Inside the locket are pictures of my grandparents (my mom's parents). I was really close with both of my grandparents and unfortunately they are no longer with us. So having this locket wrapped around my bouquet was a great way to have them close to my heart on my special day.
My bouquet was full of all cream colored roses.
The guys all wore charcoal colored suits with sage green pocket squares, while Ryan's was a cream pocket square.
My mom made the ringbearers' pillows herself.
We had two ringbearers, Ryan's youngest brothers. That's right...my youngest brothers-in-law are now 9 and 10 years old! Their boutonnieres were just made of berries so that they held up throughout the day. You know how boys can be :)
Ryan wanted a cigar bar at the reception so I bought matchbooks with our names and wedding date printed on them.
On the reception tables, we alternated flower and non-flower centerpieces. Have of the tables had a vase filled with coffee beans (which smelled amazing by the way) and a birch covered candle. All of the tables had a few votive candles and pinecones.
Here is a picture of the flower centerpieces. White pumpkins were hollowed out and served as the vase. This is actually the head table. We decided to have two long tables put together to make one big square table. We thought that since so many friends and family were coming into town we would actually like to see them and be able to talk to everyone.
The pumpkins were filled with green and cream colored flowers, berries and twigs. They lasted 2 weeks!
This is the gift table. One of my mom's friend wrapped and decorated a box for the cards.
This is our wedding cake with a vintage cake topper my mom found (do you see a trend here...my mom did so much!). Ryan and I actually wanted pies for the dessert. We bought pies from a local farm that are to die for. They always make us think of fall. So we got this small cake to use for the cake cutting. It was pretty delicious too!- banana spice.
Guests were welcomed into the reception room with a table full of pinecones that held their placecards.
I printed the placecards myself and stamped and embossed the viney detail.
And there you have it...the details behind our wedding. Stay tuned to see pictures of the wedding party, the ceremony and the dancing!
