Wedding details | The Party | Part 1

The moment you've all been waiting for. The inside scoop on my wedding details. 
For those who don't know we did a lot on our own. "we" as in my mom. 

 I had a general idea of what i wanted.
I knew I needed a dress i would love and a great photographer.

 Other than that i told my mom i wanted, an elegant/timeless wedding and she took it from there.
  Most people would never let their mom just take control but for those who know my mom she and I are practically the same person. 

 She would get the most creative ideas and put them all together.  
The reception was beautiful (from what i can tell in the pictures.) haha.  

That day was a huge blur and
 just feels like a beautiful dream!  

kids table
banana cream pudding
cucumber sandwiches 
strawberry shortcake                              
teriyaki chicken kabobs 
vegetable cudité

shrimp cocktail
fresh raspberry lemonade

last but not least,
cotton candy as the parting gift.
of course. 

au revoir

Holiday Banner

a few weeks ago i found a banner at target that was so cute, so i thought.
 i got it out of the box and it just wasn't doin' it for me. 
so i thought i would create my own.

this banner is cuter then anything you could ever buy!
 and guess what, it was like $20 to make. which is a even bigger score! 
 I just went to Michaels and got paper and wooden letters.  Some were black already, some weren't.
 So the ones that weren't i just spray painted.  This took me less than an hour to make! 
  I love being crafty so this was right up my alley!  

I had a paper cutter, which i highly recommend.
  It just gives you the perfect straight lines that you need.

here are them up close individually so you can see how cute it really is.
sometimes i feel like pictures don't capture the best detail!

How cute is this owl witch i found from Rod Works?!
 I live seriously 30 seconds away from Rod Works. 
sooo I can see this being a big problem in the near future!

Final out come.  I would say this project was a huge success!!
 Not to mention, INCREDIBLY easy!
I may or may not be making one for every holiday now!!

Wedding Details | Loved Ones

I've said this before and i will say it again.  It blows my mind that all of mine and jimmys loved ones were in the same place and same time just for us, on our magical day.  That being said I couldn't be more grateful for the wonderful people jimmy and i both have in our lives!  We are who we are because of every person that attended our wedding.  The best family and friends anyone could ask for!  

i die over that little face.
my one and only nephew,  jackson.

the moment we pillowed talk about for years.

my party people.
