How amazing has this year been? 2010 really was quite the year for me. I started this blog as a recent engagee looking for a place to express everything wedding and everything me. I am pretty sure I have accomplished that, wouldn't you say? I've had the chance to meet so many amazing people, and I have been able to be part of many great groups and movements all on account of making the wedding world that much better.
January was just the beginning. My first ever post was this darling DIY Treat by Once Like a Spark.
Followed by the ever popular post, 30 years ago. One that I truly love and one that I feel touches on the essence of why this blog exists.
The most amazing collection came from Vera Wang in which my obsession grew to new heights.
The engagement party was an amazing success with some of the best food of all time, best company of all time. Plus I totally LOVED my dress!
We were in the thick of planning Lizzie's Wedding, here were a few photos of her bridal shower. My cousin Cooper actually did an amazing job with the photography. We had a totally fun little shoot in the middle of the street!
Parisian Love. I love macaroons, although after 2 attempts I will say that I hate making these little treats.
These Engagement Shoot prop ideas were just glorious. Can't wait to do mine!
Now for the most viewed post in the blogs history. This one post gets over 1,000 reads a week still to this day! Dessert Love.
We ended off the glorious first half of the month with an incredible feature of Lizzie's wedding on Style Me Pretty!
After literally going through hell on my search for a wedding venue, I was finally able to find the absolutely perfect spot. Holman Ranch is such an amazing space and I can't wait for the day when I'm up there celebrating my very own day.
Next up we launched our very own vendor guide! The Inspired List started as a small site and in the past few months has grown to over 400 vendors and is increasing traffic by the day!
Joseph West Photography, one of my all time faves, shared this glorious engagement shoot with us!
After all your amazing advice, I chose my wedding bands. I love that I can post anything here and all of you will help me make decisions. :)
My bridesmaid inspiration is finally becoming a reality! We chose the dresses and all the accessories and the girls are getting ready and set to look their best for the wedding.
Finally, a few of us got together and decided to create a variety of fabric flowers, make them the bridesmaid bouquets, and then sell them to donate the money for charity! We have about 10 helps and we could use you too. :) Find out more!
My wedding looms in the near future and with less than 3 months, it is safe to say I am freaking out. It'll all be under control though. For some reason I love saving things to the end.
Thanks to everyone for reading this and for all the major support. I definitely go through my ups and downs, indecisions, and successes and failures and you are there each and every time to inspire me!
Double a million thanks to my wonderfully amazing wedding vendors. Without any of them this wedding would definitely not be the same. Some have become so close that I now couldn't imagine my wedding without them being there. I'm so excited for the group of people working together to create this amazing day and I can't wait to see you all on April 8, 2011.
