♥ the highest happiness on earth is marriage.

now that nick and i have chosen our venue and the date for our wedding,
i have started the fun task of scouring the internet for ideas.

when i came upon the wedding of eunice and daniel, i found that i loved
so many details i could not help but write a big old post about it.
grab a bib and get ready to drool.

my favorite part about this wedding is that the entire occasion is like a
performance that the bride and groom were committed to from start to finish.
take a look at those fabulous costumes! and that set designed by the bride and
created by because we can.

i cannot get over how adorable and authentic the custom packaging,
printed program paddle fans and vellum bags of ecofetti
from eunice's company, hello!lucky letterpress look.
so old fashioned! so fabulous!

and like a page out of a story book, the way to the wedding
was led by a parade of party goers with animals on sticks
(also created by because we can and designed by the bride)
effing amazing.

the bride and groom were married by daniel's father,
who was serious and humorous at the same time.

the clever seating arrangement matched names to animals
instead of numbers. LOVE.

a signature cocktail, named "marital bliss" was served
with special flags in each glass.

hand written chalkboard menus by calligrapher, michelle papineau
add a whimsical touch to the reception.

love the crowns, love the waiter's naval inspired outfits,
love the coffee filter pink pom poms strung everywhere,
love the wreath on the back of her chair, love everything!

and right when you think that they covered just about every last detail,
they ended the evening with a trunk full of cozy blankets for chilly guests
to wrap themselves in.

and they both lived happily ever after.
the end.
