Hey friends! Thought I'd share some more wedding ideas while it's all still fresh in my mind. There are so many in my files still to share. It's been a busy week. Some of you may have heard that hear in Nebraska we have had damaging storms and tornados this past week. We are safe but unfortunately a small town about 50 miles from us was hit by not one but two tornados. It has been a sad and eye opening experience for many of us. Please keep the people of Pilger in your prayers. I will share more about this but in another post since this is a happy "Wedding" post. I want to keep it that way.
The sweet little hand painted bride and groom was done by my cousin Paula ( the kitty is there little sweet Chachi) lol Is that CUTE or what! THANKS Paula!
My sis made the super cute "Just Married" banner.
My sis is so great with making things look so pretty.
Here are some photos of the cakes on the cake plates. Neely had made the cute little flags for each cake, so that people could right on them what kind they are.. On the backs it said.. "We thank you for sharing your talent with us on our special day! Love, Alan and Neely"
I made my Aunt Viv's Carrot Cake.
My sis and I made the lighted canvases behind the cakes. I'm so mad at myself because as I was organizing photos I must have accidentally deleted the photos I took of the steps as we were making those, as my plan was to give you a tutorial. We found the tutorial on Pinterest .. so if you are interested just there. We did 3 ..... 3x4 canvases and put them together on the back of the cake table, at the reception.
So thankful to my friend Cindy Van Koll who make this drawing I did into a chalkboard sign for us for the cake area at the reception. She also did one for Dancing and for the Photo Booth. Cindy ... you are amazing and such a great friend!
I thought this was such great idea .. and such a fun way to get people talking. All around the railing where the cakes where , they had old photos of them in their childhood with family and friends who were at the wedding clipped up on twine with painted clothes pins.
So many sweet person touches. In an up coming post I'll share some of the decorating DIY ideas.
I was so lucky to get to be part of the "putting together" of the fun stuff for this wedding with Neely and my sister Jan. It was SO FUN! It was like a creative whirlwind of ideas! Watching it all come together on this gorgeous day.. while witnessing the union of these to beautiful souls was just over the top amazing!!
Love them beyond words
Thanks for stopping by!
