Mich and Carla’s Mountain Wedding

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

When Corey and I first arrived to the location of Mich and Carla’s wedding in Hot Springs, NC, my jaw dropped.  I knew that Carla was an artist and that there would be some decorations, but literally every single inch of the ceremony and reception space was covered with beautiful and personal details.  A dessert bar with cupcake recommendations based on Mich or Carla’s taste, an elaborate drink bar covered in mason jars, flavored moon shine, and stripy straws, a s’mores bar, stringed lights and fabric hanging from the trees, and a painted cabinet full of succulents to give out as favors.  But the wedding wasn’t just visually beautiful.  So much love radiated through the entire day, from the emotional ceremony that had everyone in tears (including me, which made taking pictures a little dicey) to the band continuing to play acoustically with everyone huddled together under the tent after a monsoon poured over the entire space.  Everyone was so thrilled to be able to celebrate Mich and Carla and the love that they have for each other.  I could not be happier to have been included in their day.  Congratulations ladies!

Grand Budapest Hotel Wedding Inspiration

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I saw Grand Budapest Hotel back in late winter and have wanted to do a wedding inspiration collage ever since.   As usual, the movie had the Wes Anderson staples of vibrant colors and picture perfect composure, as well as the hint of whimsy and nostalgia that really attracts me to his movies in the first place.  Although I don’t think any of his films will ever beat Fantastic Mr. Fox, for me, this came in as a close second.  My favorite part was the innocent love story between the lobby boy and Agatha, the sweet baker from Mendl’s.  As always, Ralph Fiennes was genius.  That man can do no wrong.

Dresses for Weddings

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

At the end of August, Colleen and I are going to our cousin’s wedding in Seattle.  I am super excited as I have never been to the Pacific Northwest and the last time I saw most of my extended family was at Colleen’s wedding which was almost 3 years ago.  Yikes.  That went fast. My mom has 5 sisters so this side of the family is really big and we always have fun.  Anyways, I would really like to buy myself a nice new dress so I can feel pretty while I am at the wedding.  However, I have been having some difficulty.  Why is it that they make all summer dresses white?  How many white dresses do we really need?  Don’t they know that most of the time when we need a nice dress in the summer it is because we are going to a wedding and we can’t even wear white because then we look like a crazy person who is trying to steal the bride’s thunder??  Somebody needs to explain this to the dress makers.  I have found several that I like and I thought I would ask y’alls opinion about which one is most attractive to you.

1. I have been eyeing this one from Anthro for some time but I am not sure about the cut in the front and whether it would give me a weird boob situation like it kinda does to the model.  The back is cool.

2. This looks like Paris to me.

3. So the website says this is gray but I must admit it looks like it could be a little ivory-ish.  Too close to a wedding dress?

4.  I think this one is precious and an excellent cut for my body type.

5.  Jessica bringing it like usual with a pretty maxi dress.

6.  The watercolor and the pattern on this dress is gorg.

7.  This is simple and lovely and reasonably priced and could probably be worn again frequently.  But I must admit these backless dresses make me feel some anxiety.  I fear this would create a boob situation of a different kind.  What sorts of solutions do you guys have for holding things up and in in a dress like this?

Thoughts?
