What better way to honor the combining of two families, than with family photos?  This simple DIY project only involves locating your parents wedding photos or other family portraits and putting them in picture frames to make this memorable wedding decor.  I could look at these photos all day, what do you think of this idea?

Love this rustic gray and pink wedding with hot chocolate wedding favors and DIY gift tags, the beautiful table setting, unique fan cards and invitations. The play on lighting was very well done with the natural up lights, chandelier and decorative strands of outdoor lights.

Sparklers are a spectacular way for the bride and groom to exit either their ceremony or their reception.  They are a fun way to engage your guests and provide and ever lasting moment.  Just make sure that you check with your venue to make sure they are allowed.  How do you plan to make your grand exit?
