A Beautiful Summer Wedding


     For the first time since September 11, 2001, I flew. Now I haven't been avoiding the whole flying thing, I've just been so busy having babies, and who wants to fly with a baby?! The perfect opportunity for my maiden voyage {since 9/11} was my beautiful cousins wedding out in Boston. It only took 15 minutes after my plane left for my husband to say to the kids, "Mom's never leaving us again!", which made the trip totally worth it! :)

     My cousin Naomi had so many cute details in her wedding that I wanted to share some of them with you.
First off, the flowers were gorgeous!



     Here's my mom and I just before the ceremony:


     Her programs were a thoughtful addition considering the heat/humidity/and lack of air conditioning. They were fans and let me tell you they were worth their weight in gold on that hot sticky day! {It was seriously the hottest wedding I've ever been too ~ and Naomi, you can take that any way you want! ;)}



Another cute detail were these vintage hankies that she had out in the lobby.





     Her "theme" if you will was birch. As in birch branches. They held special significance for her as her now hubby had carved their initials in birch at the location he proposed to her. This was incorporated throughout the country club where there reception took place. Here are a few examples:






     I am all about using texture in my decorating as a way of making your home feel homey and I love how the use of texture in something large scale like a wedding adding warmth as well. I'm even crazy about the contrast between the rustic birch and the elegant flowers. Oh so yummy!

    Here's the board that she made that had all of the place card's for the table seating:




     Now don't mind the reflection of my mother's dress in the picture frame, but isn't that a cute pic? Naomi also made all of her favors which was the most delicious caramel popcorn! I may or may not have grabbed a few extra! ;)

     Here they used larger birch branches in these arrangements that were also on the platform during the ceremony.




     It was a beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple.  I'm so wishing I was getting married again so I could use some of these ideas! {Just kidding honey!}


Congratulations Keith and Naomi! Love you!
