My friend Kelly recently tied the knot and she did a super fun board depicting all of the places people had traveled from to attend her wedding. She had to do an inset around New Jersey and New York, where she and her fiance are from.
Do you see that string going allll the way across the map to Hong Kong?! I loved that she also included her honeymoon in Bora Bora. It was a very sweet way to recognize how much she appreciated how far everyone had come for her wedding, but what a labor intensive project–to write out every guest’s name! She even tied in her Kelly green and hot pink wedding colors!
Since the bride’s name is Kelly and she went to Notre Dame the green works on many levels.
Love the green suspenders!
Although the wedding invites weren’t minted, a lot of the other paper items were! The shower invites were: float + here comes by float paperie and the save the dates were elegant year by Annie Clark.
Kelly’s dress and veil were so elegant. Here her sister, and her matron-of-honor, puts on the groom’s gift–a beautiful pearl bracelet. Kate at 8+ months pregnant was my hero… the ever energetic bridesmaid!
The happy couple with their adorable flower girl Rose–Kate’s daughter and Kell’s niece. A big congrats to the super fun couple!!

One of my oldest friends (dating back to our grammar school St. Andrew’s) got married last weekend and her wedding had such pretty details. I loved her cabbage arrangements.
She hung little lanterns in branches for the other half of the centerpieces.
Red Pepper Jelly was the favor–she is quite the cook and made it all herself!
She had the foresight to have letterpressed tags made to match the invites. Talk about ambitious!

Now I’m sure you’re dying to see the bride behind all this handiwork…
I loved her all white bouquet. So elegant! After the ceremony, Jackie traded in her oh-so-fabulous poofy veil for a fascinator–so very Kate M. of her, don’t you think?
Best wishes to Jackie and Steven!
