Wedding Post 2: The Tree!

Okay, so if I have not mentioned already, my dad is awesome. Seriously. He rocks. When we were first planning my wedding I asked for a simple sign. I wanted it to have arrows pointing to each area and add the "This Way" and "That Way" elements of Alice in Wonderland. Something like this:
Well, at the time of asking for this, my family and I watched the new Burton Alice in Wonderland and I had been playing it a lot because I was OBSESSED. I guess seeing the tree in that movie inspired my dad. Because instead of a little sign like above, I was surprised by this:

 The tree had 5 total signs: Ceremony, Reception, "This Way," "That Way," and "Must be this tall to wed." It is hard to tell in these pictures, but the branches are shaped like hands, pointing in their respective directions.
Also, to explain this sign below, this summer while out doing some wedding shopping, a very rude woman informed me that I was too little to get married. She made it clear I was old enough, but insisted I was too little. We all had a good laugh about it and it resulted in this:
 There is one more element about this tree that I TOTALLY forgot to have Amber photograph, so I will have to see if I can get any good shots of it. There is a hidden face in this tree! Yeah. Like I said. He is awesome.

This is SO amazing! I love it. Your whole wedding looks like it was sooo unique and fantastic :)The "you must be this tall..." sign is such a cute touch!
