Our Wedding 'Guestbook'
For our wedding Brian and I decided to have three records serve as our guestbook.  My mom and I bought three records that were really cruddy from Goodwill, three record frames, foam core, and some sticker paper (it was really thick and gray under the white) from Hobby Lobby.  We printed the illustrations I did for the invites onto the sticker paper.  We then cut the labels out, slightly larger than the original label, and stuck them on.  We then used hot glue to mount the records to foam core we cut to fit inside the frame.

At the reception we had the mounted records laying on a table with gold Sharpies so everyone could sign.  The Sharpie bleeds just a bit in the ridges, but I like the blur.  Brian's little sister signed all three of the records!  After we came back from our honeymoon we popped them into their frames and hung them.  We chose a wall you can see as soon as you step into our apartment.  I love that they will look good in any space we live in, and we're always going to be music fans!  ♥ Mallory

New Job - Fabulous Bridal
I mentioned the other day that I started a new job.  Let me explain: I'm now a sales consultant at Donna Salyers Fabulous Bridal in Covington, Kentucky.  I'm so excited about it and fell in love my first week.  If you're in the general area (Cincinnati or Northern KY) and are a bride, bridesmaid, flower girl, or mother of the bride or groom in need of a dress call to make an appointment with me!  I'll be taking on appointments in 2-3 weeks!  Above are some of my favorites from our stock (Anne Barge, Alfred Sung, Us Angels, the Martina Liana).  We also carry my bridesmaid dresses!  ♥ Mallory
Wedding: Reception

Last of the wedding photos (post 1 & post 2)!  We had our reception at Longworth Hall, an amazing historical building.  We hung buntings, giant hearts, and big panels with my illustrations of Wall-e & Eve and Brian & I.  Our guestbook was 3 old records signed with gold Sharpies.  My dad and Brian built wood boxes for the centerpieces that were filled with flowers from Posy & gold glitter hearts.  Our seating cards were flags in vintage thread spools.  We also made goodie bags for kids under 10 including homemade Pixar coloring books.

We had heart shaped donuts and mimosas for cocktail hour.  For dinner, guests chose scrambled eggs, quiche, or eggs benedict & all the fixins. Our cake by Marilyn's Cakes looked just like my sketch (plus cheesecake)!  Dad &I danced to Father & Daughter by Paul Simon.  Brian & Teresa danced to Child of Mine by Carole King.  We had our first dance together to La Vie en Rose by Louis Armstrong (from Wall-e, duh).  The three toasts were all so sweet.  Then we boogied all night long with our friends and family.  My cousin Samantha caught the bouquet.  We also found a few minutes to sneak away with Sarah to take a few photos just us in a long pretty hall.
