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 :)
Getting ready details:
A few church details:
Amazing cardbox my crazy talented husband hand-carved and made:
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 :)
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.
