Be Our Guest

 

Okay so I figured I would put some of my DIY stuff on here as well…I mean there is an amazing life I lead outside of all of this messy miscarriage business.

We got married on June 16th 2018 and I wanted something really cool for a seating chart so I found a french door on varage sale that cost me like $10 and I just went to town on it.
I sanded the crap out of it, I repainted it white using Fusion Mineral Casement and then I went over it with A grey from Fusion Mineral and made it looked really distressed.

I wanted to find a cool door knob but I couldn’t find one that made sense with the door soo I went without one, I mean if I didn’t leave that part till last minute i’m sure I could have found a cool one.

I used my #silhouettecameo and my computer to make vinyl cut outs of all the table numbers and names.  I then transferred it over so that a table was in each window of the door, I’m not gonna lie it took awhile to transfer it over but that’s mainly b/c the transfer tape I got was really intense…def not the right one to use.   Then since we love beauty and the Beast in this house….(well really all disney but my husband and daughter were doing their dance at the wedding to tale as old as time)  I cut out Be our Guest on vinyl and put it at the top of the door and bam my gorgeous door was finished.

I was overly obsessed with my door and to be honest i’m really sad that I sold it afterwards..someone bought it to use as a picture frame and well I wish that I just kept it.

Check out my photos of the before and after.  Also if you actually read this let me know if I should do a blog about my diy wedding…I mean I may do one anyways but I’d rather some kind of feed back first ūüôā
The 2 photos are done by our amazingly wonderful photographer Caitlin Free Photography 

 

DIY Wedding = Amazing

Hey everyone!!

Okay so this blog is about my gorgeous cousin Mia Purdy and her Husband Darryl Smith’s amazing wedding!¬† I have been waiting for photos of this wedding since the day of so that I could make this post!!¬† Soo needles to say I’m excited for this post and I can’t wait to share their photos with you.

Mia and Dares wedding was it a DIY wedding they put lots of thought and effort into this and worked extremely hard to make it a perfect day!!  I will not share how any of this is done you will have to just take a look at the photos!! Mia, Darryl,  their families and the wedding party went up the day before and got the venue all ready for the big day.  And seeing it all come together was amazing!

 

Okay so being in the wedding party of this one I will say when Mia first took us to the venue to see it I was in love right away with it, it couldn’t be more perfect.¬† Then she decided to talk about bunting and all the different spots she wanted it the picture that me and the other bridesmaid had in mind well let’s just say we poked fun a bit.¬† However my dearest Mia AMAZING job on the bunting as it honestly made the venue look unreal!!¬†

They picked an unreal venue that I am officially obsessed with and I am sure you all will be as well when you look at the photos.¬† They got married in Milton at Country Heritage Park.¬† The venue was super accommodating¬†and they honestly felt like old time¬†friends!!¬† It is a gorgeous Barn that actually does tractor rides around the gorgeous property (I think my nephew was on it most of the day).¬†As you take a tour of the venue there are old barns, blacksmith stores, general stores horses it is unreal!¬†¬† The ceremony was upstairs in the loft area Jer (Mia’s brother) made an arch way for them and it fit in perfectly…just looked amazing!!¬† Below on the main floor was where dinner and the big party happened afterwards!¬† Mia is extremely creative and incorporated all the things that they loved into the look of the wedding coke bottles being one of them :).¬†

So I’m pretty sure you can guess I did the make up for her wedding.¬† So we woke up in the morning put our amazing robes on that Mia had bought us and I went to work!!¬† Airbrushing of course was used and then everyone had a different look.¬†

The photographers were amazing and fit right in with everyone perfectly!¬† Young Hearts Photography is who took all the photos of Mia and Darryl’s day and they did an unreal job!!

Congrats to Mia who is not only my cousin but has become one of my closet friends I am so happy for you and Dare!   To Dare Welcome to our family offically yet again!  Love ya both!!

So usually I just show a few photos of my make up but because this was a DIY and because of my obsession with the venue there will be a few photos of everything all mixed into the slide show below.
