We decided on a Family Medallion Presentation as part of the ceremony to show DH's son how special he is in our lives, and to state our commitment to him and his future.
We bought him this necklace, from www.familymedallion.com:
We liked that it was teenage boy-friendly in its appearance. He loved it, and was so touched when it was presented to him. He cried, we cried, our guests cried... such a sweet moment! I only have one non-pro pic of it:

*Update: My photographers moved their blog and the pics that were here were lost as a result! So these are not all my teasers, just some random shots I dug up :) I'll try to post more when I get time!
We were married May 2, 2009, in St. George Island, Florida. The wedding was beautiful. Perfect. Everything we had hoped for, and so much more!
Here a few of the non-pro photos (courtesy of PW'er lesliedigs):
A few from Tiffany, one of the BMs:
And a couple from my new SIL:
I also loved this one that our DJ snapped on his iphone as the photographer was shooting this. The light was so beautiful out on the beach at sunset:
I saved all these pages so that I could share my inspirations. Everything below is pre-wedding info, with a few post-wedding updates. Hope to help somebody with ideas :)
I originally wasn't going to make programs... but I decided to try my hand at it as a cute little touch for the ceremony. I got lots of help from fellow PW'ers with making a monogram, but ended up using one I made (I didn't know I had it in me, but I was inspired!). Here's my first try:
The whole she-bang... Some of my cuts are a little wonky - it was literally the first time I'd ever used a paper cutter! The next ones should be better ;)
The monogram I ended up using:
I carried the sand dollar motif onto the other pages of the program. I'm really pleased at how they looked when printed!
