Dean and Mike’s Wedding!

Ohmigod vacation was amaaaaziiiing. I wasn’t able to do as much as I’d hoped, but I did lots of sitting around, lots of eating, lots of laughing and I even made a basket. Boom. I still have some finishing work, so I can’t show it off just yet, but I have something far more exciting for you today anyway.

Okay, look at that photo. Is that not the most perfect thing you’ve ever seen? I can’t believe a) I know those people, b) I was there that day, and c) I worked on the dress. Talk about rubbing elbows with the right people, amiright? And of course they are the SWEETEST people. I want to scoop them both up and hug them silly. Remember when I was working on Dean’s incredible, vintage dress? Well here she is wearing it on the big day, looking gorgeous:

Sweet Dean. You have to, have to click through to her blog, My Little Apartment, to see all of the images – it was just the most amazing wedding. Which is why it was ALSO featured on Martha Stewart Weddings. Be sure to pop in over there as well to read about all of the details – there’s a ton of great stuff, especially for you brides out there. And if you want in on the action yourself, Dean does this for other people too. Which, YES. You want that real bad.

Easter Lily Altar Backdrop . . .

Martha, Martha, Martha, you have stolen my heart.  Who wouldn’t want this??  Stunning.

The most awesome backdrop for our ceremony – the perfect combination of 1930′s glamour and handmade beauty.  It freaks me out, I love it so much.  As much as I would love to use fresh lilies (it must smell so insanely good), there are a few things standing between me and a fresh wall of flowers.

  1. Can’t afford 200 Easter Lilies – I mean, seriously, that’s expensive!
  2. Easter Lilies aren’t even available in late June
  3. My goodness my allergies would be insane!

So I decided to order a giant case of artificial Easter Lily bushes and I’m in the process of stripping all of the flowers and leaves from the stems.  Well worth the sore hands – this thing is going to be amazing!  Will let you know how it goes . . .
