made with love by my incredibly talented mother
the bridesmaid dresses
the only requirement: they had to be yellow. two were handmade by moms, two were from modcloth.com, and two were from forever 21.
jeff's belonged to his maternal grandfather.
mine belonged to jeff's great-grandmother (married in 1902).
go on, check it out!
the wishing stones
while we exchanged vows, each guest held a small stone in their hand and took a moment to silently send well wishes and happy thoughts to us. after the ceremony, the guests put their stones in a pretty glass vase that we now display in our home. every day, it reminds us of the vows we took and the love that was present on our wedding day.
homemade jam (thanks to our parents for putting in the long hours!): strawberry, blackberry, raspberry and triple berry
october calls for pumpkin everything. so we served pumpkin, hazelnut, carrot and tollhouse chocolate chip wedding cake. something for everybody!
the star of the show
baby evelyn (10 months)
