At long last here are the photos from our May wedding! We began planning our wedding not long after we got engaged two Christmas’s ago (my favorite Christmas present ever!). The location and theme of our wedding seemed to fall naturally into place. It was at one of our favorite places, a beautiful park where we take our dog Eva for nature walks every weekend.
The theme of our wedding was Country Chic, we wanted an elegant, but yet down-to-earth party that also fit with the theme of the location. Together we worked on the decor with lots of trips to HomeGoods, Michaels and a great salvage shop! We also made some amazing DIY crafts together which I’ve shared on my blog.
My dress was from David’s Bridal (I’m a no-fuss kinda girl). I really fell in love with the way the back of this dress shaped my back.
Mr. & Mrs. Chalkboard Signs from Borden Specifics (I won these!)
Custom ‘Mrs. Smith’ dress hanger from noce. The window garlands were made by me 😀
Flower girl sashes and dog collar sash custom made by CharlieHeartsDiesel.
Homemade Vanilla Extract was our wedding favor. I love that it was something made by both of us. Get the recipe and free label template here.
The Smith’s est. 2013 sign from SaidInStoneOnline.
The table arrangement was designed by me. My husband and I both custom made the blue ball jars ourselves, here’s the DIY tutorial. We also strung all the lights (with some help from friends and family). The two birds on our table were to represent my in-laws who are both gone – we feel like they are with us every time a bird is following us.
