My “Sundae” Wedding Recap

Looking back, everything didn’t go exactly as planned but it was pretty darn close and, in some ways, way better than I expected.

Engagement Photos: The Christmas at Easton Edition!

We already have incredible photos that re-enacted our first date at The Ohio State Fair (taken by Nigel Stratton), but our wedding photo package included engagement photos, so we figured why not do some more? Easton Towncenter is my favorite mall in Columbus and Christmas is my fiance’s favorite time of the year so, we decided Easton Mall would be the perfect place for our pictures!

The Two Thousand Dollar Wedding Next Door

Where did we get this notion that we need to spend a year’s worth of Harvard tuition on a wedding reception? No way!

Happy Movember!

Wedding Stuff: Why Haven’t I Been Preparing??

I knew I wanted to be a “wife”, but never really considered the “bride” thing.

The Wedding Dress Search Is On!

The whole wedding dress search is weird cause I’m a realist and reality is saying “I’ll be in the dress for 5 hours tops” but the so-excited-I-could-do-backflips-around-the-perimeter-of-Columbus is saying “this will be the greatest five hours of your life so far and you better look friggin fabulous for every minute of it!!!” LOL. Alas, the search continues…

He asked my mom for her permission to marry me and I started SCREAMING.
