Joan and Steve have floated into wedded bliss. Joan has sailed all of her life, even traveling abroad to compete for her university team! So it made complete sense that they choose a nautical theme for their ocean side wedding. May their marriage be ‘anchored’ by humor and commitment and their love be as wide as the sea.
The image from their invite that was my inspiration…
Lots and lots of guests for lots and lots of fun.
“As I recall, I think, we both kinda liked it.” What’s not to like about the wedding of Emilie and Dave. Beautiful bride, handsome groom, happy family and friends. That dance floor was definitely a hopping place (maybe we were all hopped up on cookie sugar?) ! A Tiffany blue theme popped up throughout the wedding, including in their wedding favors. Here are the designs that Em and Dave picked:
The table setting…
These sweet cookies were for the children attending their wedding. Alex (of Alex and Ashley fame) is an incredible, uber talented graphic designer who whipped up a beautiful floral, rustic theme for their wedding info site. I referenced those florals and golden touch he added when creating their cookies. Did I mention how Amazing and Awesome “A & A” is to cookify?
We joined Todd and Hannah for a weekend that was so incredible it defies words. Their rustic chic wedding combined their love of greenery (okay, maybe Hannah’s love) and the beauty of the area the Hannah calls her childhood home. First, the botanical cookies…
Their first date involved hot dogs; apparently an impressive amount of hot dogs… Todd likes them plain.
Here are the welcome bag cookies; they wanted to represent the intertwined relationship coming initially from two different states.
The ampersand vine (keeping that rustic floral theme)…
Caroline and Donnell had a fairy tale romance so their wedding favors had to step it up to shine like this beautiful couple!! Caroline chose two different designs; both had parchment colored background and a white floral to mimic their invitations. She couldn’t decide between “Mr & Mrs” or “hello LOVE” so why not have both!
Mr & Mrs:
Hello Love (based on stencil by Killer Zebras!):
They quietly became Mr. and Mrs. and held a small reception of immediate family and closest friends afterward. Since her business is running a gym, their cookies had a few “gym dandy” word puns… Who could resist “Oh My Quad, they’re Married” or “And they Lifted happily ever after”????
These Gatsby wedding favors were a cinch to create, thanks to fabulous stencils from Melanie at Killer Zebras! Black and gold were the colors of the day.
Rokem gold mixed with water was painted at a diagonal directly on to the cookie. Then the white and black royal icings were piped on and left to dry.
I covered the white icing with a Stenci-Blocker from Stencibelle and airbrushed Amerimist Gold sheen using a KZ stencil.
The geometric heart cookie cutter is from Cari at Sinful Cutters.
