I usually read the crowd at a wedding for an indication of how much alcohol would be appropriate to consume. For some of my friends'' weddings, the only form of alcohol present was for the champagne toast. At other weddings, it wouldn''t seem odd to see someone doing a keg stand ;) I really love the...

I am really, really glad I''m not the only person who was morbidly fascinated by the Karen episodes. I wanted to punch her in the face every few seconds, but I could not stop watching.

I totally see what you mean, LP. Indigo and orange look stunning and gorgeous on screen, but it''s hard to strike the right balance of colors in real life. Your wedding dress is beautiful, very organic and naturally graceful. Perhaps you can move toward a more lilac or periwinkle shade of purple/blue?

I love both the bow and the brooch, and I think your dress will look even more amazing once it has been altered to fit your tiny new frame :) Can''t wait to see the final results, and I hope your lost ring is either replaced or found soon.

Last one - a mock up of a monogram I made before we chose our venue. I''m probably going to work with a whole new color palette and style now that we''ve got this beautiful property as inspiration.

The entrance to the courtyard, which we''re considering as the ceremony site. There''s a pretty stone stage setting and plenty room for 100-120 seated guests. The reception pavilion is located to the right of this.

I definitely harbored the same feelings of resentment that you have now, AB.
