just sayin’: our wedding brunch

now, i’m a little out of order, but here are some pictures and details from our wedding brunch. we had everyone over to my parents’ house and i’m so thankful we did it – we had a chance to really visit and talk with everyone!




my bridal flowers, from christopher joseph designs in birmingham, made for a great centerpiece – and who doesn’t want to use them again?! i lovvvvvvved them.





we placed ben’s boutonniere out as well (also by chris) i loved the colors.





the leftover cups from our cereal bar at the wedding were great for coffee at the brunch!




our cater, chef on call, brought amazing bloody mary mix – so of course we set-up a bar cart. my sister found this one on craig’s list last year and this was the perfect time to use it.

the pictures are from my grandparents’ and mom and dad’s wedding.





the mini mr and mrs banner are reused from one of our cake toppers. and we had to have tito’s for our austin friends!










the love letters are repurposed from a beauty baby shower we threw for one of my honorary bridesmaids – it’s my favorite paper source print!


a gift area was set-up, and we used the banner from the wedding shower my alabama pals hosted – it looked great with the living room colors.






instead of a guest book we had a wishing tree. we stamped tags with our wedding logo. i’ll be sure to share pictures of that.

sunday after brunch was the perfect time to read through all the sweet wishes from our friends and family – tear.



a big thanks to katie at wedding belles events for helping pull-off an amazing brunch after a longgggggg night!

i tried to do a good job of capturing the behind-the-scenes action at the wedding, i’ll be sure to share those too.



just sayin’: another wedding sneak peek

i mean, i know it was my wedding and all, but i love how the pictures are coming out : )

i’m in love with the bow ties we got for the groomsmen. they are coming in from england, mrs. bow tie.


i think the color and velvet texture will be great for the fall. to really jazz the boys up – we are adding a pocket sqaure using the leftover material from my sisters’ dresses – can’t wait to see if it all plays out as well as i see it in my head…



just sayin’: headpiece hell

ok, wedding dilemma! i fell in love with a headpiece – a headpiece that costs as much as rent, a mortgage, some dresses even.

here it is:


and then there is me, finding out (after falling in love with it) that it is $1250.



now, i knew this was crazy, but then i fell into the “but i’ll never be photographered more, you only do this once, etc.” trap. luckily, i snapped out of it, and began the ‘finding a cheaper option’ search.

first up, bhldn:

belt 2


belt 1


i like the idea of wearing a belt on my head. so, i took these two with me to my dressing fitting in atlanta – they are both super reasonable ($200 – $300). with the direction of the queen bee (momma latifi) we landed on the second one.

but then….

belt 3


i found this one at anthro….it’s only $48

so, i decided to go with it and return the other two, but then…..

head piece

i found this one at bhdln. i’m so confused!


just sayin’: where we’re moving

here’s the new place that we are moving into in la. can’t wait to decorate it. other than the red room – i’m pretty happy with the colors. i’d love to do some crazy bright wallpaper in the kitchen….ummm.

we’re the entire front upstairs –  digging that long private balcony.
