WEDDING PICS, well the preview anyway!

I’ve bragged about her before on here, but our photographer and “new” friend over at emilymillayphotography.com did such an outstanding job capturing our wedding day. Seriously, outstanding. I’m not sure how she narrowed it down to these for our highlight reel and I’m not sure how Mark and I are supposed to narrow it down and pick ones to print, but we will see.

Mark and I did a "first look" right before the ceremony. It was such a special moment to see each other for the first time alone, except for the photogs and videographer of course.

My Wedding Will Look Like Pinterest Threw Up

Pinterest and I have a very strong love/hate relationship. I love that Pinterest has so many great ideas on it. I love that I can waste an entire day pinning things I will never do but think that I might one day. I love that Pinterest inspires me to be creative. I hate Pinterest for all the same reasons. I started my wedding board exactly 5 minutes after Mark proposed and I keep adding things to it every.single.day. Our wedding is in 25 days and I still call my mom almost every day and say

“I saw this really great ____________ on Pinterest today. I think it will only take us a few hours to craft and I neeeeeed to have it on May 10th.”

She sighs deeply but knows that she won’t win the battle of convincing me I do not need yet another Pinterest project on my plate. And so the list keeps growing. My mother has been a saint during all this wedding planning. She has basically put her life on hold for the last year to help me with all the planning- Sorry Dad! She spends all her days off going to appointments, surfing Pinterest and helping me craft. Some days we get a lot of stuff done. Some days we don’t. I literally could not have done this without her. THANKS MOM!

On the … short … list of things we have crafted for this wedding:

  • table runners
  • table numbers
  • cake stands
  • card box
  • pallet signs
  • succulent “J”
  • “LOVE” marquee sign
  • wine bottle glasses
  • drink stirrers
  • menus
  • wood plank centerpieces
  • photo booth props
  • various little decorations pieces here and there
  • a candy bar
  • place cards
  • favors
  • directional signs

Without giving too much away, here is a little collage of some of the above items. I simply cannot wait until May 10th to see it all come together. Thank you again Mom for all the hard work you’ve put into this wedding!!!!
