Come on. You know you wanna know all about the dress.

{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?

{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

J.Crew & I {Groom Remix}

*This post is brought to you courtesy of James, The Groom. If there’s one thing I love and miss the most about High School (this is a very small list), it’s wearing dressy clothes. Something about the feel of a suit just makes you feel extra important and this weekend, I got to go looking

J. Crew & I

J. Crew and I aren’t breaking up. I just feel like I need to preface the following story with that fact. I still love J. Crew, and respect J. Crew, and can clearly recall the days during which the sun rose and set by J. Crew. But holy shit are J. Crew and I ever
