    Shani & Anthony - Woodinville, WA  

    Shani and Anthony took a real DIY approach to their wedding and almost got the whole family and her bridesmaids involved in the many DIY projects. I really like the way they managed to delegate and enlist family to take on projects which each family member would feel comfortable with.

    Glad to hear. I'm going to do it! And great photographer tip - thanks!

    Hi Charlotte,

    That's actually the reason I wanted to stand on the right side- it's my "good side" too! I don't think it was a big deal to anyone, but we don't come from religious families or anything. Definitely be sure to tell your photographers about your face preference! It sounds like a silly request, but wish I had because they took a lot of pics of the other side and I ended up disliking most of those ones!
    Charlotte2012-06-19 19:34#10

    I really want to stand on the right side like you did! I'm self-consious that my face has a 'non-photogenic side' (totally insane, I know, lol). Did anyone comment about you standing on the "wrong side"?

    Such a beautiful wedding dress, could you possibly give me info on how to find it? Item code or dress name maybe?

    Thank you in advance :)

    Hi all! I'm the bride of this wedding & actually just saw one of my pics posted on Pinterest, so I clicked through and it took me here! I know it's a little late, but I saw the questions and wanted to answer them. The mugs were from Anthropologie- they've carried them for years and I don't think they will ever stop selling them! The bridesmaid dresses were from the J.Crew chiffon collection. Thanks for all of the sweet comments, I love reading them!! S

    This is the most beautiful and inspiring wedding I have seen. I love everything about it and what's better is that it's unique. I love penguins, I envy the cake topper.

    Quoting Karaf:
    I would love to know where you found those teacup that spell out L-O-V-E! ! So cute! Beautiful wedding!

    Hi Karaf, I just love those mugs too!!!!! They are so amazingly gorgeous. If you go to "Our Favorite Finds" page here on under "Wedding Stores" you will find all the information you need. There are a few different styles available; Mugs and Teacups...I love them both so much - it's hard to choose;o))
