So, have I mentioned?

I am getting married in May. That means Steve and I are in the midst of wedding planning. I thought I would share some pictures of inspiration! This is so much fun!

All six bridesmaids wore the same silk Priscilla of Boston knee-length dress with a sweetheart neckline and gold peep-toe heels. Some of the girls incorporated Taryn’s love of the ’60s and teased their hair in bouffant half up-dos.Denise wore a beaded lace trumpet gown with an empire waist and cap sleeves. Bridesmaids wore cotton sateen strapless dresses with ruching in the front. The dresses also had pockets, which the girls loved.The altar was covered with rows of Mason jars filled with candles of varying heights. Inside the jars, sand kept the candles standing straight.Pure white sugar flowers were wrapped around the cake’s six eggshell-colored tiers. Holly thought she wanted a typical bride’s cake but, after a tasting, she was hooked on a Grand Marnier butter cake with blackberry filling.Cherry blossom branches made a strong impact at each table without making it difficult for guests to talk amongst themselves.Centerpieces of varying heights were placed at alternating tables. The vases were clear, black, or white and all were filled with white flowers. Surrounding votive candles added a romantic touch.
