Pinterest might be my favorite website ever. Lately, it’s gotten a little bogged down with, let’s just say, non-designerly pins :P Not that I’m a snob or I think that they should still be an invite-only site — although, those were the days weren’t they? — but let’s be real, it’s the truth. Either way, Pinterest is still so useful and I love it. Here’s a snapshot of my boards this week.
Have you heard about Alt Conference coming to San Francisco in July? This could not be more perfect timing! I’ve been wanting to make the trip to Alt for the past few years, but haven’t been able to make it work. Since we’ll be moving to SF in June, I’ll have no excuse not to go. I can’t wait to register :)
One thing that Jake and I both put at the top of our wedding priorities list was party pics. We love the editorial style that Miss Abbey Moore is so very good at, obviously, and wanted to capture our family and friends having a blast on our big day. I literally couldn’t have art directed this “photo shoot” any better than how it turned out. Abbey, you are the love of my life. Please follow me around forever. Thanks :)

This is the infamous, ABBEY MOORE, photographer extraordinaire!
Q: Is Abbey a.) adorable b.) a genius c.) super cool or d.) all of the above?
A: d., duh. I love her.
My wedding day was the best day ever. Every bride must say that, but our wedding day really was amazing. It was entirely us, from the tiny ceremony, to the huge pink balloons, and the 90s pop music that blared out of the speakers. The day could not have been better. It might not have been everyone’s idea of a perfect wedding, but it definitely was ours.
As a woman, I had a few priorities surrounding the wedding — the dress, the venue — but as a designer, I had more than just priorities. I had a laundry list of goodies to create. Everyone offered to help, which is amazing I know, but I couldn’t delegate design tasks to anyone but myself. And as each project was ticked off the list, I felt more and more like our wedding would really feel like us. I’m so happy with how everything turned out and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you!
This news has been a long time coming…I mentioned last year that the hubs and I were thinking about a big move to the west coast, and we are finally making it happen!
At the end of June I will be packing up my midwest life, along with my midwest cats, to trek across the country and set up shop in San Francisco. No more snow bun or snow-anything for this girl! It’s going to be an adventure road trip to the most inspiring city I’ve ever been to. We can’t wait to see what California has in store for us and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! The first step in this process, though it may not seem like it, is finally showing you photos of our wedding — a day that marks the beginning of our adventure together.
Stay tuned, folks!
Since we got back from the holidays, I have done nothing but celebrate my laziness. I am so ready to get motivated and start working on projects, ready myself for the big move this summer and most importantly, stop being such a lump. It’s time to wake up, already!
