One of the young guys Bob works with got married on Saturday afternoon and we had the privilege of attending the wedding. They had a country type theme, and used snow and trees as part of the decorations. The invitations were on dark blue paper with black tree silhouettes and snow falling. The front of the church had small trees with sparkly white lights. Here's a few pictures from the day.
This sign was at the back of the church where we came in.
This was a unique way of lighting the room that was used for the reception. This is a large tree branch, strung with lights and hung upside down!
They had 4 of them hung up and it looked nice when you could see the whole thing. Bob said they had to get a lift into the building to hang them up. :)
They used stamped pieces of wood to number the tables. They also had pieces of wood with slits cut into them, where the put name cards to show the seating arrangements.
Here's one of the centerpieces.
We had chili, baked potatoes, cornbread, soup and salad to eat. Then, instead of cake, we had cheesecake!
Aren't these beautiful? Such a variety of flavors and all were made by the bride and her mom!
What a nice evening it was. I like the way people personalize their weddings now!
