Wedding Prep stop-motion

On November 10th, the day before my someone and I tied the knot, we were setting up his parent's house for the event. We set up my camera on a tripod at the corner of the room and everyone took their turn in clicking the shutter. The result was over 4000 frames of us setting up the place, and so I had only one thing to do with it all- a stop-motion video.
Enjoy :)

DIY Cake Toppers

A couple of months ago when my someone and I decided to split our wedding in to two separate events, I was completely over the moon with joy, when I realized I will get do design our entire Chuppah event, as it will take place at his parents house. I had a million ideas in my head, and so many inspirations from all my favorite wedding blogs. My someone was as equally thrilled as he loves DIY projects. And so together we chose the color scheme, thought about how we'd set the tables, shopped for accessories, and figured out the decor. 
We found an amazing Caterer who has also taken an active role in helping us design everything just the way we've envisioned it.
Though it's not traditional in Jewish weddings, I really wanted a wedding cake. I found a great baker who will create a wedding cake that is combined of both cupcakes and a one tier cake. But what's a wedding cake without the toppers? 
So, I shopped around and found some wooden figurines- a blank canvas. I first sketched my design on them with pencil and then with some acrylic paint, and a few accessories, I created my mini someone and mini me :)
