Wedding Fever

JorDan Wedding - Stan and I

JorDan Wedding - Stan and I

These last few months have been a little crazy for Stan and I because we were in back-to-back weddings! I’ve shared a few peeks leading up to Jordan’s wedding (my bridesmaid dress, the wedding shower) which took place on August 31st and Stan was a groomsman in his friend Paul’s wedding on September 7th. Here are some snapshots from the two events:

Regi + Paul Wedding - crab!

We spent last weekend in New Hampshire for Paul and Regina’s wedding. On our way to lunch after the rehearsal, we were almost eaten by a giant blue crab!! (Oh and, that’s another eShakti dress. I love it!)

Regi + Paul Wedding - Stan and Regi dance

At the reception on Sunday, Anton (one of Stan’s fellow groomsmen) teamed up with the bride (Regi) to troll Stan. They asked the DJ to play a Nickelback song (he hates Nickelback), and Regi asked him to dance with her. You can’t say no to the bride!

Regi + Paul Wedding - dancing

Nick (another groomsman) and I got on the floor along with the groom and his mother-in-law to ease Stan’s pain. He was a good sport about it though. ♥

Regi + Paul Wedding - Newlyweds + Stan and I

Left to right: Stan, Paul, Regi, and I. She looks just like a princess!

Both events were lots of fun, but we’re a little wedding’d out. We do clean up nice though, eh? ;)

Inspired by love: 3 printable romantic quotes for Valentine’s Day

There is so much snow outside today! All I want to do is cuddle with Stan on the couch and watch romantic movies all day. But I can’t do that, so instead I designed some printable quotes from three of my favorites: A Knight’s Tale, Love Actually, and Moulin Rouge!. Please note that these are high-res files and may take a few minutes to download, depending on your Internet connection speed.

This is said, sung, and shouted a few times during the film, by Toulouse and Christian. The quote is originally attributed to George Alexander Aberle or “eden ahbez” in his song, “Nature Boy,” which is covered by David Bowie and Massive Attack on the soundtrack. Download the 8.5 x 11 print here.
