A Few Pictures, A Few Thousands Words

Goodness, y’all! To say we have been busy is an understatement! Between Pinterest projects, weddings, new diets, Sean studying for grad school, and baseball games there hasn’t been a moment where I feel like sitting down to write. Bear with me during my blog hiatus! Here’s a few thousand words via recent pictures 🙂

And Pinterest strikes again! Going clockwise…
*Easter Butter Cake Cupcakes – OMG good!
*Our sweet wedding cards are finally all neatly together
*Our wedding vows that we each wrote to one another
*Who doesn’t love a hydrangea wreath? So Southern!

Introducing… Skinny Bitch the Book of Vegan Swaps! Okay, so I’m not committing to a full vegan lifestyle {yet} however after all my research and new found knowledge of the benefits, it’s can’t hurt to improve my diet. Plus this book is amazingly written and hilarious! So um, no more butter cake cupcakes?!
Clockwise again…
*Mr. and Mrs. Phillips on Easter
*One of my best friends, Rosalie, is getting married and I get to stand up with her!
*My heart still belongs to the Braves but I like the Rays as an American League team
*Beautiful wedding cake of our dear friends, Mr. and Mrs. Davison
Okay yall, that’s it for now … I’ll be back soon!

It’s All in the Details

Details. Details. Details. They were all around on the wedding day and pretty much consumed my life the months leading up to it. What’s a wedding without details anyways? I made everything match our invitations right down to the same design.
Place Cards & Table Numbers
To make things easier on guests, I assigned tables. It would eliminate lost wandering guests loaded down with plates of food searching for open seats.

Menu Cards
I felt menu cards were essential because I’ve been to weddings where I have no idea what is being served. I’m a bit complicated because I’m a vegetarian so I would like to especially know what I am about to eat. Plus, menu cards give the guests strategies on what part of the buffet to hit first!
 Donation Cards
My personal take on favors: please don’t let them be tacky or cliche’. I’m just not a fan of personalized favors with the couple’s name and wedding date. If it’s not edible, charitable, or useful then what really is the point? Spend the money elsewhere. Sean and I decided to go the charitable route and made a donation to my favorite animal organization, Animal Coalition of Tampa, instead of donations.
