eleven {twelve} eleven: details

Mr and Mrs signs painted by me

our rings
(minus my band since there wasn't a good photo with it included)

my something blue

my something old, Gramma's handkerchief she used on her wedding day and my something new, my earrings and bracelet

my something borrowed, my parents wedding rings that I tied to my bouquet

love this shot of my dress and shoes

simple white hydrangea pew flowers
(with the wrong color green ribbon)

one of my name hangers and the brooch detail I had added to my dress

my bouquet wrapped in lace consisted of garden roses, gardenia, hydrangeas and ranuculus

bridesmaids bouquets ballerina wrapped consisted of hydrangeas, gardenia and hypericum berries

sign in table at the reception with our parents wedding photos and a sign I made to honor my Gramma for the day

table arrangements: this was one of 3 different floral arrangements with ranuculus, hydrangeas, garden roses and hypericum berries

this is the 2nd of the table arrangements with tulips in tall cylinder vases
the 3rd was floating candles in tall cylinder vases

our toasting flutes and my bouquet on the sweetheart table

the last minute favors that Leslie and I made the night before the wedding
(there will be a whole post on the favors that I worked all summer on and didn't work out)

 our card and present table

a special addition from the Chef of the event center

our custom napkins and Allen's parents cake servers from their wedding day

you knew owls had to be included somewhere!

the Groom's cake that Allen didn't think we needed but his Mom and I arranged to get for him - needless to say, he loved it

and the most amazing cake I could have ever dreamed of

I worked for 10 months on all the details of our wedding day and wanted something classic yet simple.  We didn't have a theme other than sticking with similar colors through out the ceremony and reception.  I described to everyone for months that I wanted a green apple green, charcoal grey, lots of white and cobalt blue as an accent color.  I believe for the most part we hit on each of those colors in every way we could.
There are many items that didn't get photographed like the coloring table I had set up for the kids with the printable coloring book from Pinterest, the basket filled with confetti poppers for our exit, our programs I spent hours on for our ceremony, a close-up of the boutonnieres or the corsages for our Mom's and Grandma's.

In the end we had a beautiful wedding day and it was perfect for us.  Every little detail was us, from the Groom's cake, the owls to the music selection and food. 
It's amazing how all the work you put in to an event can just come together to exceed your expectations and at the end of the day you become Mr and Mrs which is the whole reason for the celebration anyway

Ahhh love all the pictures! Funny bec I remember the girl taking the pic of your cake with the owls. She readjusted them so many times. We say at a table next to the cake (of course!! Haha!) but love the pics Jenn and amazed by all that you have done on your own!!

Your bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets are gorgeous. I love all of your little details (even the ones your photographer didn't capture on film).


Katie said...

Your wedding was gorgeous - LOVE all those details! Our photographer either missed, or messed up a lot of the details I specifically asked him to shoot, or ones that were just common sense - like a photo of my dress hanging up, or the many, many handcrafted details we made ourselves. We have two good ring shots, and one of those is missing my wedding band. Our photographers (yes, plural) were terrible too! I feel your pain! Your wedding and photos are gorgeous, but I know from personal experience that no matter how many people tell you that, you will always be hurt by the images they didn't capture. You can't get that day back and get those images, and it's heartbreaking. *hugs*
