What can be better than a sweet handmade mint and blush wedding? I have been crushing on the color mint lately and boy does today’s wedding not disappoint! The bridal party’s look is just killer! If you weren’t sure about the miss-matched bridesmaid dress trend, these gals are sure to change your mind. And how cute is the clothesline seating chart? Just too many adorable details to count!

The beautiful bride Monique shares:

Our wedding day went by so quickly. Everyone was telling me, enjoy your time because it will fly by… and it did!  The next thing I knew, I was walking down the aisle, hand in hand with my husband! Ernie and I had been thinking of a way to combine both of our styles and personalities into this big day. We are pretty laid back people, but we do have a quirk to us. So it was important we showed that side of us.

My husband is first generation filipino, so he wanted to make sure he brought his culture into the ceremony by wearing the custom barongs. They were ordered and made in the Philippines. They light weight dress shirts made out of finely woven banana fibers. Our centerpieces were simple and eclectic. I was able to make and put together a lot of the decorations… I really enjoy doing things like that. We went against the grain with our invites, they we made by hand and written in caligraphy!  How fun! We really wanted it to feel comfortable and enjoy our guests and our big day.

We are so thankful we were introduced to Sara and Steve. It was the best part about the journey to matrimony. They really understood us and our personalities. They both have amazing eyes and captured such priceless memories. Her talent is a gift from God. I am thankful to have much such a wonderful couple!

    I like idea that dresses of bridesmaids are diffrenet but so well chosen. Very beautiful pictures you can even feel love in the air (just fell in loce with this small detail!!!!). Have never think about books as decoration for wedding table! For me it looks a bit strange...but why not :D
