Maternity Panama Tee Dress + A Little Birth Story

We weren’t originally planning to have maternity photos taken, but I’m so glad we did! It’s just one of those memories that’ll be nice to have documented later. In the beginning of my pregnancy, I started taking weekly bump pictures, but that fizzled out pretty quickly once I forgot to take them for a week or two (in my mind, if I didn’t have every week, it wasn’t worth finishing… which probably wasn’t true, but whatevs… that’s how my brain worked at the time…). So, a huge thank you to the lovely Amy of Amy Lynn Studios for taking these! We love how they turned out!   For the dress, it was a week before we were supposed to get our photos done and I realized I didn’t have anything to wear. I mean, I probably had SOMETHING I could’ve worn, but it was slim pickings at that point of the pregnancy (these were taken at 37 weeks). I scoured my closet and tried on the dresses that I had left hanging in there (I’d …

Wedding DIY: Part 1 | Bridal Party Proposal Cards + Bridesmaid Gifts

Happy Wednesday! Today is the day we begin the arduous but necessary documentation of all of our wedding DIY adventures. :) Because if you don’t write it down, it never happened. That’s what I tell my peeps at work. So here I am, living by my word. ;) Check back every week for another installment of the wedding adventures, if you find them interesting. Otherwise, just stop by anyway and say hi. Or don’t. Just do you. :) Okay, so you get engaged. Then what? For me, the next step was all about the bridal party. Honest moment here, I’ve never been a courthouse wedding kind of girl. There’s just something about being surrounded by all of the people that you love for that one awesome/epic day that always appealed to me. With that, though, comes the wedding party. How big do you go? How many on each side? Do you have to have the same number on each side? If I have everyone that I want up there, will there be anyone left to …

Catching Up… Maui Wedding Makes!

Let’s not talk about when I actually made these… ;) Let’s just jump right in… First up… TEAM BRIDE Shirts! The bride helped me with these ones… I broke out my Cricut for the first time in a LONG time (I’ve only used it a couple of times – here and here – but when I need it, it definitely comes in handy!!!). I cut and she ironed :) We ALMOST ran out of the vinyl, so we had to get creative with the cutting on the last couple, but we ended up having just enough!   The shirts are from here, and we used glitter vinyl that I’ve had sitting around for a couple of years. I can’t even remember what I originally bought it for :/ All of the shirts were mint except for the bride’s which of course was white and just said Bride. I originally had thought about buying them… but this way was so much better! Not to mention quicker and cheaper! See them in full bridal force here. :) Next up, the Hey June …
