January Wedding

Celebration! My sweet friend Kirsten has married her dream man. They have a darling love story based on many years of friendship, and I was honored to be a part of their Alabama wedding just a couple weeks ago. It was casual and fun, with quaint little nuances woven throughout. We hung colorful mini penant-strings throughout twigs in the small, cozy chapel. Heirloom quilts decorated the dance floor in the ballroom. Mason jars and cheesecakes were everywhere! Many of Kirsten's friends helped with elements of the wedding. Two of her friends photographed the event. The photos included here were taken by Mandii, more by Daniel are seen here. I made the groom's and groomsmen bowties (as seen). Another friend made the bouquets. Another friend made about 20 cheesecakes (flavours included blueberry lemonade, coffee and donuts, ginger pear, pumpkin spice, etc) Other friends played bluegrass. Kirsten was a beautiful, shining star, and her handsome husband Josh was right by her side, swingin' her around while we all square danced the night away.
Can't say I don't love a good promenade.

Sounds so romantic. I love the fact it was a group effort. More pictures please! I would love to see the chapel. My daughter is the Maid Of Honor in her friends wedding (August 2012) and they need ideas! They have gone Pinterest crazy.
