  • Wedding Wednesday

I remember getting engaged and immediately people asked me what the colors were going to be… and the theme, and the venue and my dress. AH! Talk about overload! Wow! I wasn’t one of those girls that had been planning her wedding since she was 5. I had no idea what type of dress I wanted, what venue I wanted or what our colors were going to be (well I knew one of them:).  I was overwhelmed.

Oh my goodness! Think Mediterranean, warm, sunny, mountains, teal water and blue skies. WE LOVE TURKEY! We had an awesome tour guide that showed us around Ancient Ephesus and it blew our minds!
