Did you know that the wedding guest book tradition was actually used as a legal document?? I didn’t! It was used for witnesses to sign to affirm the wedding actually happened! 👰‍♀️💍🤵‍♂️

There are so many guestbooks to choose from now and many question if one is even needed! When we were planning our wedding, we wanted something to have to hang in our home and remember our special day!

Our wedding guest books are made to order and customizable! Gray and oak barnwood available!

I wanted to take a few minutes to acknowledge all the new likes I have gotten on this page! Thank you all so much for following me!
A little bit about myself - I married the love of my life in November 2019. We live in Virginia with the other love of my life, Dottie, our rescue pup. I work full-time in the realm of suicide prevention and mental health. My husband and I love to play golf and enjoy the outdoors. Most weekends you'll find him in the garage working on yet another project as he loves to build things....all. the. time. Our house is full of custom pieces of furniture - I'll have to post some pictures of that too!
I love being creative and finding new projects! If you are looking for something specific for your wedding, I would love to help!
Thank you again for 'liking' my page and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message or an email!
