I just applied a snake bite venom removal survival tactic to my keyboard’s face. This is my life. Alison spills coffee on her spacebar, Alison calls upon her experience in reality survival show watching, Alison puts lips to spacebar, and sucks. So I’m sitting here with poppy seeds, what I believe to be a bit of dust, and a wee bit of mocha coffee on the roof of my mouth. So yeah, I don’t know what you’ve heard, but I think I know how to start a Wednesday. #DUH #winning?
Anywhozit, happy afternoon, lovelies!!! I hope you’re doing well, all of you. I have a stellar wedding to share with your face’s eyes today, and I kinda wanna jump right into it, if you’re down. Wait, you’re down? Cool! Yeah, I played the assume game there, but it’s only because I really want you guys to feast your eyes already on what accompanies THIS KIND OF AMAZING ISH:
Isn’t that gorgeous? I’m, like, dying, over it. DYING. And I just love the way high-texture gowns turn out in photos. Also, how amazing photographers like Jen of Jennifer Eileen Photography help them to do that. :)
Here’s the rundown from our beautiful bride, Cayla:
Kevin and I met when I was in high school and he was in college, we were polar opposites – almost seemed like we were too different. Our differences are what made us completely in love with one other. When we got engaged my first thought was, “I don’t want this to be a wedding where I do all the work and the groom has nothing to do with it.” I really wanted Kevin’s input on everything. As far as the colors, we went with orange and pink because they had always been my favorite colors. They made me happy and joyful and Kevin thought they looked great together. Kevin and I wanted to try to make it really non-traditional. We both hate going to weddings and feeling like we have been to the same exact one before. Our goal was for our guests to feel like they were at a party and that they could kick back and relax. We had a photo booth and snacks before we arrived to the reception; to make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Another thing that was important to us was to do a lot of the work ourselves, because we wanted to feel like it was uniquely ours and remember doing the things ourselves. I painted the table numbers and the directional signs and Kevin did all of the intricate details. His dad made all of the signs from old fence posts and they turned out lovely. Although our wedding was a lot of work for both our families and us it was completely worth it. It made it that much more personable and enjoyable. During the wedding, all I could think about was how perfect the weather was and how wonderful everything turned out. I couldn’t have dreamed for a better location, photographer, or husband. Everything about our wedding was uniquely ours.

So, what think you? Excellent execution of vibrant, happy colors, eh? Total potential for out-of-control-ness, but they kept it completely pinned down and beautiful, methinks. You?
By the way, I really love happy weddings. I just- I love ‘em!
xoxo! – Alison
