A Summer WeddingApril 22nd, 2009
With summer approaching I thought it would be fun the share some details from my sister’s 2006 wedding. My sister Allison and her husband Ryan found an outstanding outdoor location to host their celebration just outside of Bellingham, Washington. This beautiful natural environment surrounded by mountains created the perfect setting for their rustic northwest wedding.
I simply adored all the details that my sister incorporated into their event. She made dozens of pinwheels which were placed throughout the grounds. The tables were decorated with handmade paper bouquets and the table cloths were embellished with buttons! If that weren’t enough, the favors were miniature mason jars filled with homemade strawberry jam. She topped these off with an assortment of fabric squares and custom made ribbon with their names and the wedding date.
Every aspect of their wedding had a personal touch and really made it a joy to to be a part of. Our parents made a full dinner for the 100+ guests. Two of their dear friends provided homemade beer, another grew the flowers and created each of the bouquets for the wedding party. Ryan’s father took the wedding photos, another friend made their delicious cake and I designed the invitations and details.
This was a beautiful wedding that reflected Allison and Ryan’s taste perfectly, I’m so glad I could be a part of their celebration!
