Last year I touched on an issue that, as it turned out, there were some strong opinions on. Let me give you a quick recap, a la TV show 30 sec bring you up to speed montage. Our wedding was at the very end of August, after dealing with post wedding things, honeymoon, etc, we started to slide into the Holiday Season. My work, at the time, becomes extremely demanding, to put it mildly, around the holidays, so hand writing a billion Thank You's was not really an option, at least not if we wanted to be timely. There in laid our paradox.... Be tardy and send the Thank You Cards after the holidays, OR Combine our Christmas Cards WITH our Thank You Cards.
I cant exactly put my finger on it, but there is just something I adore so very much about this wedding. I first came across Alison Koepke & Tyler Rienas because of their lovely engagement photos. Upon speaking with Andrea of Andrea Ball Photography, I came to know that their wedding had just occurred and it was a keeper, for sure! I simply can not get enough of our bride & groom's style, from the lace dress & gibson tucked hair to Tyler's simple thin suspenders. Opting out of a traditional wedding cake, Alison & Tyler served ever tasty various pies in the freshest of fruits! Perhaps my utmost favorite piece to this bohemian chic wedding is a simple decor element in the form of lace dream catchers, sweetly dancing along the top of the gazebo line. Our clever couple repurposed needle point frames, installing mix matched lace, allowing them to hang & sway in a dream catcher like state framing Alison & Tyler during their ceremony. Ah young love and their creative energies & stylish ways!

Today's couple is too simply too cute! Ann Ahrens & John Teigland met early in life & havent let go of one another for a moment! When the time came to bring their wedding together, Ann, along with a small army of close friends & family rolled up their sleeves & went to task! Essentially every aspect of this wedding has been personally touched, worked on, created & so much more! From the heirloom brooch bouquet to signage, chalkboards galore, fabric bouquets, even the men's gorgeous boutonnieres! This wedding is a DIY'ers dream!

Be it a good thing or not, Pinterest has essentially turned everyone into a Peeping Tom. How so exactly? Consider this. Not only are you able to see the things that people pin, your able to see the names of the boards that they are pinning into. These very names give you clues into what a person likes, doesnt like, thinks is funny, wants to emulate, create something like and so on. Without even realizing it, you've become a cyber peeping tom. Now that I have pointed this out, understand, I LOVE Pinterest & I have zero problem with all this. I only bring it up as there is something I see pretty frequently that I would like to address with my lovely brides-to-be. There is a common board name/theme I see all to often & the gist of it is.... POSE. Aye ye ye... No bueno kids. I am sure your asking yourself why I think this is not good. Let me break it down for you.
