Wedding Week :: The Ceremony

With "All You Need Is Love" crooning in the background, we departed from the altar through floating bubbles as husband and wife. The path to say "I do" was complete with a horse-drawn carriage, DIY touches, and the groom breaking the rules with a stolen kiss during the homily. Read on for the details behind it all!


Wedding Week :: Bride + Groom

"Hi, Honey."

So much build up for the first look, and those words were all I could think of to whisper while tapping Doug's shoulder as he turned around. Somehow, they now seem perfect considering the fact that there are no words to describe seeing your groom for the first time on the day you'll be married. Aside from "I love you" a million times over, all other words seemed superfluous at such a moment. 


Wedding Week :: The Wedding Party

Next up on Wedding Week: All about the ladies and men who made our day beyond special. We were truly surrounded by the best friends and family anyone could ask for, which is a pretty kick-ass way to start your marriage, if you pardon my french. There's really no feeling like marrying the love of your life while those who mean most to you stand by your side. There's also no one better to politely tell the bride that she has food in her teeth or help her go to the bathroom, so for that I give a virtual high five to all my bridesmaids on behalf of being awesome.

{Psst - In case you missed it, here's how I popped the question to my bridesmaids!}


Wedding Week :: Prepping and Primping

Ring the bells! Cue the music! I'm beyond excited for *Wedding Week* on my little internet haven. I received my professional photos from George Street Photo about a month ago, and since then I've been sorting through religiously to pick out my favorites to share. The result is a 5-day celebration on Isn't That Charming in which I'll take you through the primping and prepping, bridal party specifics, the first look, and all the details of the ceremony and reception. Let's get started, shall we?


Practice Makes Perfect

As the saying goes, "Practice makes perfect." Our practice round for the wedding day was filled with laughter, {happy} tears, and trying to walk on grass with heels {Yup, I tripped.} Here's all about it!

Psst - Next week is Wedding Week on Isn't That Charming! I'll be sharing photos + all the details about our wedding day for the first time on the blog. Can't wait!


Swirl It

Remember when I chatted about how my most recent summer fling is with delicious truffles from Godiva? I may have spoken too soon.

You see, last week Godiva {literally} closed down their Chicago store to treat myself and a few other bloggers to a VIP tasting of their Soft Serve and Truffelata shakes. I'm drooling just thinking of the night. It was filled with chocolate covered strawberries, soft serve in cones that tasted better than candy, melt-in-your-mouth truffles, and tastings of shakes in which every sip got better and better.

My favorite Truffelata flavors were a tie between Salted Caramel and Strawberry Creme, although I think Doug would gawk at the fact that I didn't just list Milk Chocolate and Oreo. Let's just say he was in his own version of heaven. Speaking of Doug, this was the first blogger event I've taken him to, and it was a smashing hit! I think it had more to do with the treats we were given, but he even mentioned that he'd like to go to more. He may regret saying that when I drag him to a fashion endeavor, but I'm holding him to it! Nonetheless, it was a fun date night that deliciously married my *summer fling for life* with this summer's newest crush.

Summer Uniform

Retail stores may have racks bustling for fall, but my closet is still very much in summertime mode.
I've perhaps worn the combination of stripes & florals a little too frequently this summer, which was a realization I came to after thumbing through my Instagram feed the other day. I have to say though, I'm putting care to the wind, because I just adore the fun, flirty nature of this look. Being too matchy-matchy can be boring, and who doesn't love an eye-catching outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks over, and over, and over again?

I'm curious, what has been your summer uniform as of lately?  How are you optimizing the last days of summer with your closet?
