I couldn’t be happier with the way our winter wedding invitations turned out. I think mailing out your invitations is the ultimate realization that “OMG I’m getting married … soon!” We were aiming to send them out at the three-month mark.

Our reception is located on the 22nd floor of a condo in Ocean City. The bathrooms for the venue are shared with the pool locker rooms.

Nowadays modern brides want a custom, beautiful keepsake to remember their special day that doesn’t belong boxed up on a shelf. Many brides are opting for customized photo books over a clunky, heavy, expensive traditional album. A […]

My inspiration was found via Pinterest, as so many things are these days, and looked something like this. (unfortunately I don’t know where this original image came from, my apologies!) Perfect for our barn setting, simple, and elegant. Plus, I had a hundred mason jars at my disposal left over from my parents canning this […]

After recently purchasing gifts for my maids, I realize how budget savvy I was being by having just two maids of honor. Of course, this is a personal choice. Here is my story: I have a soul mate. No, not my dearest man. I love him with all of my heart and soul, but since […]

We went back and forth on what to do for the bar at our wedding. We have a few non-drinkers coming to the wedding, including my fiance. It seemed silly to pay $27 per person for open bar when there are at least 10 guests who don’t drink at all (this would mean we were […]

I’m a small-town bride. Like, really small. Like, 1,200 people small. After living in this sweet, wheat farm, rural, wild turkeys in our yard, town of Waitsburg, Wash., for one year, I actually know 90 percent of everyone in this city. And it’s wonderful.
