The Canopy was definitely a labor of love, DH and I worked on it for 3 weekends!! and My MOH and her mom sewed the fabric. Everyone helped to put it up the day before the wedding!
My MIL made the cake!! it was soooo yummy!
My sweetie made this sign(well I helped by choosing the paint color, he was going to use red/gold, my heart almost stopped) it is now sitting in our garage, one day we will use it for the orchid house when we build it!
It was a beutiful day, everyone was happy, we are so glad we had a big party!
We wanted to have a very low key, intimate, and comfortable wedding with a romantic flair. This was getting pretty hard with our growing guest list. We are fortunate to have the wedding at my FIL's house/farm. this helped us keep the budget to be within 30k for 210 guest. However, this by no means an easy task, everthing had to be brought in, including porta potties!
My Letterpress Invitation!My bestfriend/MOH designed the invitation, she's an awesome artist, and had hand drawn the invitation design then converted the image to Adobe. Paula with paper flirt formated the design in order to read the color gradation. I absolutely love how everything turned out! I bought the red Fiori paper from paper source to wrap everything together, and finally tie with yarn. Hopefully this won't take too long... I don't have the prettiest hand writing, but I am going to hand dress the invitation to add some personal touch.
These are with the train
It was very difficult to figure out the bustle be cause the dress has 3 layeros organza and tulle, we ended up have to bustle inside, with 8 pickup points.
