paper goodies | wedding day

Here are a few of the "paper goodies" from the wedding. Above is a picture of our invite.

After making 1200 mini chocolate chip cookies for favors, we stuffed them in these cute boxes and tied them with yarn like a bakery to put at all the place settings. The tag said "hope you enjoy our favorite sweet, made with love, always, brian and jessa."

For months, I wrestled with a way that I was going to display our placecards. After doing a site inspection of the Old Ribbon Mill in Carlisle, I decided to use two pillars and hang the placecards on twine with mini clothes pins. I had my siblings join in the fun and hang the cards for me. Thanks again for all your help setting up!

I stayed with the twine theme and hung pictures of Brian and I in the archway connecting the rooms.

Then, we ran the twine along the wall of the reception room and placed pictures of our guests on the wall. It was a huge hit! Everyone loved seeing their picture and sharing memories while walking around the room. We added a few funny pictures of Brian and I when we were little for some comic relief. Thanks to Chris and Maliya for getting all the pictures together - it wouldn't have been such a success without you!
