My Wedding Photos by Photographer KT Moon, Fidamo USA

Here are some photos of my wedding that took place last fall, October 3, 2009.  I am so lucky to have such a wonderful friend who is an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING photographer, Miss KT Moon of Fidamo.  Mike and I definitely had what you would refer to as a "budget wedding" and a DIY wedding.  Hopefully photos of our day will show you that you can DIY too and maybe you will be a little inspired!

Our vintage peacock theme wedding.

DIY Wedding Arch
Thanks to my handy Dad, he cut down a tree in his woods about a week before the wedding and crafted this beautiful arch.  We dug holes into the ground and in she went.  The morning of the wedding, my friends and I weaved flowers and ivy all over it and then draped it with fabric, all together we made this arch for under $200 and it was breathtaking!
Me and my Dad:)
Ohhh THE DRESS.  I bought my dress at Demetrios but I did not want to have the same dress as somoeone else and could not afford a custom dress, so thanks to Penny (the mother of my bridesmaid Lindsey) it became one of a kind!  I found a fabric that matched the dress and Penny made several roses of different sizes by hand.  Lindsey, Penny and I had a sewing party and on the dress they went!  It could not have turned out any better!  Thanks Penny.
I found my beautiful cake topper on Etsy, oh I love that site.  Thank you Krishna for creating exactly what I wanted.
The cake was made by my Aunt, Red Velvet (mike's Favorite) with fondant icing(my favorite).  She saved us some major money on this one and created the perfect cake and it was delicious too!

DIY Wedding Favors.  I ordered the boxes from Paper-Source, BEWARE, you will become addicted to this site.  2 of my bridesmaids and I assembled the boxes and wrapped them with ribbon.  I printed the labels at home, filled the boxes with a sweet treat and WAH-LA a beautiful guest favor!
DIY Food Trays.  I bought foam core at Hobby Lobby cut it to size, wrapped it with leftover wallpaper samples and it was stunning.
DIY Wedding Invitations.  I created completely custom Wedding Invitations and my husband and I went to work; printing, cutting, rounding edges and tying ribbons:)
We were so blessed with an AMAZING sunset at our wedding, it could not have been more perfect.
DIY Wedding Programs.  I created custom programs for our wedding, the envelopes were again from Paper-Source and we embossed a gold label with our last initial and sealed it with a peacock feather.  Repeating our Peacock wedding theme.

All of the girls wore head peices with peacocks in them, some of us made them ourselves, while others bought them.  Sarah handcrafted this one herself!
My hair, courtesy of Tiffany at A-do.  I DARE you to find a bobby pin in this work of art.
DIY Escort Cards and Peacock Guest Book Pen.  Both FOR SALE at my etsy store!
We did not do the traditional, see eachother for the first time at the ceremony thing, so this was our way and it turned out perfect.  Thank you KT, another wonderful idea from our photographer!
