Bathroom Essentials

This was an unnecessary detail that I HAD to do!

The girl version

The boy version

Then we (again I) added little scrabble pieces to MAKE SURE NOBODY could get confused on whose box was whose. 

I don't know how much these were necessarily used by our guests, but I will say Damon and I have tapped these goods quite often over the last year! After the wedding, we left each of these in our guest bathroom and there were a handful of times that we ran out of certain things (contact solution, bandaids, wrinkle releaser) and we were happy to have back up. Not to mention, these were all mini versions of the essentials, so they have been used any time we travel and of course are available for any guests we have over (first and foremost! :))

Wind in the Willows

We had our wedding and reception at Wind in the Willows in Grantville, PA. 
It's an awesome venue! You can't beat the grounds and the fact that it was only 15 minutes away. Pam and her husband own the grounds, but the day/night of our wedding we had the pleasure of working with June. She was so accommodating and honestly bent over backwards for us! 
She rocked!

Pennant Banners

I picked up these stencils from Michaels. 
I first outlined each letter on the music note pennants in pencil, then painted in the lines.

 Afterwards, I took a thin-tip black marker and outlined the letters so they were a little more pronounced.

I then ran lace ribbon along the flags and pinned them with little mini clothespins.

Last Minute Photo booth

I begged and pleaded for a photo booth at the wedding, but Damon told me it wasn't in the budget. I had come to terms with it in the days leading up to the wedding, but when we started to set up the venue-SOMEHOW-a make shift do it yourself photo booth/backdrop area was formed. 
If there is a will there is a way! You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a photo booth, just grab some interesting furniture, decorations, or rent from swoon :). 
It was a hit.


Seating Chart

Our seating chart was pretty simple. We printed our guest's names on clear labels and transferred the labels to tags. We order Christmas ornament hooks off of amazon and used those to attach the tags to the shutters. My mom made the arrangements-she has the floral touch.



MIA is an understatement and I won't even waste your time with the apologies-you have all heard them before! I will say, this excuse is a little better then my last. The excuse...REID PATRICK KEGERISE!

Shortly after my last post and way too shortly after our wedding, we were surprised with some-oh so-not planned news....a baby on the way! AHHHHH!

First----How do I tell my parents? Irregardless of your age or marital status, when you aren't planning on getting pregnant, breaking the news to your parents seems like something straight out of MTV's 16 and pregnant (ok-it wasn't that bad). :) After telling my parents and waiting the 9 long months it takes to bake up a baby, Reid is here and we wouldn't have it any other way. I have one month left on my maternity leave and I am ready to jump back into the saddle and get back to posting the details of our wedding. Unfortunately, for those just interested in wedding details and Charlie our dog, I am here to apologize again. Babies will now be in the mix, as well as, the details of our soon to be move (if the house we put an offer on comes to fruition) and SWOON. Just hang on for the ride-I will try my best to keep you interested.
