My Wedding

Anthony and I got married on April 27th, 2013 at Bell Tower Chapel in Fort Worth. All photos were taken by Jeremy & Kristin Photography.

Gold Bouttoniere Ideas

Since Anthony and I met at the Cotton Bowl I made the boutonnieres out of cotton bolls. I also had cotton bolls in my bouquet.

These cufflinks were a portion of my wedding present to Anthony. Our first roadtrip together was to the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas to see a Lego exhibit.

These wax-sealed envelopes were stuffed with tissues and affixed to the programs. You can see my full wedding invitation suite, which was featured on Good Day Austin.

I made menus like this for both our food and drink selections. You can find the tutorial here.



These gold flower shutters were one of my favorite wedding projects. You could use full sized shutters to make a gorgeous altar backdrop.







Since Anthony proposed with over 100 balloons, I had to find a way to incorporate them into our wedding.

    What a beautiful day! You are so crafty, love all the details. The paper heart is genius.

    Wow, that heart backdrop is seriously impressive! I love your bouquet, rings, those gold bridesmaids’ dresses, your birdcage veil, the wood slice menu, and your venues!

      Thank you for your kind words about my special day. I think you listed all my favourite parts, minus the groom of course. 🙂
