What To Do With My Wedding Pictures?

Our wedding pictures were on the mail waiting for us to get back from our honeymoon (that's how fast my photographer worked!). I rushed home from the post office and opened the big envelope, there were over 200 edited proofs and a CD with more than 1200 shots, all taken in about 7 hours (I think). I rushed to the store to find a small album where all 200 hundred pictures would fit. I wasn't very lucky and ended up buying a plain black leather one. 

Next up I chose a few pictures to enlarge and frame, I made 3 small plain canvas and hung them in our bedroom. I still needed to frame "OUR wedding picture" and as always I looked at Etsy.com. I had saved GeeZees a long time ago in hopes that she would be able to create a beautiful canvas for our wedding after I received my wedding pictures.

After sending her a "groupie" style tweet we were able to begin working on my wedding canvas. I chose my canvas size and within 10 days I had my canvas proof, what do you think?


I chose that scripture for our wedding ceremony, I think it describes our love perfectly (he did have to wait 8 months for a date!). The proofs were so pretty I only changed one thing, the word "Love" at the top of this one.

We left for Tulum, Mexico for a few days,  once we returned this beauty was waiting on our front door. I was so excited to finally see it!

(Please excuse the appearance of the colors, it was a cloudy day)


We are finishing up the painting on our living room, in the meantime this 24"x36" beauty sits above our mantel. I'm still looking for a permanent home for it, I'm not sure if it should be over the mantel or not. What do you think?

Here is a side view that shows how thick the frame is.

 
We all know marriage can be challenging at times (let's keep it real!) but a daily visual reminder keeps us going, for me the last verse is powerful, "Never looks back but keeps going to the end".  I can't think of a better way to remind ourselves everyday why we chose each other.

If you need a last minute Mother's Day gift please make sure to check out GeeZees Etsy store, she can turn any picture into a beautiful work of art with your words. She's also on Facebook, please stop by and say Hi!

(*Disclaimer: I received a discount from GeeZees as a result of this post but I would have GLADLY paid full price for my canvas, it's that good!)
