Keep Calm and Marry On!

With just 38 days to go until our big day, the house has been buzzing with activity. I officially leave Seattle for good (!!) in a week (-> Honolulu -> Spain -> North Carolina) so this means packing, planning, saying goodbye, partying, camping, drinking, hanging with as many friends as possible, floating down Yakima River, standup paddleboarding, dating (won't see B for three weeks!), cleaning, prepping, DIYing. There's a LOT going on.

But hey, I'm up for it and I have nothing better to do! I ♥ my life right now! It's so fun!

I didn't really mention this, but our joint bachelor/ette parties in Vegas was absolutely amazing! Brett and I feel truly blessed to have such radical friends. AND I have a ton of cute new undies! LOL! Thank you again, friends! You guys are the bestest! ♥

I've decided, since I have so many weddings to share, that I will group them accordingly: "colorful/creative" and "classic pretty." But first, check out this table game:

Isn't it cute? And, just so we're clear, I totally gave the FiancĂ© butterflies on our first date. Me? Cool as a cucumber. Speaking of, is it fair to celebrate first date + official bf/gf status + wedding anniversaries? Three anniversaries a year... sounds about right, don't it? LOL.

Okay, the first wedding is a super-hero themed one, and it is fantastic!

Oh my gosh. Can we talk about this one please? It's like all an awesome childhood bomb exploded in the room! Lite Brite + Pez + cereal? Hello! So good. And the ring bearer and flower girl are beyond cute. I LOVE this wedding!!

Here's a few from one that was inspired by one of my favorite movies, Amelie.

And finally, a colorful Kentucky wedding:

The umbrella decor with the twinkle lights and the thumbprint guest book? Ah! So lovely. :)

Now we get to the three classic pretty weddings. All of them feature brides that blew me away style-wise. Check out the amazing gowns! The first one is so gorgeous with the backdrop and the decor that at first I assumed it was a bridal shoot for a magazine!

Isn't it amazing! My goodness she is so beautiful and her style is so unique, I am a big fan of this one!

The next one is a New York elopement and if there's anything I love, it's New York and elopements! How romantical! And check out her dress!!! It deserves three exclamation points!!!

Isn't it breathtaking? So beautiful! And I love the very New York atmosphere, in Central Park, with the skyline as a backdrop. Awesome.

Last but not least, a sweet garden wedding.

Saw this Kiehl's Father's Day ad and thought, "This is the cutest picture ever!" So I wanted to share it with you. I can't wait til Brett gets to put on his Daddy pants. :)
