Hi there!! Happy hump day!! Is anyone else still trying to recover from the time change? More coffee, please!
One of the first questions our wedding photographer asked us when we met her was what was important to us in our wedding photos. I really wanted the love we have for each other to be captured, but another thing that was important to me were the wedding details. My mom and mother-in-law spent days, hours, months preparing for our wedding day to make it so special for us and I wanted our photos to show that.
Today I wanted to show you a few of my favorite wedding details from our ceremony location!
The entrance to our wedding ceremony location (my in-laws house in Indiana).
My mother-in-law made these signs that lined the pathway back to our ceremony location in the backyard.
“Forever starts here”
She also created these window frames and flower holders too.
Our photographer and videographer both stressed the importance of an “unplugged” ceremony so we made sure to inform our guests.
My mother-in-law also created these pillows to set the scene. So sweet.
Our cute bags for the guests at the hotel that my mother-in-law made and my mom filled!
Our ceremony location.
My mom ordered pashminas and made cute tags that read “To have and to hold in case you get cold” which came in handy for our guests when the wind started blowing during our ceremony.
The ceremony program.
My shoes. Nothing fancy, but they did the job and were pretty comfortable.
My bouquet of white roses wrapped in pearls.
I used my grandma’s clutch during my wedding day to remember her.
I wore my grandma’s pearl bracelet and my great grandma’s (dad’s grandma) pearl necklace on my wedding day.
Some of the gifts I gave my husband on our wedding day. If you don’t already know, my husband is obsessed with our boat and being on the lake (any lake) and our love for the lake and the water was something we bonded over almost 7 years ago when we first met. I got him a monogrammed koozie (not pictured), towel, anchor bottle opener, and captains hat (his nickname for me is Franny – my last name is Francy and he has always called me Franny).
Candles my stepdad made for our cocktail hour after the ceremony.
Guest book tree logs my stepdad made for our guests to sign, which you can see displayed here on our wall in our house.
Our wedding bands.
My in-laws friends offered to drive us away from our ceremony location in their Bentley. It was amazing!
A picture of our thank you card we sent to our guests for coming to our wedding.
Thank you so much for letting me share more of our wedding day with you all!! I hope you have a great day!
