More Wedding Details

We planted hundreds of white Pansies and Impatiens to create the aisle. If you ever need best quality garden flowers for you wedding~ Eve's Garden, just a few miles past Millersville in Central Manor is the place to get them. Eva Diller, the owner has the healthiest most beautiful garden flowers. She will custom fill your garden pots or grow flats and flats of the flowers you need.
Fruit, cheese and bread sticks butlered in wine glasses. Jessie's Grammy Rosie and I handmade 300 chocolate cigars wrapped in foil and finished with a personalized cigar band. They were displayed on a table in cedar cigar boxes of all types with personalized yellow match boxes. An appropriate favor since their name is 'Smoker', huh?




Jessie found a vintage -type initial pin and some blingy brooches to imbed in the buttercream layers.
Bands of sugar crystals were at the base of each layer. Rosie Rohrer asked her to bring a paint sample of the color she wanted the cake to be, and she made it a perfect match!

The fantastic catering staff is serving dinner in the 'kids tent'. They had very their own menu of chicken fingers, tater tots, mac 'n cheese, applesauce and juice. They loved it! They could color, wiggle and have fun while mom and dad had dinner under the big tent. After they were finished they had a 'Bug Hunt' with their favors of bug nets and bug boxes, a candy scramble and a scavenger hunt. Then they posed for pictures with the banner that said ........."and they lived happily ever after'.
When asked what their favorite part of the wedding was, Asher and Sophia said" gettin' babysitted!!" A zillion thank -you's to Stephanie Fisher and her assistant for the babysitting services. She did a terrific job keeping the little guys safe and very, very happy!

Call me for her contact info. if you need someone to make it extra fun for your little wedding guests!


Strings of paper flowers hung from the top of the kid's tent. After dinner they are working on making a special book for the bride and groom, which was so cute.




The special tent ceiling lighting with the leaf pattern similar to the invitations, and entrance fabric draping was done by the crew from http://www.shumakerpdt.com/

They also worked out the mechanics for my hanging tulips over the favor table. They are the ones to talk to for all of your sound and special effects needs. They also project light patterns on the dance floor. What they did really made the difference between a nice tent and a beautiful tent! And speaking of tents: http://www.tentrentalservice.com/ owner Ron Sparks was terrific. They have beautiful sheer sides and pole covers that really make the tent look finished.

This was the seating card design that we came up with to keep extra paper clutter off of the tables. The patterned paper was strung on colorful ribbons and hung from wrought iron rods and hooks and anchored in the ground. This hung outside of the tent entrance.

We preferred long tables and natural wood chairs rather than white ones for the outdoor setting.
Matthew Tennison took 777 pictures, and I'll never post them all on the blog, but seriously we couldn't have been any more delighted with his work.
Choosing the right photographer for your wedding .........priceless!!!
