sharing our magical day xo

i wish i could show you all the amazing photographs from Nov. 26, 2010 when i married my best friend. i have never been so happy to say two words to anyone in my life than saying "i do" to my soul mate in the church i grew up in, in front of our family and closest friends. It was simply magical. God's greatest blessing for my life. 
                    (1st photo by danielle who got to see it first (she is my girl fiance!)  & exactly what i wanted: vintage & audrey hepburn meets carrie bradshaw with a touch of Jackie O // lauren putting on my veil



my Pappa marrying us in my strappy italian j.crew heels and my something blue bracelet from my husband's mom
my beautiful twinkie crying of happiness as she watches my most happiest moment.
my heart

introducing Mr. & Mrs. William Maxham
                                   Paloma's nest "I carry your Heart" ceramic dish, gift from my bestie Marisa // our parent's wedding photographs and custom map from TX to VA by refashioned
we also used these vintage door knobs from Very Fine House to tie down white and clear balloons during the reception (they're special because kate used them at her own beautiful wedding)
blushing bride indeed, i couldn't take my glittery eyes off my husband!
I wrote "love" in different languages on chalkboard pieces - they were set in mix matched vintage vases as the center pieces
my best friend Maria // Lauren // Jessie who you know from "Life" // handsome husband

we did it!!!

i love being your wife. i love having you as my husband. 


thank-you for indulging me lovies and letting me share our most magical day with you. xoxo
