Real Weddings: Dina + Derek The Details

Yesterday, I posted about Dina and Derek’s wedding. Now on to my favorite part, the details!

Dennis Lee, the couple’s photographer, also featured the couple on his blog.

Dina had a dress patch sown into her dress as her “Something Blue”.
The rings before the ceremony.
The beautiful programs that the Bride made herself!
The front of the church was decorated with the couples initials.

The escort cards were hung from branches provided by the florist.  
The Bride made the escort cards herself.
The cake table was adorned with the couple’s initials.
Each menu, designed by the Bride, was folded into a napkin.
The paper had a beautiful scroll design.
The couple named each of the tables after Chicago Landmarks.

The table top had very clean lines.
During dinner, I brought out the Candy Buffet.  Dina made signs that said “Love Sweet Love”.
Guests piled into the photobooth.  I have never seen a photobooth go ignored!
The photobooth printed out duplicates of each photo so that guests could use the images for when they signed the guestbook.
