This is the first of several posts that will highlight the fabulous wedding that my son and his new wife (I love saying that) created for us all to celebrate. On August 19th our son married the one that stole his heart and we added another daughter to our family. I arrived on the Tuesday before the wedding to help with some last minute details. Ryan, Paula, and I had a great time finishing up some of the crafty kinds of things that they wanted to make their wedding a one of a kind.
The two of them came up with the idea that instead of having a guest book, they had a guest box that they made. The guests were able to write a note of well wishes to the bride and groom and place it in the box behind the proper alphabetical heart.
The large gray bucket had all of the bubbles for the bride and groom get away and the small pink damask buckets were for the flower girls to drop their petals from. We spent a couple of late nights embellishing all of these items. The small buckets were Mod Podged with pink and white scrapbook paper and I love how they turned out.
Ryan and Paula designed and put together the programs as well. I cannot tell how long it took to punch all those holes and then run the ribbon through each one, but in the end, the additional effort was so worth it. There are more details to come so check back real soon.
