The Details.

We've got our pictures back from our photographer, and I'd love to share some of the little details with you. Chris and I spent endless hours making things for our do, and we were really happy with the results.

The linen hankie that I embroidered for Chris.

My bouquet. I couldn't have loved it more. Made by Alison.

Our handmade invites.

And programs.

I sewed and embroidered a stack of flags that people could wave at the end of our ceremony. It was one of my favourite details.

I wrote out everyone's escort envelope, which included hand-written notes to each person inside.
Table numbers!

Hand-stamped ribbons shared the evening's menu.

Beautiful flowers in vases wrapped in baker's twine secured with tiny toy mushrooms. Each table was lined with a runner made by my mother.

Some of our childhood relics displayed.

One of our many vignettes. This one was made with tiny mushrooms and figurines riding bikes.

We strung an excerpt of I Like You (which was read during our ceremony) from baker's twine in our bar area.

Another vignette! In a tiny belljar!

Handmade flags attached to straws. We figured people liked them as they were drinking their beer from them.

Enjoy! Crafts are fun, right?
