yum. yum. yum. i can't wait!! it is going to be so beautiful and so you! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the homage to Steel Magnolias!! I just watched it and thought of you the whole time. I also just watched The Great Gatsby in your honor- for the very first time! Can you believe it? It was so great, I watched it on a cold but sunny afternoon in my living room and I laid right in the sunlight so I could pretend like it was summer time again.
miss you. see you soon.
xoxo

I am watching 3 dresses for the special day on ebay and all three are blush and bashful in honor of you. Hopefully one of them doesn't skyrocket out of my range!

terra said...

ahhh love is great
not that i'd know
i've just heard good things about it

all those pictures made me so happy/nostalgic (which is weird cause i've never done anything wedding-related before)
i guess the florals and frills and stuff reminds me of things

i'm rambling;
just discovered your blog, tis pretty cool how a sequence of photos can put together all you want to say ;)
