lovely jordana.

happy october everyone! as promised, I'm finally getting some of the awesome weddings up on the blog that my sweet readers have sent in.  first up, jordana's napa valley affair.  isn't she beautiful??? 
ps- I'm obsessed with her dress!!

 a bride after my own heart, she was all about the diy details. so here's a little from jordana herself: 

We were married on October 1st, 2011, in Napa Valley, CA at the Historic Napa Valley Country Club. Though the location had everything we needed, I insisted on a DIY wedding...staying up into the wee hours the week before the big day, finishing the guest's name cards by hand, finalizing my vows and creating photo booth signs.

With my handmade Oatmeal Lace clutches, giving bridesmaid's gifts was really easy (and unique). My dad made each girl her own one-of-a-kind pair of earrings to wear with their yellow dresses, and I bought a gray lace or white polka dot scarf for each girl. I wrapped the earring boxes in yellow and white polka dot paper (from Paper Source) and placed all the contents neatly into the bags. Presenting the gifts at our rehearsal dinner inside the clutches brought everything come together - and made each girl feel so special.

a dad who handmakes jewelry? LOVE!

 thank you so much for sharing some of your wedding day with me, jordana. hope married life is treating you wonderfully and happy first anniversary! :)

  2. Jojo and Duter's wedding was so beautiful and so is their love. My sister and BIL are such creative and thoughtful people which was easily showcased by the details of their wedding. I loved reading this blog, and what a special way to celebrate your first year of marriage! Happy Annie! ♥Stephanie
