Mason jars spray painted gold, wrapped with wired twine and ribbon, and my fabric flowers.
The card box was made from a plain cardboard box wrapped in moss and decorated with fabric flowers. The “cards” letters from printed from Wedding Chicks. Our photo guest book featured our engagement pictures and was designed by my mom and printed through Picaboo.
Our beautiful ceremony set-up.
Guest chairs with programs and ribbon wands.
Ombre aisle rose petals. We decided not to have an aisle runner to save costs, so we decorated the edges of the aisle with rose petals. I thought it looked really great!
When it was time to start the ceremony, our day-of coordinator Julie led us from our holding area and lined us up to the side of the gazebo, so no guests could see us. Then she cued our harpist and we were on our way!
Our flower girl tried to take a few steps …
… then quickly plopped. A couple weeks later, she started walking.
(Look at that happy face … inside I’m thinking “Don’t trip, don’t puke. Don’t trip, don’t puke.”)
That’s my “Don’t forget to breathe” face.
I made a hilarious face because the ring was a little tight.
The big kiss. I stepped forward but Mr. BFT’s feet were glued to the floor! (Brides-to-be: Practice your first kiss!)
“Yay, it’s over!”
Next week – Cocktail Hour and more portraits! I sure am dragging this out, aren’t I?
