Father of the Bride BBQ

Do you remember the wedding reception dream scene of "Father of the Bride" George Banks, played by Steve Martin? Such a classic guy idea! My husband would love the same thing. He would be having a wonderful time at his daughter's wedding gnawing on ribs with barbecue sauce all over his face.

I, on the other hand, have something all together different in mind. So a compromise is a Father of the Bride BBQ the night before the wedding. Originally I wanted it in the classic red and white checked tablecloth theme but when my daughter saw a photo of a yellow and white checked cloth she said "I want that!" The more I thought about it the more I liked it so this is part inspiration board, part reality for the barbecue. So it's yellow and white and black with lawn games, lemonade and buttons too. I want that yellow wooden box real bad!

Golden Woodsy Wedding Invitation

The groom helped me out with this invitation! Bill and Danielle were looking at possible wedding ceremony sites in Sunriver and of course Bill had his trusty camera with him to snap some shots of the possibilities. I picked one and did a little Photoshopping and voila'! it became the background. The ivory, gold and teal with a bit of brown turned out to be a lovely combination of colors.

The tree in their logo found its way just about everywhere on the invitation suite pieces. Let's just say they really like that tree!
Check out their Save-the-Date postcards that were printed on a birch wood paper!
