Wedding Day!!

Well, I was up until the wee hours of the morn last night getting all the last minutes touches done on  things for the big day. I finally got the veil down! Yippee! My mom steamed it for me and it looked fantastic. I think the steaming was key really. She is the steaming queen! I know you cant really tell very well in this picture, but it did turn out nice.  By the end of this post I may decide to put a picture of myself on here with the veil on.

The day today started out with arriving to the Rose Chapel to decorate. My mother pretty much put everything together during the whole planning process. Her friends helped tremendously too. They were all amazing and all the table decorations turned out so beautiful!

My friend Mel strung bells together for everyone to shake for our big send off!

The flower arrangements were made by a local florist. The bouquets were just absolutely beautiful, even more so than I imagined they would be.  I was too hard to capture with my little camera.

The chapel pews were decorated with Tussy Mussys filled with ivy and herbs from my garden and a friends garden. There were also candles on the stain glass window seals throughout the chapel and on the alter. I wish I had more pictures of that! As soon as I get more pictures I will be sure to post! 

My mother found a great website that provides free templates for wedding programs and invitations. We selected the one that we liked the best and then she had them printed. 

My sister made the cake topper! It is sooooooooooooooooooo adorably cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(can you see my just married sign in the background?)

These are all shots prior to the wedding itself. When the cake arrived, it was beautiful! The cake topper looked absolutely perfect on top of it.

My cousin Phoebe made these adorable signs to hang on the back of my chair and Jeff's chair

Then, my favorite, the wedding favor.  Carmel corn with candy corn!

My grandparents were married in the chapel which makes our wedding special too.  There was a table displaying their wedding picture as part of the decoration. Sweet.

The wedding was absolutely perfect. Everyone had a good time and we danced, danced, danced.  There was even a conga line!   When I get additional pictures I will be sure and post but, for sister and me, and my veil.

(myspace pose, ha!)
