Our engagement pics were done by Kristy McSwain, who is also doing our wedding. We had so much fun-although it was the middle of June and soooo hot! They turned out great!

I got so much inspiration from the ladies here at Project Wedding! If I used your picture, please let me know and I will credit you! We are using apple green, navy blue and white for our colors. I am looking for a rustic theme, since we are getting married at a vineyard that used to be a farm!

Because we were on a budget, I tried to DIY as much as I could. All of these projects were fairly inexpensive. Mostly time-consuming, but well worth it!

Its not a great pic, but these are going to be our wedding favors. The tag says "Grow with Love" Leah & Michael 5-7-11. They were really simple and inexpensive to make!

Our menu. I bought a poster frame from Walmart, used chalk spray paint on the cardboard backing, and painted the frame off-white. Voila! Very easy DIY.

This was a mom and dad DIY! My dad cut up some trees he had cut and they bought the top from a craft store and carved our initials.

These are for our sparkler exit. I thought they came out pretty good!

We had a wonderful DJ with DJ Johnny Colvard! He really got the party started! He even got out on the dance floor and showed people how to do dances. I was really worried that having so many group dances would be cheesy, but I actually had so much fun and received more compliments on that part of the reception than anything!
