This morning I stumbled upon our ‘vows.doc’ file while cleaning out my desktop storage. I remember us printing these out the afternoon before our wedding. We printed THREE copies of our vows. #1 for Greg to keep in his suit jacket-Those were the ones we would be using at the ceremony. #2 I packed in our luggage as backup in case the first copy got lost or spontaneously combusted . #3 was backup to the backup that we kept in the car….. Just in case #1 and #2 didn’t survive 🙂
Our vows were an extremely important part of the wedding, writing them came easy. We knew what we brought to each others lives, and what was important to say. We read them aloud to each other a few times before the ‘official take’ never without dry eyes. In case you were wondering what was said…. you can take a look, here is the copy of our vows vis-à-vis copy #4
Yes, and..please hold us accountable to them.
Gregory, good morning honey. Thank you for reading my posts even when it’s just a picture of a watercolor whale… that I didn’t paint nor have references to credit I just wanted you to know that you are indeed my immovable anchor, the one place on earth where I can go to always for anything (credit: his vows) You put my stars back in order and with you I feel completely seen and loved. And yes, I’ve had two cups already…NO, not rum!….Coffee silly… with rum!………JK MG LOL MMK (props to the kids, now we know how to speak in all caps)
One of the perks of having a small wedding is that you can include special details on a much smaller scale. For the invites we wanted to create a vintage-y, romantic look that would also be a keepsake for our parents. The idea of printing on cloth really appealed to me. Greg wears pink very well, I think it’s cute that he calls it ‘faded red.’ So I came up with the font layout on top of a ‘faded red’ hankie design, printed it on cotton, folded it handkerchief style, enclosed in a cardboard sleeve, and placed a kraft-colored heart seal on the back. It was meant to be a quick sample idea of what I had in my head, but we both liked how it turned out, we didn’t change a thing. So here they are:
( I excluded the date, time, place in these photos. They are located just below our names in the same font as above our names. It’s a square, cloth invite that I plan on framing)
I always admire bloggers who have the art and eye for creating these wonderful wedding color boards or should I say inspiration boards.
Thank you ‘Paper Doll Romance’ for putting this together and for the blog mention! (my hearts are on the right and can be purchased from my etsy shop)
One of the best perks about having an Etsy shop is getting to meet new people from all across the globe who share a passion for trend, fashion and paper crafting :O) I recently got a message from, Stephanie, a writer for,
