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!):
Tori’s gown was structured and classic with just a touch of bling. Perfectly and incredibly appropriate. So, true to Tori and Byron, the wedding/reception was equally classy, with all of the fabulous (and I do mean fabulous) details taken care of. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!! The food was as plentiful as it was incredible and the dancing nonstop! I was pretty much blown away by the whole day/event. The photographer was Pat Robinson of Philly; can’t say enough positives about his work!
Our girls. The youngest, the maid of honor, and Tori, the BRIDE!!!
MMB cookie favors were served as parting gifts. A play on the Philly (“knot”) pretzel.
The groom and bride each got a cookie box of their own.
And the cookies that went into the Philly themed welcome bags…
The City of Brotherly Love’s (Philadelphia’s) perhaps best-known landmark is LOVE itself — the Robert Indiana sculpture is in John F. Kennedy Plaza, not far from City Hall. As an odd side bar, LOVE was installed in 1976 but briefly snatched away in 1978; popular demand brought it back to where it stands today.
Since the wedding was in Philly (even though ordered and picked up in Buffalo), all was right in the karma world.
Wanted to make a “storyboard” for my niece and her rustic wedding.
Base icing for heart shaped tree slice and other cookies completed.
Next time I will stamp the bride and groom name and add their wedding date. Always room for improvements…
Little grapevine wreath.
Pinecones with dimension.
Ready for approval. Or not?
Congratulations Laurie and Tony on the start of your marriage! The fleur de lis symbol has special meaning for them so it’s a perfect match for a wedding reception favor! Watch as young love blooms.
