Have the wedding you want and don’t compare yourself to magazines, other couples or Pinterest. Be realistic with your budget and focus on planning a day that you will just have lots of fun at.

One way we personalized the ceremony was that the church pews had thistle tied with the tartan of Dinah‘s family (MacArthur).

The entire day was memorable for different reasons. The vows were a very special moment as were some of the speeches at our wedding. Our nephews and nieces also created a video for us to watch which brought us to tears laughing.

We chose our venue because of its proximity to family and because the style matched our Gatsby theme.

All the table numbers were DIY, Dinah found a bunch of antique gold frames at a flea market. Toby’s mom helped us use a letter cutter to print out table numbers in an art deco looking print.
