Lavender and Lace

I really regret not getting some pictures of the finished dress! We ended up being so busy around the time of the wedding, but I was able to snag a few pictures taken at the wedding.

Chad created her beautiful bouquet using White Roses, Chrysanthemums, Queen Anne's Lace, Ranunculus, and bits of greenery. I think he did an amazing job!

Chad and I were also in charge of the food and decorations (Chad had lots of help with the food from his siblings, he couldn't have done it without them!).

We were going for a rustic, garden party sort of feel for the reception. Here are just a few pictures. We created the tablecloth runners using burlap and lace. We also added an antique mercury glass look to the taller center vases.  Here's a tutorial.

We served Boursin sandwiches with ham and pears, a salad, lavender lemonade, tres leches, and chocolate mousse. The cake was a carrot cake (grooms favorite) with a cream cheese frosting and some purple peonies made out of sugar.

Here is a picture of my sweet Madelaine (in lace) and my cute little niece Halle (in blue) after getting ready for the reception. They had fun getting all done up together!
