Nikee & Scott June 1st

what a fun reception. Nikee and her clan did this all on their own. 
another DIY job done to perfection.

some elements of the design that i am positively dying to share with you:
1. color scheme was absolutely spot-on for Nikee who has such a fun bright personality. guests were not left wondering "who is Nikee and what is she all about".
2. the use of over-sized bright balloons at the entrance on the chalkboard and on the buggy.
3. the lounge area {dying of this one} set up on a corner of the lawn. not only a great area for pictures, but also guests were spotted there relaxing in the shade and sipping fresh squeezed lemonade. at night a lamp provided just the right ambiance to the lounge.
4. mini hats which the bridesmaids wore adding a fun unique twist.
5. lemonade stand squeezing lemons on vintage juicers.
6. the cake. i kind-a could on about the cake. let the pictures speak for themselves. love the vintage dresser.

so yeah.... i'm obsessed with this one. kudos to Nikee and her entourage for pulling off an event that might make my list of "favorite events of 2011".

I totally need to give props to Lavender and Lace Rentals who provided the chalkboard, vintage dresser for the cake, and the complete lounge area. Also a great big thanks to Jamie Blaisdell who took these amazing pictures.

Alexa & Brian July 1st

oh how i ♥ a DIY wedding. it is so fun to see the creative genius come out.

this beautiful couple found most of their decor from flea markets, garage sales, and second-hand stores. they then spruced up the finds by adding just the right embellishment. kneaders helped with some of the tasty baked goods, while the family provided the rest. guests had a ball dressing up in goofy hats and props and used an old chalkboard to write messages to the new couple.
