Like many a bride before me and since, I was all about the details on our day. And while you’ve been seeing them as we went along, I know one of the things I’ve always loved most are the posts full of the lovely details that made someone’s day special. So, all through our planning, I’ve been looking forward to writing this for you.
I was very lucky that our photographer understood how important these details were for us and took extra time to make sure they were captured forever. For us, and for you. So, without further ado, our much awaited (even if only by me!) details:
I love a gorgeous hanger shot, but didn’t want my name on mine. So instead, I had this.
One of my favorite details of the entire day was my flowers. Oh how I loved those gorgeous flowers. I never get tired of seeing them.
I had envisioned this sweet background to our ceremony of vellum hearts, hanging at varying lengths behind us as we got married. However, due to the weather forecast that weekend (humidity!), the vellum didn’t hold up as intended. Instead, it looked like a soft romantic cascade of petals behind us.
An important part of our ceremony was our toast and drinking of the wine, and also a wine box and love letters ceremony. The details for each, along with our rings, were waiting patiently on a table in our ceremony space.
And this is a great shot of our ceremony space. You can see the tissue paper flowers on the ceiling, the tissue paper and small round pomanders and the flower petals down the aisle.
And because I loved them so much, here is a good close up of the tiny little paper lanterns that were strung up around the pavilion like garland.
On the way into the ceremony, guests were asked to take a stone with them.
And on the way out of the ceremony, the guests wrote something on their stone and left them for us to keep forever.
We also made sure our guests were hydrated during the ceremony by having bottled water available for them.
At cocktail hour, there was our escort card table. Also on the table were our guestbook papers and some of our engagement pictures.
I was especially proud of the last minute escort cards we devised and the set up I threw together for them.
Also at cocktail hour were”¦well, cocktails. Okay, beer and wine actually, but cocktails was more catchy. At the last minute, I wrote up a sign for the bar so folks would know what their options were.
I loved the way our reception tables turned out. Here you can see our centerpieces and photo sharing cards. We also supplied the napkins.
Here’s a closer view of the centerpieces from the front.
And the centerpieces from the back, with the photo scavenger hunt card.
Our cake table may not have been super elaborate, but I really loved our cake.
And who could ever forget how much I loved that cake topper.
Our fauxtobooth props definitely felt the love throughout the afternoon.
Some of them might have even escaped and romped around outside of our fauxtobooth too”¦
And finally, our ribbon wands, waiting for their big moment.
