does anyone know that song?
I learned it at camp back in ummmmmmm probably ’95 or something.
we just got done watching a super cute and sappy wedding proposal (the lip dub one) and then of course had to go watch the processional dance one again. we tear up on these videos, folks, for realz.
we’ve been married 8 years now!
time flies when you’re having fun. and kids. and work. and life.
we were obviously married looong before Pinterest, sadly.
I would have had a freaking hayday building on others’ ideas instead of just my own limited imagination at the time, but oh well!
our wedding was kind of a little bit outdoor-garden-at-night themed, thus all the greenery. our “aisle runner” was a a pathway one of my friend’s artsy moms and I painted sort of like cobblestone. I made those hanging lights out of green rice paper (I worked at Blick when we got engaged, so I made sure to stock up on crafty things with my employee discount )
we put a big white picket fence around the perimeter of our big, open church.
we even covered those back lights with green cellophane, lol.
oh yes, and we made a bunch of paper cranes which hung from the ceiling down the aisle.
(I wanted to incorporate some aspects of our various cultural ties throughout the ceremony)
I was trying to find the simple Irish knot cover I made for our program, but I will have to keep looking another day.
back apparently before you could get black string lights, my dad taped up all of these lights and we spray painted and unwrapped them to hang in our church ceiling. magical. and they’ve been used for sooo many weddings and events since then!
although I was sort of able to make do with what we had to work with at the time, I would have been totally in love with Doe Eyed Dear Shoppe had it been around back then! Jenna of I Never Really Told You is on Team Mr. Hottie of IRLO Mashup, and she’s here talking about this dream that she’s found her niche in.
For the longest time I’ve wanted to start a business from scratch and create things that appeal to the “Non-Traditional” bride. I’ve had such a great response to my products in the last couple of months that it leaves me striving for bigger and better goals. I would love to get my products in boutiques all over the country. Not until Doe Eyed Dear did I know what made me truly happy. I was working a 9-5 job at a bank and feeling like a robot. My wonderful husband blessed me with the opportunity to leave my job and start my own business. There is just something so gratifying about creating something for people to wear on the happiest days of their lives. I now know that this is where I’m meant to be.
