As seen on Offbeat Bride
From the bride Meaghan: John and I had an out-of-the-box dinner wedding. We had almost nothing to work with, so what we did, we did ourselves. I made all the decor with help from a few friends, particularly my maid of honor Erin and friend Christine. John’s nana Penny did all of our flowers, as she had done quite a bit as a florist in the past. My must-haves were stargazer lilies (a shout out to my mother Jane) and bells of Ireland (a bit of our heritage thrown in for good measure). We also did an Irish handfasting ceremony. My friend Leanne baked our caked (a peach Bellini cake) and her mother baked the groomsmen’s cake (a rum cake). We had planned for an outdoor wedding by the Ocean St. docks in Hyannis, but ended up having our wedding at the Cape Cod Maritime Museum, with only HALF AN HOUR NOTICE! They let us use their site, free of charge, after hours (they closed at four, our wedding was at 4:30!).
Our wedding was so much more than I ever thought I would be able to have thanks to family and friends who were ready and willing to help however they were able, and who were so understanding.
