Our September Wedding
Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend and are now gearing up for Christmas. After five months and a major life event I am finally back in the blogosphere. Brian and I got hitched in September, on a typical rainy Seattle day. The last final weeks leading up to the day were crazy busy! But after all the hard work and help from our awesome friends and family members, we were able to pull off a fantastic wedding. We decided to hold off on the honeymoon since we had a bunch of family fly in from out of state. Plus shortly after that I started a new job. So it’ll probably have to wait til next year!
In the next few posts, I’ll be sharing some of the DIY stuff that we did. Weddings are expensive no doubt. But I believe you can set a realistic budget for yourselves, look for creative ways to stick to that budget (and there are tons!) and still have a wedding that best represents you as a couple. In the meantime here are some of my favorite photos:
Headpiece: handmade with a flower applique from my dress, faux feathers and birdcage veil netting purchased on Etsy
Jewelry: Anthropologie & J Crew
Brian’s ‘Bill Fucking Murray’ cuff links: the Chivery
Flowers: Seattle Wholesale Growers Market
Photographer: Kevin from Alex Studio
We had the pleasure of working with some very awesome people, most especially Stacy Kvam (former manager of Melrose Market Studios), Beckie McCann of Vintage Ambiance, Jessica and Lee of Skillet Street Food, and Danny and Matt from WaSound. These people were so great to work with and have made the entire wedding planning process virtually painless and stress-free. These guys rock!
Happy holidays everyone!
