our wedding: the recap

After making so many inspiration boards for our wedding (many of which I couldn’t share here because I did such a bad job remembering where I found the photos!), I thought I might as well make a couple out of our own wedding photos. I’m not quite sure why I wanted to do this, other than it was really kind of fun. And since inspiration boards were where the wedding planning all started, it seemed fitting that that’s how I should end it, too.

It is a little bittersweet to be done with our wedding planning. Despite all the tears (oh yes, there were tears) it was a lot of fun and was the biggest project we’ve pulled off yet!

As soon as I finish writing it, I’m going to have a “wedding graduate” post for A Practical Wedding. If there were two things that were most important about our wedding planning, it was that we only spent time and money on things we enjoyed, and practicality was a major priority. I’ll leave it at that for now, and I’ll let you know when my “two cents” are up on APW.

Have a great weekend!

I’m in the very early stages, brainstorming, getting a feel for what I would want in a wedding…and I have to say, yours is so beautiful! It looks real and heartfelt yet also very stylish. Thanks for the inspiration, best wishes!

I love these boards. Sigh. And I love the happiness. I did not see your original inspiration boards, but somehow I suspect these are better.

{Also, I love that you admitted to tears. Because really. Who doesn’t shed a few?}
