My mom and step-grandmother were nice enough to iron every chair cover and sash before the wedding.
I made half of our reception centerpieces. The day before the wedding I bought roses from Sam’s Club and took off the petals so they could be placed inside the hurricanes.
The other half of the centerpieces were arrangements of hydrangeas, spray roses, and hypericum berries, which were made by our florist/day-of wedding coordinator.
The Kate Spade Mr. and Mrs. toasting flutes were a bridal shower gift, as were the cute bride and groom flutes.
I made all the props for the DIY photo booth. We purchased a photo booth software program and ran it on a laptop computer. A flat screen computer monitor, webcam, and photo printer were also used. Two duplicate photo strips printed onto one photo paper, so the guests cut down the middle. They taped one strip into a scrapbook and took the other with them.

After the wedding, I designed our thank you cards. I had them printed onto Vistaprint postcards.
We I wrote the thank you note on the back of the postcards, slipped them into envelopes, and mailed them off.
I hope enjoyed this series about our wedding!
