My Golden Girls.






Our wedding is in 3 months and I am so excited to be surrounded by so much love from all of our favorite people in one place. Thus far, the planning process has been a tremendous amount of fun – visiting, chatting, exploring, designing, creating, tasting…  While I may be speaking a bit too soon, I haven’t really felt an ounce of stress in the process. {please don’t let me be a bridezilla, please don’t let me be a bridezilla, please don’t…}.   

The Mr. and I have fairly specific taste and opinions about what we’re looking for in the evening so we haven’t been that fickle or indecisive in the process.  Certainly it’s probably fair to say that our planning and vision for the wedding is reflective of our life together – laid back, inviting, intimate, creative, adventurous and centered around love.

As we thought about the friends we wanted to stand beside us, there was little, if any, discussion.  We rattled off each others list without pause.  With a small sneak into a piece of our wedding, I sent each of these women a small package asking them to be a part of our day centered a theme of Gold.


bright, pure, brilliant, luster,

highly sought after, valuable, timeless

To me, each of these women is pure Gold.   These words – brilliant, valuable, highly sought after –  ring true of the women they are and the friendships we share.  I’ve picked a photo of one of many favorite moments I’ve had with each of them over the years.

{and of course V-love, my adventure-seeker extraordinaire and fellow bride as we trekked through Chiang Mai, Thailand on one of our many globe trotting expeditions}

I can’t wait to celebrate with each of you by my side.
