Lots has happened. The biggest thing of course being that Cori and I got married one year ago today! It seems like ages ago that we got engaged. I have posted a couple times about our crazy 1940s/vintage themed wedding. There are lots of photos in this post. I even wrote, what I hope is a helpful post, about planning and budgeting for a vintage wedding here. You can read about how I made my wedding dresses (one for the ceremony and a second for the reception) in this post.
And if planning a wedding wasn't stressful enough, we bought and moved into our new house two weeks before the wedding! A note to all the current brides-to-be out there. Don't by a house at the same time you are planning your wedding, it's sooooo much extra stress! hahaha! We still have not gone on an official honeymoon, buying a house kind of pushed that to the back burner financially, but we hope to take a long trip sometime in the early spring. Perhaps back to the UK? We'll have to see....
But now that we own a house I have my own sewing room! And I have pretty gardens and an awesome porch to use for pictures.

I will admit, there were several things about planning our wedding that were really fun. (Like planning our reception decor and searching for vintage tea cups to use as favors.) Others tasks I found stressful and a bit annoying. (Searching for a wedding dress was one of them! Ugh! I actually had a lady a one shop tell my mom that if we cut back on food I could buy a more expensive wedding dress!! No lie, true story!!)
Looking back on the whole experience are there things I wish we had done differently? Sure! But there were no major disasters and with the exception of a very few, very small things, everything went according to plan! Can't beat that! It was a great day with family and friends at a beautiful location. And people are still talking about our wedding, in a good way of course! ;)
