Wedding Dress: Reused

It's pretty hard to believe we are coming up on almost 1 year of marriage here in a month and a half. Time sure flies. As most people saw through the blog (and the wedding) we wanted the big day to be special without being completely wasteful. I had previously mentioned about putting my wedding dress up for sale but just haven't had the heart to part ways with it so soon. Luckily it came in handy for work as we photographed our jewelry for some wedding ads. A second chance to put it to use was worth not putting it up for sale yet!

I just had to share this one.

I love it. Not just because it is a great picture, but because it captured a moment that I couldn't be a part of. I was hiding in the bridal room of the church while the boys were assisting as the church pews filled up. I can only imagine the conversation, but it makes me giddy thinking about it.

We're just hitting our one month mark of wedded bliss and in one sense it seems like just yesterday, while at the same time it feels like ages ago. Either way the whole weekend surrounding the wedding was absolutely perfect. It was so rewarding to see everything I had been planning and picturing in my head for 13 months materialize, and even better, exactly how I wanted them to. It was one hell of a celebration. But the celebration isn't over yet...

If you want to relive a few highlighting moments check out Dig Magazine's article on our wedding!! It talks about our choices for the wedding and how, while weddings aren't exactly 'eco-friendly', we made every effort to be as resourceful as possible. Props to Holly for a wonderful article!

{I love this picture. Thank you Jeff.}

Travis and I headed over to the courthouse today and did the first major step in making this really official: the marriage license. We celebrated with dinner and couldn't help but be in shock as to where the past year has gone, let alone the last three months. It seems like just yesterday we were planting that tree! We're both getting so excited to see everyone... safe travels!

The Second Line

As most of you have now seen from the map included in the invitation, Travis and I plan to "Second Line" from the church to our reception site a few blocks away. If you are like me and not a Louisiana native that term 'second line' probably means little to you. So I did a little research:

"Second line parades are the descendants of the city’s famous jazz funerals and, apart from a casket, mourners and a cemetery visit, they carry many of the same traditions with them as they march down the streets. They range in size, level of organization and traditions, but in all cases they will include a brass band and jubilant dancing in the street. Indeed, the term “second line parade” refers to those who join in the rolling excitement. The people who are part of the hosting organization are the “first line” of the parade (the wedding party!) while those who follow it along, dancing and often singing as they go, form what is known as the “second line.” Second lining can also refer to the type of dancing that usually goes on at these parades – a wild, strutting dance step to carry participants forward in pace with the brass band – so one can go to a second line, be in a second line and do the second line all at once." (

Let's just say our walk to the reception is going to be a party... and you don't want to miss it!
