Who doesn’t love a fairy tale? Kelsey and Guy are both big fans of the book Peter Pan, so it seemed a perfect theme for their wedding. And Kelsey is one of the most creative people I’ve ever met, so she created a way to bring her guests into the novel in the most personal and entertaining way!

I don’t usually start the story of a wedding with the reception decor, but today I am, because it sets the scene so perfectly. I always love decor, but Kelsey managed to transform her tables from just pretty to entertaining. Every table featured a different location in the book, with a multitude of details to really bring each guest into the scene. And how much do you love the fairy lights?!?!

Amazing, right? Kelsey’s devotion to the perfect details is absolutely amazing.

The setting for this fairy tale wedding was also perfect, at Glendalough Manor.

Another wonderful detail are these robes for the bridesmaids. I want one!

And I have to say, doesn’t Kelsey look like a real-life Disney princess?

They decided to do a first look, which was so perfect in this beautiful setting!

And are you ready for the absolute sweetest detail of the day? Peter Pan and Wendy exchange a thimble and acorn in a particularly precious excerpt from the book:

“I think it’s perfectly sweet of you,” she declared, “and I’ll get up again,” and she sat with him on the side of the bed. She also said she would give him a kiss if he liked, but Peter did not know what she meant, and he held out his hand expectantly.
“Surely you know what a kiss is?” she asked, aghast.
“I shall know when you give it to me,” he replied stiffly, and not to hurt his feeling she gave him a thimble.
“Now,” said he, “shall I give you a kiss?” and she replied with a slight primness, “If you please.” She made herself rather cheap by inclining her face toward him, but he merely dropped an acorn button into her hand, so she slowly returned her face to where it had been before, and said nicely that she would wear his kiss on the chain around her neck. It was lucky that she did put it on that chain, for it was afterwards to save her life.

 

So Kelsey’s bouquet included an acorn, and Guy’s boutonniere featured a thimble. She also wore an acorn in a chain around her neck, which Guy put on right after their first look.
