I always meant to share a bunch of photos and details from our very home-spun wedding last year, but just never got to it. There are more that I would like to show you, but for now here are a few of my favorites that I actually have on my computer. :)
My father and I. He just doesn't look like himself without that hat!
I bought my dress at an antique store about a year prior to getting married. Actually, I wasn't even dating anyone at the time. I absolutely fell in love with the dress, and it just happened to fit me perfectly, and the best part is that it was only $40! Can't beat that, right? :D
The jacket was made of a lovely copper colored velvet and lined with taupe satin. The pattern is from the mid-40's. I love how it turned out. I made it in preparation for a chilly day, but it ended up being in the 60's all afternoon. I had to wear it anyway, though. ;)
I made my veil, and love everything about it except that it pulled my hair back too tight so my hair looks a little goofy. Oh well!
My sister Sarah made my wedding bouquet. She is amazing.
I think this was at "I now pronounce you man and wife!"
The wedding party. Bridesmaids are all sisters except the two on the far left--although they are practically sisters too. ;)
We wanted to keep the wardrobe simple and relatively inexpensive for our wedding party. We also thought it would be great if they could actually wear their attire again. ;) So we opted for black pants/pencil skirts, matching sweaters over white blouses, and matching homemade flannel scarves. For the girls I thought muffs would keep their hands warm and look super cute. I made simple flower clips for the ladies' hair. I love the way the whole party looks together.
The whole wedding party--flower girls and ring bearers included! Oh, and Josh (in the red). :) The flower girls' jackets were made by my mother in a lighter copper velour from another vintage pattern.
My parents. I love this picture.
We were married at the Little Chapel By The Creek. It was charming.
After the ceremony I let my hair down. I kinda wish I hand't, but again, oh well! These pictures were really fun to take. :D I love Davis' pose in this one.
Our cake. My sisters collaborated on this one. Skylar baked the cake (vanilla with lemon filling--yum!) and Sarah, who used to work at a cake shop, decorated it. Didn't they do a great job?
This is when I bit Davis' finger. I didn't know that I was biting it, but you can tell by his face that he is in pain. Poor guy!
Such precious memories!
I hope you all have a beautiful weekend and a blessed 4th of July!
