Caley and Jimmy: Homestyle with Orange and Caspian Blue

Home Sweet Home for Caley and Jimmy's big day.  Caley and Jimmy decided that backyard nuptials at Caley's parent's home was the route to go for their June 25th summer celebration.  They followed the ceremony with an indoor-outdoor reception at the neighborhood clubhouse.
Caley chose "Caspian Blue" J Crew dressed for her crew to wear while the groomsmen looked sharp in grey suits and striped ties.  Jimmy and Caley are teachers, so there were also many little chalkboard elements.  Orange and green were also incorporated  in the decor with floral by Dahlia A Florist.
Guests arrived and parked at the clubhouse and were transported to the ceremony by Main Street Trolley.  They were then greeted by Caley's brothers and then offered water and lemonade by the awesome staff from Granata's Catering.  In each seat, there was a program that exclaimed "HUZZAH!" at the top and also functioned as a fan.  Caley's mother had landscaped the backyard to perfection, including having a custom arbor built.  The procession emerged from Caley's childhood bedroom.  We stayed on the walkie-talkies with DJ Eric Sewell so he was cued to play the correct instumental version of the correct Beatles song at the correct time. 
After the ceremony, Jeff Hall took some post-ceremony photos while guests enjoyed different stations of food, wrote wishes to the bride and groom, and enjoyed the mild June weather.
The reception was a hit- full of dancing, photo boothing (so not a word, but B&R just might submit it to Websters), and general shenanigans.  At the end of the night, everyone left with a muffin (or 3), a bubble send off (old-school full-sized), and the bride and groom took off in Caley's dad's Mustang Cobra convertible.
Congratulations Caley and Jimmy!  And HUZZAH!
