One more

Here we go with one more wedding post (see the dessert bar here and our outfits here)! This post is definitely a picture overload, but I can't help it! I want to show you guys everything:)

Drinking Jars (Mason jars, homemade name tags, straws via Etsy)

We had a cocktail hour before the ceremony so we had these lovely cheeses out for everyone to munch on (you can't really see any of them in this photo, but the plates are all vintage. Each one is different, but oh so pretty. Most of them came from an antique store near my house).

His and Hers cocktails
Ben and I each chose one of our favorite cocktails to share at the wedding/party. Mine was the French Martini (vodka, chambord, and pineapple juice). Ben chose the Sazerac. We served these cocktails (instead of a full bar), wine, and beer. The signature drinks were a huge hit (and if you haven't already, you need to try a French Martini)!

Beautiful flowers Ben's mom put together just before the wedding.

We found these gorgeous dried flowers at a farmer's market the day before the wedding. We used milk jars that belonged to Ben's grandfather instead of vases and put them on all of the tables.

Polaroid fun!

Gift/card table (vintage suitcase via Etsy)

We hung pictures of Ben and I above the fireplace (some of our engagement photos and a few baby pictures too:).

Decorations - Poms via Etsy (here), mason jar lanterns homemade by Ben's sister

Close up of the lanterns. I love them! Once it got dark, they were so pretty hanging all around the tent and pavilion. Definitely one of my favorite things from the wedding.

The End
