An Alice in Wonderland-Themed Bridal Shower

January 2nd, 2013 by     

My bridal shower was thrown by my sister/MOH and bridesmaids.  It was a complete surprise and turned out fantastic.  They know I have a fondness for Alice in Wonderland, so all they did was class it up a little, and it turned out to be the perfect theme. My sister also set up a ton of games for us to play, including lingerie limbo. They tied new lingerie to a broomstick, and we limbo-ed! Plus, I got to keep all the goodies!  Also, that whole toilet paper dress game, I thought I’d hate it, but it turned out to be pretty amusing.  I’ve upload some photos here so you can see!

A little advice–make sure you have your guests mark off on the registry what they bought you. A few things weren’t marked off, and we got three sets of dishes! Yikes! Thankfully, it was an easy exchange. We basically have a brand new kitchen now, I’m very lucky!

Gardenia Bud Gets Married!

April 12th, 2012 by

Along with the times, my vision has changed a few hundred thousand times.

My fiancee Andrew (AP) and I have a history that spans Pokemon and Capri Pants to Present Day.

Time has played a huge role in our relationship.  And it’s led me to want to create a wedding that’s trendless, themeless and timeless.

A wedding that’s a visual reflection of our timeline, would look like a Pog collection exploded.

With one year to go, I’m working on developing our sans theme wedding style with inspiration from interior design, fashion, nature and other real weddings. I’m looking forward to sharing my process and ideas…and getting plenty of feedback, starting with: Who was your favorite New Kid?
