When my mom and Aunt T were in town, some of my girlfriends got together to help me with a DIY project for my centerpieces - gold-leafing bud vases. I read about the project in a December issue of Real Simple. Let me be straight with you; there was nothing simple about this project. We got half of the bud vases accented with gold leaf before I decided that it would be nice and add dimension to the reception if only some of the bud vases were accented with gold. . . A very big thank you to my mom, Aunt T, Marisa, Beth, and Adrienne for helping me. The vases look beautiful! Thank you for humoring me. (Also, a big message of love to Adrienne, who brought Georgetown Cupcakes for my Mom and Aunt T to have a tasting!)
Since Sam and I decided to brew beer for our big day, we knew that we couldn't have normal champagne flutes for toasting our marriage and so began the Epic Beer Glass Search of 2010. I looked EVERYWHERE for beer goblets and chalices to personalize. In a day of frustration, my bridesmaid and college roommate, KB, graciously offered to help me with my search. Ask and you shall receive, friends! She is a GENIUS and officially the Queen of Google. Within a matter of hours, KB produced the perfect personalized chalices. The Rachel and Sam chalices arrived a few weeks later as early wedding presents from KB. I am blessed to have such a wonderful friend!
We are very proud to announce that our littlest friend, baby love, and flower girl, Mia (She is all of that and more!) is officially walking! Woot, Meemers!! Now, here's hoping she is ready and willing to show her moves down the aisle in September. No pressure.
Four months to go!!
