Jeremy's friend Andy caught the garter. It was really adorable! 

I'll be sharing a fun and easy DIY about how I made my own garter soon. XO, elsie

  • ha! It wasn’t until this moment that I realized that we didn’t do a bouquet or garter toss at our wedding!!

    Got lost in the moment I guess.

  • Oh, cute. I just love your wedding dress. But I was right in thinking that you were wearing a red belt ??? Or maybe I have just gone crazy …

  • Ah, so fun! I cannot wait for that DIY!!! You two had such an adorable wedding. 😀

  • Ooh, can’t wait for the garter DIY…my husband’s lil sis is getting married in September and we haven’t been able to find what she wants…maybe I can make it!! (and then I’ll get the “Best Matron of Honor Ever” award for suresies!)

  • Dear Helen,

    Congratulations on your wedding; it looks like it was a beauuutiful day!:)

    I’ve been a fan of your blog from the moment i stumbled across it hehe.

    It would mean the WORLD to me if you had a quick look at my blog and gave me some suggestions as i am only just starting out and honestly have no idea what I’m doing! :O

    Lots of love,

    Sheridan 🙂 xx

  • Hi – these pictures are sooooo cute!! LOVE IT!

    I hope you don’t mind but I’ve blogged about it and used some of the pictures.

    Have a great married life xx

  • You could not have chosen a more perfect wedding dress! Every successive picture I see of you in it, I think, “That dress is absolutely perfect on her!” Seriously, I think it EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. You look exquisite.

  • That looks like so much fun. I really love your weeding photographs!


  • I am a new follower and I absolutely love your wedding photos! Congratulations!!

  • GOOD because I also want to make my own garter and if yours looks like what I think it does, I’ll be using this for my wedding. I’m freshly engaged as of last night! w00t!

  • I caught the garter on my best friend’s wedding. It was probably one of the most embarrassing experience of my life, haha. Congratulations, you look so cute! And good luck to the next bride!
