Wedding Color Ideas | Teal and PINK!

  • Wedding Wednesday

Really?! There has probably NEVER been so much PINK on the blog at one time! I’ve just never been a real “Pink” person. Well, except for high school. I went through the “Pink and orange” phase before I became obsessed with TEAL! So the wedding last weekend mixed red and teal and I loved it! I just always default to doing Teal and green. I’m stuck in a rut. So today I thought I would introduce a fresh new color palette to Wedding Wednesday! Hot pink and teal! Whew! It’s bright!

A Bride and Groom Shower

  • A Bride and Groom Shower

… to feel more and more real! 10.10.10 has seemed so long away this whole year… until this summer. With less than two months to go, we are scrambling. We’re trying to get home improvement projects done…. now on TWO houses and we’re still planning details and working with vendors. It’s coming together! With every little step, it is feeling more and more real! Last night, some of our closest family friends got together and threw us a Bride and Groom shower. It was wonderful!!! Church friends that we have known our whole lives came together to celebrate and shower us with gifts! Talk about fun!!!

My Day Off

  • My Day Off

….today is my self-declared “day off”.  You know, because I am my own boss and I lay down the law for this business! I’ve decided that today there will be no more editing, emails or albums.  Nothing. Today is a day to be excited and focused on the fact that I’m getting married! In like 60 some days!! AH!  It’s very easy to get wrapped up in everything I have to do and forget just how exciting this time is. By the time I normally finish a work day, I am rushing to get wedding stuff done and I find myself driving to ShortPump, again. I live 40+ minutes away from real civilization….. and real civilization means having a Walmart nearby! I have to drive 4o minutes to run errands
