Today is my wedding day!!!!!! I could not be an happier.
(I am not actually writing this on the day, this is a scheduled post. So no, I am not blogging on my wedding day πŸ™‚ )David and I decided no emails, no texting, no instagram, no twitter, no blogging, no facebook, etc on our honeymoon! So if I do not answer your email, or anything else, just know it is because I am on my honeymoon in the Bahamas making new memories with my sweet husband.

These are not pictures of the actual wedding, we took these a week ago as our formal session with our photographer. I wore a veil for half the session and a flower crown for the others, which I am showing you today!

The other half of the formal session will come later, and the actual wedding pictures will also come later along with honeymoon pictures πŸ™‚ so check back in 5 days or so for the rest!

I had a very specific vision of how I wanted these pictures. I wanted it to look like an old, classic wedding and I had all of these images in my head of David and I driving away in an old car with flowers and cans.. that idea kept running through my brain and I HAD to recreate the images I was imagining! And Ciara did just that. I borrowed this car from my cousin Craig, (thanks Craig), made that flower garland (although I wish I would have made it bigger, the care makes it look so teeny tiny!) and then the cans.

  1. I love this dress! I see it everywhere! I was wondering if you could email me some information on it? That would be wonderful.

  2. Gorgeous photos Amber! You and your family are absolutely beautiful.

    My best friends boyfriend is asking me for wedding ring advice (he wants to propose)! My best friend is in love with your ring, I was wondering who the designer is?

    Thank you so much!

  3. You were such a beautiful bride! I came across your blog searching for the source of your dress, your pictures are posted as a product from an online bridal shop, and I wanted to see if they really made the dress they said they did, turns out the definitely did not so thank you for posting your designer!

  4. you looked absolutely beautiful on your wedding day! Did you have any bridesmaids? My wedding is in 6 months and my dress is very similar to yours. I’m trying to get an idea of what style they should wear??? Any suggestions??

  5. Hi there. I have been seeing your dress everywhere on pintrest and other web pages and emailed a webpage as your dress was on it. The kind person got me to this link and i thought i would email you to see if you could help me with the dress design or idea as i would love my wedding dress to be like this or very similar. I have not had my eye off it for ages! If you could email me on that would be great so i could start looking for something else if this is no available. Thanks!

    Kind regards

  6. Hi Amber, I am just wondering if you are interested in selling your wedding dress! If not, where did you happen to find that amazing thing? You can shoot me an email at thank you!

  7. Amber, your wedding photos are absolutely gorgeous! I have them on my Pinterest boards as inspiration for my upcoming wedding. I love your flower crown and plan on wearing one for my wedding reception, did you use real flowers or silk? The woman who sold my wedding dress said not to use real flowers because they will wilt quickly, so I was just wondering what you used πŸ™‚

    1. Hey Jenna! Thank you so much! I did use real flowers, I personally think they photograph better! But as long as your florist makes them fresh they should last the whole day and even into the night! xx

  8. Great care must be taken not to damage the surface being cleaned due to excessive surface removal.
    Increased move fees turn to increased washing power,
    but sometimes present flooding potential risks in places that ample water flow just isn’t out there.

    Equipment can be rented or bought, or used by power wash professionals.

  9. How do I find your dress? The link doesn’t work! I’m in love with it!

  10. What nail polish color/brand did you sport on your wedding day? It’s such a nice matte pink! Thanks!!!
