“ADULT ONLY” DIY RUSTIC SURF WEDDING (with succulents + surfboards): Randi & Jared Met While Working at a Surf Shop.. | Michelle Sullivan Photography

“So this is how the story goes…

Let’s start with the morning before the wedding. I was totally prepared. The last thing I needed to do was get a mani and pedi with my girls. I went to pick up my fiance’s sister first. She hops in the car and hands me a baby sippy cup, she has one for herself as well. My mind was already mush from all of the wedding planning so I didn’t question it. I start driving to our nail appointment and take a sip from my sippy cup at a red light.

Whataya know!!! It’s a margarita!”

… is how today’s bride, Randi, starts out her wedding story. So yes, I love this girl. Enjoy her wedding because I did to infinity and beyond.

Not Gonna Talk About Kate Middleton’s Boobies. PLUS: TKB News, a Pink + Red + White Wedding by Nessa K, The Best Advice I Ever Got… and life these days.

I know I wrote a lot of words today.  I just feel like I have to say it all.

The way that I’m gonna start this off is by first telling you the way that I am not gonna start it off.  Which is: talking about Kate Middleton’s boobies.  You really think I’m gonna throw that kinda thing in your face on a MONDAY AFTERNOON?  Please- I am not that crass.  I do not hurl nakedness at you on just any day of the week.  I hurl sex stuff at you only on Tuesday through Friday and sometimes Saturday.  Which means I’m waiting until tomorrow to talk about Kate Middleton’s chest being photographed/published/seen by the world entirely without her permission.

VINTAGE WOODLAND WEDDING | Vera Wang Dress, J.Crew Jewels, Generally Amazing. | Duchess and the Rabbit

Second post of the day WHOOO!

You guys.  YOU GUYS.  I am in love with this wedding.  Lisa and Brian’s wedding was a true family affair, and I can’t wait for you to see it/read about it below.  In fact I’d say it’s kind of the dream DIY wedding, if you’re someone who likes working closely with family members for extreme lengths of time in increasingly stressful situations, I mean.  But something tells me this family has no qualms about quality time.  I’m so big on the QT- it’s so f’ing key in our lives.  But so yeah- wanna know what came of all that QT?  Everyone happily chipped in their part in the couple’s  big day, and with stunning results.

For example: her sister handmade their cake AND all the goodies you’ll see on their dessert table.   {Continue reading…}

REAL WEDDING [CRASHER!] + An Amazeballs Day-of-the-Wedding Music Video | One Tree Photography

Ahhhh, the Kristen Stewart Twilight cheating scandal.  What a hugely devastating situation-in-no-way-to-us-personally.  Right, children of Earth?  Shame; Hollywood relationships usually work out so much better.

Well anyway, I think we could all agree we’ve learned one pretty big lesson out of all this.  And that is that Rob’s last name is actually spelled Pattinson – not “Patterson,” as I had previously thought.

PERSONAL POST + SOFT GLAM WEDDING | “Why follow others’ rules when you can make your own.” Vanessa Joy Photography & Rob Adams Films

Happy Tuesday afternoon/evening, faces.  Here’s me sharing something way too personal with you.  Crossing my fingers it’s not totally awkward for everyone involved.

I was sitting in my doctor’s waiting room yesterday, and if it was two hours it felt like two days.  I had asked my Mom to come with me.  She was off yesterday and this was the kind of appointment you want a loved one around for.  Mainly for when you have to walk back out into the waiting room armed with some news, and the only thing that’s different about you is absolutely everything.

WHIMSICAL RUSTIC WEDDING | “The more your wedding reflects you as a couple, the more meaningful it will be to the people who share it with you.” By AE Pictures Inc.

Right from the moment my Pandora station spit out Gotye and then followed it with Ingrid Michaelson’s “Sort Of,” consecutively, I knew it was going to be a good day.

And then I thought to myself, “wow, this Pandora station is positively nailing my taste in music right now!”

And then I thought to myself, “I wonder what station this is!  Lemme see…”

And that’s when I realized I’d been listening to my iTunes playlist THE. WHOLE. TIME.  *mind blown up from stupidity*

Anyways, even though that really happened, I’m still having a great afternoon/evening, and I hope you are, too.  And if you’re not, I hope this wedding I’ve got here cheers ya right up.  And if you need a little extra cheering up, Bambino’s at the end of it all to push you over that cheer edge.  DOUBLE RAINBOW OF CHEER!!  all the way.  So intense.

Happy Monday eveningish, peepsicles!  As I wrap up the writey part of this post, I’m already running a bit late for an event tonight, so I’m slightly freaking out but also trying to stay calm, cool and collected so that I don’t completely lose my s**t.  You see, today is kind of a lot, and I’ve been sitting very still on purpose, so as not to allow my panties to get all in a bunch.  I hear that happens with panties when you get in a tizzy.  Also, I hear *panties* is a much reviled word.  So I’mma stop using it, for that reason, but also because I’m sure today’s bride is absolutely THRILLED that I’ve used the word *panties* a total of what, four times now?  We should probably move on.
