Wedding Details

At the wedding I coordinated on Saturday, the bride had the guests sign the inside lid of a Longaberger basket instead of a traditional guest book. It was custom painted with the family's name and a fireman motif to represent the groom's profession. The bride's mom has been a Longaberger rep for many years and even the flower girls carried petals in their baskets and Longaberger baskets held flowers at the end of the pews.
The bride wanted the seating chart to be in keeping with the wedding venue. She hand painted all of the guests name on river rocks and then the table number on the underside of the rock. She then sealed them and they were placed around the fire pit during cocktail hour so the guests could find their table.

Candlelight was very important to the bride and there were a lot of candles. Some of the containers were glass yogurts containers and were placed on the tables, walls and mantle. There was even a roaring fire in the outside fireplace to keep the evening chill away.

In the previous post, I mentioned that I went to my prom with the bride's uncle. Here is our prom picture from 1983 on the left and our picture at the wedding on Saturday...26 years later!

Hi Donna! I found your blog about 3 weeks ago and I spent hours pouring over all of your past entries! :-)

Your creativity is SO INSPIRING!

You've inspired me to throw a shin-dig for my 3-year old! It is all about the details, isn't it?! I'll keep you posted on how it goes! Take care & thanks for your GREAT BLOG!
