I think they turned out WONDERFUL!!! I now finally feel like I can complete our album. All the details that I had thoughtfully planned, are now accounted for. (One of those images is the the image above that I made our Blog banner- its my favorite!)
Katie knew that we had our reception in the barrel room at Delaney, so she used dark, rustic colors and woods so that the images would not look out of place in our album.
love this shot! we never got a shot of our 3 rings all together :) And of course, my lovely Eiffel tower in the background. I actually gave each of my bridesmaids, house party, and family members this very Eiffel tower ornament at my bridal luncheon as a memoir from our weekend. (Thank you Restoration Hardware!)
our cake toppers were my favorite! We had them custom made from Etsy! You can't really tell, but my girl's wedding dress was painted to look like mine :)
I bought this on Etsy as well with the intention that Griffin would use it instead of a ring bearer's typical pillow... after watching him sling the pillow around at the rehearsal dinner, we opted to keep it as the pillow ;) The plate is adorable and says "With This Ring" and our wedding date "10.30.09" - its a great keepsake!
My second favorite image. This was my grandmother's broach and I wore it at our reception to represent / honor her. I loved that the bottom right crystal fell out... it was perfectly, imperfect.
These were an adorable etsy find- my earrings for the church ceremony.
oh brother... the tale of the wedding shoes! Read the story HERE. Needless to say, there was NO WAY these puppies would be photographed except for a stressful last second (literally) shot before I walked down the aisle! They were a great find at DSW thanks to my bridesmaid Katie! I wanted something to complement the flower embellishment on my dress and these were exactly what I was looking for but SUPER hard to find! (Katie Norris had to photo shop the HECK out of these b/c my shoes were so dirty by the end of the evening- she did awesome!)
My beautiful ring and garter... this was my "something blue"- it was the lightest blue I had ever seen! I loved my lacy garter!
We have zero shots of our food tables... dang! Hard to re-create that, but we did still have the menus my mom did calligraphy on. We wanted to have a theme- All American food (above) and French cuisine crepes!!! (below) Then we had a fruit, cheese, and salad bar at the long table in the middle. It was so yummy and a fun way to blend our heritages.
BIG FAT THANK YOU TO KATIE NORRIS!!! I love our images.
I hope you enjoyed hearing the stories behind each detail as well :) Have a great weekend- hooray for GORGEOUS weather.... Spring. Is. Near. Hallelujah!
