A few last minute details to take care of at the church .... gift table as you come in one door of church
BreAnne set out gifts for groomsmen and bridesmaids - the rest of us took pictures....worked on flowers etc.
This table was for the sand ceremony - this was the right side of the platform
Three separate lives about to be combined
Out of order but this is what it looked like when they were done - 3 empty bottles (Dakota joined them) and one new family. They have a frame they will pour the sand into later - but it would have taken forever for the sand to sift down if they'd used it in the ceremony.
Good job Jared
Stacia's hair - didn't Arielle do a great job? So glad Shelby thought to get a photo of it. The rest of these decoration photos were taken by Shelby.
They had a friend, Sue Beaird, make this sweet cake...to feed a crowd and stay in budget they bought the rest of the cake from Costco.
Hung on pews
It was hard to get a photo of the entire platform....but here is the center....
This door was perfect!
In the reception area
Guest book - they borrowed an idea from Cy and Shelby - guests signed their names on their birthdays.
A dear family friend loaned us the antique suitcases, the chandelier hanging from the lace platform, the cake sign, the door and a couple of other things. The suitcases and lace etc were on the platform - but not opened like this....the picket fences were some BreAnne has used in VBS and for various church functions.
There were keys scattered around - the significance will become apparent when I share their vows
The groom and groomsmen wore converse and black fedoras
The boys were ushers - not sure we got a photo of all four of them....but I know we have photos here are there of them.
Finally, time to get ready for photos and ceremony - Stacia wasn't quite sure why there was so much noise from the women upstairs. (Taken with a cell phone. LOL)
One groomsmen and bridesmaid brought munchies.....
I didn't get a lot of photos upstairs. We were busy. We had great fun. I enjoyed getting to know BreAnne's friends in such an intimate setting.
Dakota was Izaak's best man.
Living all of life before the face of God...
