Over the weekend Nora and Topher got back from their honeymoon in Chicago. They had a wonderful week and enjoyed visiting many interesting sites in the city.
People have very generously shared their wedding photos with us and we now have quite a few to choose from. I thought I would try to do a couple of posts showing a few more of the little details and of the people involved in the wedding. So, if you're not interested in wedding details you can opt out. 🙂
Here is the big cardboard "C" that Topher was painting in a previous picture. It is covered in paper flowers that Nora made and that several of Topher's relatives helped "fluff."
Megan and I stitched these pew banners and then Meg and Nora painted them.
Several of the ladies helped to make these large paper flowers which were used to decorate the tent. My nephews graciously helped to hang them on the very windy afternoon of the wedding.
This was the wish tree where the guests could write out wishes on cards and attach them to the tree with ribbons.
This was the guest tree which Nora drew while she was recovering from her back surgery. The guests inked their thumbs and made thumbprint "leaves" on the tree and then wrote their names by their print.
This was what the food tent looked like without the food.
We had a small tent outside the main tent for the wedding cake. The girls all put their bouquets on the table which made it quite beautiful. We have known the girl who did the flowers since she was a small child. She now works with flowers up at the Biltmore House in Asheville. We thought they were very lovely. I got to bring several bouquets home and enjoy them for several days after the wedding.
In my next post I'll include pictures of the families and the wedding party and give you a few more details.
