I designed our cake and centerpieces along the invitations and table cards...all of which were named after
different kinds of martini's. We sat at the Perfect Martini and our
favor was the recipe for the Perfect Martini and a donation to Cancer
Research in my father's memory. And to really drive home the theme, we had a Martini Bar! White roses were a recurrent theme throughout as they were part of our engagement story; so they became the only flower in our bouquets and centerpieces.
The guest book was a silver leafed old fashioned photo album with black pages, we asked guests to sign using a white gel pen in any way they saw fit...this was where our guest's personalities really shined...my brother and oldest friend Kate actually played Hangman to spell out "Congratulations." And my friend Debbi drew a bride and wrote her well wishes, so adorable. That book is one of the things we most cherish from our day.
It's been an amazing ten years and I can't wait to see what the next ten have in store! I think marriage is a lot like your wedding: you look back on it and there are some things you'd differently but those are just details, when you remember the day, it's the best day of your life in every way...just like he's the best thing in my life in every way.
PS With all my love...
