Both the invitation and program were designed by me! I liked doing my own because I was able to do exactly what I wanted!
We had our invitations printed for free by a friend. I only had to buy the paper. Thankfully, I was able to find some inexpensively that matched our theme perfectly. We used plain white paper with a black border. The invitation kit, however, came with damask sleeves that slid on the bottom of each invitation! We also glued little AB crystals on on the chandeliers.

The photos from the day itself:
My photographer had a few inspirations. Alice in Wonderland and Twilight (cause I am one of those type of girls) One image she used for inspiration is shown below.
Then her version of this photograph with our group...
And so it begins...
We had our rehearsal at the church the night before the wedding. It all went very smooth and quickly. Overall, an awesome night. We had dinner downtown at Buca Di Beppo (this little italian restaurant that serves family style meals). It's such a beautiful place! I didn't get to take any pictures that night, but here are some I snagged from the grandmothers and my mom. Our photographer's pictures will be posted along with these soon!
So, as you can see from my page, I am obsessed with this dress. I had wanted it for a long time and also wanted an excuse to wear it at the wedding. And so, my boy bought it for me for Christmas. It would be my get away dress. I didn't want to wear my wedding dress when we left the reception...so I threw this gorgeous thing on about 20 minutes before we left. Here I am trying it on on Christmas. :)
Grant's little sister bought me the matching converse chucks to wear as well. :)
My best friend and maid of honor Kristen threw me my bachelorette party! First we met downtown at the Hard Rock Cafe for some foods, then we all ran to the circle centre mall for some random shopping! Afterwards, we ate ice cream at the circle. It was a really fun night! :)
