Endless Wedding Prep, Endless Honeymoon…

marriedpost-copySo I got married (Facebook photo and post courtesy of my wonderful new Husband, Wade Hasbrouck – xoxo). Yep. A big day. It went perfectly (everyone said yes, and I do!) and we all had fun – thank you to all of our friends and family, love you all – xoxo. Extra special thanks to all of the friends and family that pitched in to help put together the flowers, favors and big set up day of – we couldn’t have done it without you.

I did not photograph my own wedding – the fabulous Meredith McKee of Meredith McKee Photography did…see the day on her blog! Meredith captured all of our moments, almost rainy day and all. We cannot thank her enough.

However, I did snap lots of the details along the way leading up to the big event. We did so many fun DIY details ourselves that I dubbed #endlessweddingprepWE in the days and weeks leading up to the main event. I captured everything with my handy iphone and shared it via instagram. Our goal was to make everything very personal – from the airplane themes to the photo features.

As many DIY as there were, one of our favorite personal theme items was actually from our cake vendor Mike’s Amazing Cakes – who was able to perfectly create this super awesome cake and topper(which is a sculpture we get to keep!)…

Special thanks to #mikesamazingcakes for our delish cake and awesome topper! #WadeAndElisa @mikemccarey

Wade, my new Hubby, was the master folder of airplane styled programs(and 80+ favor boxes scroll down a few pix)…they were on point!

Speaking of favors, a little making of shot. Note the sectional chart boxes that the hubs had folded – aka airplane maps :)

Our theme and decor included lots of aviation items, but also included lots of reference to our combined passion of photography, ranging from decopage letters of our personal and coupled evolution…
