What we wore...part one

Continuing with the weddings posts now comes one of my favorite parts... what we wore. I was in love with all the "fashion" from the wedding I wanted everyone to look good none of those ugly bridesmaids dresses or stuffy groomsmen tuxes for me... I had a very detailed picture in mind and I think that once again I was able to achieve the look that I was after. Considering the wedding was going to be a semi relaxed affair in the mountains I wanted the clothes to reflect that as well.

It's a Pinterest Project!

So I finally joined Pinterest. I sorta refused to join while in the midst of wedding planning because I knew with the magnitude of information and ideas out there I would never get anything done and so many weddings were beginning to look the same because of Pinterest I wanted mine to be different, also I figured if I didn't look I could think that the ideas I came up with were totally original and all my own instead of finding out that someone back east (or where ever) already came up with them. So now since I have some time on my hands I figured I'd give it a whirl. Yep its addicting, yep you can lose hours pinning or going through boards, this I all knew but I have decided that if I am going to spend time pinning then I can spend equal time doing. So here it is my first Pinterest Project. I took this pin and figured how hard could it be...

Location, Location, Location...part 2

I say part 2 since I have posted on choosing the location already (you can catch up here). After all was said and done it was the perfect backdrop for our perfect day. The Lodge and all the people there were great, I couldn't have asked for things to go better. Of course there are always little hiccups but nothing that even mattered. Everything played out perfectly and I think all of the guests were stunned at how gorgeous the scenery was. Take a peek for yourself.

Now that the Wedding is over I have more time and plenty to talk about...

Yep I'm still here. I know it's been a while, well a long while but I have reasons... though I'm sure all the master-bloggers out there wouldn't let moving, getting a new puppy and planning a wedding get in their way. But to be honest I really wanted to post all about the wedding before the wedding but I didn't want to give it all away but now... buckle up cause I'm spilling all the details.

When me and the Hub got engaged last July it didn't take me long to plan and map out exactly what i wanted for our wedding, and being slightly OCD and a more visual kind of person with not much photo editing skills and having refused joining Pintetest (until now you can follow me here) I went old school... and created a Power Point.

Who Says You Can't Be Lazy and Creative...

Yesterday may have been one of the laziest days ever... I think I slept in till 1, never got out of my pajamas and just lounged around with my Love and the animals. In between lounging I did have some wedding ideas on the mind. If you all keep tabs on any blogs you may have seen the subway poster art that is all the rage. here are some examples


Well some have gone a step further and made them... well let's say "cutesy"


I'm not really one for the cutesy ones but one day a while back while perusing the Internet for wedding ideas I came across an Etsy shop (which of course I didn't save the name of...whoops) that had taken the Subway art one step further and personalized it for a couple. I thought the idea was actually kinda genius and a fun touch for wedding decor and being the kinda do-it-yourself kinda girl I sat down at the trusty laptop to give my hand a go at it... this is what I ended up with

I like how it tells a story, albeit the Campbell's Condensed Soup version. I have a vision of this blown up and displayed at the sign in table or something at the wedding to give our guests a glimpse into our little story. This is still a rough draft, I may still tweak a few things design wise, but having just been messing around I think it turned out pretty good. I am defiantly drawn to wedding decor that drips with personal touches. I know that for us I want our guests to feel like they are not just attending a ho-hum cookie cutter wedding. I want them to leave feeling like they know us a little better, and that they were given a glimpse of our life together and are as excited about it as Clint and I are. I also like how we can keep this and hang it up at home and have a reminder of how we got to where we are together. Cheesy? maybe... but I love a little cheese now and again.
