Recession Wedding?

I think we may have come to the conclusion that it just is not a great time to throw a wedding right now. I think maybe our 10 year anniversary sounds good, no? It seems irresponsible to be doing a wedding while people are having such a hard time. That and deposits are just a lot more of the overall budget right now than they would have been pre-gas craziness.

My babies will be 7 & 4. They will still be all yummy and cute right? Of course. Cheers!

Dress Inspiration

Lela Rose
So check the beading on this dress. I love it. I think the plan is to recreate this kind of beaded look on a more simple dress. I will be doing the beading myself. In theory. I found some great vintage beads online. Again. In theory. Theory. Maybe more like some vague glimmer of a dream. I usually do my sewing in the same room the kids eat spaghetti and pb&js in.

Etsy Finds - Earrings by Jennifer Rydin

I have sort of fallen in love with Etsy. I Don't know that I will buy anything because a lot of the items are things I can make myself. These earring sort of made me fall in love though. I am considering it. They are designed by Jennifer Rydin and I think they are fabulous. Beautiful vintage beads.

My Photography

I am going to be using some of my own photographs as elements in my wedding. Any ideas besides paper goods? I was even thinking of doing some poster sized (that I would use in my home after) as decorations. We will see.

I just wanted to post some today as a low key post. I love taking photos of nature and I plan to feature details from nature all over.

The Cutest Flower Girl and Ring Bearer

I talked with my daughter and son and they have agreed to be the flower girl and ring bearer. I have to say this is THE best thing about having my wedding after we have been married a while. I really will have my whole family with me, even my children.

Gabriella's Bio:
Born May 28th, 2004. This will put her one month shy of five years old at the wedding.

Likes: Dress up. perfect for the wedding day right? Dancing & gymnastics. some of you have seen her moves at your own weddings. She just can't not not shake her booty. Peanut butter and chocolate. Straight from the jar. Jumpy Things. We are considering renting a moon walk - jumpy thing for the reception to fulfill a need to bounce. Tortillas. Fresh, day old, cold - no problem. She can be found munching corn tortillas for breakfast on a regular basis. It is her Cocoa Puffs. Dinosaurs. Shes just a cool girl.

Dislikes: Hitting. Her brother is whacking her in the head a lot lately. So far she has resisted the urge to wallop him. I expect this time next year I will not be able to say that. Water in her face. Nuff said. The Dog playing ruff and not bending to her will. haha ruff.

Natanael's Bio:
Born February 1st, 2007. This will put him at just over two years old at the wedding. He will have mastered the running amok at that point. He may be tackling Ella going down the aisle. We shall see!

Likes: Running food slathered fingers through his clean hair. Never fails. A nice cold baba on a hot day. he can throw back a bottle with the best of em. Satin blankies. He is a blankie boy it appears. Balls, cars & trucks. It amazes me how soon this starts. Nap time. When the boy is ready he is ready. Dogs. A boy and his dog, age old love story. Helping daddy. or really I could just say daddy.

Dislikes: Sitting still and being quiet. Family movie night is out for a while. The car seat. Not a fan of road trips. Teething.

I am so glad both Ella & Nate will be here to share this with us.
It will make it all the more special having our children as a part of our day.

By the way, they don't come cheap and they are booked far in advance so if you want your children to be your attendants you REALLY need to plan in advance at least 9 months in advance. If you would like to rent mine to avoid that whole thing, we can talk.
