So like i said before  Jesse and I got married last November. It was by far the greatest day of my life. 

Jesse and i met here in hawaii. It was love at first sight. He was in a play that my friend Cody dragged me to. I took one look at him and knew he was the one for me.  After Cody going on and on about how we would be perfect for each other  my crush was solidified.  we had a rough start that year and i would say are real relationship didn't actually start for another year  but there was no doubting how i felt about him. I haven never met someone so perfect for me. 

Jesse asked me to marry him last May. I never cried so much in my life!!! I was so happy.  We decided to set the date and get to work. 

We paid for everything our selves and we quickly realized that we weren't going to be able to afford what we wanted, a big crazy beautiful fun wedding in hawaii! Well me, Jesse, and my friends are pretty crafty and resourceful. We figured out what were the really important things to us and figured out how to make it happen. I have never had so many craft projects. None of it would have been possible with out our amazing friends who worked their butts off. But we made it happen and it was really cheap for a wedding.

My dress was only 100.00 bucks and made to fit from
I thought it was scam but figured i'd waste the 100 bucks to find out. instead i got an amazing dress at like 1/5 the cost of a regular dress. totally worth it.

I have commented on the youtube video of the entrance and the dancing... I LOVE THIS WEDDING! I have been planning a Carnival themed wedding as well. Ours will be 11-11-11. I would love to be able to either purchase some of the props and other items that you have created or get the info on how to make them myself and where you purchased your supplies. We are also paying for this whole thing ourselves. We have picked an awesome YMCA summer camp for the location. Its absolutely beautiful. Not nearly as spectacular as Hawaii but we really are on a tight budget. 3,000 for the whole thing. Sooooo, anyways, send me a message via email and let me know if you would be willing to sale anything or would be willing to help me out with some of the how to's and where to get things. THNX!

Your wedding was beautiful, and it is so inspiring to see such a gorgeous wedding all hand crafted. The amount of love and hard work that went into that wedding shows, I hope it was everything you hoped it to be, and that you and your husband and your child are so happy together, because you all are so cute!

I love this wedding. Me and my fiancé are planning our wedding for next summer, were doing a Tim Burton-y theme. Sort of like Alice in wonderland meets Edward Scissor hands, but my love wants to have a bouncy house (moonwalk) and a cotton candy machine so it will have a bit of a carnival theme too. You two look so in love, and I'm so glad to see another happy, quirky, tattooed couple pull together an awesome DIY wedding like this for me to be inspired by! We dont have a ton of $$ to spend either, but I think it all comes together in the small handmade details, and yes, thank goodness for talented and helpful friends! Best wishes to you, and check out my blog sometime!

AMAZING! I love the amount of colour used, the carnival theme and the DIY nature of your wedding. My partner and I have used the carnival theme in our 'Save the Date' invites as it's something we love and will probably incorporate into our wedding day :).

Where did your bridesmaids get their dresses? I love the mustard color and fit.
