I’m feeling a little bit sentimental today as it’s the 3 month anniversary of our wedding. Tim and I just watched the video together and I thought it would be fun to share today. Our wedding photographers (Love Is A Big Deal) also do video and I can’t stress what a great job I think they did. I almost opted not to do this, and it’s actually the number one thing I’m glad I paid for for my wedding. For anyone out there planning a wedding – seriously even if you have to cut something else out in order to have a video, do it! I love it even more than my photos (and I’m obsessed with my photos!) because there’s just something about the movement that captures the day and the place so well.
Since May was filled with my best friend’s wedding, my honeymoon, and moving, I kind of slacked off on posting my playlist. Therefore I’m combining May and June’s at the request of my friend Tammy who might be the only person who cares about my playlist post – haha Worthy enough reason for me! Here ya go!
ICYMI: I got married on March 25th.
(Is everyone done with it yet?)
NO WORRIES TONS MORE POSTS TO COME! haha
I wanted to share what I wore to several of my most important wedding events. I agonized over these wardrobe choices, sent an annoying number of snapchats to my close friends, and spent way too much time shopping for these looks. If you have something important coming up, maybe this will help you narrow down your search.
I put a lot of pressure on myself with what I was wearing in these photos. These pics last forever and I wanted to represent myself accurately. Luckily, my photographers (Love Is A Big Deal) are amazing and let me do a wardrobe change so I could have two completely different looks. Meg and Josh are a husband wife photo/video duo and are also the perfect mix of calming and hysterical. Any photo you see us dying laughing in is a genuine reaction to something they said and I have very few photos that have captured mine or Tim’s genuine smile. They killed it, I love these images so much!My friend Chelsea found this whole look for me and it’s everything I love – green, off the shoulder, cool earrings. Loved it! Awkward and uncoordinated much!? lol Photos by Love Is A Big Deal
I wasn’t even looking for something else to wear, but came across this dress in a surprising location aka a store I never shop in when I was picking something up for Tim. You’ll probably see a million more pictures of me in this dress over time because I love it so much.
I already had an outfit locked down for this brunch when I came across this fab skirt at UAL for $32. Bridal, beachy, chic, done. I couldn’t have been more excited to wear this. I’ve had the top forever from Muse. (Two of my favorite Nashville spots for my locals or those visiting)
I kept my makeup pretty much the same all wedding weekend. I did a similar look the weekend I won the Miss Tennessee USA pageant and so I felt like it was good luck. haha It must have worked because the whole wedding weekend went off without a hitch! SELFIE TIP: always take your selfie with natural light coming at you and a darker background – it hides a myriad of imperfections. This selfie was taken before I put on mascara, so don’t forget to do that!| Eyeshadows: pink, brown, dark brown, highlight | Eyeliner | Lipliner in “Posy Perfect” | Lipstick in “Medium Rare” | Blush | Foundation (It’s technically a concealer, but it’s thin and build able and I love it as a a foundation) | Powder | Brow Powder | Primer | Setting Spray | Contour Powder |
My friend Chelsea also scouted this dress for me. I usually have a really hard time wearing strapless because I have a more full bust, but this dress offers plenty of room and stretch. I thought this dress had a really flattering fit and was comfortable too. I like the flare it has but I also think I won’t hate it when I look at photos a few years down the road. I don’t think photos fully do it justice, but I got tons of compliments on it, I don’t think you’ll go wrong having this beauty in your closet. (I’m in between a 4 and 6 and a M fit me perfectly.)
This month’s playlist was curated as I was traveling in California and Arizona for work and prepping for my wedding. For that reason it’s a little shorter than usual, but it’s got some good ones. My standout tracks are the dreamlike tune “Livewire” by Oh Wonder and the catchy upbeat “Old School” by Urban Cone. I’m also an Ed Sheeran fangirl – I was so excited when he released “+” and “Dive” is my favorite track. Whatcha listening to right now?
