I’ve waited my whole life to see these pictures! However, I wasn’t a girl who started planning my wedding at 5. Although, I still did the whole Kelly + a boy’s last name that I was crushing on. I actually ordered my dress a little late, and had to rush order it, getting it 2 weeks before the Big Day. And then I had to do alterations and bridal pictures. A lot of our wedding was DIY. Oh. P.S. A band is the way to go. We’ve been married a little over 2 months now, and people are STILL talking about the band. (If you’re looking for a band in the Austin, Texas area, I’ve got the band for you.) It’s very much worth splurging for.
Flowers were the last thing on my mind. About 2 weeks before the wedding, one of my bridesmaids called around and helped me order some. And they turned out perfect! First, let me say, we had a peacock themed wedding. Picking colors was the hardest part, but once that was taken care of, everything else fell into place. Weird, huh?
These were the other flowers. We hung 8 shepherd’s hooks along the pathway at the ceremony site, then we wrapped twine around mason jars and ever so carefully hung them from the hooks. The flowers were a nice touch. As you can sortof see in this picture, on the chairs closest to the pathway, we tied peacock feathers to the chairs with natural colored raffia.
The guest book table!! : Troy and I went to a bookstore and found two coffee table books that we used for the guest books. One was of old Austin and the other old Galveston. We made the pens by hot gluing a feather on a fountain pen and wrapping ribbon around it.
See what I mean about the band thing?
That’s the husband, crowd surfing.
That’s my brother bear and new husband!
