Hello Yellow - Six Fun Details About our Wedding

Pin It!
Soon the REALLY good pictures will be available from the photographer, so I'll share another wedding post when they are ready. This time, I'd like to share a few details that we incorporated into our wedding for extra meaning.


1) The Backdrop for our Line - Here in Utah,  we  have a tradition of lining up the wedding party so that we can greet each guest. Kaela wanted something pretty behind us & we agreed that vintage doors would look nice. Luckily our cousin saved the doors from Jeff's great grandmother & grandfather's home. {Thank you Melanie!} Some of them were hinged together & one had a stand for it. I loved incorporating them into our wedding. It felt like our family who came before us was sharing the day with us & it was a great "something old" for the wedding.

It was only $23 on Ebay & it comes in LOTS of colors. {CLICK HERE}

2) A Gift for the Mother of the Bride - Jeff gave Julie a handkerchief which had the following message stamped onto it. 


3) An Ice Cream Cart - Both the bride & groom & their families love ice cream, so we served five different flavors. It was a big hit. I made this fun 36"x48"poster for the ice cream cart & I paid about $42 to have it printed on thick photo paper. Please email me if you would like the pdf. 

4) Sibling Tribute at the Dinner - This was SO adorable & I only wish I had a video recording of it. Kaela's siblings gave Jeff a survival kit for being married to their sister. The kit included things like a check for a million bucks & a brush to scrub the dishes really well {the way Kaela likes them} before putting them in the dishwasher. It was hilarious!

5) A Nod to the Parents - Our nephew Kevin & his wife Trisha also did this at their wedding & I thought it was such a beautiful gesture. Kaela displayed a photo of her parents on their wedding day & one of my husband & I on ours at the reception. 


6) DIY -  Of course we had fun making some of the things we used in the wedding. I painted a table bright yellow & we used it for the guest book. I found some gorgeous bright yellow fabric on sale & made our own table squares. And we made our own favors for the dinner. 
PS - The Old Meeting House hosted our dinner & we couldn't have been happier. Our friends raved about the food, the surroundings were beautiful & the service was excellent. After researching lots of other places, I also felt the prices were very reasonable. PLUS we had a problem crop up at the last minute & "Janie" completely saved my bacon. I highly recommend them! {CLICK HERE for more info}
