Handmade Amor: Our Chapel and Rings

One of the biggest projects of our handmade wedding was our chapel. Mr. Poodle's dad took over the project as soon as I mention how cool it could be. I showed him all of the inspiration pictures I gather and he went beyond what I could have ever dream. Here you can see a few shoots before our ceremony, I do have to say it looked so much better with people in it =]



Mr. Poodle's dad used some old windows and another member of the family gave us their old siding (they remodel their house's outside in perfect timing)



Family friends gather almost every weekend to help out with the chapel, collecting rocks, setting windows, you name it, they were there.  I don't think I could ever thank enough for all of their help!







I also wanted to show you all both our wedding rings, we love them so much specially because of the story behind the use of the wood =]




Now that I've show you all of our details, we are ready to star with the ceremony!

Handmade Amor: Bride and Groom (Part 2)

In the first part I showed you all some of my favorite pictures before our ceremony, here is the second part with my favorites around the old house, burnt machinery field and the dirt road =] We had to have some pictures in the tree rope swing, Mr. Poodle has played on it ever since he can remember so it was really cool to have pictures with it.


Mimi is Mr. Poodle's grandma and one of the signature items at the ranch was a big old tree with all of those signs, but a few months before the wedding it fell so Mr. Poodle's family re-locate the whole thing and added our names on the bottom so all of us always remember that we got married there =]


One of my favorite projects for our wedding were my huge letters made out of cardboard, so of course we had to take pictures with them =]





And after all the pictures around the barn, we walked to the yard of burn machinery they have in the far back to get some more pictures!








I loved how in all these you can see the purple layers of the bottom of my dress!



And of course we had to have some goofy shoots, just for the fun of it, we just cant help it!



I love all the different areas we had the chance to play around for our pictures, our photographers were so awesome for wanting to experiment and walk a lot to get different backgrounds =] I loved the end result!!

Handmade Amor: Bride and Groom (Part 1)

One of the best things about having a first look before the ceremony was that we got to take lots of pictures, have a good time and relax before the ceremony.


We took advantage of the Ranch's different areas and here you will see some of the pictures we took in in the pond area, caboose and field =]












I think one of our favorites are the action shoot of the wind almost blowing me away! Well maybe not blowing me away but surely we acted like that was going to happen =]






We had so much fun with all the pictures and our photographers made us feel so comfortable while taking pictures that at times we kind of forgot we had to pose



I love all of our pictures together and the fact that we did so many different backgrounds. Now I look back and I am so happy we decided to do a first look and get most of our pictures done before the ceremony so that way after the ceremony we jumped right int the party =]

Are you ready for some Handmade Amor recaps?

Hola hive! Long time no talk. huh? Last time we talked I shared that we were going on a very long vacation to Chile.


We stayed with my family for 3 months and went on a road trip to the north of Chile all the way to Peru. We enjoyed 3 full months of summer (The perfect scape for the California winter) It was like a second honeymoon, SO awesome!



Now that we are finally settle back home and I finish my winter job, the recaps are going to be continued and sadly finalize (it's kind of sad to think I'll have to say goodbye)


And just to catch you all up, these are somethings you need to know about us. I moved to CA from Chile just a few months before our wedding, Mr. Poodle and I met while I was hitchhiking. We struggle with a very bumpy K1 Visa process while I started blogging to improve my English. We plan most of our wedding long distance and pull off a massive amount of DIY projects for our wedding day: I made my dress, my BMs dresses, baked all our desserts and so much more! We had a lot of wood projects and it literally took a village to build our wedding celebration. Including our own outdoor chapel.


We got legally married at a very private beach ceremony with mostly Mr. poodles family, even with that wedding I had a chance to craft a little and refurbish my beach dress.


These are the recaps I did before our vacations:
Handmade Amor: The ladies!
Handmade Amor: Mr. P & the Groomsmen
Handmade Amor: First look
Handmade Amor: Getting ready - The guys!
Handmade Amor: Getting ready - I am a BRIDE!
Handmade Amor: Getting ready - The details


I am so excited to be back to finish our handmade Amor recaps! So if you guys remember me, I've miss you all so much! And if this is the first time you've read about me - Hola so happy to met you all!! I hope you guys enjoy my recaps and feel free to search on my archives here.

So good to be back!

XOXO

Mrs. Poodle =]
