June Wedding - UPDATED w/ pics!!

May was a very busy month!  I had a good friend ask me to make some items for her daughter’s June 4th wedding.  I was honored that they would trust me with such a task and so of course I obliged.  I jumped right in and made the menus, programs and table numbers.  Her wedding was a beautiful and simple outdoor wedding with a rustic theme.  We started planning well in advance, but it came down to the wire with the final design and count.  I was scrambling to get everything done, but I did it and she loved everything; which is all that mattered!!  We opted to go with the Stampin’ Up! colors of Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum because they were a perfect match to her color choices, we added Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla as the neutral colors to accentuate the rustic theme.  Here is a pic of the beautiful couple and their wedding party…
As I said in my blog candy post...I can't believe I didn't take pictures!!!  I was so behind on getting them ready and when we got to the wedding I saw there was a need for someone to pitch in and help set up, so I went straight to it and didn't think about getting pictures.  However, the phtographer got some great shots of my creations.  I have emailed him asking if I could get digital copies, but until then here are links to the images if you are interested.  YAY!  He was kind enough to share pics - you rock Jeff Scott (owner of J Darren Photography)!!

I was very pleased with the way all of the items turned out.  The fans were a HUGE was sooooooo hot that day!  There didn't seem to be a cloud in the sky and it was 95 degrees (in the mountains no less!)

For her wedding card, I made an exploding box with a cake inside using the colors from the wedding.  She absolutely adored it!!  I did get some pics of it LOL...

I made the cake from a cut file that was based on the Sizzix Pop up Die.  Unfortunately, the original maker of this file had to take it down per request of Sizzix.  If you are interested in the file let me know in your comment and I will email it to you (shhhh!).

I hope you like my creations!!
