Wedding pictures

Hi everyone.  I have lots of wedding pictures to share today.  Hope you don't mind.  ;)  This weekend we had the last wedding reception for my daughter in our backyard!  It was beautiful and I am so relieved that all of the festivities are done and we have such good memories of it all to look back on.  Life is good.  :)

Jessica & Tyson were sealed for time and all eternity in the Portland Temple:

It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed it thoroughly!

They are perfect for each other.  :)

My sweet daughter

We love our new son-in-law :)

 Here are some pictures from the reception in our backyard

We wanted this reception to be relaxed and fun, so we decided to have it in the back yard.  My very talented friend made this beautiful cake.  She also built the cake table!  Would you believe that each layer of this cake is made from styrofoam and then covered with fondant?!  We wanted a beautiful cake, but not the cost.  She made the fondant from marshmallows and powdered sugar.  How fun would this be with the Cricut cake machine for the flowers?!

This little cake is real and is the cake that the happy couple cut.  It was originally going to be the top layer, but instead, we turned a small white plate upside down on top of a candlestick and then placed this tiny cake on top.

I made a lot of tissue paper poms to use for decorations.  Great splash of color without spending lots of $.  I also cut 'picture frames' using my Cricut to display a few pictures of the happy couple on each table.

We sprinkled rose petals on the tables and the  wind blew some of them onto the grass.  :)

Another tissue pom.  Click HERE to see how to make them.

My wonderful Mom and Dad made chocolate dipped strawberries.  Yum!  (What would we do without family?!)

I used my Gypsy to cut the vinyl for this sign and tied it on with Scarlet Red Crinkle Ribbon.

There goes my little girl, all grown up.  sigh . . . 

 Have a happy day!
