Rue de Seine bridal

I’m ready to say “I do” to these absolutely dreamy wedding gowns by Rue de Seine. Dripping with beads and jewels and lacy bits, they’re the very definition of romance – swoon!

I was rummaging through our closet the other day and out fell these babies – the Save The Dates from our barn wedding! Yippee! We sold most of our wedding paraphernalia, including my dress (sad face) due to lack of storage space, so this was a sweet little souvenir to stumble upon.

Funny side story – Hubs and I designed these ourselves and those chatty piglets were a major point of contention while we were putting this together. I ADAMANTLY wanted pigs – I mean, are they not everyone’s favorite barnyard animal? However, the crazy swine flu epidemic was going on at the time and pigs were getting a bad rap, so Hubs wanted to use a different animal that didn’t scream omg we’re all going to die! Ohhh the totally bizarre things you argue about under the stress of wedding planning. I’m really glad the piggies made the cut in the end – they still make me giggle 2 years later!

Gorgeous floral head piece? Check.
Cheerful billy ball bouquet? Check.
Darling pink ribbon shoe clips? Check.
Charmingly rustic burlap ring pillow? Check.

Looking through the wedding wares at whichgoose makes me want to send out Save the Dates for a second wedding bash! Now if only I could get the Mister onboard with this idea…

I am truly madly deeply in love with this amazing wedding invitation that was the collaborative work of MaeMae Paperie, Duet Weddings, and Debra Chow (who had the added task of being the bride). Talk about a triple whammy! Those Polaroid-style illustrations depicting scenes from the couple’s time together are unbearably adorable, and add the perfect whimsical touch to a truly exquisite set. Check out more photos here!

Calligraphy address stamp from Emilie Friday | Romantic flourishes envelope addressing from Perch Paper Co. | Thoughtful Day invite from Love, Jenna | Jolene font style hand calligraphy from Pink Ink Paper & Calligraphy

Thank you for your lovely comments yesterday! Here’s hoping that we all complete our lists with shiny gold stars by the end of the summer :-)

Speaking of, all of this gorgeous calligraphy makes me want to add one more teeny line at the end of my my summer to-do’s: “Sign up for a calligraphy class – this instant!”

Gloria and John wedding at The Barns

I present to you our wedding photos – finally! Better late than never, right? We put in a lot of DIY love and sweat and tears into our big day, and surviving wedding planning seemed bleak at times. The extra effort, however, made the end result absolutely magical for us and our guests – all the hot glue gun finger burns were worth it to see our loved ones having a blast! Not to mention I picked up a lot of new crafty skills in the process – I swear I could make a fabric flower garland or whip up a chalkboard window frame in my sleep at this point :-)

Check out more of our photobooth silliness here!
