Ben & Kirsten Love

One great part of moving to Maryland is that Simon has been able to refresh his longtime friendship with Ben, and both of us have been able to get to know Kirsten, his fiancee: who today became his WIFE!  Congratulations Ben & Kirsten!
Back in October, they asked me to take their engagement pictures, and we had a lovely chilly day out in the park...

Kirsten had a lot of beautiful DIY ideas for the wedding and she enlisted the help of myself and several friends during our Sunday night get-togethers.  Several are shown in these pictures:
~ Printed and corner-punched her own programs
~ Ribbon-wand send-offs
~ Lovely Gerbera Flowers!

~ Ribbon tied chairs with, you guessed it, Martha's good ol' tissue pom-poms!
~A cupcake cake (really yummy!)
~ Name cards stuck in cork, which she and our friends cut ourselves, as shown here:
(*note: if you are getting married soon and want to buy her corks, I think she has about 100 corks cut and ready to hold name cards, see them standing in next top-right picture)

~ Matted picture as guestbook
~ Again, cork name card holders
~ "Trial-size" coffee favors

If you have any questions about something, let me know and we can tell you where she got her ideas.  It was a beautiful wedding and she was a beautiful bride!  Oh yeah, and her mom made all the jewelry for the bride and maids, I loved it.

Simon was a groomsmen, and I was the guest"book" attendant.  We stepped out for some pictures after the reception, look, I'm a fairy!  Hee hee...

And a little chuckle to end with... this picture was during the maid-of-honor's toast.  Do you see Simon at the left side?  It looks like he's getting his hair done at a salon.  Can you guess what that thing is?  
Also, the guy next to Simon is the boyfriend of the girl talking: doesn't he look enthralled?  Heh heh.

Look at Simon just one more time.  BAH-ha!
Yay for weddings.  Blessings!

**Is the "thing" over Simon's head the photographer's flash?
