Our wedding was a lot of work. I can only blame myself for this. I was determined to get as much DIY goodness out of the wedding as possible. Because of this, we ended up with a lot of personal touches that I love. These are the things that I think really stand out from that day, and the things that I'm most proud of.
photographers were awesome, I can't wait to work with them again. I had this idea to do pictures of us reading wedding themed comics and this was the favourite from that series. No one does a WTF face like Jagger does.
We knew from the start that we wanted to use CDs as favours because of our history of trading mixed CDs back and forth. Jagger did a great job on the mix, we've gotten so many compliments on it. I took on the labelling, card making and envelope making to have it all tie in nicely.
Another one of my favourite pictures from the wedding. Honestly, we were out on the golf course with our photographers and they stopped at this lookout (it's on the ninth hole so you can see down the fairway before taking your shot to make sure everyone is out of the way). She just looked at us and said, "Do you want some pictures up there?" "Sure," I said, knowing exactly where she was going with this. "You know what to do!" She got her camera ready and we both launched into the full-on tongue in-cheek cheesiness of "I'm the king of the world!" I loved that she totally got our personalities that she knew we would be up for something like that.
And I got the morning of getting ready process that I wanted. It was chill and relaxed getting ready at my mom's house and having her do my hair while my grandma flitted around in the background making sure everyone had enough to eat.
And I got pictures of me getting ready for my wedding while repping the Dharma Initiative. Awesome.
So, there you go. Some of my favourite things from the wedding were some of the cheapest or simplest things. If you're planning a wedding, I really suggest that you look at what details about your relationship make you special and you try and bring those into the wedding. It really made a difference for us.
