Looking back: Jill and Harry

This weekend a year ago, Jill and Harry flew over from the UK and got married in a fun and intimate backyard wedding at her mother's house in Fullerton. This wedding has been one of my favorite to date! I realized that I never did a full post of all of the details, other than showing some of Michael Norwood's amazing blog photos.

So, without further ado, here is Jill and Harry's modern geometric wedding:

We pulled the entire decor scheme from the invitations that Jill had selected from Wedding Paper Divas:

We incorporated the W+T (the initials of their nicknames for each other) on many of the details and also pulled inspiration from Bauhaus Designs- very clean, modern and fun,

Half the tables were orange and half were green. The favor boxes contained playing cards printed with the couple's logo, along with personalized pens and pads of paper. Their family is a big game playing family, so they wanted to include that in the wedding somehow. I heard that the family got a lot of use out of them over the next week! They also included Cadbury chocolate bars from England, which Jill frequently stuffs in her luggage when flying to US and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, which she sticks in her suitcase when heading back to the UK.

Love the fun style:

For dessert, we had cake (one of my favorite designs ever!), a grooms cake of a traditional British cake, and cookies from Jill's favorite bakery.

Finally, the lovely Jill and Harry:

All of the amazing flowers were crafted by Kristin of The Treasured Petal. We had so much fun designing this wedding- so fresh and different!

LOVE this look - I'm usually not a huge fan of these colors together b/c they're not done well, but this wedding totally disproved that!
