Our Love Story Pt. 2

View More: http://leahfontaine.pass.us/lindseyandbrandonwed

So you should know by now how we met…right? I mean, if not, scroll back and read Pt. 1 first ;). And you know how he proposed, so let’s chat about the wedding, shall we?

Now this was before I even started lettering, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to take advantage of my own services, but that didn’t stop me from DIY’ing basically everything.

Our engagement was 2.5 years long. I specifically wanted it that way so that I would have ample time to make and plan everything. Oh and save all the money, because you know, weddings are outrageous! So over the course of those 2.5 years, I made and I planned. Oh and we bought a house, and we took another vacation to FL, and I got a new job, and yeah, life was CRAY. But we somehow made it work.

_________________________________________________________

We got married on August 22nd, 2015 in Milwaukee, WI. At the Pritzlaff building, space 143 to be exact :). It was a freaking gorgeous day and basically it was perfect. It was everything we hoped and more. Looking back on it, I would’ve changed a few things (for example, my dress)…but what’s most important is that we both had the time of our lives and there were zero catastrophes :).

Warning: My dress was out of control. Like, cleavage central, so please keep that in mind when scrolling thru the pictures. It was NOT supposed to fit like that and was definitely a wardrobe malfunction :(.

Anyways, I will just include captions on some of the photos, but enjoy looking thru our special day!

All photos were taken by Leah Fontaine of Leah Fontaine Photography.

So these are the infamous fabric flowers that I made. Yep, every petal and every flower, hand made by me!

These were actually really pretty broaches that I found online and glued them to my shoes. I had to re-glue them right before I walked down the aisle and after pictures, these were replaced with blush pink flip flops 🙂

Another flower shot! I also had the bridesmaids dresses made by a tailor in town. I bought all the fabric and she brought my vision to life!

Kate Spade earrings for the win! I actually bought these the Thursday before the wedding. Found them at the mall when I was out with my MOH, replaced a dangling pair that I already spent $100 :(.

I made Brandon glue all of the program/menu fans together. He was a pro by the end of it. All of our invitations and paper goods were designed by me thru Zazzle :). I also made those little striped shakers using cake pops sticks and vinyl tablecloths!

This backdrop is also made completely out of tablecloths.

All in the deets. When they asked if I wanted black or white chairs, I said both, and I want them to be striped to match ;). Also, fun fact, we were officially the first couple to get married in this alley!
