the photo they used was from our engagement photo session. the entire set is here.


the BridalBook site.

the R.A.W. ad — first comes the R.A.W. logo,

then the frame flips to a wedding photo,

then it flips to ours!

the adventure begins

i’ve never really had a dream wedding. other girls had their weddings planned in their heads down to the minute crease of the table napkin, but when alvin and i got engaged and people started asking me about wedding motifs, the most i could come up with was ‘fun.’

six months into the engagement and i was frantically googling wedding sites for inspiration. and *then* the problem became how to edit all the inspiration i got; i saw and wanted to incorporate so many beautiful, beautiful things! never mind that they didn’t really go together.

with the help of amazing family and friends, and after seemingly endless months of falling in and out of love with various decor elements, of sourcing anywhere and everywhere for every little thing, of obsessing over ten million DIY projects, and of fearing imminent nervous breakdowns every other week, i think alvin and i did fine. 😀
