Goodbye to 2011

This year seemed to pass by faster than any other I can remember.
And there were plenty of changes that occurred...

I moved to a new city.  Hello Montgomery!

Started a new job.  Welcome to Alabama politics!

Moved into a loft - which is gradually becoming a home.

Got engaged! Read more about that here :)

Married my best friend!  See more photos here and here :)

And I just know there will be more changes headed our way in 2012...
And I can't wait :)

Have a safe and happy New Year's!

Our Wedding: First Look + Bridal Party

I have to say my favorite part of the day was taking pictures at our reception site.  We headed to
the Wynfield Estate in Montgomery, Alabama to have our "first look" and snap some day time photos.

Take a look...

All photos courtest of our fabulous photographer Colin Peterson.

Okay, and apparently "a few photos" to me means "more than you'd ever want to see" :)
The last batch of wedding photos will be  some of the ceremony + reception.  I'll post those soon!

Until then, have a happy weekend!

Our Wedding: Getting Ready

I'm finally starting to get back on track with things after the wedding.
The house is starting to come together, although there is lots of decorating still to be done!

So, while I keep decorating I thought I would share a few of my wedding photos with you.
These are just a few of us getting ready...

All photos are courtesy of our fabulous photographer Colin Peterson.

Having my mom and my sweet bridesmaids there on my big day was such a blessing.
I will always have fond memories of these moments.  I love each of you!

Up next I'll share some of our "first look" and the bridal party!

Antique hunting

Tuesday during my lunch break I decided to venture out to a little big place here in town
called Lulu's Attic to Antiques. They have everything from tables to candles, rugs to china
cabinets. And I am on the hunt for a china cabinet! I haven't found the perfect one yet,
but I'll definitely be going back to Lulu's and checking their inventory on a regular basis!

Here are a few pictures I took of the place...

Love that little white table!  Such a sweet shape - and it's only $60.

I am coveting that table with the metal top - so unique.

The daybed below was beautiful!  Very sturdy piece and only $200.

These are just a few of the wonderful things I found at Lulu's.
Oh, and I got to take this pretty painting home with me...

Thanks Mom for the early Christmas present!  I can't wait to hang it up :)
