Pictures are all we have now-the Wedding Day

Again, my day started early and I was able to get in the church to start on the foyer table. I made the little frame collage there by stringing burlap ribbon and attaching various frames. Inside the frames were a variety of photo's that the bride provided. Beside the collage is an old typewriter, with a note in it that says "Please Sign our Register" The register is there in front of the pen.
More photo's a wonderful arrangement and some more burlap ribbon and babies breath. The bride wanted lots and lots of babies breath and that is what she got.
In front of the Bride's portrait are scattered various snapshots.
Here you see the completed draped arch, 2 frames with floating green vases filled with babies breath are hung on each side. A shabby chandie from the top and 2 single garden candelabras on each side. A Vintage brooch finishes off the floating vases. When the candles were lit and the complete wedding party was in place it was absolutely fabulous. I can't wait to share those pics with you.
Down the isle we decorated every other pew with more burlap ribbon, a boquet of babies breath and and some beautiful green ribbon, chosen by the Bride.

Next post the reception area, which is where the bulk of the decorating took place.

BTW it was a fabulous wedding. What took 2 days to put up, took less than 2 hrs to take down. She got just what she wanted and I'm glad for that.

Great job Margo!! Amazing how long it takes us to do the special things for our kids and how fast we can take it all down and put it away. Months of planning and poof! Congrats to the newlyweds :)
