Here are the things i've gotten for the ceremony so far!!!
*Ring Bearer Pillow & Unity Candle from simplybridal1 on ETSY**
We will have two ring bearers...one will carry this pillow and the other will carry my great grandmothers wooden jewelry box!!!
Here's some of our engagement pictures!!! By CMI-Photography! Chris was awesome!
I finished up my cake topper this last sunday! It took me a few hours but wasn't as bad as I thought. I ordered the cake topper from CRAFTY EDDY and I painted it a coral color, then covered in a pearl finish, and sealed it! Then I added hot fix rhinestones with a hotfix tool!!! :)
So we were originally going to do magnets for our std's but that made me nervous! So I saw some in a magazine and found them online but they were super expensive (pictured below)
So I decided to make my own template!!!
And i'll add our E-pic on the top!!! I'm going to buy natural pencils with our website printed in white on them and then I found envelopes made out of paper bag material so that will sort of match the natural pencil!!! :)
Going into my wedding planning I said I didn't want to be stressed and the small things didn't matter to me! HAHA YEAH RIGHT! That changed really fast. Here are the small additions to my look!
EARRINGS: Joy on whiteaisle.com but they are on back order right now so i'm hoping to get them in a few months!
HAIR FLOWER: by AmieNoelDesigns on Etsy!
My garters!!!! By tinarie21 on etsy!
I had been waiting for it for like 7 months! Thought it would happen at christmas...it didn't...thought it would happen for valentines day...it didn't...thought it would happen at easter....it didn't! LOL...so Jeff wanted to go to the beach to take pictures and hang out (not unusual...we live 20 minutes from galveston!). So we shopped around the strand and went to east beach and took some pictures...then we went and ate at the sea wall. It was nice and relaxing because we had both been working very long hours the past few months. So then he wanted to drive down to jamaica beach and look at the houses that were built after hurricane Ike...so we did that and it was nice, but I told him I was ready to go home...but he insisted that he wanted to get a few more beach pictures. (we got what I call a "big" camera a few months ago) So we first turned into a neighborhood and he insisted there were toooo many people! Then drove down to another spot and it was pretty clear. So I took some pictures of some birds...
Then he suggested that I take pictures of the sun setting...which was gorgeous! So I was taking pictures of the sunset and I noticed he was looking around and not what i was taking a picture of! I was getting irritated because HE wanted to go out there and take picture but HE wasn't even paying attention! then I turned once and saw him fiddling in his pocket and at that moment I just knew but sorta freaked...so I just turned around and kept taking pictures!
So while I was taking pictures of the sunset Jeff said "why don't you take a picture of this!" and I turned around and he was holding the ring box! We both would have pegged me for a cryer but instead I just started laughing and couldn't stop laughing (a nervous habit!). It was funny. So then Jeff took the camera and took pictures of me while on the phone with my mom!
Don't mind the roots...lol.
WE then sat on the beach and it was awesome!!!
