When the couples' original plans couldn't happen, they figured, why not get married in Paris since we are honeymooning there anyway? Well, an American can't actually do that legally, unless you have been living in Paris for 40 days. You have to technically be married in the US first and then you can have a ceremony in Paris. Your marriage license has to be filled out, filed and legal before you get there. So, that's what they did. Now mind you, I originally had planned a pre-wedding party at my house for this event, not a wedding. So being the flexible person I am (NOT!!), we went with it!
The bride's father is a minister, so that made it very easy to have a little wedding with immediate family at our house right before for the party. I think every girl deserves (almost) everything she wishes for in a wedding, so I tried to fill her top desires. And I think I earned quite a few "brownie points" with this whole thing! ;-)
I used Teresa Collins Tell Your Story paper line. I fussy cut this cute little frame from the papers and added silver Stickles in several areas.
I rarely, if ever, cut the photos from the background like I did in the photo below. I usually don't like the look. But there were so many distracting things in the photos that it does look much better this way and I'm glad I did it. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
One more layout down. How many more to go?? Don't think about it...just do it! ;-)
