Would like to put together OOT bags as some of the guests are going to have to travel a few hours by car to get to the wedding.

Since we are having an outdoor wedding/reception was thinking about using mason jars as the flower vases and found some really cute lantern ideas as well on etsy.

We are originally from Northern California and relocated to the Chicago area in March 2008 for the BTB career.

Got engaged on Christmas Eve 2009 at BTB parents house in California.

Wedding date is September 10, 2011 in Ripon, CA the brides hometown. Still in the planning stages at this point.  We want something simple and elegant, nothing over the top.
