Hello, dear readers!  Sorry for the long break.  I’m getting ready to start up a business here in SoCal (DIY brides, let me know if you need a hand with DIY wedding flowers…it’s the basis of my biz!) so it’s been a bit crazy ’round here!

Flowers were such a hugely important part of my day (see here, here, here, here, …


The Reveal!

One of the things that dr. dave and I had debated prior to the wedding was whether we would see each other prior to the ceremony or not.  While we both liked the tradition of not seeing one another until the moment I was walking down the aisle, there were a few factors that led to our decision to have …


Getting ready!!!

Hello, lovelies!  So sorry it’s been a while since my last post.  We’re trying to pull together our new apartment, and it’s slowly but surely coming along and becoming our new home.!  We got our pictures from Andrew and Jessica yesterday, so I wanted to start up the recaps of our wedding!

I’ll be able to give you photos of all …



Dr. dave and I were laughing the whole day of the wedding about my “plans” for the ceremony.  I had “planned” this and “planned” that…and the one thing I didn’t plan for, rain, was what happened.

The day before the wedding, Friday, was just beautiful.  The rehearsal dinner went off without a hitch (other than there being quite a few confused …


That’s MRS dr. dave to you!

Dr. dave and I were married last Saturday amidst lots and lots of Colorado rain (and it’s very uncharacteristic for it to rain for more than 5 minutes at a time in Denver!).  We had an amazing wedding, filled with our fantastic families and close friends.  A handful of things went wrong: we had to move the ceremony indoors, we …

Today’s the day…

Happy Saturday, EAD! Well, today is our big day. The day we’ve been planning for over the last 15 months. The day we’ve been waiting for with bated breath for the past week. The day we’ll remember forever as sealing the love we have.
It’s been an amazing journey.
We both cried just rehearsing our ceremony last night…it’s …


Something old, something rhyme-y…

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in your shoe. According to The Knot, “something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity, although this remains largely …

Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it’s getting!

-write vows!!!
-write toasts…
-make arch decor for ceremony
-practice my surprise song for dr. dave that i’ll be singing at the reception

-pick up flowers …


Reflections upon the planning process

Happy Wednesday, EAD! FYI, if anyone ever asks if you want to get married, take the board exams, move, and take grad school finals in one week, please say no. Just trust us on this one.

Big realization today: it’s my last week as a single gal. The last 15 months have been quite the crazy journey, and it’s only …


At last, my love has come along…

EEEEEEEK! Here it is, ladies and gents. The post we’ve all been waiting for (I mean, come on, let’s be honest…what’s the best part of wedding planning? The dress shopping!). Dr. Dave, now is your cue to stop reading (that is, if you ever read the blog!). I’m going to tell you the story of my dress, …

The B-word…Bridezilla!

Oof. Such a strong, hurtful word.

It’s become such a common part of wedding terminology. A girl gets engaged, and bam! It’s “don’t become a Bridezilla!” All of a sudden, a girl who cares about her wedding design or the little details (like a lot of us here at EAD do!) gets the term thrown at her.

Which is not to say …


Peonies, DIY, jewelry, apparel…oh yes. This post has it all.

Phew. Sorry. I get a little excited when it comes to weekends lately. After all, I’m still in class, studying for finals, getting ready to start my internship, planning a wedding, moving, trying to keep my fiance sane as he studies for the board exams…phew! So weekends are always a welcome time for me to catch up on …
