Cutting Cost…Wedding Style

As I have expressed in other posts, planning a wedding is very expensive and at times shocking!  When we were planning our wedding, I felt like every place that I called to price out doubled in price as soon as I said the words “for my wedding.”  It was so insane, but people know that…

Mixbook Fun!

I love taking pictures.  From silly ones of Thor on my iPhone to my attempt at pretending I know what I am doing with my Cannon Rebel–I love having photo memories of even the simplest moments in life.  I can still remember the anticipation when waiting to get rolls of film developed in my younger…

Thankful that this Wednesday is basically a FRIDAY!

  In sticking with my routine Wedding Wednesday posting, I’ve decided to recognize a few people that made our wedding day truly a dream come true.  Those people are our parents and grandparents.  Getting married is a lot of fun, but it is also very stressful and very costly.  Without the help of our parents…
