colter and camille's wedding dinner

So maybe this is a post I should be posting on my personal blog, because the photography in this isn't anything special. But he's my bro, so I'm postin'! Sometimes I feel like I dwell way too much on details, but I was so happy in the ending after all of the work! We did the dinner at Trio Cafe, and they were great to work with my wishes. I loved that the menu had a picture of Colter and Camille..

Today just engaged.. tomorrow Mr and Mrs!!!

I got tons of compliments on how creative I am.. I just stole all the ideas from Martha Stewart. Isn't that how it always goes? Thanks Marth. I made tons and tons of hanging pom poms, sitting pom poms, favor pom poms. I'm cool going without purple and yellow tissue paper for a while. I wish I would have time to get a better picture that did it justice. It looked awesome!

Favors were delicious cookies from little dutch boy bakery. Wrapped in tissue paper, of course.

My table numbers all had pictures of Colter and Camille on the back. Everyone's napkin had a flower on it, too.

Mama Shauna and Papa Bruce. My parents also happen to be parents of the groom.

Meet the bride's parents, Jenny and Arnold West. I actually knew these guys before Colter and Camille knew each other.. I went to school with Camille's older sister.

Mix cd's of the couple's favorite songs. In my family, music is kind of a big deal. I think it comes from my dad. Colter has met someone who shares his same taste in music.. what else can you ask for?

Last, but definately not least.. the groom's cake. I love how this turned out! As I was stressin' about getting everything put together. I opened the back of my car to show my dad how awesome the cake turned out.. It had tipped over! I swore.. A couple times. But thanks to my dad, the cake got fixed (Grandma Shirl was a professional cake decorator.. it rubbed off). Stephanie Morgan, who lives in my ward not only does cakes, but teaches cake classes. If anyone is interested in a cake, she is the girl! She has the best prices! Ever since Colter and Camille got engaged, I'd been wanting to do a fun Nintendo cake. Colter always chose to be Yoshi, so I wanted to incoorporate that, but I think this turned out awesome..

You are a nice sister to go to all that work! Everything looks great. So did you do all of their wedding pictures or just the engagements?
