Saw It, Pinned It, Did It- #8

I am extremely excited to share my Pinterest project for this week's Saw It, Pinned It, Did It with the fabulous hostesses Katie & Stephanie!

It is yet another wedding project...imagine that ;) Now that almost all of our Save the Dates have been sent out, I can finally share them on my blog.
 
So here's a little background. My fiance has loved to fish ever since he was very young. When I first met him, he told me that when he grew up, his dream job would be raising fish at a trout hatchery....and that's exactly what he's doing.

A few years ago, my best friend and MOH received a Save the Date from a friend that said "We're hooked" on it and had some sort of picture on the front. She made sure to show it to me because it reminded her of something Aaron and I would do. Fast forward to about a year ago, way before I was engaged....she sends me a Facebook message of this picture because she thought it was really cute and looked like us.

So here was my Pinspiration:

I knew when we got engaged that I wanted to incorporate something that represented Aaron and his love for fishing and hunting into some aspect of the wedding. My other option was to do something that said "he took a shot and she said yes", or "now the hunt is over", but I thought that might have been a little too much. I definitely liked the fishing idea better...especially since Aaron's career is centered around fish.

So without further ado, here is my version:

The back of the postcard...edited for safety reasons

I thought the "Two less fish in the sea" was fitting because back when Aaron and I celebrated our first anniversary together, I made him a cake that said "Of all the fish in the sea, I'm so glad you chose me".
Here is the cake. Don't laugh, it's not my best creation ever.
 
A big thanks to YellowBrick Graphics on Etsy for making my idea come to life. They did an awesome job and it turned out exactly how I envisioned. Plus, you can't beat the $15 price tag. I then took the PDF file to Office Depot and had them printed there for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend them if you need invitations or stationary.
 
Can't wait to see all the creations from the link-up.
What would we do without Pinterest?
