I've always loved solving the creative problems (well, not problems really so much as...opportunities) for weddings, so my family has graciously let me help with their weddings, my sister, my cousin, and my grandfather, here's some things I got to do for them:
My cousin Jason got married in September of '08 and my sister, Laura, also got married that year in July, so for Christmas I made ornaments by printing these two out back to back and slid inside a clear globe ornament a la ship-in-a-bottle so when you spun the ornament, one couple was on one side, and the other on the opposite!
My Grandfather recently got remarried over the summer and I was happy I could help out by doing their invitations for them. Top fold invite, the design was based on Lilacs, his new bride's favorite flower and the colors for the wedding.
Ok, the colors look kind of wonky on this, but it's the cover for my sister's Wedding Program I designed. Inside we had a kind of playbill introducing the wedding party with pictures and obviously the stuff that tells you what the heck is going on and in what order ;)
Well, I have no really good excuses for why it took so long to post these, but here's the full link to all 800ish pictures from the wedding:
And just a few samples of some of them for us visual creatures:
There are way to many to post in one thing, but trust me - if you're anything like me and love stalking other people's weddings - you will thoroughly enjoy going through all 800 pics - not just the "best of" the reception dancing pictures crack me up, we had SUCH a great time, I couldn't wish for more, and I got my Prince Charming out of it too! Love you ladies, thanks for all your love, laughs and support through the adventure we call wedding planning! :D
Well. To say that it was the best day of my life is the biggest understatement I can imagine, it's like saying, yeah...there's a couple grains of sand on the beach, it was...well, the only word that seems adequate is
I suppose I'll have to do a full recap at some point, but I've just moved all my wordly goods and my entire life to PA with my husband (AHHH!! :D ) and it's been a pretty bizarre, but happily-ever-after-worthy adventure post-wedding, and we had a remarkable honeymoon in Costa Rica (guess there's another post), but here's what we've all been waiting for anyway, you can't fool me, we're all visual beings...
N O N P R O P I C S ! !
Here's just a sampling of my favorite moments captured day of:
Here's my Uncle/Godfather/Officiant and my BM Julie who were walking down to sing their duet, "So This is Love," from Cinderella which brought tears to everyone's eyes, it was beautiful!!!
Here's my dashingly handsome groom, and our amazingly on time, good natured, and supportive groomsmen
And my happy, beautiful, and loving bridesmaids, and my sister, my MOH
Here's my new inlaws - how cute!!
My brother in law with the death grip keeping my Mom upright, we wanted to sew some ShamWows on his shoulders to sop up her eye puddles, but she held it together, she was so very happy for us :D
Can you feel the anticipation, I hope it was this way for everyone too, here comes the BRIDE!!
My dad was so sweet, I barely cried (SHOCKER!!! I thought I'd flood Death Valley from the east coast) and he was all weepy and happy!
Here's some quiet moments during the ceremony, my Uncle, the officiant was HILARIOUS weaving the story of how we met and became engaged with quotes from the Princess Bride :) Everyone said it was the most unique and enjoyable ceremony they've heard, good job Uncle Kevin! We didn't even notice it was raining, we were in our own little bubble of love and happiness (yeah I know I know sap sap sappy!)
Awwwwwwww the kiss!!!
HUSBAND AND WIFE - and the beginning of a fairytale life and night!
Alright Ladies...Here she is...she's popped up in some posts here and there, but NOW it fits and looks Faaaaaabulous! And the next time I put her on...I'll be getting married!!! :D
