My DIY Wedding, Part 3

Today's Blog Positivity Week word is Creativity.

Other blogs inspire this non-crafty lady to try being crafty.  (You can read the story behind my blog name HERE.)  And my blog is my space to share those adventures -- even the crafty adventures that are an epic fail don't turn out the way I planned.

I'll bet you thought I completely forgot about the rest of my DIY wedding posts, didn't you?  Well, I didn't!  But life happened, and then I never felt like I had enough time to compose a worthy post.  But alas, here I am.  I'm back with more about my DIY wedding!

And before I forget to mention it, 
you have until 11:59pm CST today to enter my giveaway!
(I wish I could enter it, because I want one of those bags!)

Okay, enough about that.  More about my wedding!
Need to play catch-up?  See:

Gourmet Cupcakes

My cousins make gourmet cupcakes that are to-die-for!  And look at that presentation!  They really pulled out all the stops for our cupcakes, and they were a hit (as always).  My personal favorite is their red velvet.  I can never eat one.  Never! Thank you, Sam & Sara!

Another cousin of mine is a floral designer!  We spent one hour at Wholesale Flowers picking out flowers.  I had only two requests: I wanted a lot of baby's breath, and I wanted it to look very natural -- like a ran through a field with open arms and scooped up the flowers.   Mission accomplished!  She worked wonders!  Thank you, Yvonne!

Mr. TBS worked in entertainment, and he treated our music like any other directorial endeavor.  He created playlists according to each phase of the day: "pre-show" (as we called it out of habit of working in theme park entertainment), ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner.  Just like a show, the music had to set the mood.  Every song was hand-picked and placed in a certain order.  He burned them onto CDs, gave them to our friend and DJ, Dave, and we were covered.  We left the dance floor to Dave!

I met Dave of Hit It Music Productions when we worked on a show together at SeaWorld in 2006.  He is fun to work with and an awesome DJ.  He quickly became a favorite of the company and continues to DJ everyone's wedding, and mine was no exception!  I cannot sing his praises enough.  San Diegans, this is your guy!

Decor Shout-Out: Photo Line

The photos displayed on the reception tables were of Mr. TBS and I growing up -- life before falling in love with each other.  Then, we displayed photos of us over our 4.5-year relationship on a twine-and-clothes-pin photo line!

It's so fun reliving my wedding.  Thanks for joining my trip down memory lane!  
It's almost our first anniversary!

And before I am inundated with questions about it, I'll just ask the question for you:

Q: "When are you going to have a baby?"
A: "I don't know.  Do you?"

Q: "So... when are you going to have a baby?"
 A: "Sometime in the next ten years."  ;-)

Peer Pressure: "Oh, my gosh.   Your kids are going to be so beautiful!"
Response: "How kind of you to say that! (pause) That's not going to make the baby come sooner."

I'm the same way with baby questions... FIVE years later! I still don't feel ready in the slightest. You had the cutest wedding girl... I love how you designed your flowers wanting them to look handpicked from a field. Have I mentioned how beautiful you are? Well, you are :)

Love the cupcakes!! :-) And your bouquet was breathtaking, I love the colors! And yes, I was getting baby questions right off the bat, I guess people just assume marriage first, babies next! :-)

Dude! We totally had a photo line at our wedding too. Just one more thing to add to our BBFF list :)

Jess said...

WHAT! No babies soon?! ;)

where to start?
Those cupcakes are stunning - the little "K" on top...SO awesome! I need a red velvet one, please :)

I am obsessing over that twine picture line...that is such a simple idea but it looks SO perfect and adds a perfect "you guys" touch! I love the twinkle lights behind it, too :)

AND last thing - you look gorgeous in the picture with the DJ - I love your smile, Linds!

Happy Thursday!

Oh my gosh, I love your flowers! So simple, yet so incredibly beautiful. I love that you decided you wanted wildflowers like that. Gorgeous!

And I so know what you mean about the baby questions...why can't people just mind their own business!?
