There were SO many little details throughout our ceremony and reception that it is hard to point out them all but here are just a FEW….
Bridemaid’s bouquets of Hydrangea….
My bouquet of all Peonies along with a couple lucky charms. The button is from my late Grandpa Kelly’s Merchant Marine uniform. I had one button on my bouquet and I gave my dad a handkerchief with the other one attached.
What sold me on the dress…..
Program for the ceremony…..
Champagne for the trolley….
Placecards. This was one of my favorite details from the wedding. We named each table a street that meant something to us and as you can see from the front, people were directed to each table. Once you opened the card, there was an explanation of that table. For instance…Maureen Kelly – Ault View Avenue. You would open the card and it would say “Where he proposed…” or “Where they met…”, etc. Also inside this little card was a hand written note from Jordan and I to that guest. YES, it took us forever but we wanted each person to know that it meant a great deal to us that they were there.
Our main table ran the length of the room and included about 35 guests: all of which were bridesmaids, groomsmen, readers, etc. Jordan and I sat at the head of the table and it was such an amazing view looking at our friends along the table.
I had this wooden W made for the mantel at Hyde Park. It now hangs on one of the walls in our family room. It is a constant reminder of the fun night!
This silver trophy has been used at my aunt, uncles, and my parent’s wedding. It is a Fehr family tradition to have it at your reception. Isn’t it beautiful?
Our little cake. Neither of us are fans of cake – except Angel Food. We cut this little cake and then each table was served their own individual cake.
Our candy bar…on steroids. I had a love/hate relationship with this candy bar. It was a LOT of work to get together AND the few extra lbs I gained before the wedding were because of it. It seemed to be a hit though! We asked each one of our family members (25+ total) what their favorite candy was and included a jar with their name on it. For our deceased grandparents, we included their favorite candy and it was a great way to pay tribute to them.
Yes, I put this together. Thank you, Pinterest.
And a beautiful shot of our rings….
