DIY Wedding

 Lemonade and iced tea were served
before the ceremony
amidst the vintage blue mason jars of fresh flowers:
 From the save-the-dates, to the invitations,
to the decorations and bouquets,
all of the wedding was designed and created
by this bride, Michelle! 
Very personal! 
{sigh}
Below are the table favors
which were the escort cards/ table seating: 
 Old photos of loved ones on a special table
and a banner of more B&W photos hung above:
 Michelle's handmade bouquet was wrapped with linen
and next to the brooch you see here,
were two lockets that held photos
of the loved ones who were missed
but were our angels:

Michelle painted and antiqued this beautiful, old table
we found last summer at a flea market:

Head table:

Thank you for putting up with me as I share my joy!
I promise to stop now...I think.

Shades of blue, cream and yellow flowers,
every detail so delicately sweet and lovely...
wondering who got Mia's awesome
bouquet?
Really like the vintagey feel of it all...
