What’s a wedding without refreshments? Well, I guess it’s still a wedding, but the point is everybody loves a good wedding bar. It took us a while to figure out exactly how we wanted to handle drinks at the wedding, and we’re pretty happy with how it all turned out.
Let’s just get right to it! Here are the photos of the ceremony and all our wedding decor. Above is the “altar” made from a giant metal trellis and a vintage dresser scarf, on which I embroidered the word ‘happily’. Because that’s how we married–happily.
Since I don’t have a lot of extra time this week, I thought I’d put together a simple post of random images/things that I’ve been enjoying lately. Hope you it enjoy too! (Most images found via Pinterest. Click through to credits.)
If I pass this accounting test, I will buy myself this book and learn how to quilt. For my non-existent log cabin. If I don’t pass this test, I will have to take an accounting course over the summer. Boo. Back to studying!
We’re having our fifth and final giveaway, folks, and this one’s very special. As many of our faithful readers already know, Brian and I are engaged and we’ve entered the Crate & Barrel Ultimate Wedding Contest. If you’ve already heard about this 10 times, don’t stop reading! For those of you who are new to the Westervin blog, lemme esplain! In order to get to the next round in the contest, we need to be amongst the top 50 vote-getters. We’re barely hanging on — somewhere around 200th place — but we’re not giving up hope. Should we win, our wedding will be unique and sassy, like us! We plan to purchase goods and services that are eco-friendly and that support small, local businesses and independent craftspeople. Craftspeople like the shockingly sweet Lorena of Marañón. I plan on wearing one of her refreshingly cool embroidered necklaces on the big day. To help us win, Lorena has kindly donated one of her necklaces for a giveaway. This giveaway! We ask that you vote for us in the contest, and in return, you will be entered to win the hand-embroidered and -sewn Peacock Fan Necklace above. If you’ve already voted for us, you’re half way there!
