Mike and I attended my colleague's wedding this past week, and as a good-wedding-blogger I took many pictures and mental notes. (Mostly because Mike and I are really starting to think about details for our own, and because I very much enjoyed working with Jenn for the last 5 years!)
To maximize good lighting and time spent with their photographer, we captured their sendoff before the reception, during the cocktail hour. Mike demonstrates the bubbles used for this part of the celebration.
Brad proposed to Jenn over a drink, specifically on a bottle of Yuengling. (Afterall, they are from Pennslyvania and Yuengling is brewed there). After white water rafting, he presented her with a bottle of beer, but instead of the traditional Yuengling label, Jenn's favorite picture of the couple asked of her "Will you marry me?"
Jenn used the same idea for her seating cards and favors. Each guest found their name attached to a bottle of Yuengling (or rootbeer, if you're under 21) with the famed picture and the date of the wedding. Additionally, Jenn and Brad tied on the guests names and table number with different color ribbons to signify your entree choice.
This much needed treat hit the spot after much dancing and celebrating.
A fun time was had by all -- Congrats Jenn and Brad!!
