I am learning to enjoy the moment. Thank you for your patience as we worked on the wedding for Kelsie. They have happily gone off on their honeymoon and have begun their life together. My mind will once again turn towards catching up on the creativity at Pebbles. Here are some of the details we created for the reception. With the help of my family, I thought it turned out beautiful!
For the reception we spent our time thrift storing for just about everything... oh! the thrill of the hunt. We gathered a variety of silver metal trays at the thrift store and spray painted them with an antique brass finish. Kelsie picked out her favorite plates and we E6000 them together onto glass goblets. I think one of my favorite projects was dipping the assorted glasses into white latex paint. We picked out a bunch of 5x7 and 8x10 frames for the tables and also larger ones for display and spray painted them cream. Abby and Ashlee dipped wooden tongue depressors into acrylic paint for the sign in table, guests will write a dating idea onto the stick. I was delighted to find chalk markers for the blackboards that were so much easier to use then regular chalk. Kelsie does not like roses. She loves peonies, so I ordered garden roses. The Jam Tart Sweetheart Garden Roses took my breath away and opened up to resemble peonies perfectly. We ordered them online at fiftyflowers.com. We hung white lights and white banners. Doughnuts were ordered from Banbury Crosse in SLC. I will post a few more pictures, once they come back.

What would any of us do without Pinterest nowadays? This wedding was easy to plan for Kelsie and Josh because she pinned all the details she loved and gave us a vision. This is probably my favorite thing I did for them and I want to do it for Larry and I, and all of our daughters and their husbands. It would be fun to do this for each child too! They wrote down 100 things they loved about each other and I put them on clipboards with their initials. This list will be much needed through all the challenges of life and remind them of their love for each other. I love the clipboards.
I thought these turned out pretty cool. I gathered metal trays at our thrift store and spray painted them an antique brass finish by Rustoleum. I thought we would place these in the center of the tables with off white tablecloths and place a photo of Kelsie and Josh on it, along with a little gathering of jar vases and candle. Everything is coming together in my head, but my fingers are still crossed.
We went to the temple as a family with Kelsie and Josh in preparation for their wedding this coming week. It was a perfect day being all together. Our family is LDS... I know many of you may not be and thought you may like to understand what we believe in here. The inspirational stories are wonderful too.
