From the bride, Beth: We wanted our wedding to be a celebration of both our love for each other and the love we have for our family and friends. We are so blessed to have an incredible group of people in our lives which is why we wanted to include so many of them in the wedding.

Daniel and I spent our entire engagement designing the wedding. I am fortunate to have just married an incredible graphic designer and Daniel designed our save the dates, invitations, programs, menus, beer favor labels, cocktail menu, dessert table signage, etc. We collected turquoise Fenton hobnail from the 1950’s that was used in the centerpieces and to hold our main wedding cake, this was the inspiration for our use of aqua in the wedding.

I brewed all of the beers that we gave away as wedding favors, and Daniel and I dipped them in wax and labeled them. I made the cupcakes and custard tartlets for the dessert table. I also made the bridesmaid’s hair pieces, rosettes for their belts, adorned their vintage purses, boutonnieres for the groom and our fathers,the rosettes for the napkins, table runner for the dessert table, and the ring book, amongst other things. This wedding was definitely a labor of love! My very good friends of The High Five Factory made the backdrop for the photo booth, all of the instant photos guests took throughout the night were incredible!

    Love the colors, haven’t seen b&w with a pop of color in awhile, classy and fun! Her hair piece is pretty too.

    I love that they paid attention to details, like with the french macarons and the converse shoes. Stringing the photo booth pictures is also such a great idea. That light blue milk glass vase is also freaking Amazing! I would so buy that. So I’m available. Just to let you know.. ;)
