I adore how evey detail from this wedding is handmade out of love. It sounds so cheesy, but it so is true. You can absolutely tell this whole wedding was pulled together with the help of friends and family which I think makes it that much more wonderful. I could blabber on and on about the charming details, but I think I will let Tec’s beautiful images take it from here…

Melissa and Pete made soap as favors for guests because that is how Pete asked out Melissa for the first time – he asked her to make him some soap. Chelsea made the
wrappers with the P’s on them.

Chelsea also created the pink, flower poofs resting in Melissa’s hair. If you are interested in ordering a hairpiece, check out her etsy store for more information.

It was actually custom made to look similar to the Melissa Sweet Dora.

The photographer did a really nice job of capturing the couple. I like the poofs in her hair too.
