It was bound to happen. I have a blog and I got married. We just saw a few of the pictures late last night (most of them won’t be in for weeks), so here is the inevitable:
My Wedding Blog!
Don’t worry. I will let the pictures do most of the talking and save you the “lemon fondant icing” details. But first, I will show you these somewhat lackluster pictures (Aaron is clearly the only photog in the family) I took of our invitations, because we loved them so much! Our very good friend Ruthi Auda who is an incredibly talented artist designed them for us and this was the wonderful end result:
On the back of the RSVP cards was a space for guests to send us their “words of wisdom”. We enjoyed so much getting to read people’s thoughts, advice, and insights!
A few weeks and months passed and June 6th, 2010 finally rolled around. It was a hot one. Not just Texas hot, but breaking records for extreme heat in Texas hot. The good news is it didn’t rain 🙂
Here is the rest of the story in just a few pictures:
Neil Lane Jewelry and Hair Combs
Diego Dolcini flats from Confederacy.
I added the silk rosettes and switched out the existing ribbon for the silk ivory ribbon.
The groomsmen wore black cardigans and dress pants with their polka dot ties, striped socks, and Vans.
All three of them are already so i-Phone savvy it will blow your mind!
I am not ashamed to say that the first words I spoke to Aaron when we got into the car and were leaving the wedding were “Please! You have got to loosen this corset!”
Mariah McManus on guitar singing Adele’s arrangement of “To Make You Feel My Love”.
The fireworks were a great surprise from Aaron’s brother and bestman! We left under a sea of sparklers into the back of a 1940 Cadillac Limousine to end the most perfect night!

(We were actually the last wedding to take place in their old artisan ballroom. Sadly, it caught fire a couple days later and burnt to the ground, but is already being rebuilt as we speak.)
