Moskal Wedding (A Kickass Teaparty Affair) 6-8-13

Well I’m finally getting around to the wedding photos. If you didn’t already know, I kind of have a slight obsession with teapots and teacups, but not really tea, unless it’s of the sweetened southern iced variety. Also, I like books and wish I read more. English degree not being used right here. I found all my the items for my center pieces at thrift stores and some yard sales.  To cut costs I did all the arrangements–most of the flowers came from Fresh Market that morning. And if you look closely, you’ll find some fake ones mixed in cause they were 50% off at Hobby Lobby.

The wedding favors were handmade (thank you, Lord for Sharon Taylor and Erica Mountford). I ordered custom labeled tea and some wildflower seed bombs from the darling Etsy shop Plantables & Paper, which were placed in gift boxes from the dollar store. I topped each box with dried baby’s breath and some other dried flowers that I pulled off a wreath I found at Goodwill. Sharon labeled each box with “Wildflowers & Tea” instead of my awesome suggestion of “Teabag  & Balls.” I still maintain that was a genius idea and not at all unclassy…

In an effort to balance out the insane amount of girliness, I had the groomsmen choose a lego for their boutonniere. We ended up with Hans Solo, Yoda, Indiana Jones, Captain Jack Sparrow, and Raphael Ninja Turtle. The father of the groom, who actually married us, had a specially designed lumber jack lego with a chicken on his head, and the father of the bride(that would be me)  had a lovely boutonniere adorned with a Chewbacca lego. Quite fitting if you ask me, but I was the bride so naturally everyone agreed with me.

The beautiful photos are the work of The Kenneys , a wonderfully talented husband and wife photography team. There’s so many more, but I’m trying to keep this post readable. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and GO BRONCOS!!
