A Beautiful Wedding!

My family all got the joy of being in a wedding party. We celebrated with our best friends Paul & Melissa as they became a "member of the wedded bliss club". It was a beautiful fall wedding and the weather turn out to be perfect. Rhys was a perfect flower girl, especially for being only 15 months old. She did a great job. It was a long day for all of us, but one that we will treasure the memories of.

Now weeks later I am still enjoying the memories of the wedding as I work on my wedding gift for the Bride and Groom, a guest book. Now I know what everyone is thinking. Shouldn't I have finished it before the wedding. No, this is a special guest book. Before the wedding the Bride and Groom chose to have names for their tables rather then numbers. They named each table after a country that they had visited on way of their many travels. I volunteered to make table cards for the tables with the country's name and a picutre of them while they were their in that country. The Bride and Groom loved the table cards so much that they wanted to have a way to treasure them afterwards. So I suggested to put them in their guest book. At the wedding each guest signed a buisness card with their name and their best wishes to the Bride and Groom. I then went around a took a group shot of the table once everyone was seated. So in their Guest book will be the table card, a 5x7 group shot of the table and the signed cards surrounding the photo. I think I have my work cut out for me, but I will enjoy every minute of it. Here is a photo of the table card at the wedding. The table card is a 6x8 tent card. The base colors of the card are chocolate and burgundy. The title was cut on the cricut using the Lyrical Letters Font in a chocolate brown cardstock. I then glued them onto a Vanilla strip and rounded the corners. The vanilla strip at the bottom is a description of what is in the photo. On the other side of the tent card is information for the guest telling them that a donation was made to the Cancer Society in lieu of favors. I must say I got a lot of compliments on them the night of the wedding and I am pretty proud of them.
