Leaving the world more beautiful than I found it.

So our marriage celebration is on June 5th.  I am doing some last minute things.

This is my inspiration board and color palette.

My color inspiration is based alot around my custom ring I had made. Its moissanite and padparadscha sapphire in rose gold.

I bought my dress for only $150 from a prom dress store and I have been heavily altering it.
This is the Photoshop job I did on the stock photo of the dress online.  Its turning out even better than the mock up.

Here is how it is looking these days. I hand dyed a raw silk sash and used it on the waist. I still need to attach some small florets to the yoke and add straps.

We ordered my husbands suit from Overstock.com for only $157! I also got him a seersucker trilby hat but I dont have a photo.

I made this little bracelet from old broken jewelry.

And my final invitations turned out like this. Flickr messed up the colors some how though.

Our decor is bird themed but I have not made any of it only collected the items.
Some tables will have decorated cages and some will have decorated branches.

I will update when more is done!

Oh and I forgot to say that there is more info and photos on my Blog!

The color scheme is simply divine. Your dress looks awesome, and your bracelet recon is great!
