Our wedding was the most amazing and joyful day of our lives! Nothing went wrong ... there were a few things that didn’t necessarily go according to plan, but everything turned out great! Things that would have normally been a big deal went unnoticed. We were in complete euphoria and just happy to be married! My husband was by my side through the whole planning process. He went with me to vendor meetings and we made every wedding decision together, so to see our day come together was special to both of us.

 

My favorite memory of the day is when I started walking down the aisle and I locked eyes with Matt. From that point, I didn't see anything else. I didn't see any of the guests or the wedding party. I couldn't stop smiling. As we stood at the altar, listening to our priest speak, Matt and I mouthed the words "I love you" over and over. I took in every moment of our ceremony. I listened completely to Father Michael as he spoke so eloquently. I soaked in every word. And as I said I do, I meant it with my whole heart. I was told by someone that during your wedding ceremony, you don't really hear anything because it's all a blur. Well, mine wasn't like that at all.  I heard everything and took in every moment, every word.  When we were pronounced husband and wife, we walked past our loved ones, hand in hand, and again, I don't remember seeing anyone except Matt. Our day perfect.

Just some of the DIY projects we took on!

 

i designed the bubble tags and my hubby tied them. They matched our dance floor lighting :)

 

The escort cards I designed to match the reception. Hubby freaked out when I said each one had to be cut, then scored, then folded. But it all worked out ;)

 

our beautiful head table with custom gobo lighting, that I had to have :)

 

our DIY table numbers and CD favors :)

 

'signature drink' table tents that I designed and we placed at each table

 

I love love love how beautiful our reception hall looked!
