We just got back from our honeymoon, so I can finally post pics!!! Our photographer blogged a few, which you can see at http://www.bigdayfoto.com/blog but these are all from family and friends 🙂
First up, ceremony location…on my parents front lawn, overlooking the river.
The little easel held a small white bible of my grandmothers.
The reception location…tent in my parents backyard. I refuse to have too many (ie any) decorations, because the site was so beautiful. This was before the chairs were brought in from the ceremony, so it looks weird.
Our centerpieces…I went with low ones because I know how much I hate sitting at a table with something blocking my view of the people across the table. If it’s too tall, the first thing I do is move it to the floor!
Our cake 🙂 2 orangies in honour of our 2 orangies, Milo and Stewart. Milo is totally the one in the dress (even though he’s a boy).
My DIY fan progams, and now the bane of my existance.
My flowers in the middle, the girls on the sides.
My candy bar. We had the PERFECT amount of candy (and all the best kinds!). Please note that most people at the candy bar are also holding beer.
Now for pics with ACTUAL PEOPLE in them!
Back down the aisle…How happy are we?! And by we I mean I.

Washer toss, our kissing game! Get it in, we kiss. Get it in the pipe, we kiiiiiiiiissssss! My 2 year old cousin kept putting the washer in the pipe!
We all did funny entrances. The groomsmen brought me into the reception in a canoe…:) I’ll post the video after.
Me sitting on the ground with my cousins and nephew…and I wonder why my dress is ruined!
That’s all for now. It was seriously the most fun wedding ever. Even if I wasn’t the bride, I would still think so. The dance floor was packed all night and we paid the DJ to stay longer. Everyone had a blast. My husband and the groomsmen surprised us with fireworks half way through the dance. Nothing but pure awesomeness all night.

@bells – The stick is glued between 2 pieces of pink cardstock. My advice- Get. Good. Glue. And help. I did mine all by myself and the cardstock kept falling apart. I tried every kind of glue…sticks, adhesive spray, dots, etc. Finally, I went back to glue sticks (good ones) and they did the trick.

@orangie: Oh oh, tutorial. We need a tutorial. Your fan programs look really good. I want to steal the idea but I’d like a step by step if you don’t mind… I’m sure other bees will too!

@ bRooklynRocks Tutorial= no go. Only because I’m sure that I made the fans much harder and much more complicated than they had to be.
And because the thought of thinking about making them again makes me want to stab my eyes out with a pencil.
