Wedding Wednesday

[image from mtparadis]
Yesterday I made a major strike through my to-do list, I had my bridal portrait photo shoot. It was the first time every detail was in place and I had a head to toe picture of what the big day is going to be like, and I loved it :)
I chose Fearrington Village in Pittsboro, NC for my site. It's the perfect mix of lovely gardens, rolling hills, beautiful rooms, and even a cow pasture. There could not have been better weather and my photographer recommended we start at 7pm so that she could capture the golden, early evening sun.
Besides sitting at the beauty salon for 2 1/2 hours, the whole day was worth it and I can't wait to see the results. I'm sorry I can't share more photos with you, the groom is an avid blog reader (he's sweet:) and I can't spoil the surprise for him. No worries, we only have about 3 months to go!

Inspiration Pack

I'm participating in Decor8's inspiration pack exchange. You can check out the details on Holly's site, but basically you make a small collection of remnants, send them to Holly, she mixes everything up and makes brand new packs from everyone's goodies.

Here are the completed letterpress invitations from my video tutorial. Designed by the bride herself, she will be adding yellow flowers to the green plant. Can't wait to see the end results!

Storage

Although I would love to have a huge type cabinet like the one above, I believe I would find myself using it more like Poppalina than for metal type.[Images: all from poppalina]
