9/8/12
the past 5 days have been a whirlwind, to say that least. and to be honest, i really wanted to hold off on posting any photos, out of respect to clary, our photographer, but i want to put my feelings down on paper while they’re still fresh.
saturday was, obviously, the best day of my life. but i still feel so weird about all the happenings. i have a “husband” now? this man, who i can barely get used to calling my “fiance” is now my “husband”? weird. all the vows i worked so hard constructing? i just said them (without crying, mind you) and now we’re legally bound? the whole day flew by in the blink of an eye…i expected that, but it almost made me sad when night fell.
i found myself incredibly calm, strong and serene on saturday. more so than i expected. turns out, when times get tough, i get tougher. seeing josh during our first look was the single greatest moment of my life. he/we, were so connected and raw. it was powerful. but while i found him getting more emotional than i’ve ever seen him, i found myself more rock solid than ever. same when being walking down the aisle by my two dads…dean got teary (i didn’t see him, i HEARD him) and i couldn’t help but smile and feel proud of myself. proud that i stuck to my guns and refused to let anyone tell me i shouldn’t have both my dad’s walk me down the aisle.
it’s not to say we didn’t have any hiccups…we did. our wedding singer fell ill to the flu, so there was frantic scrambling on friday. oh and did you know we’re under a serious helium shortage? i’m so tired of talking about this earth’s lack of helium. oh and i’m also tired of talking about family members who refuse to be selfless or supportive. we’re so done with that.
but here i sit, 5 days later, with a husband…a man who loves me and is more excited to be married to me than i ever thought possible…a new last name and further proof that we have a backbone of friends and family who love and support us more than i ever thought possible.
high fives to all.
and if your curious:
my look– dress: watters//shoes: jimmy choo//hair piece: bhldn//earrings: kate spade
josh’s look– suit: bonobos//tie: drake’s, london//shoes: florsheim//socks: jcrew

I think Mrs. Premuda just called me soft…for the record, I didn’t go into full-on blubber mode as I thought I would have.
FWIW, my socks were Zara and my shirt was custom from A Tailored Suit.

::our invitations::
most of you know that i’m a photographer, by passion, but by day i’m a graphic designer. so when it came time for our invitations, obviously i designed them. so many people said to me, “you probably knew for years what you wanted your invites to look like.” not true, actually. my tastes are constantly changing, as are trends (had i designed them 10 years ago i would have used velum. gag.). i really always wanted something letterpressed, but when i found out the price was nearly that of a new car, i scratched it.
then one day at work, someone in production received a sample book of wood veneer. “how cool…but how the hell do you print on it?” to make a long story short, it turns out that wood veneer, while easy to get (i got mine here), is quite hard to print on at my budget and small print run. low and behold i finally discovered that a local printer had just installed a brand new digital press that, fingers crossed, ran my veneer beautifully!
once i knew the veneer would work, it kind of dictated my design. i knew i really wanted something simple, i wanted our wedding “branded” and i wanted to use my favorite font. the result is so beautiful, is perfect for our theme and has rendered many comments ranging from “these are GORGEOUS” to “i’m going to use it as kindling.” not funny, pete.
updated to add: yes, v, it’s neutra. :)
