I know, I know. Like so many other wedding bloggers, a month before the big day I disappeared, lost in an endlessly growing pile of placecards, forms to sign, details to tweak, and minor moments of panic to manage. In the home stretch of our wedding, I kept telling people I felt like a secretary, or maybe air traffic controller would be a better comparison. For those of you still waiting for the big day, be prepared to answer more emails, make more phone calls, and do more busy work that you imagine possible.
But. It was absolutely, completely, so totally worth it. Again, like other wedding bloggers I’m going to tell you that the day went perfectly. Did it, in actual fact? Well we ended up having our ceremony inside rather than out due to overcast skies (I am a Seattle girl, it’s only appropriate). But I think partly because I began this whole process with a go-with-the-flow attitude and also because our venue is just so amazing it worked out better. The whole night was a whirlwind of friends, family, vintage modern decor and details, ice cream, soul band….I could do it over and over again!
However, I’m back from the best honeymoon ever and ready to settle down to enjoying married life and of course, if you know me, a new and growing list of goals. But not before I recap those details that I missed out on sharing with you all the last few weeks! I’ve got lots of DIY projects, tips, and anecdotes to share, not to mention some wedding paraphenalia that can be used again. I’ll be selling my table numbers, dress, ring bearer pillow, and various other items so stay tuned!
In the meantime I’ll leave you with a teaser picture of our reveal from our artistic genius of a photographer, Kitty Maer. I absolutely cannot wait to see the footage she shot from our day, and neither can the rest of our guests – in fact one of my two fabulous Maids of Honor recently compared her to crack. In a good way of course :)
