In Love With A Chandy

I love, love, love our dining room chandelier, and after my recent post about our dining room updates, a few of you left comments or emailed me regarding the story on it.


When we were planning our wedding and I found our reception site, my eyes immediately latched on this gorgeous wooden staircase that connects the upstairs (where we got married) to the large room where we hosted our wedding reception.

I knew I wanted to have a beautiful cake there for us to cut under a sparkly chandelier!

When we started pricing our chandelier rental options, I quickly realized that it might not cost too much more to actually purchase a chandelier and then just pay to have it professionally hung.  I found this beauty -- which, sadly, does not seem to be available any more -- at Home Depot.  It was the Heritage 6 Light Chandelier.  It was listed for $169.00, and I found a $10 off coupon code online on one of my fave sites, Deal Hunting, and also initiated the purchase through Ebates (which currently offers 5% back on Home Depot purchases).  So yeah, I scored quite a deal!  Plus, I read every single review on it, and it was rated really highly by its owners. 


So, for the ultimate sentimental purchase, I ordered the chandelier that we would cut our wedding cake under -- and we even signed our marriage certificates under it, too -- and my father put it together for us.  After we were married, we carefully brought it to our new home and have it hanging in our dining room.  It will always move with us whereever we may go. 

It will be an important reminder in our lives of the vows we made on the most important day of our lives together.

If you love this chandelier and would want one similar, here is a smaller one and a larger one, both of which are currently out of stock, but you can stalk them until they are (hopefully) available again.  :)
