a peek into our lives . . .

I was just sending along some links to a few friends when I came across an entire post devoted to our wedding from our wonderful photographers’ — Sweet Pea Photographyblog. We try to keep our personal details to a minimum on the function key, so in celebration of love and as an early Christmas gift to our fans, we’re giving you an inside look at some of our wedding photos. And all of sudden I’m back in my gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown, relishing the entire day . . .

I was determined to have the perfect day, but ultimately, there are some things you can’t control (my mom got sick the night before the big day and missed the rehearsal dinner, we forgot all of the pre-printed seating cards and ended up running to Michael’s at the last minute and making our own, and the list goes on . . . ). I had a true vision in mind (clean, white and black, and touches of chartreuse and peach) and wanted to incorporate minimalism with nostalgic touches from the past (we had a Polaroid guest book, our DJ spun mostly vinyl, and by request my dad loaned us his 1965 Corvette Sting Ray for the day). I even special ordered Funkin White Peach Puree to create the perfect Bellini cocktail. It was the biggest event I’ve ever planned, and it mostly went off without a hitch — there were a couple of napkin fires during the reception (don’t ask . . .), but otherwise, everything was absolutely perfect.

Without further adieu . . . a peek at our big day.
