Inspiration for your road to the altar

Meredith and Josh’s wedding was perfectly preppy – a pink and green color palette, their new married monogram on the programs, a sparkler send off to end the evening. In fact, they were so committed to their color palette, they chose the reception venue (The Bryn Du Mansion) because it had rooms that were pink and green! Be sure to check out the sparkler sleeves towards the bottom, they say “Thank you for adding sparkle to our special day.” Love that!

Dayna and Ian’s wedding is such a perfect way to start off the week – you are going to love all the DIY details! The bride and groom are both so stylish and they each infused their personalities into the event in different and meaningful ways. Dayna personally purchased or made nearly every detail herself, relying heavily on Etsy, Craigslist, thrifting and local antique shops. I love that so many of her details can be achieved on a budget – the ladders and lighting for the ceremony, the hand sewn table numbers and the adorable table assignments (hanging on an old window, nonetheless)!

Ian is wearing his father’s suit from the 70’s that he had altered for the wedding. And since he brews beer as a hobby, he also created a few different ales for the wedding (that is the large white box with the taps you see pictured below). The couple gave out CD’s in personalized covers as favors and I think it is lovely how they carried the theme of “You & Me, It’s Love” throughout the event.

Custom Photobooths

January 6, 2010

One of our favorite things from our wedding are the pictures from our photobooth. When our family was here over the holidays (over a year after the wedding, mind you) we streamed all of them to our TV and everyone sat around laughing hysterically! There are combinations of relatives taking pictures together that no one would have dreamed of, and after everyone consumed a few drinks the images are even funnier.

Ours was just a black and white set up (which I still love the simplicity of) but I also adore these custom photobooths from Thomas Marlow! They can be broken down and shipped to your event pretty easily, and no two designs are ever alike. Aren’t they fabulous? If you’re interested you can contact Thomas directly through his site or by sending him an email (thomas.marlow {@}
