Our wedding on Ruffled

Super exciting news today--our wedding (remember how I wouldn't shut up about our wedding preparations like, all summer, and then you never saw all the pictures when it was over?  Sorry....) was featured on Ruffled yesterday!

So you can see all the lovely pics there, although I really should post a bunch of my faves here, too, shouldn't I?  I'm so grateful for my wonderful photographer Becky of Studio 623 Photography for making my vision turn out so beautiful for us to remember for years to come, and I'm so excited to be featured on one of my absolute fave wedding inspiration blogs!!  I LOVE Ruffled.  So much great vintage and DIY inspiration; I was pinning and saving pics from there a ton when I was planning our wedding.

So check out the wedding post here with all my babbling and the gallery with all the 100+ pics here.  And seriously, if you live in the Portland area and are getting married any time soon, check out our photographer. You're reading this blog, so I imagine we have similar tastes in some things, and let me say I am SO happy with what she did with our wedding, and she was so wonderful to work with, I can absolutely recommend her to you!

P.S. In the comments--people are saying nice things about my dress!  If you want to see the whole story of how I made it, you can follow along here (read from the bottom to the top if you want!).


  1. That's awesome! I didn't discover your blog until just after you got married, so I missed seeing all of your dress-making posts as they were coming out, but everything looks lovely. I'll definitely go through some of those archives!

  2. i looked at all your pictures on ruffled. SO CUTE!! I love the one with you two hugging in the field. and with you spinning. sweet.

  3. Everything is super cute, I love it all, looks amazing. But... what really caught my attention was The Loop! We were in Portland for a week at the begining of October and I havne't been able to get Voodoo Doughnuts (or the amazing weather or the lovely people) out of my head since!! At least once a week I look at my husband and tell him I want a doughnut with captin crunch on it! lol

  4. I just found your blog and LOVE IT! We had a DIY wedding as well (minus the bravery of tackling the dresses), and it is so nice to see all the DIY weddings out there...I think they are the perfect reflection of exactly who the couple is. I hope you are having a beautiful and wonderful marriage!
