Handmade Wedding: Every Superhero Needs a Sidekick

One of the first decisions we made regarding the wedding was that we wanted my brother, Ben, to officiate. He has officiated weddings in Kansas, and we just knew he would best represent us at our wedding. He didn't disappoint. He set the tone from the first words out of his mouth... http://youtu.be/hZUcXSqYw2o Ben brought [...]

Handmade Wedding: The Ring Bearer

We had the best little ring bearer in the world, and he'd likely tell you exactly that. Cooper is my nephew, and it was never even really a discussion that he would have that role in the wedding. When he arrived in Boston with Daddy, he ran into my apartment jumped into my arms and [...]

Handmade Wedding: The Dress Part II

Dress Part I describes the journey we took to choosing a dress and fabric. Now Mom had to get to serious work. She had less than six months to make my dress, and she was going to see me twice before the wedding. We had to maximize every opportunity. Good thing my mother is not [...]

Handmade Wedding: Wedding and Reception Stationary Part II

I had planned to post about all of the wedding stationary in one post, but there was just so much! So, I decided to break it down into two posts, which will now likely be more like three posts. Part I described the save-the-date cards and invitations. When we began to put together the wedding [...]

Handmade Wedding: The Dress Part I

Once upon a time there was an expectant Mama who had made her own wedding dress, as well as the dresses for all of her bridesmaids, about three years prior to the birth of her first child. She had some fabric leftover, and on the off-chance that the little one growing inside was a girl, [...]

Handmade Wedding: Wedding and Reception Stationary Part I

Nothing sets the tone for a wedding quite like the suite of stationary that guests receive prior to the wedding and throughout the event. When we approached the design of our save-the-date cards, invitations, programs, and menus, we decided to have some fun. It was to be an elegant Bruce Wayne affair, but everyone would [...]

Handmade Wedding: Finding Wayne Manor

You may remember the struggles to find a date for our wedding, which resulted in discovering National Superhero Day and being completely unable to even consider getting married any other day. The next task was finding Wayne Manor. Before we were even engaged, I had shown Ashley (my sister-in-law and event producer guru of Red [...]

Handmade Wedding: Getting Started

Our relationship's superhero roots began at our very first coffee meeting--Lloyd showed me the Lloyd as Batman drawing that was his Facebook profile picture, and I showed him a picture of me dressed up as Ladybug Girl on Character Day during spirit week at school. As time went on, Lloyd drew us together as Batman [...]
