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. :)
