Your first names: Cynthia & Christopher
Wedding date: May 9, 2009
Wedding location: Peppermill Hotel Spa & Resort in Reno Nevada US
What made your wedding creative: Going with a specific theme such as an Old Hollywood Glam look, from the attire to decor, music and more. No one in any of our family weddings ever had a theme.
What projects you DIY’ed: My DIY projects consisted of; my bouquet, all the boutonnieres, corsages, pomanders, center pieces, invitations (all included, rsvps, envelopes etc), programs, veil, ring bearer pillow, favors, memorial poems/decor
What obstacles did you face in planning a DIY wedding? How did you overcome them?: The only real obstacle was the volume of crepe paper flowers that I needed for everything through out the wedding but that was graciously over comed by the support and help I received from my parents and sister. I showed them how to make the flowers then they took supplies home with them and helped me out ALOT!
Any other details that made your wedding special: The fact that some people actually got in to the dress up mode of the 1940s Old Hollywood Glam look for the wedding and the thing that ment the most to me was having my grandparents there with me…that was my biggest wish and I am so blessed and thankful to have had them there with me. They are the couple I admire the MOST in my life….TRUE LOVE!
