Congratulations, Danielle & Ryan! (part 2)

Missed part 1?

We did wedding day coordination for Danielle & Ryan which means all the cute little details are credited to the newlyweds. I needed a whole separate post to show them to you! I was really astonished when I visited their apartment to pick up all their DIY projects. Can you believe that Ryan the groom was responsible for printing & assembling most of the paper products?

Again, all these fantastic images were captured by Genevieve Leiper Photography:
Raspberry lemonade provided refreshment before the ceremony:
I told you these floral pomanders were HUGE! Really -- they were about the size of a basketball and weighed about 20lbs:Each of their immediate family members got a sign to hold their seat at the ceremony:Buckets of hydrangeas were later used in their centerpieces:
The wedding ceremony programs:
Peeking through the garden:Linda at Heaven on Earth did a wonderful job with the flowers:I love these next few relaxed and creative portraits. Genevieve certainly has an eye for detail:
The escort cards:
Dinner menus tucked into each guest's napkin:Each table was named after a vineyard the couple had visited together. On each table was also placed an empty bottle from that vineyard! In this photo you can also see those recycled hydrangeas in action:The guest favors were chocolate truffles made by the newlyweds. YUM! Each truffle had a little flag that denoted each seat at the table:R&R Catering's signature raspberry in the champagne glasses:
Instead of a full-on candy bar, the couple displayed personalized M&Ms in their wedding colors:
They also asked guests to write some Words of Wisdom instead of signing a guest book:Drink menus at the bar listed their signature drink:
Remember these chairs?
Here they are, being put to good use:
Debbie at Cakes by Design created a fabulous cake:I love these two informal portraits:Congratulations again, Danielle & Ryan! I hope you both enjoyed every second of your wedding day. I know we sure did :)
