Sweet Details #ColemanAndWife

Clear your plans, it’s wedding week.

We got our wedding photos this weekend!! After spending a few days “oohing” and “ahhing” at them, we’re ready to share. Every day this week, I will be posting different aspects from our wedding – details, bridal party, first look, and ceremony. This post is going to focus on all the pretty little details of our big day.

I hope I can always remember the big parts of my wedding like my dad walking me down the aisle, icing Spencer during the garter toss, and dancing to Bollywood music. All the little details though might start to slowly fade from my memory. All the small things that I spent months painstakingly planning. Luckily, my photographer loves detail shots just as much as I do.

I swear I wasn’t a bridezilla but I did provide my family and friends with a three page packet of wedding details. It listed all the decor, suggestions on where it should go, and inspiration photos. Besides providing the packet, I think I was pretty chill the day of. So chill that I probably wasn’t very helpful. My answer to most questions were “What do you think we should do?” and “Anything you do will be perfect.” Which led to me feeling stress free and everyone else a little confused.

Our family and friends worked so hard to make our day perfect. My vision of “woodland, fairy wedding” was captured to the T! I am so thankful.

Come back tomorrow to see photos of our beautiful bridal party!

Still thinking about those cupcakes!

This sweet vintage cake topper was gifted to us by my grandparents. They used it at their wedding 61 years ago.

Each invitation was sent out with a wax seal.

Handlettered by me.

Isn’t that moss glorious?

This necklace, called ‘the lavalier,’ is still a mystery to me. It is worn by every Leppala girl at their wedding.

I tried my hand at wood burning to make these hangers for my girls.

My maid of honor gifted me this gorgeous custom hanger.

Pointing to places important to us – Seattle, Reykjavik (spelled wrong, whoops), Yokosuka, Pearland, and San Diego .

    We may have been Leppala girls, but the Lavalier was passed down through Your Grandma Nan (originally Stiles) .
    LOVE the details!

    Every detail was breathtaking. That cake tasted amazing. We enjoyed it for several days at Thelma and Kenny’s house. Can’t wait to see more pictures.
    Love, Aunt Chelle Foster
