Pshew...I'm excited about being able to start on some swaps after my year long engagement hiatus. We had a great time at the wedding and we received tons of complements on all the DIY stuff! Yay...guests really do notice!
Here's just a few of my DIY projects.
To see more check out my knot bio http://www.theknot.com/co_profileview.htm?profilename=LeCirage
and our professional pics are here http://www.johnlewphotography.com/slideshow/carter/index.html.
And even more pics on my flickr page! http://www.flickr.com/photos/feelingismutual/

Our wedding invites  (letter press)

Thank you cards (print gocco)

Rehearsal Dinner Invites (staples copy center ^_^)

Program (home laser printer...see how the "quality" of printing goes down as time goes by?)

Sandalwood fan (a huge hit with warm ladies and guys who wanted to be ninjas. letter press tag)

Buttons (tags were printed at staples, buttons constructed by oneinchround.com)

Table Numbers (print gocco and stencil on wood)

Seating Chart Poster (once again from staples copy center... one of my bridesmaids works there)

Family tree memory waall thing (plywood with stenciled "wall paper", moulding, ribbons and dollar store frames. It got a little beat up after the wedding before  I could get a pic)

Parents and grandparents wedding pics, our engagement pics and two childhood pics.

Screenprinted shirts

groomsmen shirt

bridesmaid shirt

My first garter attempt...don't make fun!

Thanks for looking!

i have a confession to make.

when i first saw a few of your wedding crafts. i wasn't too sure about them. NOW THAT I SEE IT ALL TOGETHER.... WOW

not only were you a beautiful bride, everything looks great!!

i love the colors, theme, images, and most of all your sense of fun and love shows in everything.

i hope my wedding (this coming october.... shameless plug  Roll Eyes ) is half as lovely as yours.

may god bless your marriage with an eternity of love and understanding

Beautiful!  I hope you dont mind, but i took the liberty of spot-colorizing a couple of your lovely pictures (hm, thats probably illegal, isnt it?)

(eesh, the quality isnt great- had to printscreen them off the website...)


Craftster needs you!

I love my husband!

You were absolutely beautiful and your crafts are amazing! I hope mine will look so awesome and well put together when I get married!

I'm no longer a moderator, but I will always love June 2005 - October 2008

I've been leaning toward orange and blue as wedding colors lately and now I am convined, they look so cool!  It's really nice and very inspirational.  Thanks for posting.

Absolutely fantastic. I especially like the silhouettes of your groomsmen and bridesmaids, used in a few places, I think they're so cool.

loved the colours!
we were going to do green & papaya, but it became green & black.

I left a message in your bio shoutbox!
Beautiful wedding!

everything looks so cool and very interestingly (in a supergood way) done! i like it a lot.

AND!!!! my husband and i used black and white silhouettes of us looking at each other for our invitations, programs, thank you cards, advice cards (strewn about the reception tables - we didn't use place settings), rehearsal dinner shirts, and the signs we used to direct people to the reception site (22 miles away!). isn't that funny? of everything i did for the wedding those silhouettes were what i got the most comments for!!

anyway, great job and happy marriage! it is yay for being married!! congrats!
