My Best Friend's Wedding (II)

Remember I told you about my friend's wedding yesterday? Well... where do I start. It was really lovely but sooooo much work went into it since the wedding was planned in only two weeks. You see the thing is she had decided on a 2010 fall wedding but because a host of reasons, they had to push it up, way up. She had one of the those set ups where you get a blank slate and do everything yourself. The church and the reception hall had to be decorated, food stations, cake, gift area, favors, bar and virtually everything in between had to be set up. I got there at about 4:30 pm on Saturday and nothing had been done. We didn't leave until 2pm and still there was so much left to do.

And on top of that, when the cake was being transported, it fell and broke in half. Luckily the bride is a baker and was able to repair it with her little box of tricks, but can you imagine the stress factor? This was a complete DIY wedding and a lot of stuff was done the day of the wedding in spite of the fact that it started at 11am on a Sunday. I am so tired right now and I can imagine how the other helpers feel (and there were many) considering they started long before me.

But i'm happy to report that all's well that ends well and the most important thing is that she woke up in the arms of her husband the next morning and isn't that what really matters?
Here are some pics, I apologize in advance for the quality or lack thereof.

You can kinda see the aisle a little from this one.

This is a glimpse of the front of the church and the alter. you can also see the unity candle lit here. I was so busy trying to coordinate everything that I didn't get a chance to take many pictures but she should get hers back soon so i'll get to see my work in print.

Has anyone done anything like this and if so how did it turn out?
Well as always, TTFN (ta ta for now).
