i went through a million different mind-changes when it came to the send off. but ultimately, i knew i wanted sparklers.
yes, i've heard horror stories, and even have a dear friend that was in the midst of a sparkler-send-off-gone-wrong. however, i spent many a'night praying it would be nothing short of pretty, simple, and safe.
i spent a lot of time crafting each sparkler to make sure each guest felt special, and to thank them for staying until the end and being a part of our send off into marriage.
plus, i needed an excuse to buy matches that said "the perfect match" with a flame and our names on it.

HERE WE GOOOO!!!
yay!!! i looooved it!! :)
that is one of the parts of the night that i looked back and said, "wait? it's over?" i wish we had 892374 guests and the sparkler line would've been a mile long! i loved it and it was so pretty!
looking from the outside.
after john and i made our escape, we looked back and found THIS! how awesome?!
we really didn't want to leave with all the excitement happening! haha
and then we made a "heart" or attempted to make a heart, with our sparklers.
this man- i simply, absolutely, genuinely adore.
