My husband and I will be celebrating our one year wedding anniversary this Sunday. So I thought I'd share our wedding with you. I've decided to break it up since it would be picture overload! So this post is dedicated to the setting of our wedding and all the items I made.
I was never the girl who dreamed about my wedding. When we got engaged I really had no idea where to begin or what I really wanted, other then I wanted to share the day with my family and a few of our very close friends. My husband had already been married before and had done the whole wedding thing so he would have been happy just doing it at the courthouse. Which I did ponder over this option, but I'm so glad I decided to go the wedding route. As we began to plan our day we realized that the most important thing to us was that it reflected our personalities and passions that we shared.
First and foremost, I wanted a barn! I'm a country girl at heart, plus my husband and I are both fond of the western genre. Lucky for us my soon to be brother-in-law had one in their back yard.I spent the first few months of our engagement (we were engaged for 8 months) searching the web and magazines for ideas on how I wanted to bring the whole thing together. Then on etsy I came across a stamp that read "Lucky in Love" that was circled around double horseshoes that were overlapping one another. Perfect! This became our emblem. I fell in love with bunting, pom poms, ceremony fans, heart shaped paper decorations, and red gingham.
I also knew that I didn't want a typical guestbook. I wanted something that once our wedding was over we could put on display. Since music, my husband is in a band and I met him at one of his gigs, brought us together I decided that we'd put a guitar out that people could sign.
