Other cool stuff we should know about: Zach grew some of the flowers that we used from seeds. He bought the remaining flowers from the flower market in San Francisco and did the table arrangements with the help of family. Brian, one of the groomsmen, made the bouquets for everyone.

Favorite thing about the wedding: Our favorite part of the wedding was celebrating with our community, the people who we love the most.

    The quilt and quilt squares! The wildflowers! The love! The joy! This wedding knocks it out of the park, just like yesterday’s. Love, love, love.

    That last picture warms my heart.

    And now I have an answer for how you get people to sign quilt blocks without going into the seam allowances! This is great as my sister is planning on doing this!

    For those of you who want to do this, their idea was awesome. Get a water soluble fabric marker from any fabric place – most of the time they’re blue with a white cap. Then draw where the seam allowances of the fabric should be (judging from their pictures, they did 1/2″, which given that most quilting margins are about 1/4″ gives a bit of leeway.) Then all you have to do is soak the blocks in water for a bit when they’re done and you’ll have stuff to quilt!

      My mom is an avid quilter and Sunday school teacher, and she used to do this with her elementary school class with drawings and bible verses. She did this project once to make a quilt and a few times to make pillows. The kids loved it!

      The quilt guest book always makes my heart go squishy. Once it’s all put together, you can cuddle with your guest book. That has to be like a cuddle of love.

    So beautiful. I love the warm golds and sea greens throughout! And the relaxed happy feel!

    I would love to know any tips or tricks for how you made the colored decorations that hang from the rafters (or a how to from APW?) I’m sure they have a name, but I don’t know what that name is…

      I love those, too! Not sure what they are officially called, but they remind me of prayer flags. You might search around under that term to see if you can find any instructions on how to make them. I love all the different colors & patterns! Would be such a great way to use up fabric scraps & fat quarters…

      Reminds me of Mexican papel picado (cut paper) decorations. The super colorful flags are everywhere in Texas.

    So many things to love about this, but I’ll be shallow and call out your hair and your green-dressed Bridal Brigade member’s hair. Ohh, but then there’s the tuckered-out littlest wedding guest and the laughing dancing photos and the first look in the field …! Lovely from top to bottom.

  • Brooke

    From one speech therapist to another, congratulations! Looks like a beautiful celebration, filled with much love.

  • Abilene

    I LOVE the photo from the outside, looking into the window. What a beautiful and brilliant shot!

  • http://cloverandlace.com Helen

    Congratulations!! I love all the dancing photos. They are my fave!

  • Kate

    THAT DRESS!!!!!!!

  • Nina

    Quilting squares!!!! Oh I love that. Then when the quilt is made, every night you can sleep under your family and friends’ messages of love from your wedding day.

    I know we talk a lot here about how “blog-worthy” weddings are the point and that we can’t do everything we’ve pinned on our wedding Pinterest boards, but just FYI, I’m pinning this. The suzani, the fabric “bunting”, the bridesmaids dresses (oh! the one in green and her hair!), the waxflower bouquets…

    I’m all over this.
