Wedding: Getting Ready!

I am beyond excited to finally share our wedding photos. Yes, I have given glimpses of the design aspects, but here is the first chapter of the moments captured by J.Rau Photography. Every time I look at these photos a huge smile always falls across my face. This was truly the happiest day of my entire life. To have been surrounded by all my family and friends I love oh so dearly, and to walk down the aisle and say I DO to the man of my dreams.

I am getting Married! I kept thinking the entire day. My sister, maid of honor was besides herself the night before as we stayed at the St Paul Hotel. After counting sheep, and not being able to fall asleep, Jen sat up and started talking to me in the big sister calming manner no one can do except her. She instantly put me at ease, I was just SO excited to get married to Nick and could not fall sleep. I was never one bit nervous, I was just excited for Nick to see me in my dress, give him the official kiss, celebrate with our family and friends, and live happily ever after! It was going to be a party, and it for sure was a night to remember!

I love the bottom right photo. Me always fanning my face to hide the tears on the horizon while my mom tilts her head back in a laughing manner to keep the sweet tears inside.

Wedding Flowers in the…Growing

This past weekend I decided I needed to get my little succulents out on the porch for the prime growing season! After getting engaged last year, I quickly started accumulating little succulent plants. It all started when my fiance and I were on our Sunday night walk. We strolled past a house in our neighborhood that had  succulent plants for sale in the front yard. Sitting next to a huge beautiful jade plant was a little  kiwi succulent (green with pink tips).  I slipped the 50 cents in the mail slot on the door and we walked home while I chatted all about the grand plans for my kiwi succulent in my hand. Soon after that night the gathering, splitting and growing of succulents soon took over our porch. Due to the unique shapes and not typical wedding flowers I had in mind, my fiance was all for the succulent farm to begin.

My first trip of the season to the local nursery Leitner’s, I saw these beautiful “Living Art” arrangement and needed to capture the beauty.

If you are wondering “what could you do with those cactus looking plants for a wedding” … Here are some cute succulent wedding images for inspiration!
