I’m really excited to share today’s wedding. When I talked to Lindsey, she said that she picked her dress (only a week after the proposal) and it inspired the whole look and feel of her wedding; vintage, and romantic. They decided to keep things casual with an intimate backyard garden affair, with tons of DIY projects, and lots of little details. Thanks so much to Lindsey and Trebor for sharing all the details of their day, and to Heather Brulez Photography for the lovely images.

From the Bride…
My husband and I started dating when we were in high school. He is two years older than me and his last year of high school he decided to do track, and we started to talk during the track meets. I looked forward to talking to him more than doing my events. We had a great summer then he went to K-State. We did the long distance thing for two years while I finished high school. Then I also attended K-State, and finally we were in the same town, and it was great. We went on a trip to Zion National Park with some of my family. On our last night in the park he wanted to go walk to the river, and I was really confused why no one wanted to go with us. It started raining, thunder and lightning, and he got down on one knee. He probably said all the romantic things a girl wants to hear but all I remember is that he was proposing. I started crying and saying yes. It was perfect.
Because I wanted our day to be personal, we paid a lot of attention to details. My mom was so much help, she made the flower girl dresses and the head bands for all the girls and women in the wedding. We also made all the table runners. One of our biggest projects was the tulle covered balls that hung down the aisle on the chairs. In my blog obsession I had found the saying Eat, Drink, and Be Married, so I painted it with a design to place on the buffet table. I also had seen fans as a really fun way to keep guests informed and cool (well cooler), so I painted a design with our names and the date on it. We had them printed with the names of our family and the wedding party on the back of the fans.
My favorite part of the wedding was walking up the aisle toward my husband. That was the only time I almost cried, I was so happy to be marrying him. Although I did love seeing everything come together. We had planned this for almost 10 months. For me I was so happy it was everything I wanted. The dance and the food was amazing. By the end of the night people where in the pool. Even my dad, in his wedding clothes!
