Love in the Redwoods

Last summer, my cousin got married in the idyllic California setting, underneath the majestic Redwood trees in Santa Cruz, California.

Her wedding pictures are stunning and I just had to share some of the cute paper details we created for her big day.

Here are some fun ideas from her summer wedding…

Guests were greeted at the reception with a large seating chart with the couple’s redwood wedding motif. Guests could gather around to find their name and table number while waiting to sign the guest book. I think this is a great way to save paper and it is a fun poster for the couple to keep as a memory from their wedding.

In lieu of wedding favors, the couple chose to give a donation to 2 charities. At the head of each place seating was a stone on top of  a small note asking guests to choose a charity. At the dessert table, there were 2 pails with descriptions of the charity. Guests could drop their stones into whichever pail they preferred while waiting in line for desserts.

Instead of a wedding cake, the couple opted for a country table filled with homemade pies, cakes, cookies, and tarts. And for a special surprise, platters of It’s Its ice cream sandwiches (the couple’s favorite childhood treat) were brought out later in the evening for guests to cool off after dancing the night away.
