Tim and Janae Tie the Knot!

On October 9, 2010, my cousin Timmy and his high school sweetheart, Janae, got married! It was such a beautiful day with the autumn colors, sun shining, and lots of fun! My gift to the happy couple was to decorate their reception...which I love to do! Janae picked red, white, black, and silver as her colors...and it turned out beautiful! The ceremony was at Good Sheperd United Methodist Church in Fort Wayne and the reception was the Marriott.

Introducing the Planck's!

Saying their vows.

The rings hanging on a centerpiece. (Keep scrolling to see what it looked like!)

They used the same lady I did to make their cake, and I thought it turned out beautiful! We collaborated on decorating the top, and I banded the table with red chair ties that I rented from a local party store in Fort Wayne called All Occasion. I also used these chair ties to band the head table and gift table.
I made Dan set out the place cards. I should also give my other assistant, Bryan, a shout out as well. Couldn't have finished in time to get to the wedding without them! I laid a couple chair ties across the table so it wouldn't look too white. I banded this table with some thick ribbon.

The wedding party

Lovely flowers

The Marriott had glass cylinders that I was able to use (free of charge!). About a week before the wedding, Dan and I went on a stick gathering adventure and collected hundreds of twigs. We spray painted the twigs silver and black. (We used about two coats for each stick.) I bought scrapbook paper, cut it to the right size, and placed it in the vase. Simple! The Marriott provided the mirrors as well. Thanks, Marriott! :o)

I bought tons of ribbon in their colors, and we ended up glue gunning the ribbon to the cylinder to get it to stay. (For some reason my glue dots weren't working...) I alternated putting a beaded garland and ribbon in the water with a floating candle on top!

Congrats to the newly weds, and welcome to the family, Janae! (Even though it already felt like you were!) Blessings to you!
