Journaling reads: "After the ceremony, we put our own creative spin on things. The wedding party walked down the aisle and met in the lobby. When Reverend Kate announced us “Mr. & Mrs. Spokus”, we dismissed the seated guests by ushering each row out. Since our church was downtown, there was no room for a receiving line (and with 200 guests that would be impractical). This way, we were able to say hello and personally thank each person for coming. I loved it because some guests were not able to stay for the dinner or the whole reception and we wouldn’t have gotten the opportunity to see them."

Here's the first page. I love these thickers! I think the red as an accent really pops. This is my first time using a gel pen on a layout. I'm a black or brown kinda girl, so the white really was really outside my box. But I love how turned out.
Aren't these guys handsome? I used my accent essentials cartridge for the flowers and brads I picked up at the dollar tree! Also used the treading water punch from Friskars.

Here is my "something old" page. Photos of my mom in her wedding dress and journaling the story behind it. It was my Aunt's and she borrowed it from her. Since my Aunt has all boys, she offered it to me to wear. For personal reasons, that was a no.
My "something new" is my Aunt had a little bag made with the dress for me. She also had ones made for her future daughter-in-laws since she wore it too. It was such a nice and unexpected gesture. I love how this page includes the inside of the card she wrote. The ribbon in this page is straight in real life, not sure how that happens when I take a photo of a layout.
Here is what the pages look like next to each other. I love how it turned out!
