    Our Second Anniversary

    Today is our two year anniversary. 17,520 hours. 730 days. As I sit here in our townhome near Seattle, I read back over my thoughts from last year’s anniversary and I am laughing just a little bit. At this time last year, we had just bought our first house and we were settling in… or […]

  • Changing Your Name After Marriage & Why I’m Taking His Name [Newlywed 101]

    Changing Your Name After Marriage & Why I’m Taking His Name [Newlywed 101]

    When we had the wedding and all related festivities, some people asked me if I was changing my name. For me, it wasn’t much of a question. I considered my options, and chose what fit best for me. Brighton didn’t care one way or another, and let me choose for myself. In addition, I’ve read […]

  • Decor & Details [Wedding]

    Decor & Details [Wedding]

    Details of a wedding are very important to set the tone of the big day! We wanted our garden wedding to be casual, yet fun and relaxed with rustic tendencies. Since we chose to have the wedding in Florida, and I couldn’t have mountains as my backdrop, I desperately wanted something “nature-ish” as our venue. […]

    Bachelorette Weekend in Savannah, Georgia [Wedding]

    I had been looking forward to having my bachelorette weekend for quite some time. I rarely get uninterrupted/rushed time with my closest friends in Florida, and never together at the same time! Originally we looked at going to Key West, but it was still Spring Break for many colleges and schools, and we didn’t want […]

    Salt Lake City Bridal Shower [Wedding]

    Last weekend, my future mother in law and sister in law threw me a bridal shower to celebrate with my SLC friends and almost-family. It was hosted at my sister in law’s gorgeous new house. It’s something you’d see in a home magazine, seriously. Anyways, it was somewhat last minute, so we gathered all the […]

  • What Getting Married Means to Me [Wedding]

    What Getting Married Means to Me [Wedding]

    As I am only three weeks away from getting married, I am reflecting on what marriage really means to me. When I first announced that I was getting married to my friends and family, they were a mixed of shocked and excited. Obviously, they were excited because I have found someone that I want to […]

    34 Days and Counting… Wednesday marks the official 1 month out countdown until our wedding! Some part of me is stressed about getting everything done. The other part of me is feeling like the end is in sight, and I am ready. Last time I checked in about wedding stuff was about a month ago. […]

  • Creating Our Wedding Website [Wedding]

    Creating Our Wedding Website [Wedding]

    For the wedding website, I wanted to do a one-page, easy to navigate and scroll right through to what you needed to know for the wedding. This means that this is it, there are no additional pages. These types of layouts are quite popular currently. I created the site with WordPress, using a theme called […]
