A Vivi Dot Wedding

A year a go today at this very moment, I was taking pre-ceremony photos and getting ready for the big event to begin. It's my 1 year wedding anniversary with the love of my life, Duncan. It's been an amazing first year of marriage and I can't wait to see what's next. Now for a look back on our big day.
We had everyone take Polaroids and write us a note to leave in the mailbox. It was so fun to open them after we got back from our honeymoon. The awesome portrait is by Danny Brito.
I gave Duncan this Indy look alike notebook by Melissa from Bubby & Bean quite a while ago. I loved that he used it for his vows. He stayed up late the night before rewriting them into this book. Oh how I love him!
We used a Gocco Printer to make these brown bags to hold Ranier's during cocktail/appetizer hour. We listed things that remind us of our early days of dating, way back in 2005. The place cards also doubled as wine charms so people could keep track of their drinks all night (their first name was on the charm, their last on the card, and their table number on the back).
I gave Duncan these buttons the day of the wedding so he could have Olive and Indy close to him since they couldn't join us on our big day.
We personalized our dessert table with an Indy and Olive replica by the super talented Katie of Skunkboy Creatures.
We had wood fired pizza for dinner from Veraci Pizza.
Costume change!
It has become a cousin tradition to double dutch at every wedding.
My bridesmaids and fellow dance teachers surprised the rest of the guests with a dance. You can see it in video form here.
I think this might be my favorite photo of the night. Thanks for looking back with me!!

All of these awesome photos were captured by our good friends from Love Me Sailor.

Your wedding was so lovely. Max has brought up MUTIPLE times over the last year that he was so bummed he was so sick that day that we had to go home early. And go figure, he is sick today again a year later.
We also were just talking yesterday about how we wanna hangout with you guys sometime soon! Let me know if you guys are free sometime in the coming weeks.

I was cruising ViviDot for pointers on a project I am wanting to do, and with you being the craftiest girl in the stratosphere, I knew you would have the 411.

I got totally sidetracked by these gorgeous wedding photos! You look absolutely amazing, and the photos are just stunning! Not going to lie, I am a little misty right now!

Ok, now I am going to get back my research. Just had to holla at you for a wedding well done! Congrats on 1 year!


PS Double Dutch is wicked hard.
