Real Bride Kelly Wedding Video and Feature

Ohmigoodness, I hope all you/your moms had such an awesome day yesterday. My first Mothers’ Day was nothing short of magical – I slept until 8am, had a cocktail with waffles at home, had a cocktail with my egg sandwich at lunch, took a nap in the car while everyone went and bought me chips, drove up to a secret beach with my family and also received this amazing thing:

Heart. Broken. I had no idea that day could feel so incredible. Everyone be nice to your moms!

I am SO excited to share this post with you guys today – finally – I only promised to write about it forever ago, right? But I haven’t stopped thinking about how much I wanted to get this gorgeous stuff in front of you. Basically, this post has become my great white whale. Who am I kidding? Filing my nails, returning phone calls and making the bed are all becoming unattainable life goals these days. But when I do get to them, I feel like I’m wearing shoulder pads and tennis shoes with my skirt suit, and I am GETTIN’ IT DONE.

So. Onto the good stuff!

You guys remember Kelly, the wispy little stunner in her blush wedding gown last year. I mean, that girl is a looker. Well, someone else thought so too, because they put her on the COVER of their MAGAZINE.

The Refinery magazine _ spring 2014

Holy. Smokes. The Refinery mag, a Canadian publication, has come stateside and sweet Kelly and her husband David are featured in their inaugural issue along with oodles of jaw-dropping images by T&S Hughes Photography. So amazing. You must click through and see this stuff.

And … it gets so much better. Emily Hard, the same incredible woman who filmed my little interview for Glossed + Found magazine (where she is the Producer and Editor), ALSO filmed their wedding video. And OH.MY.GOD.

TEARS. I mean it. This video will make you want to hug everyone you love – it perfectly captures what is so exciting and touching about weddings. And obviously this particular wedding was extraordinary. Everyone should watch this video. Really. And then everyone planning a wedding should stop what you’re doing and call Emily IMMEDIATELY. I swear, I want her to come over and just film my little family, because everything she does is so sweet.

And the icing on the cake is seeing Kelly twirl around in that blush confection of a gown.

psst … Kelly is also an illustrator and painter and shares some of her work on her blog here. This woman could not get more adorable, I swear.

Real Wedding: Kelly and David

Holy. Smokes. The 2014 bridal season has BEGUN. After taking maternity leave last year, followed a holiday break, I’m super lucky that as soon as I was ready to get back to work, the work was ready to start flowing. And I am so super excited about the projects I’ve got lined up! They are so good, you guys. By the way, I’m able to accept more custom orders than usual this year, so there are still available slots. If you know you want custom, call me right away, please! I’ve still got openings, but my schedule is practically booked solid with consultations. So … act now!

Speaking of custom, I’ve got some amazing pictures to show you of my beautiful bride Kelly and her super cute husband David on their wedding day. They are both so completely adorable, and Kelly is a serious knockout in her blush lace and tulle gown. Just look at these two:

Ohmigod I TOLD YOU. So completely sweet and adorable in every possible way. I had a really hard time narrowing down the images by T&S Hughes Photography to share here, because they are all so lovely and Kelly looks so happy. Lucky for us there are a bunch more on the photographers’ blog here. You must go check them out. Not only are they great wedding photos, but Kelly designed such a beautiful wedding – the color palette alone is so gorgeous (now that I think of it, all of my brides last year had really amazing-looking weddings – I always say I’m so lucky, and I totally mean it). Anyway, it’s always so exciting when a bride comes in and I just instantly know exactly what she’s imagining. That totally happened with Kelly – right down to the veil. I just knew. You know? And not only did I get to design this pretty gown, but I got to spend time with this incredibly sweet woman (and her super sweet mom). Like I said – I’m so lucky.
