For this project I went to my local Goodwill and purchased the cheapest frame in the size and color that went with my wedding theme.
I then used my Silhouette Cameo 3 to create and cut out the design using gold Cricut vinyl. Measured the width of the glass frame to determine how large to cut out the design. Choose your favorite font and design, cut, weed, and place the design on your frame.
My father build a redwood stand to hold the frame and I had the florist add a nice floral wreath to add the finishing touches.
The one thing I absolutely loved is that it definitely set the tone for guests arriving to the wedding ceremony.
The downfall is that the glass made the wording a little challenging to see at a distance. Looking back, I wish I had either used a different color vinyl so it would’ve been easier to see at a distance or placed a plain paper in the frame so it wasn’t clear. But regardless I still love the welcome sign!
The things you can do with an iPhone and a millennial who knows how to take advantage of the iPhone features.
For the first time in what felt like ages, I decided to put some makeup on, steal my sisters bow headband since my hair was on the oily side and went outside and took some pictures. I was seriously shocked at the quality of an iPhone picture.
I never felt the need to get professional photos taken during my pregnancies so I was happy just to get a couple shots to remember these moments.
My husband and I met at UC Berkeley where our colors were navy gold. It was only fitting that we did a navy gold theme but with a little twist of blush.
Our table linens were navy and our napkin linens were dusty rose. They were a little more on the pink side than I originally wanted but these were the linens available through the venue and I didn’t want to add an additional cost by renting something less pink so dusty rose we went with!
I spray painted terra cotta pots with gold spray paint which is way cheaper than buying official vases.
A family friend did our floral arrangements (aren’t they gorgeous?!). Flowers were purchased at the San Francisco Flower Mart.
The table provided enough contrast to have a moody setting without taking away the soft romantic vibe.
