Captured!

Posted 06/19/2009 by in Photography \ 2 comments

I’ve saved my favorite element of our wedding for last:  Photography!  We funneled any would-be videography budget all into photography and I’ve never had a second doubt!  Photography is the element of your wedding that captures every other piece and freezes it together with all the other details forever.  All that planning and energy and effort you put into all …

The Day is in the Details…

My last two posts of my week-long wedding recap are mostly photograph-based.  Not that I don’t love gabbing about our wedding incessantly, but I think the pictures speak for themselves when it comes to little itty-bitty details (and when it comes to my last post: my favorite photographs – obviously).

I will say this… the details made our wedding.  Even if …

The Ties that Bind…

Considering that the whole entire purpose of a wedding is… (wait for it)… to get married (!!! who knew, right?), it was shocking how little focus there often is on planning the ceremony that actually binds two people together.  Of course, we were no different – waiting until what felt like the last minute to really get down to the …

Sips & Bites!

Ah Food and Drink… that’s what everyone comes to a wedding to do isn’t?  {Besides exclaim over how the lace pattern on our invitations matched the lace inlays on my dress, obviously.}

I’ll start with the beverages… we were very lucky to have picked a venue that let us bring in our own alcohol.  We saved a pretty penny by buying …

Wedding Party Style Lookbook

Pretty Maids All in a Row:

Oh bridesmaid dresses.  AKA, Bane of My Existence.  We had quite the time choosing dresses for my seven lovely ladies, partially because I was a bit of a Color Fiend, and partially because I really wanted something that wasn’t so… well, bridesmaid-y.

Color – I knew I wanted the girls in a deep raspberry color (or …

Merchandizin’ It Up

As do many of us who began our mini-adult lives with nothing to our name but our grandma’s chipped fiestaware and much-loved box-sets of Sex and the City (I even have Seasons 1-3 on VHS, what-what!), I am firm in my belief that its the accessories that make the clothes that then make “the look.”

And once I had “the dress” …

Seeking… “The” Dress

Posted 06/17/2009 by in Beauty, What To Wear \ 6 comments

If there is one “pretty thing” I love more than paper, it would have to be fashion, hands down.  So of course, the hunt for the perfect dress and the perfect wedding day style began as soon as I said “I will.”  While I had a general idea of what I wanted (well, more what I didn’t want: no beads, …

My Gorgeous Austin Venue

While the Monica Geller in me imagined my wedding looking a thousand different ways over the years, one element remained a constant: I would be married – come hell or high water – in my home town of Austin.  There’s no other city like Austin in the world – the energy of the people and the natural beauty of the …

Pretty Paper: From Our Mailbox to Yours!

If you’ve ever stopped by EA on a Thursday morning, than you know that I’m a huge paper freak!  I could spend hours upon hours in Paper Source; hand me a piece of sumptuous letterpress and I’m in visual and tactile heaven!  So when it came to our wedding and decisions concerning all-things-paper, I was as happy as a pig …

What’s in a Theme?

Posted 06/15/2009 by in Color Palette, Inspiration \ 5 comments

While I’m the first one on board for a 1980s Prom Party or a Tacky Christmas Sweater Holiday Fete, thematic weddings were just never my style.  Sure, I’ve seen them gorgeously and creatively executed by other brides, but my ideas for our wedding just didn’t seem to fit into any sort of simply categorized box.

I wanted Elegant… yet Fun and …
