Tutorial Tuesday: All You Need is Love

Tuesday, July 21, 2009
monkeys on the bed!


How to have a fabulous, incredibly beautiful, and unique wedding (as done by my brother, Jeff, and his new wife, Lindsay):

1.  Location, location, location.  Beautiful train depot turned museum?  That will do!

2.  Keep track of who attended.  Each guest had their picture taken with the Fuji Instax camera (think Polaroid) and then signed their picture instead of a book.  So fun!

3.  Be sure to practice your reading over and over so you don't trip on the words.  I practiced many times, then ended up crying during it anyway : )

4.  A string quartet + guitarist?  Check.  The song:  All You Need is Love.

5.  Walking down the aisle with her dad.  Don't forget the gorgeous colors and flowers:

6.  Amazing lighting.


7.  Maid of Honor:  Lindsay's sister Lya in a beautiful teal (this may not be the actual color name...) dress.  Officiant:  good friend and former roommate of my brother, Steve.  Best Man:  Jeff's best friend since elementary school, Bryan.  Feel free to choose your own wedding party when planning a wedding : )

8.  Be sure to laugh!

9.  Dress to impress.  3 piece suit?  Check.  Zap Pow Shoes?  Check.  Adorable grin?  Double check.

The shoes.  I had to include them because I splurged and bought those fabulous shoes I blogged about here.  I did find them nearly half price on Amazon, though!

11.  If you get married on 7/11 be sure to have an appropriate groom's cake.  


12.  And don't forget the beautiful wedding cake!

12.  Very important:  dance, dance, dance!

12. And at the end of the night, you'll most likely be exhausted so....goodnight!

Congratulations, Jeff and Lindsay!  We love you!
