Mint is a fabulous color choice for a wedding. It looks great any season and pairs perfectly with a wide variety of hues (I'm partial to pairing it with gold and coral tones.)

As a wedding invitation designer, it's my job to educate my brides on proper etiquette for the wording of their invitations. It's not just fancy cardstock and pretty graphics. Traditional invitations follow very specific rules, such as: invitations are always written in the third person and the bride's name always comes before the groom's.

One of the details from our wedding that I get the most questions about was my brooch bouquet. Friends, family, and complete strangers who have seen our wedding on Pinterest all seem to agree that it was beautiful and unique. It really was unique and held so much meaning. From the lace handkerchief that my sister-in-law included on the handle (that once belonged to my husband's great-grandmother), to the charm that was once my grandmother's engagement ring, my brooch bouquet is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life

Our reception was an absolute blast. Complete chaos, but lots of fun! The food was very good, the cakes were delectable, and the booze was flowing! The DJ played great music and people danced...some until they couldn't anymore. My maid-of-honor brought me to tears with her speech and the best-man made us all laugh. It wasn't glamorous, it wasn't perfect, but it was exactly what we both wanted. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding and I'm so happy I've been able to share our wedding, step-by-step, with everyone!
We passed the two months married mark while we were on vacation in Biloxi. When you've been with someone for nearly nine years, two months doesn't seem like that long. It use to be people asked us constantly, "When are you two getting married?" Now they ask us, "Does it feel different?" (followed by, "When are you two going to have a baby?") To avoid the latter subject altogether, I'd say it doesn't feel much different at all. Legally it's different, but that's about it. We are still crazy...and crazy about each other. It's a wonderful feeling knowing that we are bonded forever by something as beautiful as marriage, but I don't think it's changed us at all.
I promise we didn't actually do any mooning'. Actually...there could have been one instance of moonin'. When the time is right, the time is right. We did honeymoon and we honeymoon'd the best way we knew how. We explored back roads, we slept in a treehouse, we hunted for all the springs that were left in Eureka Springs, we made friends, we hit caves (literally, I got a concussion in a cave), the Waffle Box was attacked by a llama, I loved on a baby camel, and we ate...we ate A LOT (I brought home 6 extra pounds to prove it!)
