Wedding Gallery Wall

To me, photos were one of the most important things about my wedding. When I got engaged I searched high and low for the perfect photographer before deciding on any other vendor, even my venue. I think it's because of my love of home decor (and making photo books), but I knew when the wedding was all said and done that I wanted obsession-worthy photos that I could drool over and decorate my house with for years to come!

After the wedding I was anxious to decorate my home with mementos from our wedding day, so while I was waiting for my photos to come back from the photographer I started my gallery wall by having my wedding invitation suite framed. I love this piece because it is a reminder of a few key design choices I included in my wedding; our wedding color (the light blue that is on the monogrammed belly band and envelope liner), and the calligraphy (that we included on all of our signage, programs and menus on our wedding day).

Once we got our photos back I chose to have a more "artsy" photo professionally framed, so that it would have staying power as a piece I know we will want to display in our house forever. The "artsy" photo I chose is a photo of Cam and I standing in a shadowy doorway. I love it because it shows off the fluffyness of the skirt of my wedding dress, a feature that I had my heart set on and conducted an exhaustive search to find! (Seriously, I must have tried on a hundred dresses before finally finding "the one!")

I chose to include two smaller pieces to finish out the gallery wall (they are affordable "instagram mini's" from Framebridge). One is a photo I took in Paris on our honeymoon, and one is a photo that features every person in our bridal party, (it makes me feel so loved to look at this one and remember  all of the people who worked so hard to make our day so special!).

I hope you loved this little peek into how we're incorporating our wedding memories in our home decor! Stay tuned for another post on where else in our home we are displaying our wedding memories, including the dried wedding bouquet shadow box that I featured in a recent DIY!

  1. It's beautiful! I framed our wedding invitation too, and is one of my favorite things! You spend so long picking out the design, you should be able to look at it forever!
