The Best Day Ever...Details, Extras, and Outtakes

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

This is it friends...I can't believe we've finally reached the end of the lookback at operation wedding. However, I can't help but laugh to know that I am still recapping our wedding when I am almost half way through my pregnancy--what can I say, we move quickly ;).
I just wanted to say a big thank you to so many of you for all the sweet comments and such from the first glances at our special means so very much to me that my hard work and planning was not only what I wanted, but it looks as though I may have helped some other brides in the process and that is a great feeling.
Here they are, all the little extras I just had to throw in for good measure:

the detail of my wedding gift from my dad...cannot wait to pass this on one day!
my wedding gift to jeff...a new watch engraved "forever and always, 6.11.11" and the quote book i made for him...i wrote him a letter and significant quote for 1 month leading up to the big day! big winner in his book he says ;) 

 prettiest church in nashville

 i want to put my dress on now please ;)

 More details from the reception...I just can't get enough!

 My chivallri chairs...I don't care what people say--they were worth every penny
custom signage for some of the tables
strawberry and goat cheese salad served in martini glasses--loved it
some of my favorite simple and chic

crafts by mom and me...wooden letters painted with ribbon ties on
our chairs that we rarely got to use ;)

flip flops for people tearing up the dance floor
my framed bridal portrait as you walk into the reception venue
