Trees and family made a heart warming Wedding and Reception!
Tom and Susan picked a tree theme, originating from a family book called the "Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein... Greens and Whites were the order of the day!
To their surprise, her MOH brought the book and everyone signed it! (They didn't find this out until the next day after the wedding!)
We decorated the arch with actual tree branches on the sides and add flowers on top. I wove tiny white lights later in the afternoon so when the sun set, the tree came to life! Down the aisle,
we added branches to the chairs with floral bouquets that were later used for the cocktail table centerpieces.
Her cake stand was a tree trunk we cut and Tom carved their initials in it! It was the perfect
accessory that displayed his handiwork!
The tables weren't neglected, we cut wood "wafers" and Susan and Tom painted table numbers!! How about that for a great accent!!
Their guest book table was a wonderful display of family pictures from both sides. The frames were different but the content was endearing. It warmed the guests hearts from the beginning. We added three potted trees to hang the seating cards from and wow, a great display!! (picture taken before seating cards were displayed) For her guest book, Susan chose a beautiful tree without leaves. The idea was that every guest would place their finger print on the artwork in different green colors. The end result was a hit and ready for the frame!
Bring warmth to your event by adding a favorite personal item. It's fun and it's worth it!!
p.s. The photographers, Kim Robbins and Jeray Lynn Photography pictures will be amazing, these are the pictures I took while setting up. Check back for more professional ones!!!
