The Wedding (Very Photo Heavy!)

Wow, where do I begin?? Well, first off, a hurricane decided to hit WA the day before our wedding. I had to change my plans. There would be rain, and no avoiding it. So, I moved my outdoor ceremony onto a veranda. I was really upset and panicked about it at first, but I think it was a blessing in disguise. 


My dessert bar

The day before the wedding was setup day. The great thing about doing it all DIY is I got to have it looking exactly how I wanted it to look. Our families really pitched in and helped here, and we really appreciate it. We simply could not have done it without their help. 


My bouquet

We were staying at the venue, and we decided to spend that night together. It was lovely. We were so exhausted from setting up, that we both got a really good nights sleep. We got up and had breakfast with my brother and sister-in-law, who were also staying there, before we both headed off to our respective getting ready locations. 


Yep. I totally wore sneakers to my wedding.


My necklace says 'Jesse's Girl'

It rained basically right up until the time I arrived in the driveway of the venue. It stopped for our ceremony, and then started again for about an hour, then the rest of the night was lovely. It was very humid. So humid that my hair dropped, and most of my makeup slid off my face. But I don't care. I had the absolute best night ever. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Everything was absolutely perfect. Everyone says 'you'll run out of time, and you won't remember things, and it's all a blur' It wasn't. I spent time with everyone. I was relaxed the whole night. And it wasn't a blur. It was exactly how i wanted it to be. The only thing I would have changed is getting to eat dessert. It was all gone by the time I got there!!! 





I also loved all the vendors I chose. They all turned out to be amazing, and I'm so thankful that they were part of our day. 


We didn't have any bridesmaids or groomsmen. We did include our niece and nephews though!



Isn't it lovely when things just work?






My mum. She looked absolutely gorgeous


I just adore this photo of my brother Tim hugging Jesse

My sister-in-law Abby was telling me she wasn't going to cry, then balled her eyes out.

We had a food truck come and cater. It was absolutely amazing. Cheeseburger spring rolls anyone?

This shirt should be pretty self explanatory. It's not in the fat section, but it should be. 

Short and sweet from me today!!

Dress - ModCloth
Necklace - ModCloth
Belt- City Chic

Friendship Spotlight - Alex from Jet Georgette

Hi!!! I didn't intentionally get a blogging break, it just kind of happened! I'm still trying to get back into it, so although my intention is to come back to regular blogging, it might not happen right away. And that's OK. 

I'm back today today to talk a little bit about Alex, because it's nearly her birthday, and well, because. I know I talk about her a lot, but other the last few weeks I feel out friendship and grown and strengthened even more than it was before. It's like a tree, and the roots are moving further down into the ground, and further out from the trunk to making it stable and strong. 




I think it is really important to surround yourself with like minded people. People who really truly 'get' you. For me, Alex is one of those people. She totally gets what I'm about. She gets my style, my sense of humour, my passion, my psychology, me. 

The other thing I think is really important is friends who challenge you to grow. Alex is also that for me. Completely unintentionally, and almost subconsciously, she has challenged me to grow. To be even more OK with being me. She has brought out more of me. More meness. It's like it was in there, and it was waiting for someone to coax it out with a cookie. 




Don' get me wrong, all the people who are currently in my life as friends as there because I want them there. They are there because our love in mutual, because they support and encourage me, because I can count on them. And this is super important. I've said it before, and I will continue to say it. Its' really important to get rid of the people who bring you down. 

I have never had a very large friendship group. To me, it's really important to have a connection with people, to have a trust in my friends, to be able to count on them. To have no judgement, or fear. The people who I truly, wholeheartedly let into my life are few, but they will stay there forever. 




I hated Alex when I first met her. She breezed in to our very first dinner late, and tall and loud. She is openly obnoxious. But, then I fell for her pretty hard and fast. It's hard to explain, but we are each so OK with our authentic selves, and how and who we are in the world, and we see those things in each other, and our similarities in ourselves, and it fuels our fires, and keeps us doing what we do. 

I love you Alex!
