My Grandmother's Wedding Invitation

I was lucky to spend the weekend with my beautiful grandmother this weekend. She has been a huge part of my life and seems to be very excited about my upcoming wedding. While I was perusing the house I came across something amazing. Someone took my grandmother's wedding invitation and created this gorgeous drawing on top of it.

Mrs. Clyde Raymound Jordan

After seeing this it makes me want to incorporate some family wedding pictures into our wedding. I am going to start that process....SOON. I did find this gorgeous picture of my grandparents.

I am going to ask my Grandmother to write the story of how my grandparents met and their wedding story down for me. Wouldn't that be special to have!

How are you incorporating your family stories into your wedding?
