A + C's wedding

This past weekend we attended a cousin's wedding in Brooklyn.  It was a wonderfully intimate and elegant affair.  The bride and her mother's touches were everywhere.  The lovely bride altered her own dress and both ladies worked together to bake and decorate the cake and put together all the floral arrangements.

Here's what we wore to the wedding:  (We took these photos beforehand because it would be nearly impossible to take photos while entertaining an active almost-two-year old during the event.)

 And here are photos taken before the event:
Something blue

Wedding cake made by the bride's mom

Can you believe these flowers aren't real?  They're edible and made by hand.


My small DIY contribution- Handwritten escort cards

Wall decorations at the reception

Congratulations A and C!   Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day.

  1. Everyone looks so lovely. The bride was beautiful,as always. The cakes looked too nice to eat. The bride's mom did a wonderful job on the cakes, flowers and decor. Wish we were there to witness the occasion. The little boy with the mohawk hair was so cute.

  4. Thanks guys for your compliments. The bride peeks in on the blog sometimes, so I know that she'll be tickled pink by your comments.

    (Can I get a job as a professional wedding guest? Then I can just go around oohing and ahhing at everyone's ideas and creativity.)
