I DO ... love weddings

My sweet friend Emily recently married her best friend Boone.
The two of them worked tirelessly to prepare for their special day, making most
of the decorations and favors by hand. 
The result was a uniquely sweet and true-to-them style wedding.

Below are a few images I have from the preparations/day of.
In the spirit of hand crafting, I painted these dishes as part of a 'breakfast in bed' kit
I made as their bridal shower gift.

Pardon my apartment in the background...and Niles Crane on the TV.

I thoroughly enjoy the tradition of making the wedding rehearsal bouquet out of leftover
gift wrappings from the bridal shower. Emily indulged me, and allowed me
to have the job. I got really into it. 
Materials: Foil party balloon, assorted ribbons, tissue paper...and some tape.

As the day approached, Emily and Boone's friends gathered to help with the final details.
I took on the responsibility of Wedding Program chalkboard. The bride and groom
bought/found the frame and painted the chalkboard. I just did the writing.
(And stored it in my closet away from my kittens, as pictured here)

The happy couple!
