My first review!

My client from Paths to Our Past wrote an amazing review of me on the Elizabeth Anne Designs site today! She said such wonderful things and I am so grateful for such a stellar review. I've worked with her on a few projects and have had such a good time, so it's awesome to know she feels the same way :) Thanks, Stacey!!

Aqua & Poppy color combo!

Check out this post on Snippet & Ink today-- my favorite colors!! This is exactly what I was going for when I changed the colors of my logo a few months ago. I absolutely love this color combination.

2 years ago today...

I married the love of my life! It's insane to believe that we have been married for 2 years now. TWO YEARS! It's amazing how time flies when you're having fun :) To all of our friends and family who were involved in our special day, we love you guys. You are such important people to us, and I will always cherish our wedding day and your involvement in it.

Johnny, I love you so much and am so incredibly happy I married you :) Thank you for all that you do for me! Here's to many many many more years!

Linzmarie Designs featured on the EAD Library

A few days ago, I heard about the Elizabeth Anne Designs Library and drooled over all the amazing and creative wedding vendors they have listed. After looking through a ton of great links, I wondered what it would take to get my name on their list of stationers. Apparently all I needed to do was ask! I sent them the link to my blog and the next morning I had an email saying my name was on the list! It's so cool to see Linzmarie Designs included in a list of amazingly talented designers. Check out the library for some amazing vendors, ideas and inspiration. Thanks EAD!!!

There I am!

I Heart Vera Wang

If I had the money to buy a Vera Wang wedding gown when I was dress shopping for my wedding, I SOOOO would've bought one. I love her style and think all of her wedding gowns are just too cool. This new gown from her 2009 spring collection is simply TO DIE FOR and is my absolute favorite. It is so simple and elegant, and seems like it would be great for any body type. I love everything about it and just had to share!

Super-cool vintage lace onesie!

Even though I'm not pregnant or planning on being pregnant anytime soon, I love looking at baby clothes. Most of the time I'm thinking of my friends who have babies or are going to have babies, but sometimes I'm thinking of myself and a future kiddo :) However, when I saw this post on Cool Mom Picks about Etsy seller Lou and Lee's vintage lace onesie, I almost fell out of my chair. This would be THE PERFECT gift for my friend D who is due with her baby girl in early September. She loves funky things and I knew this would be so perfect for her baby! I don't know when I'll give it to her, maybe after the baby arrives? Her shower is next weekend but my friend Stacey and I are giving her this awesome baby wrap/sling called the Moby Wrap (in orange, of course). So maybe I'll save this awesome onesie for another time, we'll see. Oh and if you're worried about D reading this and spoiling surprises, don't worry, I've already spilled the beans. I showed her the Etsy post and she asked me how to get her hands on one, and I had to say "Um, well, uh, just don't buy it, ok?!" I'm so bad at keeping fun things like this secret!

I just saw this post at Heaven's Eye Photography blog about Wordle, a website that generates “word clouds” from text that you provide. I entered my blog URL and it came back with the words below... Pretty cool! I'm not surprised that the biggest word (and most commonly used on my blog) is love, or that the word crying is a close second!

Feelin' the love!

What I love most about weddings is when you can FEEL the love between the couple getting married. It's a hard thing to explain, but I think if you've felt it, you know what I'm talking about. This is exactly what we experienced last night at Rachel and Ben's wedding. I think every bridesmaid walking down the aisle cried. The groomsmen were crying. Parents were crying. I was crying. I think John even teared up. But the best moment and strongest feeling of their love was when Rachel walked down the aisle. As she walked, crying, with her parents on either side of her, she looked at Ben and mouthed the words, "I love you." It was the sweetest thing ever... Everyone saw it (I heard several people say "Aww, how sweet!"), but it wasn't meant for everyone to see. Just Ben. It was as if they were the only two people out there, and it was incredible. I am so happy we were able to celebrate their special day and be a part of their love! Check out the pics below, and listen to their song, "The Luckiest" by Bens Fold. Amazing.
