Yes. That is what I want to be. A glue-gunning, Buble-listening, coffee-drinking wedding slave.
Nonetheless, life moves on, and to ease the pain of post-wedding-distress-disorder one can always look forward to the day when they receive their wedding photos. (I suppose there is also the alternative of spending time with your brand-new husband, but this is a post about wedding photos so...) I got mine not long ago and was so so so so excited to look through them. I don't want to post them on Facebook until I've been able to share some of the special ones with some special people, but I thought I would offer a little sneak-peek here on the el blog-o.
These are some of my favorite shots that are reminiscent of my wedding-slave moments. I loved all of the DIY touches we had in our wedding...I just loved doing them. And when my friends got there, I was absolutely in my element to have them all gathered around in my parents' living room, hot-gluing, listening to love-songs, sucking down coffee...
Not to mention the glory that is to be had when you're browsing wedding websites realizing how much money you saved by being a DIY wedding-er. So great. Go ahead and join in my happiness as we look at some of my favorite DIY details...
I'm pretty sure I already expounded on my love for our altar in the Pinterest Challenge post, but in case you didn't catch that one I'll repeat that I love it. Love it.
Our centerpieces were simple but, in my mind, perfect. We alternated between three different designs: book settings (top image), lanterns (bottom image), and a vase and flower setting (not pictured). I really liked them.
The flowers, while not exactly DIY, were another detail that I really ended up loving. We ordered hydrangeas and roses in bulk from Sam's club and the top image is how they looked in the back of the car...soaking in their water. I love that picture. The bottom image is what my bridesmaids carried down the aisle. I found those lanterns at a Goodwill, and my friend Victoria (gifted at flower-ing) attached a little lace and a single white rose. Why a single white rose? Well, that's a detail from my relationship with Dan that carried over nicely into the wedding.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peak of our wedding photos. These, and all the rest you'll see, are the beautiful work the lovely Sara Bost. This link is to her Facebook page, in case you want to hit her up yourself for some photos. She did a great job.
What do you think of our little details?
