{via the sweetest occasion}

this here’s a blog for all the fellas.

i’d like to take a little time to shout out to all of our guy friends who have been following this little blog of mine religiously since day one. unfortunately, i’m not fully confident that their intentions were genuine, as they mostly use the material they read to harass steve. (apparently there was one particularly lengthy email chain after my post about votive candles.) but i love and appreciate the support all the same and cannot WAIT to rock the dance floor with them all on saturday.

bridal party intros: bryan

bryan is one of our awesome mary washington friends. although he was a year younger than us at mwc, he was an avid soccer fan and friend to stevie throughout their college years. steve was a groomsman in bryan’s beautiful va beach wedding to his bride, jenn (also a fellow eagle!). the two live down in va beach where jenn is a teacher and, when the boys aren’t fiercely competing in fantasy football or have their phones on speaker as they play each other in madden, bryan is a public accountant. we are so excited to have both bryan and jenn be a part of our big day! as a wedded vet, i’m counting on bryan to make sure steve gets to the altar and that all boys behave (somewhat) appropriately in my absence : )

it’s monday of wedding week and we are mostly feeling good (the bride is slightly under the weather but hoping to bounce back quickly!). there really aren’t too many more projects left to complete and although i didn’t quite attain my goal of planning completion by weekend’s end, i got pretty darn close. we are anxiously awaiting the completion of stevie’s wedding suit and the arrival of the westford ferraiolos (i don’t care that they live in newburyport now)! hope all of our guests are getting ample beauty rest for this weekend’s festivities : )

my dress is done! mama audete outdid herself and it looks incredible. my ensemble actually has a little something in common with the bride above. guesses?

one! week!


i spent the morning of day eight with the wp’s and left our meeting feeling totally organized and like we are in the best possible shape for next saturday. i also chatted with the incredible holly who gave me the very best quote of the day:

she said to me, “miracles are happening.”

that is complete music to a bride’s ears and i instantly got 100 times more excited about our incredible florals (if that was even possible). to celebrate how confident i am with the vision and the capability of our incredible dream team to execute it, i ceremoniously took one last jaunt around the wedding blogs and (gasp!) unsubscribed to about 90% of them – i couldn’t let them all go. my google reader has shrunk significantly but, to be honest, i’m kind of sick of looking at other people’s weddings and reading to experience my OWN.

so a very happy weekend, all!! we are so excited to see and celebrate with you this time next week.
