Wedding Wednesday - V. XII

I know I missed last weeks WW post, and I have no excuses, but I apologize! soooo, here we are again with another post in which I publish my wedding pictures with no regret or shame whatsoever. if you'd like to be nosy, and see past WW posts, click here.

just in case you weren't aware... I did a "perfect pair" theme with our wedding. if you can't tell, I love a play on words; hence the name of this here blog. I didn't want to have pears everywhere, and have a big pear cheese fest, so instead I came up with little creative ways to incorporate pears without being overbearing about it. there are TONS of pear wedding accessories on the internet, but I wanted to stay away from the corporate world of wedding, and make it more interesting... more fresh... more US.

we included a pear graphic on all of our wedding stationery, including our invitations, our menu cards, and our programs. you can see all our paper products in this past issue of WW. instead of having cheesy little pear favors, I decided to order fresh pears and use them for escort cards, as well as favors (we also made a donation to the American Cancer Society in lieu of trinket favors). we showcased a pear flavored signature drink... it was a huge hit! I ran with our pear green color, and added chocolate brown and ivory as accent colors, and I have to say... it was beautiful.

so without further adieu, here are some pictures of our pear details... along with some that feature our color scheme. I loved the planning process, and finding the perfect details to coordinate with our theme and colors - even if no one noticed all my hard work, it still paid off in the end.

as always, all photos are credited to the lovely and talented Jen, from JLowe Photos. if you'd like to see more of her work, feel free to visit her blog here.

PS - see those name tags attached to the pears? I handmade of those. thank god for the Fiskar's paper cutter and some cheap scrapbook paper!

Happy Wednesday, loves!
