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
