Hi everyone! It's Heather, Editor in Chief, of it's about details. Since today is our 3 year anniversary, I wanted to share our real wedding with you guys. It was the best day of our lives. In front of God, family, and our friends we became husband and wife. I must admit the budget more than doubled when it was all said and done. We were lucky enough to have my parents financially contribute more than 1/2 of our total wedding cost. I can't thank them enough for giving us our dream wedding!
The weather was perfect that day. We were worried, because it had been 96+ degrees the final weeks leading up to the wedding day and the church did not have AC! But luckily it was comfy in the 80's with no humidity and the old stone church was nice also the perfect temperature inside.
Leading up to the wedding there was lots and lots and lots of drama. Almost EVERYTHING that could go wrong did, from intense family issues to finding out they didn't have enough linens just days before the wedding. We also had to find a new baker just days before the wedding. Even with all the drama, it was a great and wonderful day because I truly did marry my best friend.
We weren't huge DIYers, but we did do some to help keep costs down. We did all of our Stationery ourselves and with the help of my mom. With other DIY projects we had no choice, because we were told just days before the wedding that the baker didn't have the hangings crystals we planned on having on the cake from the beginning. Thus, they couldn't do our cake period. We, along with my mom, handmade all of the hanging crystals. We made them with real swarovski crystals. I must say they were so beautiful and the sparkle was amazing.
Overall, our wedding was so much fun! The dance floor was full, the drinks were flowing, and music was great. We didn't have a grand exit, because we wanted to dance the entire night away with our family and friends until the very last minute!
