Cant believe that THE day is almost here! Today we will be at our rehersal and checking into our hotels for the weekend. From all the thoughtful comments, tweets, and personal messages…each & every one of you has touched my heart, and I just wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU for coming along this journey with me & my fiance. Totally not expected , but I felt pretty emotional waking up this morning..maybe its because this wedding planning journey is coming to an end…but as one door closes another door opens, right? The Door of MARRIAGE! The next time I will see you guys here on this blog I will finally be a married woman!!
I will be updating my twitter, instagram, and Facebook thru out the weekend..so make sure to follow me for some live wedding action!!!
I wanted the decor of the wedding be inspired by 2 things- Vintage pieces from the past and Love stories. And since I love all things GOLD…. my planner & florist came up with a brilliant idea! Spray painting vintage love story books in gold!!! I mean way to combine all 3 obsessions of mine together!
In this episode my florist Shawna Yamomoto and I show you guys how to DIY & transform average old books that you already have in your home to vintage inspired peices of art!! We will be using these golden books as one of the main decor elements of the wedding, but they are also great accent pieces to have in your home!!! I’ll surely be taking all of these golden books home with me once the wedding is done! ENJOY!!!
Find some old books that need some lovin’!! They can be books that are just laying around in the house. Some of these books I found for less than 50 cents at a garage sale! SCORE! It’s all about recycling!!!
Make sure to protect yourself with goggles & masks! Spray paint can be VERY VERY strong!!!
I personally love books with a bit of texture & etching!
FYI – the HUGE “Call of The Wind” & “Treasure Island” books are faux books! They look like books but they are actually boxes/container that has the etching of the title!
And heres the final result!!!
Love how they look when they are all lined up & stacked together!
In the previous episode we sat down for my wedding dress consultation, but now comes the fun part- Trying on THE dreses!!!! Join my bridesmaid Sara & I as we take you inside the dressing room for an intimate look into my dress appointment!
The great thing about R-mine bridal is that we get to pick & choose different elements of different dresses to create an amazing & unique dress! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s episode to see the making of my dress of my dreams!!!
First off, I think wedding planing has officially taken a toll on me…I just realized how exhausted & tired I looked in this video! It’s a little over 2 weeks before the wedding, and I think it’s time to lay off on the caffeine & get some good solid rest!!
ANYWAYS in this episode I FINALLY start searching for my wedding dress!!!! My bridesmaid Sara & I went to go visit a bridal boutique in Studio City called R-mine Bridal.
R-mine is known for their collection of classic yet cutting edge gowns that they customize indiidually for their clients…making a gown truly one of a kind! All of R-Mine gowns are handmade in the boutique using the highest quality of silk fabrics, laces and beadings.
We decided to divide the wedding dress episode into 3 parts because theres so much that goes into finding your dream dress! Heres a little peek in some of the dresses that I tried on….. Stay tuned for the tomorrow’s episode where I actually try on these GORGEOUS dresses!!!!
In this episode you get to meet the women that are making my dream wedding into a reality- my planner & florist!!! Join us in this episode as I discuss & pick out the decor & flowers for my wedding with my planner, Jeannie Savage of Details Details, and my florist Shawna Yamamoto. There are just soooo many elements that go into a wedding especially the little details that we tend to overlook- from the china, linen, chairs, silverware, etc. Hope you guys enjoy this episode, and please help me out pick out the finishing touches for my wedding by leaving a comment below!!
As you girls know by now I love ALL things GOLD! Since most of the colors in the wedding will be soft & muted I wanted to accent the wedding in gold.
I love all 3 of the tableware above, which one do you think I should go with???
A beautiful wedding comes down to the smallest details such as the silverware. Again, I wanted to accent all the decor in gold even the silverware!! Do you guys like the gold vintage or classic silverware??
Let me know in the comments below which table tableware you think I should go with and which silverware that would go with that best!!!
Thanks for helping me out & being a part of this process!!!
Wanted to get the full engagement session post up by today, but here’s a little peek into the shoot as I continue to sort thru the hundreds of amazing images from Jana Williams photography + Firefly Events!
There’s something incredibly beautiful & romantic about black & white photos.
Cant wait to share with you guys the rest tomorrow!!
