Stephanie Land, the photographer behind these beautiful photographs, is working on getting me some more images that haven't already been published...but, in the meantime, I wanted to share a few more that I did have!

More details...

*Jelsen is a designer and designed our invites himself. My only request was that he would use the Kraft paper, because I love the organic look of it. Our RSVP cards where postcards that guests returned with messages written to us. It was great because every day we would receive postcards from around the world. (Norway, Germany, Italy, U.S etc). The envelopes where handmade by a stationer in Chicago, Amber Favorite.

*We showed our baker a picture of a cake we liked and she made it with all the little changes we wanted. Legos has a special meaning to us (Jelsen's cufflinks were made of legos and my necklace reads LEGO), and she made these great cake toppers for us. The cake and all other sweets she made for the guests were amazingly tasteful.

*Planners, Maya & Sara of Titans of Industry, were kind enough to take on the task of helping us towards the end. Two weeks before the wedding, I realized that I didn't want to be the one that everyone would turn to for questions on my wedding day. I also didn't want to be the one that told our families what to do at the rehearsal, so we decided to hire on this great team to help us out. And did they help! They handled everyone in our families SO well, and if there was a problem at the wedding, I didn't know and I still don't really know because they took care of it!
