I think the little details are almost just as important as the big ones. I love using a simple pink design and adding glamorous pieces to dress it up 🙂
So this week we got the very exciting news that we will be having a little GIRL! My best friend, Amanda went with me to the doctors and I think we were both shocked when the ultrasound technician told us 🙂
I’ve been so excited about this pregnancy and was really hoping it would be a girl, but I didn’t want to be disappointed if it was a boy, so I kept the chances 50/50. My husband and my four year old son were deteremined it was a boy, so they were both shocked to get the news!
I have been busy beginning the preparation of designing her bedroom! I can’t wait to start putting everything together! Of course with a girl comes a lot of pink, but I’m ok with that! I have found some great pieces that I really like and will look great together. I will start adding pics and websites of the great deals I find in the future 🙂
Since just having the wedding, we will be doing the babies room on a budget! But I am optimistic it will turn out gorgeous!
It has been nearly 53 days since Reuben and I “tied the knot”. It has been the best fifty three days of my life…
Not only was our wedding amazing, it was way more than I could of asked for. So many things seemed to have changed last minute (which was stressful in itself), but I was overwhelmed with the amount of hard work, friends and members of our Church, put into making it magical.
Our photographer, Rose DeVore http://rosedevorephotography.blogspot.com/2010/12/we-were-given-two-hands-to-hold.html?spref=fb, really captured our love for one another in every photo.
Just a little advice for upcoming brides for the day of: DON’T stress about how things will turn out, you enjoy it soooo much more when you are carefree and enjoying yourself 🙂
Only F O U R D A Y S until our wedding! I can’t believe it’s almost here 🙂
I’ve been working hard trying to get those last minute details perfect, let’s hope it turns out perfect! I can’t wait!!!!
T w e n t y T w o days.. I can’t believe it’s getting so close to my wedding day!!
I’ve had to make some final decisions to tie everything together… I was having a hard time trying to decide what color of nail polish to wear. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to wear color or not; so I finally made up my mind! I was at my trial makeup session last week, and my makeup artist was wearing this darling pale pink/ivory color, turned out to be Sweetheart by O.P.I; I went out and bought it right away!
Now with that out of the way, I had to decide how I wanted to wear my hair… I had originally thought a glamorous, loose natural bun, but with my dress being strapless and it being Fall, I think I should opt for at least half up, half down. Only thing is, I can’t find a specific hairstyle that is standing out to me 🙁 … I have my trial hair session on Saturday, so hopefully I fall in love with something, fast!
Oh, and some things have changed since the last time I posted, we found out we’re pregnant with our second child! What a surprise that was, although I’m super ecstatic! So, this changed a few minor things.. I changed a few things with our menu a little bit to lower the price about $5 per person, decided to spend less on alcohol and opted with a more affordable wedding favor. And I’m still just as happy as I was before! Now, we get to look forward to adding a new member to our family!
I had THE most amazing bridal shower ever!!
I absolutely loved the place it was at. It was at a place called Park Alley Tavern in Olde Town Pickerington. The upstairs, where the shower took place, was very rich in history, built in the late 1800’s. The ceiling was gorgeous, I don’t even know how to describe what it was made of, but it was very elegant, vintage… Right in tune with the theme I’m going after for the wedding! When I walked in, I had to go up these dark wood, super wide stairs and was met by my hostess and amazing maid of honor! Behind her was a gorgeous baby grand piano covered with glass vases filled with gorgeous ivory, garden roses and natural branches. There was also one enormous, gorgeous orange flower I have no clue what it was.
Amanda had customized fall leaves with mine and Reubens names and our wedding date. These aligned the tabels along with beautiful olive and orange candels and beaded holders. Everything just came together so amazingly! When I had first arrived, I had numerous people tell me to go and look at the cake.. It was a three- tier round cake that was decorated with my exact colors. It was an ivory cake with white detail and very detailed leaves and acorns. The three tiers consisted of pink champagne- with real strawberries between layers, banana (delishh) and lemon. This cake was to die for! Delicious 🙂
Everything was fabulous, I couldn’t have asked for more! My friend, and amazing photographer was there and took tons of pictures!! I can’t wait to post some on here 🙂
Check back soon for pictures!!!
Today is Thursday, August 18th and my bridal shower is on Saturday!! I can’t wait 🙂 I am really looking forward to seeing everyone and celebrate. Not to mention, my MOD (maid of honor) has done an absolute fabulous job at setting everything up, and I can’t wait to see how it turns out! I have been to a couple of bridal showers this summer and it’s so fun to hear all of the details about the wedding and get to know the bride and groom a little better. I’m truely looking forward to mine! Hopefully we will get a ton a amazing pictures so I can post them on here for everyone to see 🙂
Wish me luck, and lets’ hope we get some of the entertaining pieces we asked for 😉

So I’ve been told many times before that I should be a party/wedding planner! I love entertaining and hosting special events for my family and friends. I have had the absolute BEST time preparing for my wedding and would love to do that for others as well. I am going to seriously consider doing this for fun 🙂
I already have a fabulous idea for a late winter wedding! While shopping for my wedding, by far my favorite color combo would be blush pink and a very light grey or even a charcoal grey. I have so many beautiful ideas with this color palette, I hope I have the chance to put them to use!
S i x t y 3 days 🙂 <3
Until I marry the man of my dreams
I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting married so I notice it more, but I know so many people getting married! I absolutely love to see decor, setup and design ideas at other weddings. It just makes me super excited to see how all my ideas come to life the day of my wedding!
I’m just over two months from my wedding day 🙂
With everything pretty much done now, the waiting part is killer. I just want it to be here already!
The only problem that I seem to be having right now is deciding on a nail color. It’s petty, I know, but something like this is important to me! I’ve been apting for a plum color, so I tried Deeply in Love by Nicole OPI. It’s a gorgeous color! I’m going to try a natural color next time I go to the salon to see how I feel about it. I don’t want to choose something that later on, when I look back at my photos, I will wonder what I was thinking. But I want something that is unique and will look glamorous and stand out in pictures!
What are you guys’ thoughts on COLOR for your wedding day?
