Kelly & Ivo had a down home wedding right in Ivo’s parents backyard in Lake Havasu AZ. Their wedding had everything a wedding should have and more. Great food, great friends, homemade desserts and even homemade shots for the guest to take home as favors. I loved everything about it but most of all how emotional everyone was. Lots of tears of joy! Be sure and read Kelly’s wedding recap below the images.
the favors made by ivo’s brother, roko, were limoncello. the croatian liquor we toasted with was Kruškovac – which is a pear liquor. ivo’s mom made some croatian pastries, my mom made the rest of the desserts – cupcakes, truffles, a norwegian wedding cake, brownies…
we collected all of the plates and vintage napkins, mostly from thrift stores and ebay. my mom made all of the table runners out of burlap. ivo, my sister, and i made all of the clay rocks with everyone’s names stamped on them. i spray painted drywall with chalkboard paint for the table seating, and all of the table numbers. ivo made the arch out of birch and twine. my best friend, molly, collected all of the lavender – which we dried and used in vases and for our bouquets. we bought baby’s breath from the farmers market and used it, as well. my sister made the HULJEV letters with all of our pictures from over the past 7 1/2 yrs on it. my sister also painted the beautiful canvas with the tree – as our sign in book.
Ivo’s dad roasted the traditional pig and lamb and the rest of the catering was Shugrues
my dress was a whopping $150 on ebay
my hairpin was by chelsea
ivo wanted me to add that his shoes are nike cortez :)
