since the house was already decorated for fall, i chose that as the theme/color scheme. the photo above is our dining room table before the party festivities. i was tickled to find that table runner on clearance at target. it's fall colors, but also incorporates the blue from our dining room. i got the blue pumpkin from hobby lobby...another new addition this year, and i love it.

this is matt's mom as she entered the house. we had everyone tucked into the kitchen and den so they couldn't see them until they walked down the hallway.

this is the table after most of the food had been set out. i handled the invitations, decorations, etc. matt's sister-in-law did most of the food and it was all so very tasty.

we had about 45 folks in our home to celebrate this incredibly special day.

with the invitations, everyone received one of these "memory cards" and they were asked to write down a memory, story, note, etc. about the couple and bring it with them. i had some blank ones on hand in case anyone forgot. i was really surprised (and pleased) how many people participated in this activity. these notes, combined with photos from the event, will be put into a photo album for the couple. i created the cards in PSE7 with the same digital elements used on the invitation.

and some obligatory posed shots at the end of the evening...
