Wedding Thursday, anyone??
I just wanted to share a few details of my wedding day.
You know, all those tiny little details that I sweated over for an entire year...yeah, I at least owed those details one little blog posting!
Unity Candles and Table:
My florist designed this gorgeous spray of flowers for our unity table. Isn't it amazing!??
I was absolutely blown away with our flowers!!
Unity candles and candle stands: Michaels
The ceremony aisle was lined with eight tall glass cylinders that had curly willow in them...and they were topped with a dish that held floating candles.
There was also a program (DIY) placed in every chair.
Flower girl basket + throws:
My flower girl LOVED her flower girl basket. It was white, silk and had a gorgeous bow on the side and "And they lived happily ever after" was embroidered on the side. So sweet!!
Flower girl basket: c/o Beaucoup
Instead of tossing flower petals, I had my flower girl toss little paper hearts that were three different shades of purple (to match our colors). I especially loved it because petals cost around $25, and these little hearts cost me less than $6 on Etsy.
Our welcome table had a framed sign, a floating candle in a gorgeous monogrammed etched vase and a Cincinnati coffee table book for guests to sign!

Our place cards were displayed on two large shutters. I hand wrote each card using a white pen on black card paper, just like I did the invitation envelopes, so it all had a consistent black and white theme.
The gift table was complete with framed photos of us throughout the years. A bird cage for guests to put their cards, and a sign....that CV made.
I asked him to help me make a few signs, and this is what I got. Haha.
I chose three different centerpieces for our reception and I LOVED them all.
1. Submerged orchids topped with a floating candle
2. Open floral arrangements that matched the wedding bouquets
3. Floating candles in tall glass cylinders, on top of mirrors.
All centerpieces had tons of small candles surrounding it, so it definitely gave off a very romantic feel!
Each place setting also had a menu, that matched my invitations and programs perfectly!
We had TWO delicious cakes.
A three-tiered white chocolate romance cake. Ahhhhmazing!!!
And an opera creme (chocolate) cake. Ahhhhmazing!!!
And a gorgeous swarovski crystal monogrammed cake topper: c/o wedding cuts
And notice the purple lighting???
I hired an amazing lighting company to make the entire room purple! :)
I displayed the sparklers so everyone would know to stay until midnight! :)
I just used a large vase, that I already owned, and made a DIY sign that matched all the others.
What do you think of all my details???
