anna's german wedding.

Posted on January 08, 2013 by mckay | 0 Comments

new year, new blogging goals. actively setting aside a little time each week to work on new posts that feature my absolute favorites : the lovely brides I have the honor of working with on their wedding day. hooray!
anna was the first bride I've worked with in germany (awesome) and was such a pleasure: kind & patient even when her bag got lost in the mail somewhere in europe.  thankfully there was enough time to whip up another and ship it out before the big day. funny story- the original bag found its way back to me 2 months later. :)
she was sweet enough to share a few photos and they are amazing.  her dress? his suit? the setting??? it looks like such a fun, family filled day. so glad I can pass along some of the prettiness to you all.
seriously? I die.
  
danke, anna!!

happy october everyone! as promised, I'm finally getting some of the awesome weddings up on the blog that my sweet readers have sent in.  first up, jordana's napa valley affair.  isn't she beautiful??? 
 
ps- I'm obsessed with her dress!!

 a bride after my own heart, she was all about the diy details. so here's a little from jordana herself: 


We were married on October 1st, 2011, in Napa Valley, CA at the Historic Napa Valley Country Club. Though the location had everything we needed, I insisted on a DIY wedding...staying up into the wee hours the week before the big day, finishing the guest's name cards by hand, finalizing my vows and creating photo booth signs.


With my handmade Oatmeal Lace clutches, giving bridesmaid's gifts was really easy (and unique). My dad made each girl her own one-of-a-kind pair of earrings to wear with their yellow dresses, and I bought a gray lace or white polka dot scarf for each girl. I wrapped the earring boxes in yellow and white polka dot paper (from Paper Source) and placed all the contents neatly into the bags. Presenting the gifts at our rehearsal dinner inside the clutches brought everything come together - and made each girl feel so special.


a dad who handmakes jewelry? LOVE!


 thank you so much for sharing some of your wedding day with me, jordana. hope married life is treating you wonderfully and happy first anniversary! :)

xx- mckay
