Lisa and Dave’s Wedding (Part Two): A fairytale under the stars
Lisa and Dave had these stepping stones made especially for their day. Guests passed over these before entering the tent for the reception.

How fitting that Lisa and I (and our friend Laura) each wore Kate Spade for our wedding day!
Lisa loved this Victoria’s Secret bridal shower gift I gave her… she was just disappointed that it was too hot to wear on the day of! Note to you: Buy “Bride” tank tops for summer weddings, and “Bride” hoodies for winter weddings.
Reading a note from Dave before the wedding…
Hanging from Lisa’s bouquet were small picture frames of the people in Lisa and Dave’s life that they’ve lost, like Mara.
Lisa and her mom made these chandeliers for the reception! The reception was held in a tent on Lisa’s parent’s tennis court which is right outside their home. Turns out a tennis court can seem MUCH bigger than you would expect—they did an amazing job with the decor (which makes sense, because Lisa’s mom, Liz—click here to read her blog, is a fabulous interior designer at Stange’s of Waupaca).
Their table numbers were so sweet and crafty… each had a childhood photo of both Lisa and Dave that coordinated. What fun for the guests to go from table to table and see Lisa and Dave grow up!
In my matron of honor speech, I talked about love at first sight—how like Lisa and I became fast/forever friends in first grade, and then she experienced love at first sight with Dave, too. She knocked on his dorm room door to study with his roommate, and Dave answered the door in just a towel… HEYY-YOO, from then on, he was no longer just cute-boy-from-Geography-class (a.k.a. Geography Boy), he was the boy who would become her boyfriend for sophomore year. That’s what she told us, and that’s exactly what happened! Seven years later, they’re newlyweds. I love it.
They’re glowing… and not just because of the wall of lights behind them. So happy for you both, Lisa and Dave!
