Our Wedding Adventure: Details, Details and more Details

It is amazing how much time I put into arranging little details but they made our wedding ours so it was well worth it.  I spent so much time looking at flowers; bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces and on and on!
Top left clockwise: Bridesmaids bouquets, boutonnieres, altar pieces, and my bouquet.  I was able to give Ann (from Dedham Flower Shoppe) our colors and preferences and she did an amazing job putting it all together.
 I was able to pull up my Pinterest Wedding Board to show her things I liked and she transformed them to fit our style.  She designed these pew pieces to fit both the end of the pews and the railing at the reception.
This pin belonged to my great-aunt Kay, it was a great way to to remember her.  My Cape-Cod bracelet was a high school graduation from my aunt Betsy.  I've worn that claddagh ring since Nana gave it to me when I was 13; it's a little worse for wear but I love it.
I designed and printed our ceremony programs, the trifold programs were from Staples.  It was super easy, I downloaded a template and plugged in the details then ran them through my printer.
Tables, my mom specifically requested those chairs.  The 4x6 frames I picked up at Michaels with lots of coupons then printed the numbers on white card stock. I spent some serious time on Ebay hunting down hobnail milk-glass vases and after emailing with a seller he hunted more down for me and sold them to me at cost!  
I also bought the same frames as 8x10 for photos of my grandparents, my parents, Bruce's parents and my great-grandparents. (clockwise from top-left) Some of them were at the table with the guest book and some were on the fireplace mantel. 
I think my mom picked this up at Home Goods? Then Ann supplied the ribbon.

Escort card holders were sail boats and fish to represent our lakeside location.  My mom's cousin John did the calligraphy.
Champagne flutes, I nursed that baby all the way through dinner!  
When we snuck out to take photos on the dock we had a very cute audience.
Simple, beautiful and delicious!

So many little things that made our wedding so special.  I have to give most of the credit away to my mom who organized it all and did so much work.  My mom's cousin John who came early (a week!) to help with all the details and the calligraphy. And last but not least Ann who designed all the beautiful flowers!
