Adventures of a (Second Time) Bride-to-Be March 22, 2011

Most of my recent posts have been words…and a lot of them. I hope I haven’t bored you with the process; each wedding has its ups & downs, mine being no exception. And I admit, I’m lazy. Embedding photos into writing takes time & MORE WORDS!
So, now that you know I have a ring, a venue, a dress, lots of shoes…and, of course, my invitation design (with a few details to change), I have decided it’s picture time!
I have a LOT of pictures so far, so instead of trying to have multiple photos in a single blog, I figured I’d make some “storyboards” of the MANY MANY MANY elements I’ve shared with you so far. I am trying to show a bit and hide a bit before the big day…

A wedding is made up of small parts and I like details, details, and more details! Here are some of those for you to see…

when something comes that is more than the sum of the parts.”
