• {My Wedding} The Details!

    So in case you didn’t see yesterday, my wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty this week, and I’m still riding on that high!  It has been 10 months since my wedding and I thought I was sort of “over it” but having my wedding on SMP has reminded me how much I loved that day and how wonderful it was.  So I wanted to share some more of the detail photos.

    I wore shoes from J.Crew (that I got on sale for $99), had a dress label sewn into my gown with my married name and wedding date (bought from etsy seller danamariecreations), my gown was the “Fern” by Melissa Sweet, my mom gave me a hanky with family heirlooms stitched on which I wrapped around my bouquet, my maids and I wore earrings by Erin Gallagher and I wore a garter by Julianne Smith.

    My florals were done by Greenwich Floral Design.  We did multiples mixed with larger arrangements (but all low) in vintage containers I collected like milk glass, white pottery pitchers, glass bottles and mason jars, etc.  If only peonies had not recently gone out of season my florals would have been just what I wanted, but I loved them anyways.

    I collected vintage keys and tied them to our escort cards (and also to floral containers).  I made my programs myself and included custom made cd’s inside of music we love and incorporated into our wedding.  I did lots of other DIY projects, like the petal cones above.  We served Hemingway mojitos as our signature drink, as a nod to my husband’s favorite writer (he is also a writer and a book lover).  We had cupcakes in lieu of cake, done by our favorite bakery, Vanilla Bake Shop.

    My maid of honor and I designed all of my paper goods.  We started with a custom monogram and incorporated that in my save-the-dates, invitations, programs, welcome bags, cupcake flags, and drink stirs.  We also made my entire invitation suite (which was letterpress printed at Studio on Fire).  We made signs for the card table, guestbook table, bathroom baskets, flip flop baskets, and cake table.  Besides my invites, my favorite paper elements were my cupcake flags, my drink stirs (which had our monogram on one side and famous quotes about drinking on the other side), and the cootie catcher menus!  As a result of our collaboration, we started an etsy shop called Tilde Designs where we sell all of these paper goods, among other things, and do custom orders.  Check us out so we can both become stay-at-home moms someday instead of the lawyers we currently are!

    I hope you like the details from my wedding.  Please leave any questions in the comment section and I would be happy to answer them!

    I’ve also done previous posts of some of the DIY projects I did.  To see those go here, here, and here.  I’ll so a full feature of the wedding and details one of these days 🙂

    •  Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨
       Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo  You know what is a great motivator? Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo
