a mid-summer's day wedding

In celebration of my anniversary week I am also sharing some of the cute details that made our wedding "us".

My wonderful mother-in-law Debbie made these beautiful heart shaped cookies as gifts for the guests.  There were also bride cookies, complete with a pearl necklace. 

Our centerpieces were assorted bright pink flowers in vases with cut limes. 

The cake was nothing short of amazing, this was also made by my mother-in-law. She is so talented and I am so lucky she is teaching me all her tricks. Including this one: the cake was fake. Well most of it anyways. She used styrofoam for the middle layers. You can ice the "fake cake" weeks in advance and serve sheet cake - no one will know the difference. We did use real cake on the bottom so we had something to cut into. 

We had to include some Disney details, considering we got engaged at Disneyland. We decided to name each of the tables instead of using the traditional numbers. We had names like "The Magic Kingdom", "AdventureLand", "FantasyLand", and "ToonTown". This was our way to personalize the day, without committing to an actual theme. 

My hair was pulled back in a soft updo and adorned with an orchid. 

The bridesmaids' bouquets were bright pink with green flower accents. I didn't know much about flowers back then (and still don't), but I knew the color scheme I wanted. I let our florists (who were also friends) just run with it and I could not have been happier. 

I hope you enjoyed some of the details of my wedding. Thanks for stopping by!
