It’s like they say, wedding photos taste better with time. So I’ve aged these fine photos for over a year, because I know that you have, dear reader, have a remarkably refined pallet.
Let me begin by saying that our wedding was an absolutely dream to plan. It was stressful, sure, but we were in the unique position where both of us had lots of opinions and good taste. I like to say that Blaine and I co-art directed our wedding. We had a joint pinterest board, and we designed and made our signage, invitations, photo-booth, and even temporary tattoos. I am still smitten with our weddings colors, a pale blush and cobalt blue.
beyond the fun of designing and planning of a wedding, being Blaine’s bride was the high point of this whole endeavor. I don’t know that I have ever smiled that openly, ever loved this easily, or ever been more endeared to my friends and family who supported us. I have been the wife of an incredibly good man for over a year now, and it has been the greatest honor of my life to be a partner in this relationship.
and now, please indulge me with the posting of the pretty details and emotions of our lovefest captured by the legendary India Earl.
So we got married at 5pm on a thursday. 10/10 would recommend. It was quiet, and completely stress-free. I was really concerned that if i tried to do too much in one day, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy it. What happened instead was i got TWO full days of pure, blissful happiness. I am not exaggerating when i saw that almost everything that could have gone right, went right when it comes to our wedding, and for that i will be eternally grateful.
One of my favorite stories from our wedding day is that of my bouquet. I had ordered my fancy bouquet for the reception night, and had planned on using some of the bulk flowers we got for decorations to for the reception, but they didn’t arrive on time, so my sweet mother improvised. The Airbnb they were staying at had next door neighbors with a Peony Bush in full bloom, so she knocked on the door and asked if she could use a few buds for her daughters wedding bouquet. The man at the door said, “sure!” and so my mother and Sister-in-Law, Rachel, just casually foraged/made/arranged my wedding day bouquet and it was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. it was everything i wanted and I was so touched by how perfectly that had come together.
After our ceremony, we had a little ice cream dessert at a family friends to visit with those who were able to attend the ceremony. I can’t take any credit for the success of this, as Kim (my lovely mother in law) did all of the work for making this successful. Originally I was worried that doing a luncheon or something after the ceremony would turn our wedding weekend into two really stressful days, but doing this low key ice cream thing was one of the best decisions we made. We were able to visit with the friends and family closest to us but were not overly stressed about much of anything at all. I
