Special touches…wedding style!

When we got married, I knew I wanted it to be slightly untraditional. We got married in a traditional Catholic ceremony, however instead of opting for a venue for our reception–we decided to make a venue out of my mother-in-law’s farm. It was a lot of work, somedays a little more stressful than others but…

Bridesmaid Dress Shopping!

On this Wedding Wednesday, I am feeling compelled to write a little about bridesmaid dress shopping, as I am currently trying to find the perfect dress for my friend Christian’s wedding!  I am so honored that she has asked me to be in her wedding party and it has been fun to be on the…

Wedding Wednesday…SURPRISE packages for the Bride-to-be!

Another thing that my bridesmaids did for me for the year before my wedding day was surprise boxes.  My sister-in-law Laura organized this fun project.  It made the stressful days so much better and I truly appreciated the thought that went into each box.  Most of the boxes had themes which made them each different…

Feel GOOD Friday…Work/Life Balance

So the truth is yesterday I just didn’t feel like blogging.  It was the first day since I started blogging, where I was just completely in a funk.  I guess that happens, and any good blogger pushes through, and posts, but I just decided to stay quiet for the day. Anyways, I stole this article…

The best thing I did while wedding planning…

Planning a wedding is a huge task. One of the most important things to remember as a bride is that it will all come together…some way or another. One piece of advice that one of my coworkers–Jonathan gave me while planning, was that even if something doesn’t go as planned–I will be the only one…

Choosing a Bridal Party…Wedding Wednesday!!

I think it is funny when people say every girl dreams about their wedding day because the truth is some don’t.  I, however, was one of the ones that did.  I still remember when my mom dressed me up as a bride for Halloween one year, and I thought it was the best year ever….

Weekend Recap…Happily Ever After!

This weekend was so great, but as always, WAY too fast!  We were so excited to attend the wedding of two of our friends, Justin and Kerri!  It was so much fun!!  The wedding was at the Waterview, which was beautifully decorated for Christmas, along with Kerri and Justin’s thoughtful touches.  The bride and groom…

I only listen to my Mom sometimes…

Sorry Mom, the truth is out.  I only listen to you sometimes.  The one time I didn’t listen to you and I am glad I didn’t was in regards to having Thor present at our wedding. For a little background, my Mom loves Thor, but Thor is a little challenging.  He is challenging in the cutest…

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…

Getting the best photos of your wedding day…

I was fortunate enough to have Anne Lee, as my wedding photographer.  Leading up to our wedding, Anne and I chatted back and forth, organized our engagement photo session in NYC, and discussed and planned the wedding day pretty much down to the minute.  It was so helpful that Anne had photographed many weddings prior…

Wedding Wednesday…

So I have to preface this blog post, by letting you know that I stole the idea of “Wedding Wednesday” from my super, fabulous, amazing, kind, and awesome photographer from my wedding, Anne Lee.  You can find a bunch of her work at (http://www.anneleephotography.com)!! If you aren’t interested in reading about a wedding, this is…
