A very long Day-aka Wedding Set Up day

My day started early with a loaded car and trailer, then off to the Bride's house to pick up more props and guy helpers. After that, a quick unload at the church and then a lunch break at Cici's

Below you see the Bride with several of her brides maids fueling up on pizzaThen back to the church to get down to the real work. The guys brought in lots of boxes of supplies etc, as well as the big stuff, the arch and lattice.
The the ladies got to work cutting ribbon, making bows, and dressing the pews

While I focused on draping the arch, you can see just a bit of me behind it there.

Then off to the reception area and more cutting and table dressing

We even got the guys in on the decorating. One of the issues with using this part of the church for the reception, was that I was not allowed to hang anything from the walls, nothing, nada, no exceptions.

And there was a lot of blank wall space in there. So I came up with this idea. I got pre-cut lattice panels, leaned them against the wall, and then did a framed vase treatment.
In the photo below, you can see one of the lattice panels in the background.

I had at least a dozen helpers, maybe even more, and it took us ALL DAY to get both areas decorated. And I've got to get out there tomorrow morning to finish off the entry table and placing more flowers. This is such a big job and I can't wait to share more pics with you. However, it is so hard to capture how great it looks with my camera.

I just want to give a shout out to all my helpers and tell them how thankful I am for their help. These 2 kids getting married, are loved by so many folks, and they came out today to show their support in a real way. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
