Mason Jar in a Basket Pendant Light

Andrew and I needed to figure out what we wanted to do for our kitchen pendant lights. When I made our chandelier that goes in our dining room out of mason jars we had three extra. Just so happens we had three pendant lights needed in the kitchen. Andrew really wanted to use those but I felt like they would be too plain all by themselves. I came up with this idea to use a wire baskets over the mason jars that way there would be more to them than just a jar. I totally didn't think about how there would be such a cool shadow from the wire baskets on the ceiling but it was such an added bonus!

I got my big strong husband to hang the lights for me and do all the electrical part. Of course, I was there helping and holding stuff!

Our Perfect Wedding (Reception)

The last one of the four part blog post! I cannot wait to show these details with you of our wedding. I am not going to be posting every photo of the reception with you, but I will post some so you know how much fun we had! This day seriously flew by. People tell you that'll happen but until you live it, you don't actually know how much it really does fly by. All of the hard work paid off. It was so worth it. When you are planning your wedding, remember that it is. Keep reminding yourself of how great you'll feel when you see it all together. That feeling is priceless. Especially when you get so many compliments on how it turned out. My favorite one is one of Andrew's relatives came over and told me that a month ago they went to a wedding that cost $100,000 to throw and that mine by far was way better. They said mine was so personal and detailed that they were truly amazed I did all of this. At that moment, I realized it was all worth it. Once again, these photos were taken by the wonderful Cami Takes Photos and the day of coordinator was by Kristin of  Stellar Event Management. Enjoy the photos!

This was full of keys before everybody was seated!

This is where Cocktail hour was...

I made a scrapbook of Andrew and I's relationship from when we were 3 and 6 through to our engagement photos.
