My wedding preview

Tuesday, March 17, 2015
It's here! It's here! Our wedding week is here!
I haven't posted much about it other than our engagement photos and the call out to make blocks for our wedding quilt, so I thought now might be a good time to give you a sneak peak at our celebration this Sunday, March 22.
Here are a few of the items I've been working on with Law, friends and family to prepare for the big event:
Our wedding quilt before it was quilted:



Putting the binding on the wedding quilt:

Sending the invitations out:

Fabric garlands to decorate our house for brunch the day after the wedding:

Ironing boards that quilters bought for us off of our registry. One for work, one for life!:

A preview of our candy bar:




Out of town gift bags:

Favors all ready to go:

Custom cocktail napkins with our wedding hashtag, #LawLovesJulie:

We're very excited that the big day is near! We're looking forward to celebrating with family and friends.
We'll have post-event photos on the blog for you as soon as I can get to editing them!

I have started to hear more and more about people whose professional pictures have been ruined by the flashes from guest cameras or from people standing up or lifting their cameras in the way of the photographer.
