It's All in the Details

Somehow our wedding was over two months ago! Time has flown by and I thought it might be nice to share some of our wedding photos over the next few weeks. Today I want to start with the details. It was amazing to see all those little things that I had been planning all come together at once.

I love this shot of my wedding dressing hanging in the entrance to our venue. I almost didn't buy this "Mrs. Bailey" hanger but this amazing Etsy vendor was able to create and ship it with less than a week before my wedding! I know it wasn't a necessity but I'm so glad I was able to get one. A plan wooden hanger just wouldn't have been the same.

When it came to flowers I knew I needed white and blue hydrangeas. My florist Susan Adams recommended adding some white anemone with blue centers and I now have a new favorite flower. They were the perfect extra pop at the tables and in my bouquet.

If you know me at all, you know my favorite bakery is Sift in Mystic and I will use any excuse to get a treat from there. I don't think they were open a month before T and I planned to have them bake our wedding cake. The buttercream frosting design was beautiful and I cannot wait to break into that lemon olive oil with blueberry top tier in 9 months and 24 more days. But hey, whose counting? This cake topper from Parrot Design Studio was actually one I ordered two years before we got married (a year before we got engaged for those of you counting). T and I collect lobster themed things so when I saw this I had to have it.

Unfortunately, I cannot take credit for the Krispy Kreme favor idea. My Mother In-Law thought of this and mentioned it one day long before we ever thought about marriage. I stored that idea away for when the day came. I ordered up these adorable Krispy Kreme donuts along with their little boxes that were freshly made the morning of the wedding. Best favor ever in my opinion!

I wanted our wedding to have an overall nautical feel without being overtly nautical. I think the navy and white striped table linens and Mystic Knotwork table numbers really helped create that feeling along with the other small touches throughout the reception like the oyster shell escort cards and the lobster trap card holder.

I loved every little detail I put into the wedding but I couldn't have accomplished it without some of the most amazing vendors including Kimberly over at Coastal Gourmet who made my ideas come to life!
