I'm not girly, I hadn't dreamed of my wedding for years so when Josh asked me I was starting planning from the bottom. No wedding photos on my computer or dresses bookmarked online :)
All I knew was I wanted to make everything. My wise mother and mother-in-law were able to convince me to scrap a few things but in the end almost everyone knew I was to stubborn and would just do it alone so they all helped! I mostly had 3 months to plan being that I was interning in Seattle the first 3 months of our engagement.
So I since I did had many friends, family, and my naively enthusiastic and supportive fiance on my side we really did have a handmade wedding. Josh was mostly on board because it made it cheap and he'd stay up all night hand cutting our invitations because I designed them and they could be done on my printer :) And all of the things I got to do with everyone was a really fantastic way to spend time with everyone before we moved across the country.
So I wanted to share some of those moment and pieces that made our wedding feel so personal and real to Joshua and I (When people here ask about our wedding he beats me to it and says it was the best day of his life-CUTE)
But my aunt, both sets of grandparent, all 3 siblings, parents, and fiance helped in some way. Josh brought us all pizza! My grandma's even cut our wedding cakes.
