A look back at the moments getting ready for our wedding.
After spending all day the Friday before our wedding getting the venue setup, I was absolutely exhausted. I had about an hour of downtime to shower and get ready for the rehearsal and dinner and I was starting to silently panic. The weather was awful on Friday and the forecast for Saturday wasn’t looking much better — […]
It’s no secret that James and I take our beer and wine very seriously. As the daughter of a homebrewer, I grew up hopping from brew pub to brew pub on family vacations and helping my dad bottle his beer in our basement. It’s no surprise I inherited my dad’s love of hops. James shares that passion, […]
It’s no secret that wedding costs add up quickly. You pick out a cake, a dress, the flowers — pretty soon you’ve spent enough to buy a car or put down a mortgage on a house! The costs can be overwhelming at times — and not just for the bride and groom. Being in the […]
(Photo by Stephen Hass Photography) I am so, so glad I planned a wedding in the age of Pinterest and Etsy. How did people do it before?! Both sites were invaluable when it came to finding inspiration for our big day. We knew we wanted to go with a tandem bike theme, but looking through […]
We are just ten days away from our wedding. I still can’t believe it’s almost here! Earlier tonight, James and I were talking about how it hasn’t really hit us yet that we’re finally going to be married. We’ve been talking about and planning a wedding for so long that we don’t feel any different […]
We’re just about two weeks away from the wedding, y’all. HOLY COW. I can’t tell you how excited I am for the big day to get here. James and I have been engaged for about a year and a half. It’s been great because we’ve been able to spread the planning process out and really […]
James and I made our last trip home before the wedding over the weekend. It still hasn’t hit me that we’re getting married in a matter of weeks! We went home to finalize some details with vendors, finish up some DIY projects and do a little much-needed relaxing. One of the many things on our to-do […]
Our baker made the best mistake ever. When it was time for us to choose the flavors for our wedding cake, she accidentally gave us someone else’s samples. That meant we got to sample twice as much, with the help of our niece and nephew. Is that what heaven’s like? Picking the right cake was extremely […]
Did I fail to mention my bridesmaids are all total babes? They can wear anything and make it look good. But, I want them to feel good when they’re at the wedding, too. One of the many things I love about these girls is how unique all of their personalities are — including their styles. […]
I’m extremely lucky to have so many amazing gal pals. From college, to my first job, to my new life in Bloomington, I’ve formed friendships that will last a lifetime. If I could, I would have every single one of my girls standing up next to me on my wedding day. But, having 18 bridesmaids […]
