of arrangements to the buffet table.  Aren't they beautiful?

My brother in law was kind enough to hook up the horse and carriage to help shuttle folks back and forth from their cars.  The wagon ride was enjoyed by many and added a bit of fun to the evening.

Another brother in law was kind enough to let us use his back yard for the reception.  He is a natural green thumb.  The whole yard was perfect for the event.
Our two sons and a friend spent the whole night making Italian sodas for the guests.  They had a good time.  The soda bar added another element of fun to the evening.
And Yes I even made the ties.
All in all it was a wonderful day.  We haven't even looked at the disk with all of the photos at the temple yet.  We are looking forward to more but we'll call it good for this blog.  We are so grateful to all of our friends and family who contributed so much to make it such a wonderful day. 
The new couple is doing well.
