Here is a link to our slideshow from our photographer she did an amazing job and I think I have watched it at least 50 times.
And finally pictures!!!! I only got about half way through but it is a start.
GOING TO OUR FIRST LOOK
TO BE CONTINUED.... coming up the first look
Here are some of our engagement photos, they were shot at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, we are very happy with them, our photographer, Charlotte is so talented. I highly recomend her www.charlottegeary.com.
I am making about 100 of these green tissue pomanders. I have no idea how I am going to get them to the venue but they will be on the chairs lining the aisle and then on every other chair to bring the green into the room. Directions came from Martha Stewart.
Picture Frame Card Box
My daddy made this card box for us. I love it because you can take it apart after the wedding and use the frames in the house. Directions and inspiration came from its.nicsknack I have to give her big props for this idea. I love it.
Table Numbers - I bought these frames at Family Dollar for $1 each and then just printed out the numbers using Microsoft Publisher.
Reserved Seating Signs - Again Microsoft publisher, printed on card stock and glued to ribbon using Krazy glue, we will use double sided tape to stick to the chairs.
My DIY Programs, cardstock from paperandmore.com
My venue won't allow open flames so my mom bought this beautiful set of hurricane type holders. So gorgeous! The candles and the stands are from Hobby Lobby.
Here is the ceremony that we wll be having.
The flame has traditionally been thought of as a symbol of the spirit. Brian and Leslie, you have learned much in your individual lives. Your mothers are both here to bless your marriage, and it is fitting that they have lit the two individual candles you see here. For it is they who brought you life, and taught you your first lessons about love. Your family members, and friends, many of whom are here with you today, have all been a part of your individual lives, and have shared with you your hopes, your dreams, your triumphs, your sufferings. But at some point the two of you met one another, and something started growing between you that was not just Leslie and not just Brian.
There's a special way you are together that's just not like the way you've ever been with anyone else. You have a way of sharing with each other, of laughing and joking together, that's unlike with anybody else. That special love you felt for one another continued to grow, bringing you to this moment, when you are committing your love to one another, and building a life together. Just as the flame you are about to light is not created solely by either candle, so too is your love not the sole possession or creation of either of you. As a symbol of the spirit of love that has grown between you, I would like to ask you to light the Unity Candle at this time.
I designed our invites on Microsoft publisher and they are finally done. I am so proud of these it felt so good to drop them off at the post office to be hand cancelled. Such a labor of love but so worth it.
I bought my beautiful comb and earrings on Etsy from seller Lulusplendor. They are gorgeous! I am so excited about having a custom piece the comb was made just for me. When I get them in person I will post some more pictures.
