{51 – Thrifty in White}

If we’re going to be really honest here — and we are, but only for today– this wedding is getting big and a little complicated. You don’t have to tell me that everything will be beautiful and the day will end up being lovely. I know that. I’m putting in countless hours each week to

{58 – PDA – Pretty Haute Mess}

I have oscillated through a handful of Online Bridal Site Phases. Hear me out. I started out not wanting to get sucked into Wedding World. Everyone looked so happy all the time; it didn’t seem normal. From the outside, it looked like a world of white, where women drank red wine and didn’t spill it

{Engagement Blooper Reel}

And… as promised. With the Good comes, also, the Bad and the Ugly. Happily Jayd is a kickass photographer so the bad photos were alarmingly few and far between. But. Thanks to my super-awkward face, they were there. And now, they’re here! If there was an Academy Award Ceremony… for completely and horribly and irreparably

{Our Engagement}

Yes! At long last, our Engagement Photos are ready to be seen by {The Whole World}! Hurrah! {Are you cheering? I shall assume you are cheering!} Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration: The Groom & I. We opted to shoot in our old ‘hood, where we lived together as a couple for the first time.

{Thinly Veiled} – Sheila’s Bridal

I was not in the least bit interested in wearing a veil on my wedding day. First of all, I’m not that pure, as most of the bridesmaids in my party can {and will} attest. Second, I’m the single most graceless woman on the face of the planet. I’m a wrecking ball wearing ballet flats.

{J. Crew: The Full Story}

All right. The girls have received their dresses – for the most part – so I make no hesitation to tell the rest of brides out there the epic tale of getting 6 bridesmaids who live several thousand miles from one another fitted, ordered and on the same page. First, I have to let it

{Funny Story.}

Y’all wanna hear the funniest damn story? I bet you do. Remember, that one time, when I got all excited because we found the bridesmaid dresses at J.Crew? And then, recall that other time, when they told me that they had been discontinued, and all the sizes were sold out? Remember? … Remember? {click, if

{Engagement Shoot: My Favorite}

Hey, y’all. I owe you an apology. This week has been more intense than I expected, and it’s not going to ease up anytime soon. I have a lot of ideas ready for a Post-Thanksgiving, Post-Novel, Pre-Christmas posts that are going to make everyone’s soul heave a sign of relief and crack a smile, no

{Teaser} Engagement Bloopers

Also in the works for your viewing delight are some of what I affectionately call The Blooper Reel. Because I can’t keep my eyes open and James is just so silly, and because let’s face it, marriage itself is largely made out of blooper-reel moments. For example, when one of us thinks, float gracefully and

{Sneak Peek}

I just received our Engagement Photos– oh my word. I don’t want to scoop my photographer, so I’m only going to post my absolute favorite, and I’m going to wait until Tuesday to do it. But. In the meantime. Here’s a little sample for you. Make sure to check out Jayd’s blog on Monday to
