What I wore today: 03/29/2014 (Pretty in Pink)

Pretty in Pink Outfit: Anthropologie pink and gold lace and sequin "Sugarberry Dress", thrifted London Fog rain coat, Anthropologie pink suede kitten heels, thrifted floral cardigan, Kate Spade Emma book cosmetic pencil case

I fell in love with this dress when it first came in to the store back before Christmas. But, at $298, I just couldn't justify the purchase, even with my employee discount. So, you can imagine my surprise and joy when I found one in February marked down to $39.95. It was a 4, and, though I could squeeze myself into it, I tracked down a 6 at the Louisville store and had them send it to me. 

Knowing Ryan and I had tickets to the ballet at the end of March, I saved it for the occasion. I even got lucky with a day of 40-degree stormy weather, which meant tights wouldn't be an absolute necessity as they have been for time immemorial. 

We had a lovely date night, trying out a new restaurant in our neighborhood, which we had been saving for the occasion as well. Some things are worth the wait.

Wedding Week: Dancing

Wedding Week: Dancing

This is the final post of wedding week. I've really enjoyed using these photos to give you all a peek at our wedding day.

I think it really hit Ryan and I after our Friendsgiving party last November how much fun our wedding was going to be. We had all our friends together that day: getting to know each other better, eating, drinking, and dancing. Afterward, Ryan said he was really excited about dancing with everyone at our wedding.

Ryan created some incredible playlists for our wedding and asked his cousin to DJ, so we had great music all night long. Our friends and family love to dance, and we all had a blast that night. I was really surprised and impressed by all the great dancing photos our photographers were able to capture. Here are some of my favorites.

Wedding Week: Food & Drink

Wedding Week: Food & Drink

It was important to us to have delicious food at our wedding, and our caterer, Eat Well, did a great job. We had wintery bride-and-groom cocktails, a pasta bar, a grill station, and a pretty dessert table. We also had champagne, of course, and one of my favorite moments of the night was when everyone gave their toasts.

Wedding Week: Details & Decor

Wedding Week: Details & Decor

I had a lot of fun coming up with decor ideas and making things to decorate our space. I organized several craft days with friends and family in the time leading up to the wedding. Even though the decor was a lot of work, I think it really helped add a personal element to our wedding that was well worth the effort.

Thanks to everyone who helped create and set up the decor!
