Check out this his and hers wood wedding ring box. These wooden ring boxes are awesome! They’re handcrafted by Will from End Grain Wood Shoppe. Will says, “This pair of wedding ring bearer pillow boxes would be a perfect addition to a woodland wedding. Each wood ring box has been cut from a branch of Sierra Nevada reclaimed wood. The wood boxes have been oiled to enhance their natural beauty. Then His and Hers have been wood branded into the top of the wedding ring boxes.” What do you think about this photo of the day?

The bride Sarah tells us, “When planning our wedding we tried starting with a blank slate, no expectations, no theme, just went with what we liked as we went along. We both had a love for traveling, and had met backpacking overseas, so we wanted our wedding to tell our story. Not everything may have coordinated, or had a generalized theme, but it was accurately ours. A crazy, amazing and special adventure.”

Bri tells us, “They set up a really fun photo booth with a neat back drop. It stands out to me because I am used to seeing photo booths with plain backdrops. I also loved the ceremony backdrop. It was shredded fabric, and very unique. They painted and sprayed coke and wine bottles for their table decor. They also had pictures of themselves strung up on a wall. It was so cute and really gave me insight into their cute love story.”
