First off, I'd like to update this page with my new happy announcement! I gladly accepted the offer to join the Project Wedding Hostess Team in January 2012. I am so honored to be a part of it, and I am here to help in any way I can! So now I will happily share my pink heart ♥
Hey, PW! My name is Faith, and I am planning a July wedding!!! I am keeping most of my bio private so that anyone who might be a guest at our wedding doesn't spoil all the fun! So add me to your friends and you'll get to see all my ideas and all our DIY stuff!
Getting ready for the big I Do♥
This part was so special to me. It was important to me that my mom got the honors of putting on my veil, since it was her veil. We spent a lot of time redoing her almost 30-year-old veil to make it absolutely perfect. And it was. It was my absolute favorite part of the wedding :)

Amazing cardbox my crazy talented husband hand-carved and made:
Aaah, I must say I am SOOOOOO excited to share these... they came amazing and I am so incredibly glad we did this. We went back and forth, and ultimately decided just to do it.. you only get married once, right?!
While I love our actual wedding day photos, I wasn't blown away with them... but I am blown away by these.
We had an amazing honeymoon! We stayed at the same resort we went to the summer before, and we were able to stay for 12 days. It was 12 days in paradise, that's for sure. After the craziness of the wedding, it felt sooo good to just relax. We really didn't do too much. We parasailed and went to a club and also got massages next to the beach, and we got to release 3 baby turtles... a very relaxing 12 days!! I cannot say enough how amazing it was... Aaah, I wish we were back there!!
I wanted to share a very special veil with you guys... this is my mom's veil, which we redid together. Next time I go home I will look for her wedding pictures, because I forgot to take a before picture =( It had one of those big lacy headpieces and a blusher on it, but we removed both of those and cut about 8 inches of length off of the lace veil that we redid. My mom then sewed it onto a comb and barette and we added tons of swarovski gems and beads to give it lots of sparkle. I am sooo incredibly happy with how this came out. I always loved cathedral veils, but the second I saw my mom's veil, I knew I wanted to use it. It was just so beautiful and romantic and classic that I knew it was perfect. My mom really did an incredible job, and I am so glad we got to do this project together and that she let me cut apart and use this for my own day. It truly is going to be one of my most favorite and special things for my wedding day. I have the best mom ever♥
We redid the veil again.. the actual comb piece was a little crooked and it just didn't have the sparkle that this gorgeous veil deserved, so we took that part of it apart and gave it a new comb piece, and added a few more beads too :)
You can see all the beads good in this photo below. I wish we got a better shot of the back of my head with it on lol.
Hi, girls! Here are the all of the signs that my fiance & I did for the wedding. He cut them all and sanded them on the corners to give them that aged look, and I painted and vinyl'd them! I also added gems to a bunch of them, just to give them that extra sparkle that I love :) I'm so glad these are done.. it took up a lot of space on my DIY list, so that crossed out a lot! Hope you like them!
I love these two projects.. they just feel so intimate and so us, and I just feel like the love radiates from both!! So, without further ado, here they are!!
*There are more pages, but since they have names, it would be silly to post since I'd white them all out!!
Hope you like them both :)
And since I reorganized my bio and tried to combine some pages, here are my StD's that we sent out back in November!
I love how they represent so much of us, so that really makes me smile. My fiance loves to do woodworking and carving, so the paper is made of wood!!! I'm so glad that I get to send something out that represents both of us, because I think the groom usually gets left out of most of the planning process! I love that our StD's are different that the typical ones you see. They're just so us... can you tell I'm excited?! Hehe.. ok, here they are:
And a better view of the photos we used:
My wonderful fiance cleaned up the above photo so that your eye goes to the date instead of the seaweed.. he did an awesome job!
Hope you enjoy these too :)
Finally.. after the fact.. I get to show you guys this! This was my husband's big wedding project! It came gorgeous and I love him for doing it =)
All hand carved, then the lid was done with a wood burner :)
