My bouquet was white with pale pink, my bridesmaids had more pink and my maids of honor had dark pink. The flowers were peonies and roses, and my bouquet had freesia. Program What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! My hubby and I made all of the wedding stationary. I saw letterpress invitations on theknot.com that had a similar peony design and fell in love, but they were way too expensive, so we made them ourselves using cardstock and rubber stamps. We ordered the peony stamp in three different sizes from stampworx2000.biz. I also decorated the basket with silk flowers that complimented the wedding flowers. There were three other baskets - two for the bathrooms and one for the sparklers to be used during the send off at the end of the evening. Mm, cake! What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! The groom's cake was us in front of the Hollywood sign, respresenting an early date that really made us a couple. The wedding cake was topped with flowers that complimented the bouquets and a hummingbird. The hummingbird is a remembrance of the day we got engaged - there were three hummingbirds flying around when he proposed. There was a hummingbird in each of the floral arrangements on the tables, as well. Table cards What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Each table was named after a place we visited as a couple. Each card had a picture of the location (found online) and a photo of us at that spot. This is the sweetheart table, named the Hollywood sign because of that location's special significance to us (we're wearing helmets because we had gone on a horseback ride there). Tables What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Each placesetting had a small jar of South Jersey peach jelly that my parents made. We decorated them with white and pink cloth, green ribbon, a Martha Stewart print-your-own sticker saying what it was, and a silvery charm that said "thank you." My hubby and I made the menus to match the rest of the wedding stationary. I made 130 or so tissue paper flowers to use as napkin rings - I got the idea from a post on YumSugar. Table What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! This is how the tables looked. There were three colors of tissue paper flowers - white, light pink and dark pink. My favorite wedding photo What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! It rained all day and sprinkled during the ceremony, but thankfully it cleared up after the ceremony just in time for the pictures. We had fallen in love with the beautiful garden at our venue and were so grateful that the weather didn't spoil our chance to use it for our photos.
