Wedding Shadow Box

I thought I'd pop back over here from my Newlywed Blog and post about the project I did this weekend. If you haven't found me at my new blog, please come visit! There's a lot more going on over there than here ;)

I found a really pretty white shadow box at TJ Maxx over the weekend. I thought this would be a great way to display sentimental items from our wedding. So, here's what I put together yesterday:

I included a wedding invitation and an envelope with the amazing calligraphy, my garter, a rose from Kevin's boutonniere, cocktail napkins, drink stirrers, matches, the reception menu, and even a box from the favors. I think it came out pretty nicely. I can't wait to hang this up. At the moment, I'm thinking of doing a gallery wall in our bedroom with this at the center and pictures of us around it. I'm really excited to be able to display our invitation and other wedding items, without them having to be stuffed away in a scrapbook somewhere.

Hopefully that will inspire any of  trying to figure out what to do with all of these little keepsakes after your wedding.  :)

Wedding Album

We recently received our wedding album from our photographer. I love it and know it will be such a wonderful keepsake. We got a GraphiStudio album and it's great. Check out the pictures below. 

This is probably my last post here! So, I hope you've enjoyed reading about my adventures from start to finish of planning a wedding.  I think I've done enough recap/post-wedding posts now, lol. 

Check out our newlywed blog for more fun and to see what we're up to now. :)

Wedding Film

Our videographer posted the trailer for our video on his blog today. We were SO excited to receive the full film (105 minutes) earlier this week. We watched it as soon as we got it, and we love it so much! Cinematrimony did a phenomenol job with our video and I am so glad that we chose them as our videographer. They work out of Charlotte, but will travel anywhere for weddings. I love their style and they really make your wedding look like a movie!

For any of you who haven't yet decided if you should get a videographer, definitely don't hesitate. It's an investment and will be a great momento for you to look back on in the future. We're so happy with the final product and they were great to work with leading up to and on the big day.

Our reception was fabulous, lol, if I say so myself. Everything, seriously, the food, decor, atmosphere, and people, turned out to be better than we had even expected. I have a TON of pictures, so here's a selection of my favorites!

Pro Pics: Portraits

Here's a selection of the portraits that we took after the wedding. It started to rain right after the ceremony, so we ended up having to do all of these inside. I was hoping to do a lot of nice shots outside, but the weather changed this. However, we ended up getting to enjoy the cocktail hour with our guests, so it all worked out!

Pro Pics: Wedding Ceremony

Our photographer had our pictures uploaded online so fast, before we were even back from the honeymoon! So, I'll share some of the pics he put online.

Our ceremony was wonderful and the decor looked amazing. I was really impressed with the florals that Fresh Affairs made for us. We had a fabulous altar arrangement, unity candle decorations, and pew bows... Lyn is so creative and truly an artist! We weren't allowed to have photography during the ceremony, so we don't have pictures of the ceremony. But, we did have a videographer, so it we'll be able to watch it later! Here are some of the pictures that we did get.
