On Saturday Bruno and I had the honor of being the wedding day coordinators for Alison and Gareth; fellow book people, friends, and crafters-in-crime. They had just the loveliest wedding! It was set at a summer camp for inner city youth, and filled with 100 beautiful handmade details. It was a joy to return the favor of working their wedding, as they did such a smashing job of being our wedding day helpers. This is a trade I highly recommend to any folks out there getting married who don't have a wedding planner- and honestly it is SO much fun.
While the wedding party dressed and spent time together and took photos (they have incredibly talented photographers, One Love Photo, can't wait to see the pictures), we coordinated the decoration of the ceremony site, the reception hall, and were point people throughout the evening.
These two planned so many amazing and original craft projects that sadly I was too distracted to take pictures of (I'm sure she will post them on her blog anyways), but I will share a few shots from later in the evening...
The reception ceiling was strung with papel picado and a million twinkle lights, it looked so magical:
And here is the first dance... Alison and Gareth didn't choreograph their dance they just, um, happen to be AMAZING swing dancers:
Thanks for letting us be part of such an amazing day!
