The Details

Today I want to share some details from the Wedding... I am having to resort to the ones from my iPhone, since I left my big girl camera at home..  I wanted to share some of the Details we used for the "Book Theme" wedding.  Since the Bride and Groom love to read- they thought an antique book theme would be a lot of fun.. I loved it!!! 
This was the photo included in the invitations -- carrying out the book theme
Photos by Latishalyn Photography and Heidi Tebrink


We used antique dressers for the favors which were coffee and tea pods since this couple likes coffee with their books! 

Antique books tied with Lace and a rusty key were part of the table decor
The florist did an amazing job!!  These items were getting all set up when I took these.
I collect vintage Silver teapots and vases- so we used them for all the flowers

This door was family photos from both sides of grandparents and parents wedding photos.  The backdrop was an awesome shabby door

Thanks to Pinterest, I was able to recreate this little saying and put it on a canvas.


Flash forward to the day of the wedding.. These bridesmaids had a sleepover and they all wore their monogramed tees to the Hairdresser on the wedding day.  Thanks Carly for this photo


The lovely ladies all ready to head to the wedding....


Here's one I found of the final fitting!!

More of the Story

One Bad thing about being "Mother of the Bride" is that you don't walk around with a Camera in your hand on the wedding day!!!  Luckily, some friends of the "Mother of the Bride" do!!!  While we wait for the Professional photographer to finish up her work, I will share these pictures taken by my dear friends from Iowa, the Bayers... It was so sweet of them to share them!!  I wanted to post some of my favorites!!  
We also have a hashtag #schlenkerwedding for those of you on Instagram- lots of pretty shots there...


From the Back of the Ceremony

Vintage Books were hanging down the aisle with 1 Corinthians 13 verses 

The guys are all waiting
 Keep checking back as we get more and more and look for me to post the photographers pictures as soon as we have them!!
Loved the Mint Green Cake!! 

Here's the Proud parents!

WELL, the Big day happened on Friday!  We had such a delightful day and I thought I'd share the part of the story I got to photograph...
