It has been a coons age since I've talked about our wedding. Which is kind of odd to me because I have been missing it like crazy. Thinking of anyway I could possibly have another wedding....with the same guy. Hmmm, renew our vows? Is a year too soon? Dang...
Today I just wanted to share some of the small details throughout the day that made it all come together and show a little bit of who we are. And why they were brought into our day.
The little details were some of the most fun to me. The most fun to see play out, that is. At first they were a pain in my you know what because there were so darn many of them. And now looking back, those are what mean the very most to look at in the pictures. Thank God for pictures btw. Ya know?
I'll let the pictures do most of the talking with a little explaining. I mean, I'd way rather look at the pictures than listen to me.
These mason jars were given to us by Jeff's mother. We used them on our head table to drink out of during dinner and the reception. I have loved these little guys from the moment I saw them. Something about mason jars...
This beautiful rosary was given to me from my Grandma J. I will treasure this until forever and ever and ever.
This penny was given to me by my mom for "good luck". I think it is the luckiest penny I've ever owned. And along with it is the handkerchief I gave to my momma. It's self explanatory. She is my very best friend. My rock. And I owe that woman my whole life.
It's funny how even the mints have a story. We spent all day with my moms friend making these little boogers. And half the day eating them. They were delicious and I loved being a part of making them. Even thought most of those you see with the balls not centered are probably mine.
Template created by my best fran. And those darn paddles took about 500 bazillion hours to make. We cut, we glued, we painted, we tied. For hours. upon hours. upon hours. And during that time, we also made a video to Call Me Maybe. Success.
These pew balls. Gosh that name is just so lovely sounding isn't it. These were personally made by my Aunt Diana. I cannot even tell you how much everyone in my family helped with the wedding. Every little single detail of it. How special these are to see. The memories just keep flooding back to me.
Groomsmen gift. Office putter that looked like it was in a briefcase. Pretty legit if I don't say so myself.
I was totally head over heels in love with our cake. Head.over.heels.
I seriously cannot believe I married a Yankees fan. This cake was pretty incredible though. I mean, you could eat the sand! It was also a surprise to Jeff. He thought it was going to be a plain ol' Jayhawk. Little did he know. Now that, folks, is love. Jayhawks are way cooler.
Because we are a team, and that's how we ROLL.
These champagne flutes were given to us by my Aunt Janet. Seriously are those not the most adorable things you've ever seen? They also matched our cake knife which was also given by my Aunt Janet & Diana.
If anyone has any ideas how to redo your wedding all over again with it not costing the same amount and having all of the same people there...HOLLER! I am having withdraws.
