I still have not received my DVD of my pictures so cannot do my recap yet but we were very honored to have our wedding featured on Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book Blog. Early in the process I got caught up in being “blog worthy” but the funny thing is that I truly did lose that along the way. The day became about celebrating us with lots of love and special people and that is what happened.
And the interesting thing is this
I am not a size 2
I am not 25-32 years old and I sure as heck do not look like a model
Our wedding was at a hotel (ok it was the Four Seasons) but still a basic ballroom wedding not a barn or fabulous chic location
It was intercultural
I am taller than my husband
there are no mason jars and no burlap
While our wedding was not “budget” it also was not extravagant – slightly below the national average
What is featured are pictures of a pretty day where two middle aged geeks got married and had a great time with friends and family. So do not hesitate to pour yourselves and your heart into your wedding. I am really honored to be featured but in the end it did not matter to me.
So here is the link if you are curious and mostly I posted this to say thank you to everyone here who patiently answered questions and put up with my crap for the months of planning

Didn’t your first photog with engagement shots horribly insult you two? You should send this to him/her and rub it in their faces. You are clearly an amazing, loving, and stylish couple :-)!!!

@crayfish: Yes, I cannot believe you remember this. She said we were unphotogenic and bad models. The wedding industry is pretty close knit here in Vegas, I will assume she will hear but I doubt she will care.
I think it does not matter what people look like, a good photographer captures the emotion and that is what makes people beautiful. Moral of the story is make sure you hire the best photographer you can find/afford AND make sure you click with him/her because in the end the pictures are your memories 🙂

@unixfairy: OMG I LOVE THOSE PHOTOBOOTH SIGNS!
Congrats on the blog-worthy wedding!
The florals are stunning and the cake! wow the cake is super unique! Are those sugar flowers?
I loved reading what you wrote as well. You are a lovely story teller!
Incorporating your theme everywhere is amazing as well!
OH AND I love that your day was fancy & chic but also easy & fun! That is exactly what I want for my day and I love seeing everything work so well! 😀

Unless you’re going to be selling them?! 😀
What a beautiful day!

@KimmySumShuga: Not selling them because PM me your email address and I will send the file to you with instructions on how to make
very easy to make and I think it is hilarious that my easiest DIY is the one everyone has loved – SMP pinned them on their wedding whimsy board and they are getting repinned a lot LOL
And yes the flowers are sugar paste 🙂

@unixfairy: Saw this earlier in the day and I remember thinking how beautiful all the details were. Everything is oh so very stunning, and you look beautiful in the pictures!
Quick question…where did you get your programs, did you DIY them our outsource them?

Actually those were our Menus (we skipped programs) and they are DIY. The front was our monogram that I designed and the back was a vintage bird image that we used on several of the paper items with the quote “time to drink chammpagne and dance on the table” – this was printed on champagne cardstock and then the inside was the menu and individual quotes printed on pink vellum and my Darling Husband used a Martha Stewart stamp to do a lace edge for the vellum and we used tassels to hold the cardstock and vellum together
I designed them in Microsoft Publisher and printed at home on a laser printer

@Mrs. Fireworks: Thanks they were also super easy
I used a label template from avery and then just reused the frame from our monogram – font was from dafont.com – printed them on champagne cardstock with the birds on the reverse – the keys were from Kennedy Hardware and the rhinestone pins were from Victorian Trading Company. My venue coordinator asked for a write up on how to make and I can send if you like 🙂
