This week Matt and I are celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary! Since I've been lazy lately, and don't have any recipes or craft projects to post, I thought I'd take a little trip down memory lane and share some photos from our 2008 wedding at the Heritage Museum of Orange County
I had a lot of fun planning our "big day" and I swear that after it was over I went through wedding planning withdrawals! As an interior designer, I took it on the same way I would take on a design project and it felt very natural to me. I did pretty much everything from organizing the vendors and writing the day's timeline, to supervising the set-up on the morning of the wedding. And of course there were a few DIY projects thrown in there. To say the least, I was an extremely hands-on bride. I know not all brides would want the same experience, but I am a bit of a control freak and to be honest, I loved every minute of it!
Luckily, my younger sister is getting married next summer and I will be Matron of Honor, so I will have a few chances to get my party planning fix! I am so excited for her and I have already started gathering ideas for a bridal shower and bachelorette party. I have a feeling that this is the first of several wedding related posts to come in the next year. Enjoy the photos! At the bottom I included a vendor list in case anyone is interested.

Note: The wicker furniture used in the cocktail area was acquired from a various places and stored in my garage up until the wedding. Most of it was from yard sales or picked up for free and needed a lot of TLC. I had all the pieces painted and custom cushions and pillows made for each one. After the wedding I was actually able to sell most of it and make some money back.
Thanks for reading!
