Last week I introduced the massive amounts of dinner plates I purchased for our dinner party.
From that blog posting I had a Seattle Goodwill reader, Kelli Kirk, tell me about her wedding were she purchased different plates for their reception. Kelli forwarded on some of the beautiful images taken of her celebration by Josh Trupin of Trupin Photography (http://trupin.smugmug.com/ )and told me about their event…
“We were married in the Methow Valley, central Washington, on Labor Day weekendhttp://trupin.smugmug.com/2009 in an outdoor intimate ceremony (about 50 people). All of our dishes were collected the year prior to the wedding, one at a time, from Goodwill. Mostly the Dearborn store, but also I would hit other locations (Everett often). I also bought mix & match cloth napkins, and found a huge stash of blue glass Mason jars for my flowers at the Everett Goodwill one day. My ring was vintage (not from Goodwill) and I hand made all the boutonnieres and corsages from vintage millinery supplies, most collected in tiny bags or salvaged from old arrangements from the Dearborn Goodwill. We had a huge candy bar, and all the candy dishes and jars were also thrifted.”
I constantly say how lucky I am to be introduced to such talented and creative people through my Goodwill shopping, and Kelli’s a perfect example! Thanks for sharing your special day with us all Kelli, you are truly another THRIFT-SPIRATION!
