My step-father Carter walked me down the aisle and gave me away
My nephew Alexander was my ring bearer. Since we were short one groomsman he walked down the aisle with his mom (MOH).

My mom hosted my bridal shower on March 18th. It had a kitchen gadget theme. She found these adorable invites, the rsvp is a recipe card (not pictured).
It was so much fun. Of course it was the one day we had a crazy storm and had to drive through snow and hail to get there but everything turned out great. I got lots of cool kitchen stuff (including a new Calphalon pan set from my mom). It was at a P.F. Changs's which is one of my favorite restraunts. My mom did an amazing job. All the girls I work with said they are going to hire her if they every have a shower.
These are the invites we have for the rehearsal lunch. I was so happy when I found them. We have red gerbera daisies in the centerpieces and they were super cheap from vistaprint.com
We are leaving from LAX the day after the wedding and heading to Kauai,HI. Staying for 8 days and 7 nights at the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort on the east side in a 1bedroom 2bath condo. I can't wait!
While we're there we are going on a intertubing tour, a sunset cruise on the napali coast, an airplane tour and a Luau of course. I wanted to do the ziplining but FI vetoed that one
For the cake table, it will be surrounded by flower petals.
Near the entrance to the ceremony space I'm going to set up a welcome table with bags for guests to collect all their favors, a party tub of water bottles with personalized labels, tears of joy packets, bubbles and then the ushers will hand out the program fans. I put these together to hold the tears of joy packets and bubbles.
This is my DIY card box. I'm not normally a very crafty person but after a couple hours and a few burned fingertips This is how it turned out. I'm very happy with the end result.
Everything I've done so far
Finally got my tears of joy packets all done. I wasn't comfortable buying ribbon online, i'd rather see it in person but I had a hard time finding enough one kind I liked for all the packets so i mixed and matched a few different ones that i thought went well together. This is how they turned out
