Okay guys, here are the pics from my wedding that I have been promising you for so long! Let me start by saying everything went so well. Well… except for the unplanned weather. We were suppose to get a dusting of snow. Instead we got like 6 inches. It made for beautiful pictures but not so beautiful driving. Luckily everyone made it safely and the wedding turned out beautifully!
The colors for the wedding were red, white, and black.Therefore, the something blue did not exactly fit into the color scheme. To solve this problem, I did blue rhinestones with our initials on the bottom. I also added a little something special to my bouquet. It was a locket which had pictures of our belated grandparents inside. It really meant a lot to us to include them in the ceremony. We also had memorial candles at the ceremony that our mothers lit before they took their seats. We also took these candles to the reception to sit on the head table.
The church was so beautiful that we only did a few decorations. We both thought that the architecture in the church was too pretty to cover up!
We did two different centerpieces at the tables. Half had the floating candles and the other half had a simple display of red roses in a square cube base. Instead of wedding favors we made a donation to The American Cancer Society and to the Heart Foundation in honor of our grandparents.
