Had the pleasure of being part of D&A’s wedding early November this year! Been a while since I last did weddings and I was just reminded of how much job I find in doing them, having the honor of blessing a couple on one of the biggest events in their lives 🙂
Both Darren & Alison are one of the most loving couple towards others I know 🙂 Never afraid to be themselves, having no reserve in loving people; they have such gentle spirits. And by bringing these 2 whole people together, I know that they are going to be such a power couple in blessing the people around them!
Didn’t really get a chance to snap a proper picture with the newly weds 😦
Leading up to the wedding, the boyfriend did a pre-wedding video for them as well. A short video for them to share their story and how Jesus really divinely brought them together, leading up to their wedding. I tagged along and took some pictures while they sweat in the sun hee!
Okay back to the decor of the wedding, Alison chose a dusty blue/grey look to adorn the reception area. Went flower- shopping and here’re some of my loots:
Some really beautiful Eucalyptus Nuts. They are just absolutely fascinating to look at! Those little caps are filled with the fluffy blooms! Some of the nuts were almost blooming and they looked like they were bursting out in abundance!
Also bought some soft cream roses and (my favorite of all time) dried lavender.
Washi-taped some paper cups in all sorts of different patterns, and filled them up with popcorn! It was a hit with the kids 😉 Wonderful idea by the bride.
Did up some alphabet- separators for the place cards as well!
And a dreamy photobooth area with helium balloons and fairy lights!!! Throughout the wedding lunch, when I cam out to keep the decor, there were toddlers playing happily with the left over helium balloons! Note to self- balloons are an awesome idea.
Besides the decor, the bride Alison also placed a customized order of handmade boutonniere for the groom and his groomsmen!
Again, made use of mainly blue, peach and an ivory satin for these creations 😉 Made 2 different designs to play things up!
Super happy that I made these babies! All in 1 night! Prior to this project I was just having the longest hiatus in making anything! And I didn’t realize how much I missed making them till that night 🙂 Really am so thankful for this gift.
What a beautiful thing this union was 🙂 and how blessed I am to have been a part of it. Bring’em weddings on!!!
