Want Details? Here you go:

Our Theme: Fall Seattle Wedding -- a bit of vintage, a bit of rustic, a bit of class

Color Palette: It's Fall Y'AllΒ = Lime Green, Chartreuse, Chocolate Brown, Latte, Cranberry & Mustard

Guest Book: We did something slightly different; we had Seattle postcards that people could sign with a message or advice. Then people could toss them into the little, vintage suitcase to "send them" to us.

The Guest

Gift Table: We had another vintage piece, a bird cage, for people to place cards.

The Gift/Card Table

Pie Table: I got a Pepsi crate from Pottery Barn, a few baskets, a Crate and Barrel pie/cake pedestal, made a PIE banner, a cute little pie sign from Etsy, little blue birds (from Grandma Ruth), etc etc.

Feeding the Pie

Escort/Favor Table: Aren't we smart...making the favors dual purpose! We got the caramels from JonBoy, a local company that visits the farmers markets (mainly the Ballard one we love so much), and put them in small paper bags, then tied it in a bow with twine alongside a little red mail tag that had the guest's name and table number.

The Favors and Escort Cards

Something Borrowed, Blue, Old and New: All on my ear. Yes, all of these things on my ears. I started with my the earrings my mom wore for her wedding (pearls), then I added the dangling crystals. I borrowed my mom's little blue sapphire earrings for my second earrings.








You know what else is blue, old, and borrowed? The Bible and bookmark that Nada leant me. The Bible was Josh's grandmother's Bible. And the bookmark was handmade by Nada.
