so many adorable weddings lately

please click on these images so that you can see them full size. this wedding is absolutely adorable and has a really sweet story to go with it. you can read the full story here. i especially love the hayrides they gave the kids (as i'm fond of my hayrides when i was little). i also very much love the use of vintage table clothes on top of the boring old white ones. the wedding was held on a farm where you can pick your own blueberries and flowers. luv it!

next up...

i love the glamour of this fall wedding and especially love the shrug she is wearing. i wish i could pull that off in the summer but i'd likely look like a drowned goose if i attempted it. i've never associated myself with the word "glamour" so i should stay clear of things that i give that lable. more here. this is the wedding of christine from pretty.pretty paper.

that's what i'm talking about

yep, that's what i'm talking about. this is the exact type of container collection i'm going for on the tables. milk glass, shiny bits and cut glass or clear vases. now just imagine bright red paper flowers overflowing from them and you'll get the picture. photo: creature comforts via perfect bound

just when you thought you were orginal

i've been really slack lately about writing anything when i post pics. it has been exceptionally busy with work and life so i've just been trying to stay afloat. anyway, good news all around. i passed my fresh meat roller derby trials and am now allowed to start "real" training. i was super excited about that! so we have a break over the holiday and start back to training two days a week in January. woohoo! but back to the post. you know, just when you think you have an original idea, somebody comes right along and tells you they've already done it. i've been admiring for some time a local antique shop's salt and pepper shakers and thought that they would be really cute on top of the cakes and pies at the wedding. since we've decided to go with several good cakes rather than one day old crusty wedding cake, i've been thinking about toppers. i would say "wouldn't it be cute if you put a set of shakers on top of each one," but you can see for yourself how cute it would be. from wedding chicks
