Oh Pinteresting - Wedding Detail


Thank you for the sweet comments on our anniversary yesterday. I was so happy all day long!
I wanted to share a few details of our wedding today and I put all the photos up on Pinterest. The colors for our wedding were cranberry, golden yellow and cream, so from Sean's point of view, essentially they are USC colors, which he hates, he is a UCLA fan. Since we are both runners (him more seriously, me just recreationally), I decided to incorporate elements of running throughout. I won't mention how but let the photos tell the details.

*On a side note, Pinterest wasn't around when I was planning my wedding and I spent so much time trying to remember certain images I had seen and where I had seen them. Since Pinterest, I have seen so many cute images saying to myself, I wish I would have done this or that. However, looking over my wedding photos of all these details, I don't regret what elements I incorporated into Sean and I's wedding. I am really happy with our wedding and how we did things and I wouldn't change the elements we used either way, Pinterest or no Pinterest. 
For my Oh Pinteresting Wednesday, details from my wedding 2 years ago.

This was my hair done by my awesome and talented hairstylist, Cheree.

This was my dress 

These were my shoes


These are our rings

These were the flowers, the first bouquet was mine and the second were the bridesmaids.
My bouquet had orchids, lilies, mini roses and ranunculus. 


Another view of the bridesmaids bouquet


For the aisle decoration, we did running shoes and sprinkled rose petals. We used brand new running shoes just in case you were wondering, I didn't want our guests to be sitting next to those shoes with their nose wrinkling at the stench.


For our reception, we named each of our tables after a major marathon. Sean wrote an informational card about the marathon that was on each table. We had tables like the London Marathon, Boston Marathon, etc.

These are some photos of the table assignments. I taped the cards to the thick yellow ribbon which were laid on top of a rose petals.




The gift we gave our guests was a package of coffee because Sean and I love coffee and our first date was at a coffee shop. The coffee was SLO(San Luis Obispo) Roast Coffee, which is from the area that Sean grew up. We got to pick the flavor of coffee, french vanilla, and give our brew a specific name.


Our reception centerpieces were monochromatic red vases and red dahlias and roses.


This was our cake and my sister made the cake topper with running bibs on the back Sean wearing 7 and me wearing 17 for our wedding date. She was very involved with the details on the topper.


And for our guests, red velvet cupcakes.


And yes those are chocolate running shoes on top of the cupcakes.

There you go! I didn't provide all photos from my wedding details so if you want to see a few more photos, check out my Pinterest board.

First of all- HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! =)

Pinterest did not get popular until the month after our wedding. It would have made things so much easier if I had it when I was planning. I still pin weddding stuff all the time though! Great pins!
