Sneak Peak!

Monday, September 19, 2011



I was snooping on my photographers facebook page when I returned from the honeymoon and saw she had posted one of the photos she had taken of me! Oh, I had such a fun day - despite the fact that the rings never quite made it to the ring bearer and our MC had to make a quick run out to our CR-V to fetch them (just in the nick of time!) and Dan missed his barbers appointment, but still looked handsome as always... the little "flubs" made the wedding even more "us" and totally memorable. People were walking by, taking photos, and were so respectful of us holding such a private moment in a public park.


The food was fantastic, though I was so excited and nervous I could hardly eat (you will be happy to know my appetite has come back at full force), our first dance to Aerosmith's "I don't want to miss a thing" was so cheesy I bawled, and my childhood best friend's lady caught the bouquet - I couldn't have been happier. Even my Dad, who hates weddings, had a fabulous time. Dan's mom prepared all of the bouquets, and they turned out more perfect that I could have imagined - pink and purple mums and sweet pea's perfectly arranged, and the boutonnieres were gorgeous! I can't wait to share the pictures...

People really picked up on the handmade touches, which made me so happy. They loved the honey favors and the moustaches were a big hit - totally worth the cramped hand. We held the reception in the legion, because it was inexpensive, large, and right next to the ceremony sight. It was surprisingly nice in there, and once I had the cloths on the tables, my flowers up, and a few bunting-banners, it looked absolutely perfect.


Yesterday I tried to get back into a bit of sewing. I have 1 alteration to do, 1 nightie to sew, then I want to work on Ohhh Lulu's re-launch. I will be hosting a give away in early October on another blog (I am keeping it a secret for the next little while). I really wanted to do a photoshoot at the end of September to prepare for my early October re-launch... but now that September is already half over, I'm not sure how I can do it!

While we were honeymooning I also stopped by a store in North Bay, called The FARM that carries my lingerie. The store was phenomenal - exactly the type of place I have always dreamed of opening. I'm back to work today for 4 days, but I'm really itching to hibernate behind my sewing machine for a week to make up for lost time. I'm planning on bringing back a whole "lumberjack" collection for winter (it's already freezing here, damn Canada!), and more "everyday" items like thongs and jersey panties and bras... along with more ruffles!

  1. What a beautiful photo! You must be so excited to see the rest of your wedding pictures. I remember after my wedding it felt like I was going to the post office every day hoping and praying that our wedding pictures would show up in the mail. Haha!
