It’s All In The Details

I love going to weddings! As a lover-of-crafts, I immensely enjoy looking at all the details. Most of the time, these things just get overlooked. Not I. I look for the tiniest details because I know that the bride actually thought about these things (yes, from experience).

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of going to my friend Joe and Rachel’s wedding in Fairfax, California. It was an outdoors ceremony and reception, all held at Deer Park Villa. I’m definitely a fan of outdoor weddings – I had one myself! I love the fresh air, the shrubbery, and I especially love to see how the bride and groom put the garden theme together.

Me & my eyelashesReady for the wedding! I never get dolled up anymore, therefore a selfie was a must. Plus, I usually suck at putting on eyelashes, but I did it right this time, so I’m showing them off!

Wedding CeremonyThis is the backdrop for the bride and groom. I love the romantic feel. I also adore those white buckets that hold the aisle flowers.

Names
I really like the candle holders that we scattered around the venue.

Smores
An SF favorite! This was actually my first time having an It’s-It (ice cream sandwiched between two oatmeal cookies then dipped in dark chocolate) How come I haven’t had this amazingness before?

TablesThe centerpieces were lovely. I noticed that some of the flowers were even sprayed with gold! 

Glassware
I think that glassware, with candlelight during nighttime is stunning. Am I the only one?

SmoresIn addition to the wedding cake, there were make your own smores. It was getting a bit chilly at night so this was perfect.

Photobooth
And of course, MG and I utilized the photo booth.

On another note:  I’m cat-sitting my sister-in-law’s cats! 3 cats in one household is definitely a cat lady’s dream! Look at these cuties.

Cat WeekendYou obviously know the first one. It’s Chubs! Then meet Lily (she’s sitting so pretty). Finally, meet Olive (Chubs and her get along so well).

What did you do this weekend?
