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!!

Isn’t this broach bouquet stunning?
Rhiannon gathered her grandmother’s lovely lacquer broach collection, plus some brooches and clip on earrings (and even a ring or two) from her mom, both her grandmothers, her great Auntie Helen and both of her husband Bill’s grandmothers, plus a few to fill it out purchased on E-Bay. Her florist then attached them to real flower stems.
Rhiannon has just the sweetest things to say about her stunning bouquet:
“According to my bathroom scale, the bouquet weighs 3.2 pounds. Which totally explains why my arm ached the day after my wedding. It currently sits on my mantle and and it makes me smile whenever I see it. I love that I have a bouquet that I can keep forever. Also, I know my Grandma would have loved to know her brooches were a part of our big day.”
