Something Borrowed PDX
So I am addicted to weddings! I have been selling some of my wedding decorations on Craigslist because I want to give some bride the opportunity to have a low budget/DIY wedding like we had. One of the gals I sold some stuff to told me all about this site! If only I would have known about this:( Either way I think this is such a wonderful rescource.
Thank you! Thank you everyone who helped make our wedding day so special. Thank you for all of the lovely gifts! Thank you for those who contributed to our honeymoon:) I always hear from brides things they would change about their wedding day but we wouldn’t change anything! Well Evan and I agree we would have ate another waffle:) Why did we share?
I am so happy it poured rain! It made the wedding so intimate and so amazing with everyone under one roof! When I walked into the barn during the ceremony I felt this rush of one million emotions come over me. It was the most amazing, magical, loving, joyful feeling I have ever felt. Once I had my dad’s arm I was okay:) I can imagine having a child will be right up there but when I walked into the barn and saw everyone we love creating an aisle for me to walk down the rush of emotions took over me.
Thank you everyone for your love and support:)

We brewed 10 gallons of beer for the wedding a few weeks ago and this weekend we are going to bottle it. Here is the beer label we created. We will have this beer for the toast instead of champaign:)
