WEDDING MADNESS

With the Royal Wedding upon us, I can't help but think back to my own wedding less than a year ago. Le Sigh.

I loved my day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to do it again!


Then when my good friend Danielle (Breakfast at Toast) proposed holding a little blog crawl all about weddings I knew I had to jump in! I was initially going to dig back through all my millions of saved links to put together an inspiration board around a dream wedding that I would like to have - But I stopped. I slipped in my wedding picture disk, and then proceeded to watch the slide show in slow about 10 times in a row. And you can sure bet tears were involved.

I thought about it. Everyones wedding is so unique & deeply personal. It is what you want it to be. I always wanted a big wedding, all the hoopla growing up. The long gown, the dancing, the 'stereotypical' wedding festivities. But when the time in our planning came it wasn't there. We went to Vegas. I wore a cocktail dress (off the rack, no alterations), some banging shoes (if I do say so myself) and a great big smile!

The day couldn't have been more the Hubs and me! So relaxed, so many laughs and there was absolutely zero pressure. And I've realized that even up until now if you would have asked me what my dream wedding would look like I wouldn't have said my own. But it truly was!!!


See, look how fun it was!!!!!! (Here for all my past wedding posts) How did your wedding stack up?? Would you change anything big? Is there anything you want to make sure you do/capture on film??

PS- I canNOT wait to get home from work to watch the like 10 versions of the royal wedding I taped early this am!!!

  4. I love these pictures. You and your hubs look like so much fun! I agree that your wedding day is what you want it to be, and I'm glad you were able to capture that. I'm in the middle of planning a wedding right now that will be very me and Mr. Fiance and very us and non-traditional!

    Yep, we tied the knot in Vegas too.

    Considered having Elvis marry us, but that was a little above our budget ;).

  6. You know how I feel about your wedding photos. LOVE them. It was so great seeing you last night. I have officially decided that we are going to get together more often. Considering this was the 2nd time in 9 months, I'm thinking breaking THAT record won't be too difficult.

    Shopping next weekend. Save. The. Date.

  11. These pictures are fantastic! I would love to re-live my wedding day, after it was over I just kept saying how I wanted to do it again (like once a year maybe) :) With the same husband of course... maybe just change other things up like the dress, venue, etc just for fun!

    Happy weekend~

  19. ohhh my goodness. i just slipped into a parallel universe where i'm not a type-a worked up person that gets anal about things. you made me realize that my wedding really is what i want. i adore your dress. i love the texture and your shoes and everything. wow. im still coming back to this side of things. i'm not even kidding. where did you get married? did you plan it yourself? what things did you stick with tradition versus go against tradition?

  21. Taylor, this is amazing!!!! I love the personality in the last photo, it just shows how cute and fun that day must have been. I also had this thought of a big wedding one day, with so many inspiration folders of flowers and dresses, but I feel like when it will come time - I will want to run off to vegas too, get married, and come home to have a fun party with friends with great food and music. Thanks for sharing. And so nice to meet you this week. xo
