wedding wednesday : save the dates

That right there's our save the dates. I totally love how they turned out. Luxurious duplexed letterpress on Crane paper tucked into a sleeve sewn out of a beautiful handmade, dyed paper ... and I thiiink Duncan is impressed. He is saying "Totes, the bomb!" And I never say this, but that 'ish is my property, so if you post the images, please link back to me. Thank you, kindly!

weekend recap

Ya'll I had the BEST weekend in Nashville. Had I any emotional or physical energy left on Sunday night, I would have cried myself to sleep because it was over. But, I didn't. Instead, I passed out.
1. The perfect trunk contents. Luggage, bachelorette's gift, cowboy hat.
2. Wonderful gas station treasures.
3. Local Nashville Hefeweizen at lunch on Friday.
4. Broadway Street - so much character

1. Naturally
2. Some of my lovely friends
3. When I got home, it turned out I wasn't the only one who had a few late nights!
4. Post-weekend grocery trip. So many veggies!

Also, I hardly ever post about music, but ya'll (there it is again), we saw the River City Gang, Sam Hayes' band, both nights. He/they rock, literally. If you're into country music, check 'em out!

I mean, c'mon! I can't say any more. Chris is already asking about my country boyfriend ;)

So, you guys. If you're reading this any time after around noon on Friday, I'm probably laying by a pool in Nashville for my friend's bachelorette. ((serious happy dance!))
The happy dance probably looks a little like this. Me 'n' all my frannns might do that together. Fo' realsies.
Also, I finally figured out what it takes me forever to pack.

(Duncan LOVES chevron.) Have a great weekend!

wedding wednesday : drink dispensers

As I mentioned before, I want to create a comfortable vibe at our wedding reception. We want guests to feel compelled to kick off their shoes and make themselves at home... well, as at home as we're allowed to be in an art museum! I thought one nice way to do that would be self-serve water with citrus, tea, etc. in some modern drink dispensers. I don't want it to look country-chic, so we opted for numero 3, whose shape I just love!

It was important that the dispenser be sturdy and have a spot to hang a tag (out goes number 1!) I got three and I'm planning on having one monogrammed if all goes according to plan ;)

P.S. Save the dates next week!
