Better late than never, we’re sharing the wedding of Cris, one of our previous bride bloggers! Cris blogged about her wedding planning process here on BSB, and shared her Alaska wedding already, but today will be our first look at her beautiful backyard wedding in Texas.
Recently someone was asking me about how the Boy and I are having two weddings and how we are handling family. What she wanted to know specifically was, “did we have to handle any tricky or delicate issues while planning the weddings and how did we

Now that y’all have found out a bit about my bizarre need to organize and you’ve also been party to my ideas for The Boy and my wedding ceremony – it’s time for you see my reception mood board (cue the choir of angels…)! Remember that we’re getting
