Real wedding: Marissa + Caleb

September 27, 2010

Morning, cakelets! Last week was a bit crazy around here prepping for Hitched, which was like easily the cutest thing we’ve ever attended. Those of you who stopped by to say hi, it was so great to meet you! We can’t tell you how exciting it is to actually meet people in person who read our blog. We have tons of projects to show you, and eventually of course we’ll show the official event photos, but we need another day to get those rolling. And if you check back in a few hours, we’ll have a little peek of the event ready to share. So for now, how about a super cute farm wedding to start the week?

Marissa and Caleb went crazy with the details and projects, all of which are great. But the venue really shines. Farm, barn, old stone foundation-y type thing. It’s all pretty amazing. And then there’s the “entrance” to their ceremony that they built themselves. Plenty of handmade details to reflect their individual taste and interests, thanks to this very crafty bride and her very crafty friends.

AND they only had four months to plan because they wanted to be married on their five year dating anniversary. You see? Anything is possible with proper inspiration and helpful friends!

Marissa made these genius invitations herself. Yes, that is a playlist on digital vinyl, and yes, those are owls. Very cute, right?

Taking the guestbook to the next level with “leaf” thumbprints on a giant poster, courtesy of their illustrator friend Daniel Bressette. What an awesome thing to be able to hang in your home, too. Oh – & adorable fabric hankies for tears of joy. How cute.

Wait, and a map of the wedding itself. Mmmmmm.

And of course they even have giant grasshoppers in attendance.

Here’s that super amazing vintage wooden entrance we mentioned. Is that not the perfect way to enter an outdoor wedding? Bonus – it was built by her uncle.

It really doesn’t get more vintage than ancient stone walls- what a brilliant choice for a reception location.

Well hello, little cake toppers! Aren’t you silly and cute?

Ahh, the night photos. Enchanting, don’t you think?

The perfect way to end a completely captivating and magical day.  Love every bit of it, Marissa & Caleb.
