This bride stuck with mainly white and red colors and kept the decor pretty simple. Thank goodness for that, we had to completely change the area from a ceremony site to a reception site in under an hour!! Her dad made these awesome birch candle holders that looked great above the fireplace area. We complimented the look with arrangements of large curly willow. At the base of each arrangement we had red roses. Very elegant yet still had that outdoorsy feel to it. Check one more off the list!!

The colors for this wedding were chocolate brown, sage green, and a pale yellow. The bride really wanted to have a "natural" element to the wedding as well as a outdoorsy sportsman feel, if that makes sense. For the welcome baskets I put together some of the Alaskan brochures and magazines, included some postcards, local confections, and two bottles of Alaskan summer ale. All of these items were put into an Ammo tin and then tied off with a little note of thanks from the bride and groom. They were a hit!The centerpieces were very fun and unique. I wanted to bring in something with the centerpieces that showcased the natural element that the bride wanted. So I made the arrangement on top of cool shaped rocks. The more unusual the shape the better, as long as it wasn't tippy! Then at each place setting was a small glass votive filled with polished rock and a lit candle.
We had tents set up with the tent liners, which add alot. Paper lanterns clustered in the middle of the tent and a few large ones all around the sides of the tent gave a more intimate feel when you were inside.
Thanks for taking pictures Marie!

Yaya and Opa came to visit all the way from sunny FL. I wish it was a bit warmer for them while they were here, this summer has been cold! They wanted to help with wedding stuff while they were here, so I put them to work!! All their help was very appreciated. I really just loved having them around.
Baseball. Tucker and Gunner have been playing T-ball and baseball the last several weeks and we've been having fun watching them. Calvin and Raerae love running around and playing in the dirt while the game is going. Sometimes Calvin will include himself in the stretches and huddle from afar.
Weddings, weddings, weddings......Seems all my free time these days is taken up with weddings. Invitations, decorations, flowers, you name it. I've been lucky to have Tandy Cypher and Sarah Brown as friends. Their help has been such a relief! Chris is such a great support, he's my right hand man at weddings. He has a knack for putting out fires before they even start. My sister Marie's help has also been so valuable to me. I would have been up all night with flowers if she hadn't been there to help the night before this wedding. And I love that she is always ready to take pictures for me, because that is one thing I never seem to remember to do.Here are some pic's from the last one. I've got another one tomorrow. I'll post pictures afterwards.Chris goes on vacation starting on Friday, which we are all so excited about! Camping, fishing, lazy days together are going to be so great!
