Wedding Wednesday: Our Aisle Runner

Happy Wednesday!  Today marks only two months until Eliot and I celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary on September 20th!  It's been a few months since I last posted a behind the scenes look at planning our dream Disney Wedding, so I thought today was a great time to write another installment of my Wedding Wednesday segment!

Eliot and I are super busy getting a bunch of orders finished and out in the mail before we're away this weekend for the Backstreet Boys concert and spending the weekend in Trenton.  So for today, I thought that I'd let my photos do most of the talking for me!

Since we're in the weeks leading up to our wedding anniversary, I thought it would be appropriate to showcase the thing that lead me down the aisle towards Eliot and the altar.  Our aisle runner was spectacular and it was a big part of our ceremony decor!

Disney offers aisle runners for their wedding couples, but after seeing how expensive they were for what I wanted, I decided to look elsewhere.  I discovered a company called Customized Wedding Creations (no longer operating as far as I know) that would customize the satin colors on either side of the aisle runner.  They would also add text at the top of the aisle runner (near the altar) as well as the foot of it.

I contacted Cherin late in our wedding planning process (August 3rd to be exact), but she was able to get us a quote and design proofs very quickly.  Before I knew it, we'd ordered our aisle runner and the process of creating it began!

Cherin was wonderful to work with.  Eliot and I got exactly what we wanted, and it was at a fraction of the cost that we would have paid for Disney to do it.

Before she mailed us the final product, Cherin sent us photos of our aisle runner.  I was so happy with how it turned out and I could hardly wait to see how it looked set up in the Disney Wedding Pavilion!  It was going to be absolutely perfect... 

And it was more than I could have ever dreamed.  We had gone with minimal decor for our ceremony, opting to let the space shine.  I was pretty awestruck when I saw how simple and gorgeous it all turned out!  We had the aisle runner down the center with hot pink silk rose petals lining either side of it.  Then, we had four simple Greek column pedestals holding pink and lime flowers- two at the front and two at the back.

Wasn't it perfect?  I think it was definitely worth every single penny!

It also ended up being a great photo prop for our post ceremony photos!

Plus, it's a great wedding souvenir for us to have to remember our special day!

I'm definitely 100% happy that I went with an outside company for our aisle runner.  If I had to do it all over again, I'd do the exact same thing.  Eliot and I got what exaxctly we dreamed of and it was at a great price point.  Plus, Cherin was a joy to work with!

I hope you enjoyed this installment of Wedding Wednesday and a behind the scenes look at our Disney Wedding planning process!  I still can't believe that it has already been ten years since planning and having the most perfect wedding day!  °o°
