I will write a post at some point about the last few pieces of October (and also post them, of course!) but first....THE WEDDING! It was amazing. Perfect weather...the venue was beautiful...friends and family everywhere...and of course Maria looked stunning. I could not have asked for a better day for my sister-in-law and her groom. Her mom really was present throughout the whole weekend in so many ways, and even though we there were tears of sadness, there were also so many tears of joy. Lucy would have been proud of the wedding that we put together, and she would have loved the reception! Cheers to Lucy!
I say 'we' because...well, I helped! Maria asked me to help with many special touches to really personalize the wedding and I think that it all came together to create a beautiful event.
These are just some of the things that I helped with specifically that I can now share in hopes that it will be an inspiration to anyone wanting to add DIY details to their own event. ...but these are just some of the special touches, I certainly didn't do them all (omg...there is no way!) ...the groom's family, especially his mom, aunt and sister went above and beyond to make the event memorable as well...as soon as I get a hold of some photos of their craftiness I will post...so...amazing!
And of course a special thank you to the bridesmaids and family that all made it come together...specially Em and Cams...I seriously love you ladies!
Ok...a little less stressed out now. Here are some pics, all the hard work paid off...and the secrecy! (this stuff has been under wraps for MONTHS!!) Check 'em out!
...just a gal trying to get this art out of my soul to share with the world on a DAILY basis...no big deal...check out my ramblings!-JLG
