March has become a very special month in my little world. It’s the month that I get to marry the man of my dreams. Our wedding is March 28, and these last few weeks are crawling by at a sloth’s pace. I just want it to GET HERE.
We’re having a very small, simple wedding, so I haven’t been freaking out the way that some brides do a month before their wedding. Luckily, we’ve been able to support handmade while planning our wedding, which we thought was very important. We met our photographer, Megan Katauskas, at a craft show I did late last year. Her photographs are natural, unique and beautiful, and I consider it fate that we were at the same show together. I never would have found her otherwise.
I purchased two stunningly realistic silk flowers for my hair on Etsy from Butterfly Enchantress Designs. These flowers look so real that Alex called me at work in a panic the day we got them because he was certain they would die before our wedding.
We worked with another talented artist on our wedding invitations. Jonathan from Ello Invitations created an original design just for us. We love the invitations so much that we’re going to frame one for our apartment.
These photographs don’t do the invitations justice, FYI. The colors are much richer in person.
I decided to try to make a pillow based on this design. It’s getting there, but I feel like something is a little off (other than the fact that they don’t have legs yet). I think they’re too big for the space.
So it’s not quite there yet, but nothing has been ironed on yet, so I can still play with the layout.
